The Outback Air Race is an event that raises much-needed funds for the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) of Australia. The race is a GPS-based navigation time trial throughout the remote Australian outback which covers over 3,900 kilometres between Darwin and Coffs Harbour.
Santos was proud to be the 2022 Roma Leg sponsor with as many as 60 competitors in 30 aircrafts. Santos staff were on hand to educate participants on our activities in the region and thoroughly enjoyed an evening with the committee and participants.
In its 16-year history, the Outback Air Race has raised over $3.1million for the Royal Flying Doctor Service, with funds from each race going towards equipping RFDS aircraft with essential medical equipment vital for treating the sick and injured patients. Santos’ support of the Outback Air Race is another example of our contribution towards the sustainability of essential community services in the region.
