It's a bit early days for the 2020 series of events, but we are working on updating the website with all the relevant info for this year.
There has been a big change in the way MSUK do their licenses which has had a knock on effect on how we will run things in 2020. The main difference is that EVERYONE will need an MSUK competiton license, whether you do Orienteering events or Challenge events. It doesn't matter if you are a driver, a winchman or a passenger, everyone will need a license but the good news is ITS FREE. All of our events will be classed as Clubman RS and as a result - every competitor will need to be a Viking member, but we have tried to reduce the impact by dropping our membership fee to just £10.
MSUK event insurance fees are going up by £5 per truck, so we have put entry fees up by £5 per truck to cover this cost, but we still offer the cheapest entries for any kind of motorsporting event.
As per usual, our year will beging with a stand at the Indoor 4x4 Show in February and we will post our event dates as soon as we are able.
For bang up to date info on what we are doing - check out our Odyssey Batteries Winch Challenge facebook page.
If you require any further information on our events or even about the Viking 4x4 please get in touch with 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.
