2023 Event News
The entry fees for 2023 will be increasing only slightly we have not increase prices for event for many years
The Viking 4×4 Club is a not for profit organisation but we have to cover costs in order to survive. Due to increased venue and trophy costs the entry fees for single day CHALLENGE events. the events will have to go up to £65 (was £55) if paid in advance and £75 (was £65) any time after 8.00pm on the Friday preceding the event. It is the club’s aim to keep cost to a minimum, but fees may have to increase in reaction to increases in costs.
For now, the experience day fees will remain at £30.

Who Are We?
Viking 4×4 Club are an off-road club based in Leicestershire which caters for all 4×4 vehicles from Bog Standard to Highly Modified.
The main focus of the Viking 4×4 Club is to run Challenge Events and experiences days.
We run a very successful 6-round series since 2007. The series was formerly known as the LRS Challenge Series but is now called the Odyssey 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 focused on Grass Roots competitors.
We run the 2 day Valhalla winch 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 2022, we are taking over the nightmare challenge from midland off-road club which is a night-time event. This winch challenge is run in depths of weekly woods during the sunset to add an extra level of difficulty.
As a complete contrast, we run 3 experience day events, which are similar to challenge events but are far more relaxed and fun focused. 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.
