The Wynns Safari was Australia`s answer to the Paris-Dakar and, oddly enough, Mitsubishi seemed to win a lot of both events.

Involved with the organisation of the Safari from the early days and through to the 2004 event, by which time it had been renamed the Australian Safari, author Bob Carpenter has a unique knowledge of the events, the people and the routes.

It is a great story with many anecdotes that reflect the mood of the day and the event. It is an unputdownable read and a lot of fun for anyone, but especially for Safari enthusiasts.

This history of the motoring adventure that helped to tame Australia's outback over the past two decades, gives a day-by-day account and full results of each event, routes, distances and complete list of every competitor from 1985 to the present. Personal experiences include those by Peter Brock, Bruce Garland and others.
