W4 Challenge September 16 &17 2017
September this year will see the running of the 7th Annual W4 Challenge.
A weekend of family oriented camping, fun, frolics and 4WD-ing!
There will be about 8 course stages over the weekend. Participants will be split into groups, we try to vary the types of vehicles in each group as much as possible to let you compare the ability of many of Land Rover`s finest.
Some stages are progressive, points are awarded as you pass through “gates” along the way, If you think the track ahead looks bit to extreme for you, you simply take the points you have accrued and pull out.
Some stages allow you to plot your own path while looking for hidden punches to punch your score card.
Some stages may even be a mixture of the 2
All stages will see you loosing points for reversing, touching canes and excessive wheel spin. Plan your route carefully and the points will be plentiful.
None of the stages are speed based although there will be a time limit just to keep things moving as the transit tracks themselves can also be challenging.
This years Challenge sees us at a new venue near Bindoon. The property is picturesque and hilly, the stages are all part of the natural environment.
The camping area is still being developed so will be basic although it will have flushing toilets and a view across the valley. ( but not both at the same time).
Water is scarce and there will be no rubbish facilities, so please be prepared to bring everything you need, and take away everything you don’t need when you leave.
The track to the campsite is rough, no problem for camper trailers but may cause some difficulty for larger caravans and 2 wheel drive vehicles.
There will be a communal campfire on the Friday and Saturday nights to pull up a chair and have a natter.
There will only be a maximum of 48 places available this year and the only way to reserve one is to get your registration in and pay the entry fee.
