The event is now in the final stages of marketing. The rules are being distributed to the cars that register and the types of cars that can compete are:-
One class.
Extreme Mod and Winch Trucks
2nd Class
Buggy and Truggy

The classes will run different tracks with the only common track being the short speed track that will be driven easily by all, as this track was put in with my 2inch lifted lux on 33inch AT's. It was locked front and back.

Due to the file size the rules haven't been posted on the forums but you can get a copy of them if you register for the event at the scenic rim advendure park website.

This event is nothing like KOH and is bush/rainforest tracks with creek runs and some mountain climbs.
The track map will be finalised by next week and the machines start work on Friday.

No one has seen the final tracks and a number of members of the Logan City 4wd Club will be the track Marshals with Brett Long the head recovery Marshal. They will be inspecting the tracks next week. The winter social drive next week will drive some of the tracks for the first time.

Thought this was going to be happening next year ?
Not a lot of notice. I'd only heard of rumors on outers until I stumbled on this thread
Gives me 12 months till the next one to come up with a competitive truck though

The event went well. There is a lot of improvement needed for the November King of the Rim but the track quality was hard and it did sort out the cars. The Snake Racing Team won the buggy/truggy class and their prototype vehicle is no longer that it is a proven vehicle that can handle the toughest climbs and has the speed to fly. Team Diesel won the extreme/winch class.
We had some issue like any first comp but have learnt a lot. A big thanks to all the drivers who started the event. Thanks to Extreme 4WD Magazine for covring the event.

King of the Rim 26 & 27 November 2010 $6500 cash prize pool

$6500 Prize Pool King of the Rim Featuring The OFFROAD BOSS Arena.
The King of the Rim will be run again with all new tracks. We have listened to the advice of those competitors and will have an event with just as much competitor driving as the first time. There will be a pit lane and sections of the park will be open for social driving.

Offroad Boss will be transforming the best creek run Cals Creek and Crampy's Climb. There will be a spectator track built with specialist viewing platforms. Recovery lane for excavator. 240v lighting along the whole track.

The Offroad Boss arena will also be opening the lower section of Cal's creek (meeting the lower creek) that has not been viewed by anyone. This section will form part of the long track.

This event will be spectator friendly with 80% of the tracks in view for the spectators.

The Competitor rules will have minor changes.

All Competitors must register online at the scenic rim adventure website.

Sounds good, should make the next one. Unfortunately I had other commitments on the first event.
Probably end up working for one of the teams but the extra spectator viewing should make Cals & Crampy's excellent viewing.

Hi guys, just wondering if Scenic Rim is worth a visit? We are headed up that way at the end of October and Chris is thinking of checking it out while we are there. He is more interested in Scenic Rim than Landcruiser Park. So, the opinion of you who have been to both would be great. Thanks.
No Chris, you've spent enough already. :cry:

LCMP is still the bench mark in 4wd recreational parks & most probably always will be just based on the extensive variety of tracks & facilities available. You can select a quiet corner with great flat grassed area & just kick back & then you have some of the most extreme tracks available.

Scenic is only just coming out of the ground trying to utilise the narrow corridor that is available. I do however believe that this park has some of the most serious extreme tracks being explored & made every month. The creek rock runs that are being found are without a doubt the most exciting & difficult in Australia. The only downside is facilities that are available & probably not suited to the tourer style camping. I would class it as more of an enthusiast park that wants to test their abilities & vehicle more so than just wanting to get away & set-up camp & enjoy the outdoors. I do however need to emphasize that Scenic is only in it's infancy & only with age will it show it's true potential.

Thanks brooksy. The mention of extreme will have Chris racing to get there. He loves a challenge. We would only be doing a day visit anyway, too many time constraints.
No Chris, you've spent enough already. :cry:
