    • Challenge 4 = Side-slope and tractive ability (This involves a side-slope and a surprise)
    • Challenge 5 = A Rock climb and downhill (To test your uphill and downhill traction and control on steep slippery conditions)
    • Challenge 6 = Pit traction and control (My secret for now)
    • A slow dice - Just for fun


    Each challenge will be scored out of 5 and a total will be given at the end. (We hope to rope in the services of 3 marshals)
    The slow dice will be a timed event over a set distance, with the longest time taken the winner. (No braking allowed)

    Please comment if you need more clarity

    For the guys arriving on Sunday, we will meet at the Lapa at the Hadida camping area. Not the Giraffe Lapa any more.

    So do not go to the boom gate and pay, rather go to the Lapa and I will have the staff come collect the payments from us there.
    Sorry for being a bit behind the curve, I've never been to DeWildt, google streetview shows 2 paths going in, which do we follow?

    The paths are well signposted, and even the route to the campsite will be clearly marked.

    You will also see signs indicating where the 4x4Community meeting place is..

    Debby, my driver, is as sick as a dog, had her at the Doc yesterday, so we are looking for improvements today.

    I would hate to miss this, but if she is still ill, we are unfortunately out.
