Finke grid girls race towards record

 

 

 

 

 

Ex Alice Springs girl Puddy Gardner would like the opportunity to return to her roots and represent the race that means a lot to her: “Being an Alice girl at heart, it would be a great privilege to be able to represent my hometown and support all the participants – including my sister who races!”

 

The search for the 2013 Tatts Finke Desert Race Inland Electrical Grid Girls is only three weeks in and the record of applicants looks to be broken very soon.

 

They are the official ambassadors of the race which sees over 650 compete in an off road race on a motorcycle, quad bike, buggy or car from Alice Springs to Finke and back again over the Queen's Birthday Weekend in June each year.
This year 59 beautiful applicants from across Australia applied in the three month search period. The 2013 search looks to smash this with already 55 girls applying in the first three weeks.
