Odyssey Round 4 at Geddington Deep Scar near Kettering is our next event.
Deep Scar has a bit of a fearsome reputation, but the organisers have been quite gentle with the set up for this one, so the punches are not as tough as they have been in the past. That's not to say it will be easy, it's just that its less likely to be a car breaker.
If you've never had a go at doing a challenge event, then why not give it a go. At just £50 entry fee, there is no cheaper form of motorsport. Your truck will need to get through scrutineering and you will need an MSA competiton license to compete. You will never meet a friendlier bunch of guys who will help you through the day.

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.
