Central Zone Club Truck Challenge
Central Zone Club Truck Challenge Rnd 1

The club has used the site at Wainuioru south-east of Masterton for the last few years and because it rained the week before the event we were praying that we could still use the block.

Fortunately, on the day the weather was great and the club was rewarded with an excellent turnout of competitors, over 30 vehicles with many more drivers who were sharing vehicles. 

Included was our usual cadre of keen Club Truckers who do all of the rounds, plus some National Trials competitors keeping their hand in, as well as local club members and new to our CTC a good number of female competitors.  I mentioned how lovely this was and had a boot jammed down my throat!

With so many vehicles the competitors were split into four groups which enabled us to get through fourteen hazards and then run side by side drag races to finish the day.  Unfortunately it meant that I didn't see half of the field during the day including most of the National Trials competitors, Brent Ward, Mark Smith, Peter Grey, Kevin Galbraith and Ash Senior but they pegged out some pretty tough hazards. 

The ground was so wet that even between just a few competitors a hazard could change completely, especially if the preceding person got stuck and spun holes in the course.
