Tuff Trucks 2018
13th, 14th, 15th April
The Tough Dog Tuff Truck Challenge (TTC) is a three day, hard as they come, 4WD competition event. The TTC is gruelling and enduring, and provides a real test for competing teams as they push themselves and their vehicles to the absolute limit. Boulders, Rock, Mud, Giant Tyres, Deep Deep Holes and Ruts make up the terrain that competitors must conquer… in hope of taking out the annual perpetual Tuff Truck trophy.
Each competing team consists of two people and their vehicle. The three-day event has twelve stages, which consists of one static, ten driving sections and the addition of Verification as a stage, which goes towards each competing team’s points tally.
With the introduction of Verification, teams are checked against tally sheets of compliance in accordance to vehicle rules and regulations such as safety, recovery items, etc. The second static stage is “Show n’ Shine/Engineering”. The Show n’ Shine aspect relates to finer detail of the vehicle’s aesthetic appearance including cleanliness and tidiness. The Engineering aspect involves judging of a vehicle’s engineering features and attributes. Though by the end of the weekend, Show n’ Shine is pretty much forgotten as many of the trucks are not looking to tidy or clean.
