have a 4x4 - Can I enter? ... YES! YES! YES!
WHAT DO I NEED
If you are the
owner of a 4x4 and wish to adventure into the avenues of competition
/ test your 4x4 skills / learn the art of 4x4-ing in a safe
controlled environment... or just have loads of fun with your whole
family in a 4x4, THIS IS IT! Your vehicle does not need serious
modifications to compete. Although daunting in places, the mountain
route is accessible for any 4x4 - mostly the vehicles are way more
capable than the drivers... but do not fear! Skilled
Marshalls are strategically placed at obstacles to "help"
you conquer our mountain. A little patience is required when you participate in
this route as there are many (up to 180) vehicles making their way
through the mountain. Some guys go through with little effort but
others may take a while to succeed...
Jamboree is promoted to be a family event, "just guys" or
"just girls" teams are welcome!
Motor Sport is
dangerous - Safety is of the utmost concern and a few rules apply:
Your 4x4 must be roadworthy
and the 4x4 adaptations must be fully functional. Your vehicle will
when you enter and must show a clean "bill of health"
before you may proceed. Parts of the route includes normal public
roads and the driver and co-driver will therefore need a valid SA driving license and must adhere to general traffic
rules and regulations. There are equipment checks on the route and
you will be required to have basic 4x4 recovery equipment on
your vehicle. In the event of injury you will also be required to
have a basic medical kit on board. As the route can take up
to 6 hours to complete you will also be required to take along
enough drinking water and food snacks - there may be a
hamburger stand along the route but rather cater for the hungry
little ones. ABSOLUTELY NO ALCOHOL IS ALLOWED ON THE VEHICLE!
Not even for your passengers. There will be check points on the
route and you will be disqualified and escorted back to camp in the
event of any alcoholic beverages found in the vehicle.
The evening before
you set off a drivers briefing will be held - attendance is
compulsory as this gives you valuable insight into the next day.
The Gymkana is made
up with a series of obstacles that you will have to conquour with
your 4x4. This is probably the one chance you will get to really
show off your 4x4-ing skills. Once again, your family / passengers
gets the chance to participate as many of the obstacles requires
their guidance / athleticism / skill / endurance / ... don't worry,
all this is great fun!!! ...
Please note that
although this is not promoted to be an extreme 4x4 event, winning
does not come easy... Your skills and family participation will be
the key to winning the lucrative
prize and trophy that you will be VERY proud of.
