    Quokka’s, school kids and tourists on bikes… navigating Rottnest Island

Quokka’s, school kids and tourists on bikes… navigating Rottnest Island

 

 

Only 19 km off the coast of Fremantle, but an entire world away, lies the sunny holiday island of Rottnest. Blessed with a casual atmosphere, picturesque scenery, dazzling marine life and some of the world’s finest beaches and pristine bays, Rottnest Island is Western Australia’s very own island paradise. It covers 1,900 hectares and can be considered one of WA’s must-see destinations, attracting over 500,000 people each year.

Ever heard of a Side by Side?

Quad Bikes are big, heavy and unstable.

Their high centre of gravity, especially when combined with a load strapped to the back, can result in the vehicle rolling over. According to Safe Work Australia, this has caused nine deaths since 1 January 2015.

This calendar year of 2015 there have been 15 quad bike fatalities across Australia. One in Northern Territory, two each in New South Wales and Tasmania and three each in Western Australia and Victoria and four in Queensland.

GET from A to B… via the Blackwood River region!

Over two nights in August RAC DTEC took a group of hardy travellers on a bush tucker trek tackling 4WD tracks from Augusta to Busselton and learning how to cook incredible camp food.

With a base camp in Hamelin Bay, the group came together on Friday evening to be welcomed by our RAC DTEC tour guide, South West Manager, Keith Harraway and side-kick Andy McLeod, DTEC Training Team leader and 4WD aficionado.

    Our motorbike trainer competes in the National Road Racing Championship

Our motorbike trainer competes in the National Road Racing Championship

RAC DTEC has expert trainers recognised for being at the top of their industry, with Leigh Boujos our motorbike trainer being no exception. Leigh recently competed in round 1 of the 2015 West Australian Road Racing Championship at Barbagello Raceway. Leigh’s success in the competition so far is a result of his extensive training in motorbike riding and racing. This highlights the importance of education and skills training in order to fully understand best practice methods in a safe and responsible way.

Leigh has always had an interest in anything with wheels and an engine, with a long standing family history in motorcycle racing which has led him to now ride with JB Racing on the state and national circuit. Round 1 of the Championship included three rounds and Leigh produced a great start to the morning having the second fastest time in the warm up, only 0.003 from the fastest time.
