    YES, LET's GO FOR IT, but only if the organisers are linking it in some way to a Charity that will stand to gain from it. Would hate to see hundreds or thousands of 4x4's traveling for no purpose but wasting fuel . .

    Default 17 Nov 2007, World Record Attempt.

    I have attached some maps and Google pictures of the venue for the upcoming WORLD RECORD ATTEMPT for the "Biggest 4x4 gathering ever"

    PS: Big Red, you want mud, so after the first proper rains I will call you, trust me this place has mud . . . . These guys from Team Outlaws own around 26 serious offroad obstacle / crawler vehicles amongst themselves and to give you an idea, just one member "Mark" (crazy as hell) has had no less than 49 roll overs on those obstacles

    All,

    I have called Ian and he wanted to email me somehting to tell us about more about it. In a nutshell, they want to get the record of the most 4x4 vehicles in one place.

    The idea is to get there, park and have a good chat with who ever is there. All proceeds are going to some or other charity.

    They do not expect much time (nor space) to play, but a small track is available (inlcuding a mud hole)

    I gave Ian my email and said I would post it here and get some guys together, but I have not heard from them again

    No offence to anyone but this event is something that I'd stay far away from. The thought of being jammed in with a gazillion city slicker 4x4 drivers makes me shudder.

    Yep, as Big Red has indicated, it IS NOT a 4x4 offroad event, but simply an attempt to get the most 4x4 vehicles together ever, and in the process set a NEW WORLD RECORD.

    As BigRed, I have unfortunately also never received any of the promised emails . . . . and after a few follow up calls have given up. Maybe they will catch a wake up closer to the time

    I'll give this one a definate MISS..... with the attitude (nill emails nor calls) I reckon we should boycot this event

    I too cannot agree more with Spike, It'll be a loooooooong day with all the city slickers trying to park (and then move) their 4x4's
