Fresh off a title in the 2018 NSW Off-Road Championships, Macleay's Richard and Terese Wilton have set their sights on a victory at their home event, the Scott's Hydraulic Services Dondingalong Off-Road Challenge this Saturday.
The married couple finished in second position in the Super 1650 Division, second outright and first in class for NSW Long Course last year.
"The goal is to always finish in first position but we are in a pretty competitive class and it's always a challenge," Terese told the Argus.
"There's a lot of talented drivers coming to Dondingalong so it's going to be a very competitive weekend.
"A lot of lower classes understand that you don't need a big pro buggy and V8 engine to get that top spot."
The two-days of racing at Dondingalong, which is also the second round of the NSW Off-Road championships, will commence at 9.30am on Saturday.
The Prologue, which is a shootout to determine the starting positions for the races, begins at 10.30am.
Saturday will also see the first two rounds of the competition.
On Sunday, racing will get under way at 9am with three races to take place.
The outright winner of the event and each class winner will have the lowest combined time from the five races.
Terese encourages locals to attend the spectacle.
"Dondingalong is one of the great short tracks to attend as a spectator," she said.
"You can the majority of the track and it will be a good couple of days of racing."
Entry is free.
While the focus for Richard and Terese is this weekend, the couple will have the overall standings in the NSW titles at the back of the minds.
The partners are searching for the overall championship title, which they narrowly missed out on last year.
Richard and Terese were able to overcome a setback to finish in fourth in class and eighth overall in the first round of 2019 at Colo River in April.
"We had mechanical problems in the third heat and Richard did really well to be able to finish the race in second gear," Terese said.
"We managed to fix the issue and recover well.
"We definitely want to be the outright champions but we need to take it one event at a time.
"We are a little better at the long course events and the rounds start with short course, so hopefully we start well and finish even stronger."
At the time of print, there was 20 vehicles entered into the competition with that number expected to rise ahead of the event.
