REVVED UP: Chinchilla's Tara and Dan Czislowski are close to becoming the Australian Off Road Superlite A Champions.

CHINCHILLA'S Dan and Tara Czislowski are headed towards becoming Australia's number one Superlite A champions after competing at the BFGoodrich CAMS Australian Offroad Superlite 2017 - and they've been racing for just a year.

The husband and wife team are sitting tight waiting to hear if they will be crowned class champions after competing at the Rainbow Desert Enduro at Rainbow, Victoria (400km north-west of Melbourne), earlier this month.

"Dan and myself were leading our class before the final round held at Rainbow where we were leading our class on day one, but unfortunately we had a DNF on day two,” Mrs Czislowski said.

"Now we are just waiting for the points from all the national rounds to be calculated to see where we have ended up overall but fingers crossed we have accrued enough.”

Points are accrued across different stages of three rounds of competition and are expected to be finalised in coming weeks.

"Coming in to that race we were 400 points ahead, we got 200 points for day one,” Mrs Czislowski.

"I've calculated many times and I think we're seven points ahead, it will be very close between us and the other guy who is number one and number two.”

The dynamic duo have gone from strength to strength after they placed second in their class when they raced for the first time in October.

"We were so excited about it and now we are hooked,” Mrs Czislowski said.

"After winning our class at the Stackpoole 400 near Griffith in March this year, we have had two major sponsors come on board, GJR Motorsports and Brown Davis, who play a major part in supporting us.

"We are also supported by PDS and Specialty Services who help make our dream a reality.”
