Son of Trials PLUS
The Son of Trials PLUS is a family friendly 4WD event aimed specifically at novice 4WDers with standard type 4WD’s, those who use their vehicles as ‘daily drivers’ and those who have vehicles suitable for touring around the country. The tracks are designed to test your driving skills, not your vehicle’s capabilities. All tracks can be driven is a standard styled vehicle without sustaining damage. It’s a simple ‘funkhana’ type event with heaps of fantastic prizes on offer!
The 8 different tracks are a mix of hill climbs and descents, dry rocky creek-beds, skilled reversing stages, water, mud and sand stages and the like. This is a ideal event for any “first timers” entering a 4WD event and is also a great introduction to 4WDing in general.
