What a legend! Chris Western
Our mate Chris Western reminds us of Mickey Thompson all the time, and for that, we think he's a legend. Chris has a winning attitude and his incredible spirit shines in everything that he does. Much like Mickey, Chris pushes himself to the limit for his passion - Off Road Racing.
During our mateship with Chris, Chris has seen seen 4 Class Championships in the Australian Off Road Championship Series, he has completed the iconic Finke Desert Race numerous times, and in 2014 Chris raced in the Score International Baja 1000 in Mexico.
The Baja 1000 is the pinnacle of off road racing, featuring racers from around the world. One of Mickey’s goals was to win the Baja 1000. In 1982 Mickey and his crew moved to Baja to battle against more than 200 competitors for the crown - and won.
When asked about the race in 2014, Chris said, '"Some people think it's too hard but if you believe in yourself and your car and never give up, you can do it."
Chris Western and his wife Kaitlin also own Off Road Rush in Queensland since 2002. Together, Chris and Kaitlin give the general public the opportunity to drive off road buggies, the first experience of its kind in Australia.
