How tough is the Dust Challenge events?

Well, how long is a piece of string would be an easier question. But to make it clear to everyone taking part, or perhaps afraid to take part, we decided to try and answer this question. Especially with the upcoming event.

Well, how long is a piece of string would be an easier question. But to make it clear to everyone taking part, or perhaps afraid to take part, we decided to try and answer this question. Especially with the upcoming event.

Yes, the events carry the “Challenge” name, but that is only a name. Built-up vehicles with huge wheels and difflocks, roll cages, five point harnesses and bead locked rims are welcome, but all those modifications are unnecessary for these events. We are not planning to put you in any situation where damage to your vehicle is imminent. Although, 4×4 is a dangerous hobby and accidents can happen. But what use is a 4×4 if you only crawl malls with it?

The entire aim of the series is to give the guys that do not have all these modifications on their 4×4 the opportunity to use it in a challenging environment. And to test themselves against the guys with all the mods. Sometimes, the stock standard vehicle will even beat the highly modified challenger. That is the nature of this format of events. You will be pushed to a limit, but mostly your own limit, not that of the vehicle. Your performance in the events does not depend on how strong your 4×4 is, but rather on how skilled a driver you are, and how well you work as a team with your navigator.

That is the way we plan these events, and that is the way we will keep on planning these events. There will never be gates that only a Jimny on a diet can fit through. There will rather be fun and interesting ways of approaching obstacles that all cars can do. At the end of the day, we want you to have fun and get to know your vehicle better, not worry that you are going to break it.

From next year onwards, the name will change to just the plain old Dust Series, we will drop the “Challenge”, because it is not like normal challenges, but more like an adventure.

So don’t wait, enter today and make sure you do not miss out on the chance to #getyourduston
