This week we ran the Top Gear Off Road Challenge which tested the Off Road Class on value, style, performance and racing. It was great to have a good turn out and to see AJ coming along too. With nothing being banned for this challenge we had a nice mix of vehicles to be tested and raced to find the top dog in the Off Road class.
The Vehicles and drivers
|Catman||Vapid Trophy Truck|
|Trashy||Nagasaki Street Blazer|
|Fury||Vapid Sandking XL|
|Stappen||Karin Rusty Rebel|
|Myth||Vapid Desert Raid|
Before the night started the vehicles got awarded Spec points base on value, number of wheels and capacity. This left the Rusty Rebel in the lead with 997 points and the BF Injection and Sandking XL in second and third spot.
Once we met up in free roam we had a quick vote for the best looking vehicle on the night. Dave’s Herbie styling picked up top style points for the BF Injection before we moved on to the Performance Challenges.
We kicked off with the Top Gear Test Track in our own vehicles. DubG picked up the win on his Sanchez with the fastest lap of 00:50.187. On to the drag racing next, the Trophy Truck got the win followed by the Kamacho then the Desert Raid.
The Top Speed Test saw the Sanchez wheelie its way to the win with the Kamacho in second and the Brawler third. After the top speed we tested braking distance with the Street Blazer having the shortest stopping distance, the Sanchez was next followed by the Sandking XL.
The water crossing next, the Trophy Truck, Sandking, Kamacho, Raid and Riata all picked up maximum points with the Sanchez and Blazer suffering the most in this test.
With the Performance Challenges complete we have the BF Injection in the lead with 1,624pts. As ever Catman’s Trophy Truck is placed well at this point with 1,440pts thanks to good Spec points, Style win, Drag Race win… will it be his night?
On to the racing…
For the races we swapped vehicles at the start of every race, this was to help ensure the best vehicle got the points as opposed to the best driver. Due to a few issues with playlists and jobs (Chubb at his finest) we only ran 6 races.
