Hoops 4WD Renmark Enduro

Enduro Race Event – Event Information



Proudly sponsored by the team from Hoops 4WD Renmark, the Enduro is run in the open river and creeks.

About the race – Racers compete in a two lap time trailed course, competing for double championship points.  This race presents a challenge to competitors as the creek sections are raced backwards to the dinghy derby.  It is a race of endurance as weather conditions can make it quite challenging in the open river, not to mention the creek twists and turns.

 Race times – The race starts and finishes at the Renmark Club concluding with a Trophy presentation inside the club from 5.30pm allowing racers time to remove their boats from the water and return to the club.  After the race the committee requires a period of time to finalise race positions, disputes and any possible scrutineering issues.   It is also important to allow spectators who have been upriver sufficient time to return to the club along with Duty Boat personnel and other volunteers who have worked tirelessly to run the event.

Grid starts will be in the following format.  Race 1 consists of  classes, 30hp standard,  25hp, 300cc modified and 15hp, and are gridded at one minute intervals and two minutes between classes with an approximate 10am start.  Race 2 consists of classes 30hp Sports, 30hp Rookies and 30hp Super Standards with an approximate start of 12.30pm

Medical assistance – Event Medical Plus will be in attendance throughout the duration of the event.

Total closed water restrictions – will be in place from 8.30am to 3.30pm.  Total closed water restrictions ensure there is no boat movement during these times.   RDC suggest that you make your way up river and settle down for the day allowing sufficient time to be in place, taking into account the closed water period

Riverland Dinghy Club Merchandise – It is fantastic to have partnered with Ryde Clothing to retail our Club Merchandise.  Visit them in store on Murray Avenue or grab a bargain at the event. www.rydeclothing.co 

Please note date information:

The Enduro Race is scheduled as Round 5 of the Riverland Dinghy Club’s  6 Round STACER Championship Series.  Pandemic restrictions may require Round Events to be rescheduled so please check the website Notice Board for up to date information.


Dinghy Club Volunteers – Did you know the Dinghy Club is run entirely by Volunteers? 

The club requires volunteers to assist at all race events.  They participate in pre planning events, setting up on and off the water and pack up after the event.  Race rounds require, timing system operators, duty boat and closed water marshal, race starter, boat marshals, rescue boats, pre and post race scrutineer volunteers.   Recently as a result of the pandemic we have had to add Covid Marshals to the list (one for every 200 persons). 

If you would like to be part of this group and gain an insight into the workings of the club, don’t be shy, give us a shout out or email riverlanddinghyclub@hotmail.com and offer up your time.

We promise you will be made to feel very welcome, they are a happy bunch of Volunteers.

The Renmark Club and Balcony area are also ideal to have meal and view the start and finish of the race.
