Information

It’s provenance is unknown at this point but enquiries with some of those who knew this area in the 60’s and 70’s leads us to believe that the vehicle may have been abandoned after striking difficulties while headed to Anna Plains or similar for a Gymkhana possibly in the 70’s early 80’s. The track saw a lot more use in this period and the decade of the 80’s due to the oil and mineral exploration being undertaken in the Great Sandy.

The vehicle has certainly been stripped in the intervening years and has largely subsided into the shifting sands of the Great Sandy Desert.
