The 2016 series is now finished and planning for 2017 is already underway. The championship winners' names have been posted on the club's facebook page and entrants have 2 weeks in order to raise any objections before the results become final.
We've had a great - and very safe - year. The trucks have taken a bit of a beating, but no competitor, marshal or spectators were harmed.
A messive THANK YOU has to go to our series sponsor - Odyssey Batteries and to the companies which sponsored each individual round.
Goodwinch, Llama 4x4, Damar Webbing Solutions, Heritage Motor Insurance, Morris Lubricants, Alkmonton Tractors and Gigglepin.
2017 will be the 10th year of running the 6 round Viking Challenge series, so we're hoping for bigger and better things. The entry fee for each round will remain at £50, which must be the cheapest entry fee for any challenge event anywhere in the UK. You simply can not get 6 hours of competitive motorsport any cheaper than this.
Hope to see you all next year - Best Wishes from the Viking 4x4 Club committee.
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.
