We are the owners of Off Road Rush in Queensland, a job that we have been doing since 2000. With locations on the Gold Coast and Ipswich there are vehicles and circuits to suit everyone's budget and location.
Ever since I was a little kid I have loved Off Road Racing and while working in resorts in Port Douglas the early 2000’s I decided to give the general public the opportunity to drive off road buggies, the first and still the only experience of its kind in Australia.
Now 19 years on, we, along with our team, 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 2009 I signed on with Mickey Thompson Tires Australia as Brand Ambassador and Sponsored Driver, and so the Off Road Rush Mickey Thompson Race Team was born, a partnership that we still have today.
This partnership has seen 4 Class Championships in the Australian Off Road Championship Series, completing the iconic Finke Desert Race numerous times, as well as my career highlight, the 2014 Score International Baja 1000 in Mexico, the pinnacle of off road racing from racers around the world.
The aim for us at Off Road Rush is to give you, the general public, the opportunity to drive V8 Buggies, the most extreme race cars there are. Our instructors are the best you will find and their priorities are simple, they want to keep you safe and have a heap of fun, which is what they do best. They are all off road racers that have a passion for off road and just want to share their knowledge and experience with you to ensure that you get the best experience possible.
To be able to combine our passion for off road racing, giving customers an awesome experience and doing this all with our family and friends is just the best. We are very lucky.
So, if you think you like the sound of this, would like to have a heap of fun and do something different you can choose any of our V8 race buggy or WRX rally car event packages, we look forward to welcoming you soon.
