THE Eastern Cape 4x4 Challenge Club will host its first event of the season at the upgraded track next to the Uitenhage Airfield on Saturday.

Drivers from across the country will participate in the various classes.

Local competitors Karel Spangenberg and Antonie Swart, who are competing in the 2017 National Series’ Top Truck Class will be up against stiff competition from Johannesburg.

“At first we had Chaos, but Total Chaos is a new concept 4x4 truck and it was built to conquer chaos. It goes anywhere with the greatest of ease and its power is unbelievable,” said Karel Spangenberg from Eastern Cape 4x4 Challenge Club.

He equipped Total Chaos with an immensely powerful Lexus 4.3 V8 engine. Its suspension operates totally individually, which offers breathtaking manoeuvrability.

The 4x4 event forms part of the Wings and Wheels festival programme. Drivers will have to complete 10 extreme obstacles at the 4x4 track. Another first at the festival and in the Eastern Cape will be an additional five obstacles which will be tackled in the dark.

The 4x4 Extreme event starts Saturday at 09:00 and will run all day with a 4x4 Night Challenge from 18:00 to 22:00.

The entrance fee is R70 for adults, and R20 for children under 12. For more information, contact Antonie Swart at 083 240 5579.
