The Kickstarters Gascoyne Dash is known as a genuine desert race, it is one of the toughest challenge across some of the harshest and remote country in Australia. Situated between the seaside town of Carnarvon and Gascoyne Junction WA - where the desert meets the sea. The Dash is an annual motorsport event that pits car against car and bike against bike and then the quickest of each against each other to determine who will be crowned the "King of the River".

The race takes place between Carnarvon and Gascoyne Junction, Western Australia and is raced across some of the harshest terrains in Australia. The Dash refers to what previously was boats racing down the flooded Gascoyne River however the river rarely flows so bikes and cars replaced the boats.

A comparison has been made between the Dash and the Finke Desert Race. Both races are a true test of machine and competitor, both are races that promote the unique Australian outback. The Dash is a point to point race over a hugely varied landscape, a cross-country course extensively consisting of natural desert and outback terrain. In excess of 500km over two days the Dash is long and tough; it is an ultimate challenge.
