Faggotter Takes Class Win at WA Tri Series

15 Aug 2013

Yamaha Desert Racing’s Rod Faggotter has won the E2 class (450cc bikes) and finished second outright after the final round of the Desert Tri Series in held in Western Australia was concluded recently.

Faggotter, the owner of a Centretune Motorcycles in Longreach, Queensland, has been a model of consistency over the three rounds contested. On his YZ450F, Rod has finished second, third and second in the E2 class and won the highly competitive category by six points over his nearest rival.

His results at outright level have also been impressive with third, fifth and fourth place finishes to lock down second place.

Each of the three rounds covered a minimum of 500 kilometres over a two day format. Two events were conducted in the Pilbara region with the other in the Upper Gascoyne area of Western Australia.

“It was a great concept for the organisers to combine these three events and make it a worthwhile series that can grow the endurance and desert racing scene in Australia,” Rod said.

“It’s not cheap to do events but I have enjoyed each trip over and feel it’s a vital part of my preparation for next years’ Dakar rally.

“Winning the E2 class made it worthwhile and there are a heap of people behind the scenes that help that result,” Rod ends.

Faggotter is a highly regarding endurance off road specialist who has competed at the highest levels around the world. He was the best placed Australian rider at the world known Dakar rally taking an amazing 14th place overall.
