Australia's Ultimate Desert Race

RIDERS AND DRIVERS RISK IT ALL AS THEY RACE ACROSS THE HARSHEST OFF-ROAD CONDITIONS IN AUSTRALIA FOR A CHANCE TO CLAIM VICTORY OF ONE OF THE MOST PRESTIGIOUS AND GRUELING DESERT RACES ON EARTH, THE FINKE DESERT RACE.

452 kms of Australia's least forgiving terrain from Alice Springs to "Finke" and back again

Finke Legacy

The 452km race takes places between Alice Springs and Apatula - a community once called Finke - and began in 1976 as a competition between local riders. 

A snaking course of heavily corrugated, vibrant red tracks, the ‘there and back’ race’s clout has grown steadily over the decades.  Finke competitors face two days of off-road desert racing that is so intense, a large number of entrants don’t complete the race each year. In 2019, TJM is a sweep vehicle partner for the Finke Desert Race offering support at specific distance intervals throughout the race, helping to keep the track clear and the event running safely and smoothly. When the dust kicks up on June 7 in Alice, TJM will be as close to the action as possible.

The Patriot Racer

Race ready; the Patriot racer is currently being towed 2,545 kms from Brisbane to Alice Springs

Equipped with TJM Suspension, the Patriot Racer will rough undulating sand troughs and dips as it tears it’s way across the desert.

Most racers hope to merely finish the race but this year success for the Patriot team will be defined by beating their time from 2018.

Armed with gear from Xray Vision, Dometic, Darche, Torqit, Brown Davis, GME and TJM, the vehicle has been custom built and tuned especially for the infamous off-road race.
