JC Motor Sport Dakar Rally 2012

The Dakar rally is the world’s toughest and most followed sporting event comprising a 14 day point to point challenge based in South America.

Utilising navigational skills and stamina the competitors are to compete against the worlds best motorbike, car and truck riders. With over 3.5 million live spectators at the rally and over 2.2 billion TV viewers worldwide, this grueling challenge known to have up to 1 million spectators that line the street on day one, tests both the man and the machine and is well known for its frequent fatalities.

Exceeding distances of 600km per day and reaching speeds of more than 170 km p/h, the Dakar Rally is one that only the best compete in.  JC Motorsports Dakar 2012 features Jamie Chittick, long-time motocross rider and Managing Director of Liquor Home Delivery. Jamie aims to raise $120,000 by December 2011 to compete in the 2012 race.

After the theft of his bike, 2007 saw the year when once again Jamie Chittick hit the dirt. Entering in the 520km desert Gascoyne Dash in 2008, 2009 and 2010, Jamie ranked his best result of 10th overall and 4th in his 450cc class. Jamie has also raced in a number of other events including the Finke desert race in 2009 and 2010 ranking 51st out of 500 entries, the 12 hour Yilgarn Navigational Rally in 2009 finishing 9th overall and 4th in his class, the 4,000km Australasian Safari in 2009 and 2010 finishing 8th overall and 4th in his class as well as the 500km Indi 500 desert race in Port Headland finishing 17th overall.
