SSS Winch
Challenge

The Premier Winch Challenge Series..

SSS GPS Series2011

 

The SSS GPS began in 2009....

 

This event was designed so that Queensland competitors could practice/enhance their GPS skills in order to compete at other events such as Cliffhanger, Xteme Winch Challenges etc. It tests teams in off road driving, navigation and team work under the pressure of time. This event is open class however, as this is a timed event you must have a roll cage, harnesses, helmet and window nets.

Advertising in 4WD Action. The event will also be announced on Outerlimits.

We have a range of opportunities available for companies that wish to showcase their products and services to the growing industry of 4x4 sport.
