Der australische Superstars Toby Price (Dakar-Sieger BIKE, TFDR-Multi-Sieger BIKE) schaffte den Hattrick sowohl auf dem Bike als auch in der 4x4-Klasse das Tatt Finke Desert Race zu bestreiten. Logistisch wurde dies mit einem Hubschrauberflug vom Ziel mit dem Bike zum Start der 4x4 Klasse gelöst (VIDEO-LINK), wobei er nebenbei auch die BIKE-Kategorie gewinnen konnte. Leider kam er in den letzten 2 Jahren mit dem Trophy Truck nicht über Tag 1 hinaus, weshalb er in 2019 nur noch als Red-Bull-Fahrer in der 4x4 Klasse startet. Folge? Er gewann schon einmal Tag 1 mit 8 Minuten Vorsprung auf den Zweitplatzierten!

BIKE CLASS

LOCAL HERO DAVID WALSH IN PRIME POSITION TOWIN HIS MAIDEN KING OF THE DESERT TITLE

Alice Spring’s own David Walsh (#2 KTM) is one step closer to his first King of the Desert title after blitzing the bike field to arrive at Finke in 1 hour 55 minutes and 25.7 seconds on Race Day 1 of the 2019 Tatts Finke Desert Race.The hometown hero lead the 612-strong field from the start line as he aims to take the elusive top step of the podium, having finished second in 2018, 2014 and 2012. Walsh was just over 5-minutes clear of next-best Jacob Smith (#299, Husqvarna FE), who moved up two places from a Prologued position of 4th.

In his eleventh Finke campaign, Smith (Condobolin, NSW) sits 5 minutes and 0.7 seconds behind Walsh as he looks for his first podium finish at the event in six years.Beau Ralston (#295 Husqvarna FE) was just behind his teammate, setting a time of 2 hours 2 minutes and 33.9 seconds on the rough and dusty track.In his second Finke campaign, Geelong’s Callum Norton (#X98 KTM 450) was one of five Victorians to finish in the top ten, coming in fourth ahead of tomorrow’s return leg to Alice Springs.The eighteen-year-old race favourite is only 8 minutes and 37.5 seconds behind the race leader, an impressive effort with many other race favourites not making it to the Finke checkpoint on Day 1.

Fellow Victorian’s Jack Simpson (Seaford -#296 Honda CRF) and Sam Davie (Echuca -#292 Husqvarna FE) were fifth and sixth reaching the end of Day 1 with times of 2hours 5 minutes and 46.1 seconds, and 2 hours 6 minutes and 10.5 seconds respectively. In seventh place and the first of the South Australian’s to cross the line was Mt Gambier’s Kent Collins (#4 KTM 500), 14 minutes and 35.1 seconds behind the leader. In their first Finke campaigns Thomas Jones (#681 KTM 500) and Nicholas Waters (#282 KTM 500) rounded out the top ten in what was a difficult day for all riders competing in Australia’s toughest off-road race.

Territorian Jack Dooley-McDonnell (#X99 Honda CRF) who third off the line this morning, failed to make the 223km journey to Finke as did race favourite Nathan Trigg (#10 Sherco).To celebrate the 20th anniversary of writing himself into the AFL record books, Sydney Swans legend Tony Lockett (#894 KTM 500) commenced his ninth Finke Desert Race campaign, on track to finish the day inside the top 350 riders.

After camping overnight, the bikes will leave Finke tomorrow (Monday) morning at 11.45am CST for the run back to the Alice Springs finish with the first bikes expected to arrive at approximately 2.05pm CST.The 2019 King of the Desert will be crowned following the bikes return to Alice Springs tomorrow.

TOBY PRICE ON TRACK TO CREATE HISTORY AT THE 2019 TATTS FINKE DESERT RACE

Red Bull racer, Toby Price(#487 Geiser Brothers Trophy Truck), has reached the Finke checkpoint the fastest on Race Day 1, as his looks to create history and become the first-ever competitor to be crowned the King of the Desert in the car category and bikecategory. The six-time winner of the bike category set an impressive 1 hour 44 minutes and 12 seconds as he made his way through central Australia on four wheels, alongside Navigator Jason Duncan.

Price has restricted himself to a cars-only tilt of the 2019 race, as he nurses his wrist back from injury sustained during his win of the iconic Dakar Rally earlier this year. Despite an epic rollover in Prologue yesterday, the pairing of Jack Rhodes and David Pullino (#91 Jimco Aussie Special) from Adelaide, SA bouncedback to reach the Finke checkpoint in the second fastest time on Day 1.Starting the morning from position 14, the 2018 podium finishes (3rd) completed the day with a gap of 7 minutes 44.4 seconds to the leaders upon arrival at Finke.The distance to third is less than a minute with duo Beau Robinson and Shane Hutt (#413 Geiser Brothers Trophy Truck) rounding out the top three times at the final checkpoint today.The pair from Perth, WA finished Day 1 with a gap of 8 minutes and 9.9 seconds to the leaders and will be hoping to hunt down Price tomorrow to take out the elusive King of the Desert title, after five previous podium finishes at Australia’s toughest off-road race.

NSW’s Josh Howells and Eric Hume (#3 Jimco Aussie Special) were a further 2 minutes and 27 seconds behind in fourth place, dropping a spot in the field from a Prologued position of 3rd.Moving through the field and finishing Day 1 in fifth position, Ryan Taylor along with Nev Taylor and Adam McGuire (#24 Tatum AK47) climbed 10 positions with Brent Martin and Andre de Simone (#120 Jimco) mirroring that effort to improve from 16th to 6th at the halfway point of the two-day race.After just missing the podium in 2018, Talbot Cox and Craig King (#16 Racer Engineering) are currently in seventh, around 14 minutes behind the leader.Off-road legend Mark Burrows along with navigator Matthew Burrows (#21 MBR Jimco Buggy) finished in eighth position with Dale Martin and Adrian Rowe (#133 Tatum) coming in ninth.A flat tyre halted defending champions and six-time King of the Deserts, Shannon and Ian Rentsch (#1 Jimco Buggy) during the final leg of the day between the Mt Squires and Finke checkpoints.

The father-son duo will start the return journey tomorrow from tenth, a gap of 17 minute 24.4 seconds to Price in first position.2012 King of the Desert Brad Gallard (#454 Geiser Brosthers Trophy Truck) suffered power steering issues during leg one, and will work feverishly overnight to rectify the issue and complete the return journey from Finke to Alice Springs on Race Day 2.Full results for the 140-strong car field can be viewed here. After camping overnight, the car and buggy field will leave Finke tomorrow (Monday) morning at 7.15am CST for the run back to the Alice Springs finish with the first cars expected to arrive at approximately 9.05am CST.The 2019 Kings of the Desert for the car category will be crowned when the field completes their return journey from Finke to Alice Springs tomorrow. The bike category got underway at 11.45am local time today, with the first bike due into Finke at approximately 1.45pm.The 2019 Tatts Finke Desert Race is held in Alice Springs on the Queen’s Birthday weekend from 6-10 June 2019.2019 is the 20th year of Tatts’ naming-rights partnership of the Finke Desert Race.
