Tin Tops Ready to Rumble at the Dash

Posted on

The 2019 Coral Coast Helicopters, Kickstarters Gascoyne Dash is set to light up the north west and a strong field of 35 entries are ready to get down to business. The Dash typically has been a favorite amongst the tin top competitors and this year has been no different

In the 2wd classes we see #427 Chris Hill making his debut in the Idlewild Off Road Chevy Silverado. The big truck will start as class favorite, but will be wary of the threat posed by the #455 Trophy Lancer of Russ Cullen and Fluffy Fahey. The final 2wd entrant is the iconic Performance 2wd Kingswood run out of the WA Off Road Junior Development Program stable. Matty Beck is back for another run and will be sure to fly the flag high for the team

The Extreme 4wd class will feature a red hot battle and this one really is anyone’s game! #807 John Pursehouse saddles up in his Ford Ranger and will surely start as one of the class favorites. Peer Horn in his Mercedes G Wagon thrives on this style of event and will be looking to emerge from the desert victorious. Greg Pickersgill fresh from a run at Perenjori is now acclimatized to his GQ Patrol and will be another to watch. The final 2 competitors in the class have gone toe to toe in the north west numerous times and the #848 of Mitchell Davies and #866 of Mark Murray will be in strong contention for a podium finish
