50hrs of expedition racing and a life time of memories are install as we reach the final race of the 2018 A1 Australia Series. The Wildside Adventure Race, as the name suggests will take competitors to the wild side of places.
It will be based on the sensational Myall Coast - 1hr from Newcastle, 2.5hrs from Sydney. This part of the coast is relatively untouched offering great adventure opportunities - lots of water, long stretches of coast and a rugged inland.
Teams will navigate through spaces and places rarely visited. They will encounter challenges as they traverse demanding landscapes in all weather conditions, day and night, day after day.
This is expedition racing so teams need to be self-sufficient. They will pack supply tubs which will be moved around the course and carry equipment, food and first aid supplies with them. The planning and strategy that goes along with this style of racing is a skill within itself.
As the final race of the season, it promises to be an epic race and an epic finish to the A1 Australia Series.
