What about some of the stuff like we did at Bapsfontein?

A rally stage - they will battle to play with PC and Bogeyman

See how many vehicles you can drag over an obstacle - This could be quite interesting

The idle up a steep hill contest - This may not be in our favour other than the 3.0 td's but you have to give them something.

We could play "pull the 8 ton truck out the dam after jump starting it with batteries under water so that the air brakes can release"

You are allowed to use a bakkie as an anchor to stop the truck rolling.

Or if you want to change venues to the Transkei self recoveries like this would make for interesting competition.

Draai toetse:
Toets 1) hoe groot is die kar se draaisirkel teen parkeerspoed?
Toets 2) hoeveel keer kan die kar omdraai in 2 minute? (Vir die wat nie tussen die lyne kan lees nie, dis nou met ander woorde donuts...)
Mag ons ons kenniskry met lekkerkry aanhoukry.

Re: Patrol vs Cruiser 20 May - Moegatle

Post by offroadbiker » 07 Apr 2016 07:35

So after the meeting held last night the proposed date is the weekend of 20-22 May 2016.

Friday 20 May - arrival, set up camp and get to know one another.
Saturday 21 May - main event starting at 08h00 sharp as it is going to be a long day to fit in all the activities.
Sunday 22 May - Brekkie and pack up.

We would like for as many as possible to do the camping thing so as to make this a weekend event, but if you can only make it for the day, we will try and overlook this indiscretion....

Looking at no more than 20 vehicles per side and a maximum of 40 vehicles in total.

PLEASE NOTE - this will be a social event and NOT a competition :oldtimer: (ie none of those hated white poles!!!)

Preliminary planning is to try and pair every one up with a similar vehicle of the opposite brand.

Proposed activities - PLEASE provide input
  • drag race between cars in low range over 150m
  • idle up a steep hill contest
  • how many vehicles you can drag over an obstacle
  • rally stage
  • turn circle test
  • donuts
  • obstacle without diff lock
  • flex ramp
