I would like to share two of Peter's photos here :clap: And as far as I know only a cruiser could drive up here :blonde:
Christiaan, since you mention this particular obstacle (and only since you mention this one), would you not also like to mention what happened (or did not happen) at Koos se klim?

Great weekend out with the Patrol guys. Thanks to everyone that joined. Moegatle did not dissapoint, and Koos se klip is as intimidating as always. Was great to see the Patrols go up and down the rock and how the different models be haved.

As for the doughnuts- EPIC :oldtimer: :thumbup:

Christiaan, to my knowledge, two cruisers attempted this one, of which one was succesful, and two Patrols attempted it, of which one was successful. Sounds pretty even to me, untill you consider that both Cruisers had double lockers, and neither of the Patrols.

Further, please refrain from posting my un-edited photos on the Patrol forum. I have certain standards to maintain here. On your own forum, you can do with them as you please.
Mag ons ons kenniskry met lekkerkry aanhoukry.

I apologise Peter, please instruct me if I need to take them down. Its just your pictures are really amazing as it is and I did not think it needed editing. :redface:

As for the obstacle I was unaware someone did do it as well :salute: I know I attempted it and landed on my belly the whole time.

And as for koos se klim that is the only obstacle where one could really kill your vehicle and not just damage it and non of us really wanted to take that risk; not that we think we could not make it for the cars are more than capable it is more a thing of, if our driving ability lets us down and a mistake is made.

You guys are really a fun bunch of guys and very entertaining we loved it, thank you.
