:woo: :woo:

This is an event that nobody can afford to miss.... It is done totally different to previous years, so we as a club are going to host "our event" for our club so we are going to compete against ourselves !!!!
So EVERYBODY must come join... even if you are not a member of the Nissan 4x4 club!!!!!!

We would really like it if we can get 60 vehicles to enter, but need a minimum of 40. The obstacles are no different to what we have done before on other events, so no excuse guys.... :rolling:

The prizes are fantastic, and the competition will be fun, but serious..... seriously fun!!!

Yip... if we get minimum 40 Nissans for the Nissan club or Nissan owners that are here on the Forum ( both nissan4x4.co.za and patrol4x4.co.za ) then we don't need to invite other clubs to fill the gap. But if we fall short of the 40 vehicles we will have to send out invites to other clubs.... so guys and girls.... get a team ( driver and co-driver together ), enter the Challenge, if you do well and make it to the final at the end of the year, then you will compete against the other clubs winners.

Like I said earlier Bridgestone has re-looked and remodeled this event, and made it great for all clubs to become a part of the Bridgestone Challenge. So it is going to be different from previous years !!!

Well if I had the money, I would have had three patrols.
a) One just for long distance overlanding (4.2, probably NA).
b) Once for the more civilised family holidays (4.8, later model with all the gadgets)
c) And my first love (Wtiblits) for all things a Puma and and a double locking LC would rather best avoid.

...okay, maybe also a SWB....
