Mud in your eye..

NZ4WD - - NEWS -

Af­ter reg­u­lar lash­ings of rain in the days lead­ing up to this year’s Mount Shop MudFest, oc­ca­sional show­ers were a mi­nor ir­ri­tant on the al­lot­ted day, Sun­day May 27.

If any­thing the rain that did fall made the mud at the Waikato River-side venue be­hind the Mere­mere dragstrip com­plex even tack­ier, bet­ter for grip but stick­ing to trucks ( in par­tic­u­lar wind­screens) like glue.

With more and bet­ter tracks, not to men­tion trucks and crews, the en­ter­tain­ment quo­tient was through the roof. Trucks were even get­ting stuck – and be­ing suc­cess­fully re­cov­ered! – in the stag­ing area as they waited to be let into the main arena.

We will run a full re­port on the event next month. In the mean­time con­sider this lit­tle se­lec­tion of pic­cies as an ap­pe­tiser for the main course!

Mudfest ac­tion.
