The Finke Desert Race has been on my bucket list for a long time now. The iconic Australian race travels over 400 kilometres through the outback between Alice Springs and Finke. Taking 2 days to complete, the race is a dusty, gruelling trip for the competitors. It attracts huge numbers of competitors and spectators, with over 600 bikes alone competing in 2018.
Toby Price, a previous 5 time winner of The Finke in the bike division, is attempting to win both the bike and car division outright in 2018. Something that has never been achieved before. The team arrived in Alice Springs a week prior to the event weekend for testing. The vehicles were meticulously looked over and prepared before being put on display, along with Toby at a night festival to kick the event off.
