Comment on Finke Desert Race moves to secure its future by Baron Von Knowitall.

I am surprised that for something that is part of all the locals (among many other people) memories and life experiences that the NT Government aren’t putting more money and effort in making it better and bigger!
Come on Giles, chuck some money at it take some credit for making it the best weekend on the Alice Springs calendar (of which it pretty much is anyway)!
I’m also very surprised that the prize money is nothing compared to the cost of racing God bless all the competitors and volunteers.
