KIWI 4x4 Teams Challenge

Postby mike » Tue May 16, 2017 2:52 pm

Hi All,

Kiwi 4x4 Teams event is on at Queens Birthday weekend again. This years is going to be the hardest yet, with most tracks taking an hour to complete and some where you will be pushing 1.5hrs! These tracks are insane and challenging and not for the faint hearted. If you want seat time, then this is the event for you, if not stick to trials. There are 14 tracks and we doubt if anyone will finish this time. The night stage is going to be fast and furious where the v8's will steal the show.

Entries are filling fast so get yours in before you miss out. Entries are capped at 14 teams. South Island teams free entry due to ferry costs.

Remember Three trucks per team, work as a team and you will take the trophy home.

Camping available onsite from Friday till Monday.

Last years filmed by NZOffroader.

Hi, have emailed kiwi4x4nz to see if there are still places and to see what the vehicle rules are and the event requirements / format are but haven't had a reply.
Is it correct that each team is meant to provide a marshall. will they be stuck in one place or get to move around a bit.
Thank you
Cheers
Tim

Tried to enter last year, we didn't receive a reply. I'm keen to get there sooner or later but it's the South Island winch challenge series has started & a lot of people will be doing that.

Hi Reece not from the South Island, Auckland. One of my team members sent emails but didn't get a reply. I'm heading to the SI for some of the rounds, but will be keen to enter a team for Kiwi challenge next year.

Good luck guys and girls
We can't make it this year so someone will have to take lots of photos
Hope you don't get the heavy frost like a few years ago
Try and find a camping spot that is not in a hollow
Take more beer than you think you need
The mud hole is deeper than it looks(and colder)
That's about all I can think of in the way of advice ( remember the beer)
