Kingpin Bonus

Kingpin Bonus

Make no doubts about it, King of the Hunter is a race! The toughest 4×4 Offroad Race in Australia – to finish this race will be a test of both talent, team stamina and vehicle reliability. While teams are welcome to drive at their own pace, to wear King of the Hunter crown teams in each class will need to put together something special. King of the Hunter is about being prepared to take on both the rough offroad rocks with precision while not being afraid to push the pedal on the long straights to pull away from the pack – and then do this consistently lap after lap for the duration of each race.

Winning one race might be luck, winning another and you’ll earn respect of the teams in the pits and the spectating fans – but if you win all 3 races over the weekend you can consider yourself a Kingpin! From that moment on you’ll become the benchmark. You’ll have a target on your back as teams go home in envious rage ready to come back and make sure it doesn’t happen a second time. Tall poppy syndrome at it’s finest.

Go Hard!

King of the Hunter is a race, a hard race, and we want to encourage teams who go hard! The Kingpin Bonus is a unique prize only won by a single team in each class able to pull of the feat of getting the fastest qualifying run and then follow up with back-to-back wins on Race Day 1 and Race Day 2. The Kingpin Bonus will boost your total winnings with an additional $1,000.00!

Kingpin Winnings

Kingpin Winnings = Qualifying Win + Class Win + Kingpin Bonus


$3,900 = $400 + $2,500 + $1,000


$2,300 = $200 + $1,100 + $1,000


$1,900 = $150 + $750 + $1,000

2015 King of the Hunter Entry open

Entries have opened to racers for the first ULTRA4 Racing Australia event: King of the Hunter in Milbrodale this coming September. With 3 different class categories available we are expecting a wide variety of vehicle types to take on Australia’s Toughest 4×4 Offroad Race.

Bringing ULTRA4 Racing to the Hunter Valley is sure to prove popular with both teams and spectators alike. This easily accessible location is just under 3 hrs north Sydney and just under an hour from Newcastle. The location is well know for offroad events, both racing (Milbrodale Classic) and rock-crawling (Tuff Truck Challenge) of which #KOHunter will feature both. Nice cleared paddocks make weekend camping enjoyable – while the teams camp away near the pits, spectators have a choice of 3 distinct camping grounds to cater to their style and budget; Premium, General & Feral. All public grounds are within walking distance of the dedicated spectator areas.

Using a combination of both offroad racing and rock crawling courses, the course will offer a variety of tricky rock sections, steep climbs, open trails and fast paddock dashes to test out the full capabilities of the vehicles and the skills of the teams behind them. UTVs will run slightly different course from the Tuff Truck/Winch and ULTRA4 classes with lower rock clearances.

King of the Hunter 2015 is aiming for a healthy cash prize pool with over $10,000.00 initially planned. See Prize divisions.
