We talk to Jason Lock, one of the Judges for the 4×4 Australia 4×4 of the year competition.
Jason scored a dream job, heading out with the 4×4 Australia team to judge the 4×4 Australia 4×4 of the year.
What vehicles where on the long list and how did they narrow the field done to the short list? Jason talks about the entrants and the judging process. All of the vehicles were stock, so there were no after market mods, including tyres! This obviously makes a big difference because some of the vehicles would really struggle with roadies on.
Which 4x4s where on the long list?
Which 4WDs made it to the short list?
How did they run their tests? A really interesting story about determining the best 4WDs in Australia.
The 4×4 Australia 4×4 of the year is a major milestone for vehicle manufacturers, so it is great to get an insiders view of the judging process and what makes the grade and what doesn’t.
