Weet nie of hierdie selfde event was nie(?): http://that4x4.co.za/the-clash-of-the-nissans/



Bridgestone 4×4 Club Challenge 2014 Episode 3: Nissan Off-road Club
Some were massive, and some were just large. Indeed, round three of Bridgestone South Africa’s 4×4 Club Challenge drew an allsorts field of 4x4s, fronted mainly by the Nissan Off-road Club clan, and the brand’s super-duper Patrol wagons.
Hosted by the Nissan club at the 4Wheel Drive Club of South Africa’s Base 4 track near Hartbeespoort Dam, the field of 30 teams consisted mainly of Nissan 4×4 models. These included a bevy of large Patrols, a few Navaras and Pathfinders, a Terrano II, as well as number of Hardbody bakkies.

The field was augmented by a handful of free agents – competitors in other brands who were only looking to have some fun and who were not eligible to qualify for the Club Challenge final in November. This included a Mahindra Thar, two Suzukis, a Toyota and a Mitsubishi.


The competition got underway with an unusual twist. With their 4×4 parked at a peculiar angle on a slope, teams had to remove the right rear wheel and replace it, all inside five minutes. It sounds easy enough, but it certainly proved to be the opposite, as most teams failed to complete the process inside that tight five minute window.

Obstacle two was a more traditional one – a climb up and over some rocks and a precision stop on the crest, where the nose of the vehicle just gently had to nudge a pole, rounded off with a tennis ball perched on top. Hit the first pole too hard, and it would connect a second one, resulting in zero points. Here it was all or nothing for most teams. Some went at it too hard, resulting in no points, while others were too cautious, with too little momentum also resulting in no points.

Obstacle three was as traditional as you get on a Bridgestone event: a tough climb between the poles, over a few large rocks and boulders, with a sharp turn at the most tricky part. Here it was all down to the correct line and momentum, as well as the nut that holds the steering wheel. Although a few teams fared brilliantly here, other faltered, taking out a few poles along the way.

The next obstacle looked like a drive in the park – but proved to be the opposite. Competitors had to steer their way around a tight, flat track, with a tight turn to boot. Sounds easy, right? Except that the co-drivers had to do the driving here, instead of the regular competitors. Besides being especially tricky for the bigger 4x4s, some of the inexperienced co-drivers, many of whom had never driven the team’s 4×4 in a competition, had a really tough time here. Yep, it certainly didn’t look difficult at first glance, but the score sheets told a completely different story!

Following on from the seemingly easy test, obstacle number five was another drive through some narrow gates, and the teams had to again just nudge a pole with a tennis ball. However, this time they had to do it in reverse, which changed the game completely. Many more points were lost here.

Obstacle six was a more traditional 4×4 one… an axle twister, through some wide gates. Some competitors even managed to crack a smile here again, after losing bags of points already. Obstacle seven followed directly after, and competitors had to perform a reverse stall-start – basic skill when 4×4-ing. With a marshal in the passenger seat, the smiles grew bigger still.

Obstacle 8 was more of a tester. A tricky drive through a donga, over a steep, rocky crest and another tricky stop to finish was next. Few teams did well here – the combination of the tight track, rounded off with the precision stop at end caught out many crews. Along the way the teams also had to complete two question-and-answer challenges, relating to matter of nature, and matters of responsible off-road driving. Here brain matter, common sense and a good general knowledge of all things nature and 4×4 were the order of the day.

The last action of the day was a winching exercise, hosted by co-sponsors Opposite Lock. Each team had to use a VPS winch, as sold by the Opposite Lock franchises, and fitted to an Opposite Lock Ford Ranger, to winch their own vehicle out of a difficult position. As on previous events, many crews found this process – with an experienced marshal on hand to show them the ropes – to be an invaluable learning experience, as few of these off-roaders have actually ever used the winches on their 4x4s.

To the results then. Third place overall belonged to the Nissan Hardbody V6 of Vaughn Ashford and Liza Williams. The team won a set of Light Force Striker spotlights. Second place went to Tim Klopper and Schalk Viljoen, in a Nissan Terrano II, and the team won themselves a set of Opposite Lock spotlights.



Proving to be the class of the field though were Christiaan Visagie and Matthew Ritson, in a Nissan Hardbody V6 single cab. The duo won a R10 000 tyre voucher from Bridgestone SA.

The next event on the 2014 Bridgestone 4×4 Club Challenge menu will be hosted by the Isuzu Off-road Club, on 24 May. An 11-part television series, documenting each club event, will be screened later this year on DStv’s Ignition channel.
