Nissan Navara wins Rainforest Challenge Malaysia

AFTER an incredible 10-day odyssey that pushed both man and machine to the limits, the Rainforest Challenge Malaysia (RFC) 2016 held in Pahang has finished with another great success with the Nissan Navara clinching the “Best Product Pickup Category” title.



Three participating Navaras from Edaran Tan Chong Motor Sdn Bhd (ETCM) took part in the event. Two were used as official cars to support the overall RFC operational and transportation management while the third unit was used in the race by two Brazilian “Ladies of Steel” – Fabiana Martins (driver) and Julieth Zanelato (navigator/co-driver) who faced the similar gruelling Special Stages (SS) as their male counterparts.

Their Navara was kept as standard as possible with only the required contest equipment fitted on for contest, such as bull bars, halogen spot lights, winch, protection bars, recovery kit, extreme tires, suspension and snorkel.

Rated among the Top Ten Toughest Motor Races in the World says a lot about the capabilities of the Nissan Navara when ETCM took “the bulls by the horns” and threw in three units of the new Nissan Navara. Geared up with some basic off-road 4x4 accessories to take on the challenges of RFC 2016, the Nissan Navara had been tested and proven under real conditions of the extreme 4x4 race, which ended on Dec 6 in Cameron Highlands.

This year’s race was flagged off from Dataran Merdeka, Kuala Lumpur, where RFC was first launched 19 years ago. The full action took place on Nov 27 in Kuantan at the Bukit Galing Camp of Brigade Tenggara HQ (General Operations Force of the Royal Malaysian Police)



Participants from 30 countries then battled it out through Malaysia’s harshest terrains passing through Gambang, Raub, Kuala Lipis and finally ending its course at Tanah Rata (Cameron Highlands).

Yeah it may have been longer, but I bet there was no risk of being blown up by a lost HEAT round!
But seriously, I would love to do this. I always wanted to do the Camel Trophy. But then the luvvies got involved and ruined it.

There are 10 types of people in this world.... Those that understand Binary, and those that don't.

Navara-net bear hunt challenge.
Could be set up in local rounds with a final somewhere.

Been thinking about a landrover course that I once attended near to plymouth. Next time I am working down there I am going to investigate. Could be a scene for a weekend play.
