It’s that time again, time for the 2018 Suzuki Ex­treme 4x4 Chal­lenge. The day is Sun­day, the date April 29. The Suzuki Chal­lenge is an an­nual made-for-tele­vi­sion 4x4 Tri­als show­case cre­ated and hosted by lo­cal 4x4 Tri­als guru Dan Cow­per and his busi­ness, Cow­per Trucks, at 2278 SH3 Tu­rak­ina ( near Whanganui, Ed). This year it will again fea­ture the best of the best driv­ers and 4x4 Tri­als com­pe­ti­tion ve­hi­cles in the coun­try. Ve­hi­cles and crews have been per­son­ally in­vited to test their skills against 12 ex­treme 4x4 cour­ses. FMX su­per­star Levi Sher­wood is also locked and loaded as the Suzuki Ex­treme 4x4 Chal­lenge 2017 guest driver. Levi will be one of the 10 com­pet­ing driv­ers and will pedal an LS3 V8-pow­ered Cow­perTruck. Steep hills, ver­ti­cal banks, mas­sive jumps, mud and speed, com­bined with good food, easy spec­ta­tor view­ing and live com­men­tary all makes for a fan­tas­tic day out with mates and fam­ily. Start time is 9.00am and the event will be filmed for TV and screened via 2 x one hour pro­grammes on TV3’s CRC Mo­tor­sport show. See the Suzuki Ex­treme 4x4 Chal­lenge Face­book page for more info.

Run­ners-up last year were the Biggs broth­ers, Scott and Jarred.
