Off Road Rush Sydney - drive a V8 buggy, WRX turbo rally car or a Yamaha YXZ1000R
Ever since Chris Western
was a little kid he loved off road racing and while working in resorts in Port Douglas, Chris decided to give the general public the opportunity to drive off road V8 Buggies with him as your navigator and this is where Off Road Rush was born in 2003.
Chris Western signed on with Mickey Thompson Tires Australia, as Brand Ambassador and Sponsored Driver in 2009, and so the Off Road Rush Mickey Thompson Race Team was born, a partnership that is still on going today. Chris has four Class Championships in the "Australian Off Road Championship Series", completing the iconic Finke Desert Race numerous times, as well as Chris's career highlight the 2014 Score International Baja 1000 in Mexico, the pinnacle of off road racing from racers around the world.
Now 13 years on, along with our team, we all still love what we do and have been able to give thousands of people in Australia plus international visitors the opportunity to come and have a heap of fun in the dirt.
In 2015 James and Leigh Rolton loved off road racing just like Chris & Kaitlin Western
they sold several business in New Zealand and moved to Australia with their daughter Grace to be part of Off Road Rush, and this is when Off Road Rush Sydney was born! In May 2016, we introduced the new Yamaha YXZ 1000R
to our fleet of drive vehicles
