Holding the tradition at Winton Camel Races
Camel racing is a great tradition in the bush and the Winton races have something for everyone.
For one day jam packed with fun and entertainment including an 8 races program including the Winton Camel Cup, with gates opening at 10am till late.
This year we have a Motor Bike challenge with the 2009 wheel stand competition champion riding 1.1km on his back wheel; Ross Oakhill has set a high bench mark to beat!
Along with the Wheel Stand Challenge there will be Motor Bike Barrel Races and Bending Races with three age classes to enter in; 8 and under, 9 – 14 years and Opens.
Over $12,000 in cash and prizes to be won! Get ready for some rip roarin' one day only desert action.
Watch as these unpredictable yet magnificent ships of the desert battle their way down the dusty straight of the outback to the finishing line.
