Winch Challenge Events Calendar 2021

CLIFFHANGER 4WD EVENT

April 11th to 16th 2021

Coming up in the 2021 Cliffhanger we will see...

  • All stages will be started and finished using Rallysafe = no start lines, or 54321 or finish boxes, better use of marshals and no human error.
  • A stage book handed out at the start of the event with all your stage notes for the week
  • 7 Marshal leaders and they each only have 3 stages to worry about for the week and 2 days apart so they have plenty of time to prepare
  • Less GPS - the rallysafe file needs to be smaller so we can fit all the stage starts and finishes on it so that means not as many waypoints. Oh well I guess we had better do more winching in that case. We have 3 rock faces very close to camp we will use for a night stage. 
  • We are sticking with Super Tourers but that class will be all about buying a budget vehicle (say $1000) and spending very little on it to race.
  • In 2019 there was 800 klm of racing - So in 2021 we will increase that to 1,000 klm of racing.
