The Simpson Desert is a mesmerizing destination for motoring aficionados all around the world. It’s an extraordinary experience because of the breathtaking beauty, ever-changing terrain, and unique flora and animals. The record-breaking voyage began at the crack of dawn in Birdsville and ended in Alkaseltzer Bore in 13 hours. During the 385 km excursion, the Scorpio-N encountered salt flats 20 meters above sea level, which posed a considerable problem due to high moisture content.
