WE NEED ALL SPECTATORS ALONG THE TRACK TO ALWAYS FOLLOW ALL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS. THESE INSTRUCTIONS ARE IN PLACE TO KEEP YOU AND OTHERS SAFE:
THE RACE MAY BE STOPPED INSTANTLY IF SPECTATORS DON'T COMPLY. IF YOU'RE ASKED TO MOVE - JUST DO IT
We will have Spectator Marshals located along the racetrack. Their role is to help keep you and our competitors safe and are our event’s front line public safety officials. If they think you’re in an unsafe location or behaving in an unsafe manner they will ask you to move. LISTEN AND DO AS THEY ASK. The Spectator Marshals will be supported by NT Police as required.
PLEASE RESPECT OUR SPECTATOR MARSHALS and OBEY THEIR INSTRUCTIONS.

The 'Finke Street Party & Night Markets' will be held on Thursday 8th June 2023 in the heart of Alice Springs on Todd Street.
Scrutineering is held at the Start/Finish Line from 4.00pm to 9.00pm on Friday 7th June 2024. This is where all competitor’s (bikes and cars) must have their machine and clothing checked and passed for racing. While scrutineering is happening, all bikes and cars are on display, food and drink stalls are in operation and official merchandise is also on sale. It’s a great place to get up close and personal with the riders/drivers and their amazing machinery. Additionally you can get a bite to eat, relax, catch up with mates, and get a great feel for the weekend to come.
You will need to be extremely aware of safety both for yourselves and our competitors. If you are camping with young children, please watch them at all times and stand 30m back from the track during racing. Don’t wander on the track, it may look clear but you can’t be sure of what is coming at you at race speeds. Standing on the outside of corners can be dangerous, so avoid this at all times – car and bikes are travelling at very high speeds in dusty conditions! Our competitors are focused on their race and are not looking for you, your kids or your dog – leave your dog at home! It is their track from 6am – 6pm, give them the respect they deserve! Avoid driving up and down the access road (next to the racetrack) during racing as the dust and traffic can be very distracting and dangerous for our competitors.
Maps of the track and diagrams of the venues are available as a 2023 Maps. These may be updated from time to time.
Scoreboards will display start, checkpoint and finish times at the Alice Springs Start/Finish Line next to the competitor relations office. Results for Race Day 1 and start times for Race Day 2 will be available at Finke Checkpoint and on the website. Some copies of the results from Day 1 will be available at the catering tent at Finke. The results will also be constantly updated on the event’s official website.
