I didn't notice the attachment before, and I must say, I am deeply dissapointed.
Whoever wrote it has no idea about the 4x4 market (I assume it actually was somebody from Nissan, seeing as it is marked "Nissan-Strictly confidential".
Some points that immediately raise my ire:
1) They want to give accredited training to journalists, targeting on the specialist 4x4 publications. A number of us know a couple of Weg-Ry guys, and I also know a lady from Leisure Wheels. These people have all done these courses, most of them more than once. I think inviting them to a course would actually be seen as patronising rather than appreciated.
2) Sani pass? Seriously? Somebody did that in a near-standard Porsche 1911 a couple of years ago. Everybody who has driven it knows that, unless there's actually ice present, it is little more than a graded dirt road, and if there is ice present, all you're bragging about is your tires. If you want real 4x4 people to notice, do a river trip or Baboons or a trip to one of the remote islands in the Makgadigadi.
3) An off-road competition that is suitable for X-trails? Seriously? Need I even say more?
Seems to me they have managed to miss every single point we were trying to make.
