A warm day made for good spectator viewing at the Hankook 4×4 Extreme Challenge.
With over 20 vehicles entering the challenge, spectators had more than enough to feast their eyes on.
There were 4x4s from plain standard vehicles up to the custom-built top trucks. The Monster truck arrived in style only to be hamstrung by an overheated gearbox. Izak Maritz, owner of the monster truck, vowed to be back next year. There were a lot of disappointed children who were looking forward to drive in the monster truck. They are also looking forward to next year. I’m sure that Izak will have something up his sleeve for the little one’s next time round! The obstacles were challenging but not unassailable and with the coaching from the marshals it should have been possible to overcome on the first try. Experienced drivers found it a little easier but the novices, sometimes, tried more than once to clear the obstacle. Jaco Horn, GTR, was unfortunate to miscalculate the driving line and gracefully turned his Landcruiser on its side. The damage was fortunately minimal and he could manage a smile after the scare. He also managed to complete the course. The day was well attended by the public with over 700 spectators visiting the 4×4 track. “We, the organisers, would like to thank all the entrants for their participation as well as the spectators for their support!” said Rikus Radley of 4×4 @ LakeUmuzi. “Without them and our sponsors, this day would not have been possible. We will list our sponsors in next week’s publication of The Bulletin.”
