Chris & his Allied sponsored Hilux hit the dirt for the FNQ OFFROAD CHALLENGE. A few issues prevented the Hilux from reaching the pointy end of the field although they did snatch a few stage wins. See chris's report from the event below.
We had a fairly hectic time over the weekend. However stressful it was it was always enjoyable when behind the wheel. Had a stage win and some good times. Found the limit of the suspension set up(changes soon).
Had a few "fuel system" issues on the gps stage and had a dnf. Put the tailshaft through the transmission pan on Fridays stages. Thanks to Tyson Pascoe for getting burnt while fixing it. I think we bent the front diff on the high speed night stage when we did a bit of a pirouette on the front wheel. Love my new Red winch set up. Thanks for all the other competitors for coming, like a big family now. My wife Kylie Wieden has done an awesome job bringing the event together.
Many thanks to my sponsors
