Not long to go to Round 3 of the Odyssey Batteries Winch Challenge Series sponsored by Heritage Motor Insurance. This one is at Deep Scar near Kettering. Deep Scar has a bit of a fearsome reputation, but organisers plan to be sensible when setting out and do not intend the event to be a truck breaker. Having said this, don't be making the mistake that it will be easy. Hope to see you all there.
Plese try to sort your entries out in advance of the event. Pre payment is £50 but pay on the day is £60.
All entries and monies to be sent to the Viking Treasurer and Entries Secretary, Marilyn Elliott.
Also, not long to go to the Goodwinch Valhalla Challenge for teams of 2 trucks. entries will be allocated on a first come first served basis based on entry payment received - Max of 15 teams.
Total Off Road magazine have again announced they will support our series by running the event reports for each event. Many thanks to them.
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.
