Well, 6 events done and dusted so far this year! Doesn't time fly!!
Our initial Orienteering/shakedown event ta Weekly Woods was very well attended and a good time was had by all.
Our 6 round Odyssey championship is halfway through, with different winners in each class at each event so far. Its very competitive with good sportsmanship shown by all.
The 5 car team challenge Ragnarok was well subscribed, with 7 teams eventually taking part.
Fresh from last weekend [1st & 2nd July] was the Valhalla 2 car team challenge with an excellent turnout of 14 teams all thoroughly enjoying themselves on the event with good weather as well.
At the end of this month 30 July, we once again turn ourselves to the more gentile art of Orienteering. This is designed so the more standard vehicle can partake, although all classes are catered for using a percentage scheme of scoring.
This event is to be held at Marefield, nr Tilton-on-the-Hill Leicestershire. All people are welcome, families as well. Orienteering punches to gain, picture clues for the children and a quiz as well!!
If you require anymore information please contact a committee member.
Viking 4x4 Club are an off road club based in Leicestershire which caters for all 4x4 vehicles from Bog Standard to Highly Modified.
In the past we have organised Trials and Green Lane runs but our main focus in more recent years has been Challenge Events.
We have run a very successful 6 round series since 2007. The series was formerly known as the LRS Challenge Series but is now Called the Odessey Battery Winch Challenge Series.
This series is known for its friendly atmosphere and helpful nature. Organisers are particularly keen to encourage newcomers to the challenge scene and is seen as very much focussed on Grass Roots competitors.
We also run the 2 day Valhalla Challenge which is still open to newcomers but is more suited to the more serious competitor. This event is for teams of 2 trucks.
For 2016, we are introducing a new 2 day event named ‘Ragnarok.’ This is for teams of 5 trucks and is aimed at the serious challenge competitor.
As a complete contrast, we run 3 Orienteering events, which are similar to challenge events but are far more relaxed and fun focussed. No winching is allowed on these, so competitors must find, then drive up to collect punches.
We hold regular club night meetings on the first Wednesday of the month at various watering holes.
