Wes Miller, founder of H-Bomb Media and the Bomb Squad, will be competing in Tattersall’s Finke Desert Race, the second round of the Australian Off Road Championship, June 10-13.
Tattersall’s Finke Desert Race is a two-day off-road race through the deserts of Australia’s Northern Territory. Miller will be using X-Rex tires from GBC Motorsports to help him conquer the Outback, as racers from around the world vie for the title of “King of the Desert.”
Originating in 1976, the Finke was initially an out-and-back off road race for motorcycles. Cars and buggies were introduced in 1988, and a fierce rivalry developed between two and four wheelers.
Always set for the long holiday weekend celebrating the Queen’s Birthday, the Finke Desert Race in Alice Springs draws upwards of 10,000 spectators along 460km round-trip course.
Miller will head to Australia fresh off his victory in the 450+ class at last weekends Tecate SCORE Baja 500 to battle with the best the Australians have to offer. “I’m really excited to head to Australia to compete in the Finke Desert Race,” sad Miller. “This is the premier desert race in Australia and I look forward to putting my Baja racing skills to the test.”
The X-Rex tires from GBC Motorsports are very popular in off road racing, and have made a huge impact in Baja events. “I really want to thank all of my sponsors for helping to make this happen,” said Miller. “GBC Motorsports has really stepped it up and events like this give me the opportunity to prove how great their tires are.”
With Miller’s strong background in media production, expect a lot of coverage to come from down under in the next few weeks. Wes is bringing a camera crew to help document their excursion, and share it with race fans.
