Cooper Tires Pajero Challenge 2009


New Member
The Cooper Tires Pajero Challenge 2009 is still accepting entries up to the end of January 2009.

Event Date : Sat 28th February & Sun 1st March 2009

This annual event is organised by the Pajero 4WD Club of Victoria and has become one of the best and most challenging self guided, off road navigational events in Australia.

Members of any 4WD club affiliated with there State 4WD Association can enter the Challenge, which can easily be undertaken in a standard 4WD vehicle with good off road tyres.

The Cooper Tires Pajero Challenge is a 24-hour 4WD navigation competition, split into four sections, each of which allows 3-4 hours of driving.

Each section includes:

- driving stage, where the driver and navigator(s) find their way from point to point, answering questions as they go. Many teams have multiple navigators and also swap drivers; it's a team event!

- checkpoints manned by members from various clubs

- special stages such as a written navigational test

- compulsory rests, and a campsite at start finish area

The focus of the event is teamwork, observation and navigation, not speed or hardcore 4WDing.
