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.

We now accept the below helmets

Annual Viking AGM

2022-11-03T11:54:08+00:00
Its that time of year again. ALL committee positions become vacant at the AGM and anyone can stand for any committee position.
It is also where we make the big decisions on what’s going to happen in 2023.
The agenda hasn’t been finalised yet, but we have been asked if we can consider the helmet rule, so we’ll be discussing this.
We’ve also been discussing whether the 6 event one day challenge series has run its course. It may be time to think about scrapping what we do now and run some 2-day events instead. You’ll need to be there if you want to have a say in what the club decides.
The AGM will be at the Greyhound Coaching Inn in Lutterworth on November 12th. Every Viking member has a vote on what your clubs decides to do.
If you have something you wish to be discussed, please bring it to the attention of one of the committee members.

Event starts Sunday 30th of October 8:30 in the morning.
First part is scrutineering, marshal will be looking for properly mounted car battery, general condition of car and heavy lose items inside of the car.

Driving will finish 16:00, results should be announced around 17:00
— Very important:
Motorsport can be DANGEROUS, accidents can happen, Health & Safety is paramount and that it is everyone’s responsibility to keep risk to a minimum. Help each other, look after each other. In the event of a major incident, please do what you can to help. If you think any punch, situation, obstacle is too difficult or dangerous – leave it. There are plenty of other punches/sections out there.
For legal reasons event is only for Viking4x4 Club members.

Brilliant day at Odyssey Round 5 at Wormhough Farm, Leek today. Massive thanks to Steve King and the set-up crew. To Tomasz at the helm and to our host Ken Fallows for giving us such a great welcome.

The podium teams in all 3 classes aced it & thoroughly earned their trophies with some incredibly close scores between them. Many of the teams that didn’t quite make it today would likely have been winners at some other events. You all put on a great display of challenge action.
