The event we are hosting is a second for New Zealand in this format. We are basing our events on the same format that has been very successful in the States, and continues to draw large crowds and entrants to each event, with many vehicle owners modifying their vehicles just for this type of off-road meeting. It is not only high performance vehicles that Mudfest attracts, the Kiwi bloke will have a go in the family wagon and that’s good.
Organised chaos does sum it up quite well.
- We have five acres of flat paddock, a very wet swampy paddock.
- We have had great interest from the local 4WD clubs.
Add these two together and you get mud, lots and lots of mud.
Vehicles will be let loose with a maximum of 10 vehicles in the paddock at one time. It is not a competition, it is a free for all and it works so well overseas that we just have to do the same here. Mudfest will be organised, but our entrants won’t be overly organised by officials on the day and this will achieve a relaxed fun-filled day, with no pressure to have to be at the right place at the right time. Have lunch when you want and go and have a play when you’re ready.
The idea is not to get stuck but there is a very fine line and everyone is going to cross it no matter what their horsepower is and this is where the challenge is. If you would like to see what they do at Mudfest search Facebook for Mudfest NZ to see last events photos and updates.
First rule of off-roading: “He who is silly enough to drive in there hooks his own tow rope on”.
