    A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.

    I took a study break and watched it to, lots of good coverage, it is a pity that they only covered the two main classes though.

    Discokid on this site had a bit of footage - the car looked awesome.

    Looks like a great event - and as said fantastic scenery.

    Ben Grabham got it for the moto and Hederics/Williams for the auto.It looks like the smaller fourstrokes are the way to go hey.I think there was about 4 450 fourstrokers in the top 5.

    Was that DiscoKid in the Defender Ute?

    Some great footage!

    The TV show was good but I wasnt sure if they were promoting a holiday in WA or racing!

    It brought back a lot of memories of good times had on the safari

    I just need to work out what we are doing next year and whether we are going or not

    So many good races not enough time or money
