Teen 5k 'n event, weet ek ook nie of ek so super lus is om in te skryf nie. Dis darem bietjie styf.

En behalwe vir bragging rights, sien ek ook nerens wat die prys is nie.

The entrance fee of R4950 is a bit steep. How about a inter club challenge with a entry of say R200 and the winner is then sponsered with all the entry fees to try and win it. If he does win it we can then share in the loot......
The direct use of force is such a poor solution to any problem, it is generally employed only by small children and large nations.

Good morning fellow Hilux followers, if I may, let me explain a bit about HiluxTrophy by answering some of the posts that was posted. Also just to clarify a few points.
1. Yes it’s only for VIGO, purely to level the playing field as few of the SFA models are still standard. This normally leads to penalty systems for added on extras and in my opinion never really is fair both ways. Also VIGO has been going now for almost 9 years and we feel that there are enough VIGO’s out there that can and will compete. Lastly we all know that a SFA Hilux will probably outdo a VIGO, but this is NOT a competition for heavily modified vehicles, we know that there is already enough brilliant competitions for you guys to proof your mettle.
2.
- Jip, you are correct. Met and spoke to the guys who are organizing this event at EFS and that was said.
o See answer above..
- Vigo's only...
smaak my hul is bang mense sê hul het agteruit geboer... Hehehe.
o Might be true ! Like all things in life even Solid Axles evolve..

- Dit lyk my nie daar is al enigsins n inskrywing nie. Ek wonner hoe lank is die storie al aan die gang...
o Die inskrywings het eers die week oopgemaak, en is nog glad nie ge-adverteer nie. Dit verskyn in die Desember uitgawe van Leisure Wheels. Ook in Beeld, Volksblad en die Burger later in November.

- Teen 5k 'n event, weet ek ook nie of ek so super lus is om in te skryf nie. Dis darem bietjie styf.
o Ongelukkig is dit n besigheid, met baie uitgawes aangesien dit n top klas event gaan wees. As jy met n Amarok wil gaan ry by Sarel op die sand kos dit jou heelwat meer..se maar net. Sien asb onder wat dit alles dek, en dit kos baie geld..Ons doen dit alleen met geen buite finansiele bystand van groot corporate sponsors nie.

En behalwe vir bragging rights, sien ek ook nerens wat die prys is nie.
 Elke inskrywing kry n “goodie bag” met nuttige 4x4 toerusting
 Elke event se eerste 3 gaan deur na die final, met pryse vir die top 3. Verder is daar lucky draw pryse by elke event. Die HiluxTrophy wenner sal wegstap met ten minste R35 000.00 se pryse…en bragging rights!
 Terloops, bitter min mountain biking of trail running events bied huge pryse. Inskrywings gaan so hoog soos R25000.00 en toerusting kos selfs meer as 4x4 kit. Somtyds is dit genoeg om te kan se “ek was daar”..

- Thats just bull S_-T that the older vehicles cant compete...
Whats wrong are they worried that the SFA will win and then they will need to make a NEW SFA HILUX.....
o We can only wish for that new SFA..

- The entrance fee of R4950 is a bit steep. How about a inter club challenge with a entry of say R200 and the winner is then sponsered with all the entry fees to try and win it. If he does win it we can then share in the loot.
o The entry fee gives you the following, and this ALL costs money,
 3 nights tented accommodation with camping fees included for the team
 3 Days trail fees/cost
 Prize giving lunch for the team
 4x4 Goodie bag
 Refreshments on the course
 Medical assistance with Heli Evac if needed
 24 Hr security at the venue to ensure your safety
 FULLY paid entry into the 5 day final if you progress…

- Kan jy nou glo?

Sonder om die poster te sien, klink die naam baie na 'n copy van die Defender Trophy???
o En wat is fout daarmee? Mag net olie lekkende Defenders hulle eie kompetisie he? Genade daar verkoop meer Hilux in n week as Defenders in n jaar..waars die passie! Ja dis waarskynlik geskoei op die idée of konsep, maar glad nie n Camel Trophy wannabee event nie.
Ons streef daarna om die res van die mark te wys hoe om dit te doen, waarvoor Hilux eienaars staan en dat 4x4’s nie net die omgewing verwoes soos baie mense dink nie. Ons wil verantwoordelike, veilige en goed ge-organiseerde events bied. Natuurlik sal ons alles vir almal wil wees maar ongelukkig kan ons nie ! Ons glo en vertrou dat ons die ondersteuning van die Hilux Club sal kry, en dat ons die Defender, Isuzu, Ford en al die ander manne kan wys dat Hilux die beste is!

Hi Riaan en dankie vir die verduideliking.

Ek verstaan jou redes oor dat julle net Vigos aanvaar en ja dit maak die speel veld gelyk. Ek hoog regtig dat julle genoeg inskrywings kry en dat dit n sukses sal wees. :thumbup:

Ek dink die grootste probleem sal moontlik daai inskrywings geld wees. Dit is nie bietjie geld nie en om dit te vergelyk met mountain biking en hulle inskrywing kostes is nie reg nie. 99% van die manne wat Vigos besit gebruik hulle Vigos as n daaglikse voertuig ook. Bitter min gebruik hulle om mee te speel want hulle verkies die ouer 4x4 as speel goed dus nie hul eenigste vervoer nie. Nou verwag julle dat hulle R5k moet op dok vir iets waar hulle moontlik die kans staan om iets te wen maar ook heelwat kaans staan om hulle voertuie ook te beskadig en dan moontlik niks te kry vir hulle effort nie behalwe n goodie bag, 3 nagte kamp en trail fees. Dit is nie vir my baie logies nie.

Dan die geld. Se nou julle kry 10 inskrywing per event (6 in totaal) dit maak dan R49500.00 per event en top 3 kry gratis enty tot die finaal so kom ons se R49500 x 5 = R247500. En dan laaste een is gratis. Correct my as ek verkeerd is asb. Dit klink vir my effens baie. Ek verstaan ook dat julle n besigheid is maar laat ek dit so stel. Bridgestone Fundi kos in die omgewing van R550 inskrywing per event. Selfde prinsiep as julle. Fine, hulle word geborg van pryse ens maardie pryse is bv ELKE event min n R10k stel bande en soort gelyke goed en dan in die finaal is daar n splinter nuwe camp trailer ter waarde and hier by die R80k.

Verskoon as ek negatief klink maar dit is net my mening en probeer glad nie op tone trap nie.

bigger rims are a disadvantage to start off with in offroad conditions, why add penalties? on a 50mm lift you wont get enough sidewall to deflate for added traction on an 18" rim.. On a 15" rim you'll be able to fit nice high sidewall tyres, that's where the penalties should count.. :twisted: :twisted:

I agree, that's where the experience comes in, a nice set of 32" muds on 15" rims :thumbup:


All those rules, just thought a Vigo body will look nice on Luxter :roll:

Would like to enter, anyone with a spare Vigo?

Agreed, but few newbies know this and anything bigger is mos always better! Nothing like a 15" Tyre with lots of air between you and mother earth!

Hi Ali3n,
Jou opinie word waardeer, en jy trap op geen tone nie ! Mens weet mos n forum is n oop platvorm waar goed kan en gaan bespreek word. My pa het altyd gese selfs negatiewe kommentaar is goeie kommentaar..
Nietemin, ons beplan nie om voertuie te beskadig nie. Natuurlik uit die aard van die saak kan enige iets gebeur, maar as jy tog n BMW 5 reeks of Merc E-klas wou het het jy een gehad ? Ek verskil van jou oor die ou wat sy VIGO net skool toe en terug gebruik. Baie mense koop die Hilux omdat hulle tog toegang wil he tot die “lewensstyl” en die klas van dinge wil doen. Ja baie van die Hilux Klub lede is seriously hardcore en het n ou SFA wat klassifiseer as pa se speeding, maar baie ouens het die VIGO met al die speelgoed omdat hy hom wil gebruik..die is sy kans! Sover die moontlike skade gaan, sou jy 4x4 spesifieke versekering he soos CC dek hulle enige skade wat jy mag opdoen terwyl jy deelneem aan so n kompetisie..ek praat uit ondervinding (seker n nuwe blik wurms die..)
Ons poog om met HiluxTrophy baie te fokus op die bestuurder, 4x4 tegnieke en spanwerk tussen bestuurder en navigator. Dit gese gaan jy waarskynlik sukkel met n “showroom” Hilux, en juis gaan ons die roetes VIGO spesifiek beplan en uitle. Ekt al te veel gesien dat n Jimny bloot deurglip waar hindernisse geplaas is !
Sou jy Roof of Africa, Botswana 1000, Cape Epic of enige ander event doen wat baie kos, staan jy ook die kans om niks te kry, behalwe die medalje, fotos of slegs die ervaring nie ! Hier het almal wel n kans om die finaal te haal aangesien die speelveld baie meer gelyk is..en so jou kans om weg te stap met die groot prys.
Wat die pryse betref, Ja Fundi kos minder om te enter..maar dis die BRIDGESTONE inter club challenge..so dis hulle platvorm vir advertensie..eenvoudig. Afgesien van die R10k bande voucher is die res van die pryse nie so WOW nie, n stel ligte hier en recovery gear daar.
Ja die finaal se 1ste prys is o.a. n kamp trailer van R50k wat fantasties is, maar glo my ons poog om dieselfde en meer te bied..LA Sport Megastores is betrokke.
Ek dink dis eenvoudig, soos enige iets in die lewe gaan dit oor keuses. Wat vir jou of my dalk nie werk nie, werk vir baie ander.
Dankie vir die wense van voorspoed, en ek hoop steeds ons sien jou by ons events!
Groete,
Riaan

Riaan, Weet jy wat. Jy het nou mooi verduidelik en wat ek vir jou wil se is baie dankie. :thumbup: Dit gebeur dat as jy jou mening lig oor iets dan vat die mense dit verkeerd op aan die ander kant al was dit nie so bedoel nie so baie dankie dat jy geantwoord het. :thumbup:

Ek sal bitter graag daar wil wees so as Shaun sy lux reg het sal ek maar vir die man kom navi. Hom mooi wys hoe ry n regte 4x4 en nie daai dinky toy Jeep nie en sommer vir sy eintlike navi wyse hoe moet mense regtig navi. :twisted: :twisted:

Dit maak heeltemal sin wat jy se en ek stem 100% saam. Soos ek gese het, ek was nie heeltemal seker oor die geld storie nie en het verstaan jy betaal R5k elke event en dit het vir my bietjie erg hoog geklink maar nou dat jy verduidelik het maak dit sin. Ek moet se ek het ook nie elke bladsy op jou webtuiste gelees nie. As ek jou weer sien sal ek vir jou n "sappie" koop. :thumbup:

Eish tjom! Jy weet wat ek op die laaste kompetisie aangevang het! :mad:

Kom ons praat oor die inskrywings geld en die reëls, dink my trok kan dalk te hoog wees. Dan maak ons 'n plan. Hilux4x4 moet seker verteenwoordig word! :P

Daddy's. Jason came to collect it - it would not start, battery was kaput. Looked quite funny when they hooked up a li'l Datsun 1200 bakkie to pull it in a reverse start, but once the engine fired, those cylinders spoke!

- Kan jy nou glo?

Sonder om die poster te sien, klink die naam baie na 'n copy van die Defender Trophy???
o En wat is fout daarmee? Mag net olie lekkende Defenders hulle eie kompetisie he? Genade daar verkoop meer Hilux in n week as Defenders in n jaar..waars die passie! Ja dis waarskynlik geskoei op die idée of konsep, maar glad nie n Camel Trophy wannabee event nie.
Ons streef daarna om die res van die mark te wys hoe om dit te doen, waarvoor Hilux eienaars staan en dat 4x4’s nie net die omgewing verwoes soos baie mense dink nie. Ons wil verantwoordelike, veilige en goed ge-organiseerde events bied. Natuurlik sal ons alles vir almal wil wees maar ongelukkig kan ons nie ! Ons glo en vertrou dat ons die ondersteuning van die Hilux Club sal kry, en dat ons die Defender, Isuzu, Ford en al die ander manne kan wys dat Hilux die beste is! Kontak my gerus, inbox of op my cellfoon met voorstelle, idees goeie en slegte kommentaar. Besoek http://hiluxtrophy.co.za" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; vir details.
Hallo Riaan,

Om 'n kompetisie vir Hilux'e te he is goed, wat my pla is dat die naam klink soos 'n copy van die Defender Trophy - kan jy dink aan al die komentaar wat daaroor in omloop sal wees?

Dink in terme van: Toyota manne kan nie hul eie naam uit dink nie of Alles LR moet gecopy word.... Just some thoughts.

Jy se dat dit 'n besigheid is - dan gaan jy al die brands moet insluit. Nie alle Hilux eienaars gaan aan so event wil deelneem nie, gooi jou mark wyer oop en jou besigheid het potensieel meer kliente.

Die wat kla oor die inskrywings geld - die laaste Defernder Trophy se inskrywing was R15k! MAAR 'n nuwe Defender 90 was op die spel.
'02 KZ 'Lux. Cooled. Chipped. Onca'd. Cherished!

If you are a diesel fan, raise your hand.
If you aren't raising your hand, raise your standards!

A 4x4 is merely a machine that enables you to get stuck further away from civilization.

Die idee is goed, enige kompetiesie verg baie werk en beplanning, maar n Hilux is n Hilux, hoekom nie enige Hilux laat deelneem nie, jy kan die obstacles so uitle dat dit elkeen bevoordeel. Ons het soortgelyke kompetisies hier in die kaap, daar is geen klasse nie en enige iets van n 4Y tot n V8 het dit al oor die jare gewen.
Ek verstaan die speelveld moet gelyk wees, maar dit moet ook nie oor boere-sport gaan nie, eerder oor die vermoe van n Hilux, watter jaar model ookal.
Dis mos nie n Hilux trophy nie, eerder n "Vigo" trophy.

Good afternoon Hilux aficionados, just quickly the following,
- It took Defender trophy 10 years of running to give a 90 Series away as first prize!
- And yes the entry fees is VERY high
- Spirit of Africa entry fee is R6400.00 per team, and gives a first prize of R50 000.00
- Bridgestone Club challenge gives a final first prize of a trailer worth R50 000.00
- HiluxTrophy WILL have competitive prizes – GAURENTEED!
After much deliberation we have decided to allow older model Hilux vehicles that are still mostly original. If you need more information, inbox me and I’ll explain.
Lastly, to allow for more entries, we also dropped the initial entry fee from R4950.00 per team, to what we believe a way more reasonable R3950.00 per team. :yahoo:
We trust this will entice PLENTY entries from the Hilux Club,
Riaan

Cleaner,
Just thought I will give you the opportunity to kick some SFA butt :lol:
No seriously, I know we can't please everyone, but at least now the older vehicles can enter, albeit with a penalty system :twisted:
And definitely no V8's, shortened vehicles and the likes.
So hopefully a well piloted Vigo will still show the way !
Thanks for the encouragement...much needed today :alvarin:

That's more like it, we've just built another course for an inter club event and you can build it to favor all types of vehicles

I would realy like to compete, but i don't own a std Hilux

If Hoppy can proof that 50% of that Green Monster has original "Toyota Japan" inscriptions..he can Enter! :silent:
Seriously, as I've explained earlier, we have to draw the line somewhere..and the Monster falls on the otherside of that line :crazy:
Sorry Hoppy...Maybe you can bring it along as a recovery vehicle!

Jis Riaan,

With that 50% rule Hoppy will easily be included in the competition!

Basically just the suspension is not factory Toyota;>

Agreed.. That monster is 95% Authentic Japan Toyota.. the other 5% is pure authentic unadulterated Hoppy ingenuity... :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Hoppy wrote:Die idee is goed, enige kompetiesie verg baie werk en beplanning, maar n Hilux is n Hilux, hoekom nie enige Hilux laat deelneem nie, jy kan die obstacles so uitle dat dit elkeen bevoordeel. Ons het soortgelyke kompetisies hier in die kaap, daar is geen klasse nie en enige iets van n 4Y tot n V8 het dit al oor die jare gewen.
Ek verstaan die speelveld moet gelyk wees, maar dit moet ook nie oor boere-sport gaan nie, eerder oor die vermoe van n Hilux, watter jaar model ookal.
Dis mos nie n Hilux trophy nie, eerder n "Vigo" trophy.
Hoppy as hulle die SFA's toelaat is dit nie meer a challenge nie .....lol.... :surrender:
