Dear All,

Here’s another industry leading first from the Crew at Cliffhanger 4WD Events. Hobzee and myself are going to go “on tour” around the country to discuss the Cliffhanger 4wd Event in depth, in person to all of you ... and you will be pleased to learn our supporting act is Steve Schafer from CCDA. (SEE TOUR DATES AND VENUES BELOW)

We have spent the last few months making preparations and finalising our sponsors (we have matched previous years) and now we are on an information drive for competitors and spectators. We are really pleased with our progress to date and the level of support and commitment we have received from the Cobar community, our valued sponsors and competitors who have entered.

Breaking news – Tigerz11 have agreed to become naming rights sponsor. Even if you are running your Hybrid Hi Mount in the event, Tigerz11 have great prices on rope, offset fairleads and controllers to suit comp rig standards, not to mention a huge range of great winches and accessories for the spectators and support crews. One thing we just learned is that Paul at Tigerz11 is working on perfecting the twin motor low mount with a motor at each end – and he is really close to nailing it for general public production. As serious off roaders you have to admire him for that kind of initiative.

We have a lot of exciting new aspects to the event to discuss with competitors and spectators .... this will be like your first Briefing for the event.
  • Catering options
  • Changes to base camp
  • Spectating
  • Repairs on site
  • Marquees in Pit Lane,
  • Production Class
  • Polaris Class – now with recognised specs in CCDA
  • Our comprehensive new supplementary regs
  • Our sponsors for 2011
  • The new stages and stage concepts
  • The type of support and facilities you can get in Cobar
  • What to expect if you are new
  • Vehicle preparations – car numbers, scrutineering, etc
  • Lots of questions answered.
And seeing we have Steve from CCDA with us, he will be able to talk about the latest news coming out of the CCDA, clarification on on new and old rules, vehicle and equipment specs, other events, etc. So even if you can’t make it to this year’s Cliffhanger then you might still wish to come to our gig in March to learn about the CCDA and what you might need to do to prepare for other events.

And above all it’s a great way to catch up with fellow competitors for a social.

So we extend this invite to competitors, officials and spectators of Cliffhanger and any other event for that matter.

Please make sure you spread the word around..... EVERYONE IS INVITED.

Need more info on the event in general then go to our website www.navrun.com.au and click on the Cliffhanger link.

We also have you first bumper 22 page newsletter out, with all the in depth details of the event and sponsor information...

meetings

Last night we had our Melb meeting and we were really pleased with the turn out. Some 50-60 turned up and all are attending - either competing, marshaling or spectating.

Everyone learned what we are up to and now understand the new rules and scoring, etc and why we introduced them.

It seems from the keen interest we are now receiving and the rate of entries coming in that we need to set a limit of 40 rigs and that this limit will be reached well before the event.

Paul from Tigerz11 came along and has since very kindly donated 1 x 12,000 Lb winch to the winner of each class. A very big thanks is extended to Paul.

There is also 20,000 cash being handed out at presentation night at the end of the event.

Just to remind you that the classes are ..
Open/Challenge
Production
Polaris
And that unregistered vehicles may enter any of these classes.

Tomorrow night is Geelong.

Next week we are in Adelaide, Brisbane, Rockhampton and Sydney. If I get enough interest from any other areas I am prepared to visit there too but if it's only 1-2 people then I can chat on the phone ... let me know.

Looking forward to seeing you there.
