A Toyota LandCruiser 75 and a Toyota Prado GX have overcome torturous conditions in the Western Australian desert to win their respective classes in the 5000-kilometre Australian Safari off-road race.

Neil Dunn and co-driver Mark Coventry brought their 2007 LandCruiser home first in the A1.5 class, while John Moralee and co-driver Greg Flood were victorious in the A0.3 class.

The two WA-based crews finished seventh and 10th overall in the nine-leg event that started in Kununurra on 24 August and finished in Perth on 1 September.

The Safari tackled Western Australia's most-diverse conditions, with auto and motorbike teams visiting tropical, dessert and forest terrain.

The Safari is Australia's version of the gruelling Paris-Dakar, an event that Toyota also enjoyed considerable success in earlier this year.

LandCrusiers filled the top-four places and seven of the top-10 in the T2 category.
