A huge leap forward for Cross Country Racing and the 2014 Outback Challenge is GPS Tracking. We are in the process of finalising a deal that will allow event management to track every vehicle live. But the best bit is that this is not limited to event management, it will also be streamed live to the website for public viewing. This system also includes emergency features so any competitor can put out a distress call at any time, Competitors will also know when they are in proximity of another vehicle. It can potentially even time all of the stages and alert you when you have reached your waypoints and log your results. The implementation needs to be finalised but it will be an exciting new addition to our sport.
Cape York beware 4 girls, 4 trucks in 4 weeks plan to be there! No men!
Four girls are planning a grueling trip to Cape York Peninsular from Brisbane to raise awareness and funds to ‘save the bush’. This epic adventure will be a major fundraiser stopping at different towns to raise monies and awareness for John Rooth’s ‘Unlock Australia’ campaign. This journey will begin May 2014 after major fundraising to get the Aussie girls on their way. The four girls may face many perils on the way from mechanical problems, blocked access and being girls! This is a great opportunity for media to get behind this great campaign and support this adventure. 4WD enthusiasts will welcome this journey especially if it stops 4WD tracks from being locked up. This is our Australia, our bush and our passion! Four girls are going to show just how much the bush can be saved! The Co-coordinator Jessica Griffin will be taking photographs and hopes that media may come on board and film this epic adventure to show not only the aspects of the Australian bush but to also promote this worthy cause which could be made into a television documentary. . At the moment they are desperately in need of major sponsors to make this worthwhile cause a reality! Get behind four girls and Roothy’s ‘Unlock Australia,’ by donations or sponsorships.
