Andy Caldecott

Andy Caldecott (1964 – 2006) was an off road motorcycle racer born in Keith. He won the Australian Safari Rally four times consecutively (2000-2003) and was a competitor in the Dakar Rally in 2004 (DNF), 2005 (6th) and 2006.  In 2015 Andy was inducted into the Motorcyling SA Hall of Fame.  

During the 2006 Dakar Rally he won the third stage, but later died from a neck injury suffered when crashing during the ninth stage, 250km into the 599km special stage from Nouakchott to Kiffa. His was the 23rd death in the 28 years of the rally. 

Even though he pushed himself to the limits, he was known for his easy going manner and humility. Prior to his death he had operated a motorcycle shop in Keith.

The local speedway was renamed in his honour.

Andy left behind his wife Tracey and two children.

The memorial for the late Andy Caldecott can be found opposite Don Moseley Park Tourism Hotspot.
