Tatts Finke Desert Race, 2021 Race Dates

15 June 2020

We wanted to reach out to you all and let you know the committee is straight into organising the 2021 Tatts Finke Desert Race which is shaping up to be bigger than we could ever imagine.

There seems to be a truckload of people already planning their trip for next year so we want to make sure it’s the best one yet!

 Lock the following dates into your calendars:

  • Thursday 10 June 2021 – Finke Street Party and Night Markets
  • Friday 11 June 2021 – Scrutineering
  • Saturday 12 June 2021 – Prologue Day
  • Sunday 13 June 2021 – Race Day 1
  • Monday 14 June 2021 – Race Day 2 & Presentation Night

 We also wanted to let you know that while the committee was able to cancel the order of merchandise we had coming for this year (thank gosh otherwise we would’ve suffered a huge loss with the cancellation of the event), we did get 500 stubby coolers which had already started production.

We have decided to put these into a limited edition pack to commemorate the race that didn’t happen as a keepsake for people to remember the pandemic that stopped the world. Each poster is hand-signed by 2019 Bike King of the Desert, David Walsh and there are now less than 300 remaining – so head to the website to get your pack before they’re all gone.

The proceeds from the sale of the limited edition packs are going into the operational costs we must still pay even though there was no event.
