Exciting news today from the Sunraysia Motor Sports Club with the announcement that Scrutiny and the public display for the Sunraysia 600 will be held at Nowingi Place, Mildura’s premier riverfront community events and entertainment precinct.

“We have received the final confirmations today for Nowingi Place, which is great news for the event and the Australian Off Road Championship. The Mildura Rural City Council have played a big part in making this happen; so it’s full steam ahead for the next 30 days” explained Jason Hannig, Club President.

 The open-air sound shell at Nowingi Place will be the perfect back drop for the live entertainment and the centrepiece for the static display of off road racing machinery. Supported by the Mildura Rural City Council, the Show ‘n’ Shine will make the most of the wide expanse of lawned area, giving crews, family, friends and spectators a great night of off road atmosphere.

Nowingi Place is located along Hugh King Drive on Mildura's riverfront, with its facilities focussed on community events. The area includes a playground, BBQ facilities, public toilets, bike paths, and its newest feature, a water park/play area for children. The water play area has spurts and spouts of water, shallow running water and varying textures underfoot for children to walk on. In the water there a wheels and things to push, pull, lift and turn and plenty of room to splash around. 
The Sunraysia 600 will have a new approach to the scrutiny process this year; competition vehicles will need to be in place in their prescribed position on the Nowingi Place lawn area by 3:30pm on Friday 8th April. Teams of scrutineers will make their way through the vehicle display throughout the afternoon night. More details on this process will be provided after the close of entries. 

“We’re trailing a new method for scrutiny this year. We’re expecting a large number of spectators and felt it would be a better experience if all the cars were in place before the spectators started to arrive. We’re asking teams for the assistance and patience with this new concept.” 

Mildura is an extremely busy place over the Easter holiday weekend with one of the draw cards, the Power Sports Good Friday Show ‘n’ Shine in the city hub at the Langtree Mall, attracting a crowd of over 15,000. The Sunraysia 600 committee will be out in force generating interest in the event with a vehicle display and giveaways. 

Track marking of the 100km course through Keera Station starts this weekend and with competitor list increasing daily, the opening round of the CAMS Australian Off Road Championship and the second round of the Victorian Off Road Championship should be a ‘cracker’ of an event.
