Qualifying Naming Rights Sponsor: OPW

Off Road Performance Warehouse - Qualifying Naming Rights Sponsor

We welcome Offroad Performance Warehouse (OPW) in Sydney as Naming Rights Sponsor for Qualifying Day at the 2015 Tough Dog King of the Hunter. Qualifying takes place all day Friday and will be a huge day with lots of action all day long as cars are let off in intervals to explore the course under race conditions to determine the race starting order for the feature races the following days. As this is a new course (at a new event), the qualifying session will also be used to finalise the course design and number of laps. We want a tough track, but we don’t want to make it impossible – the aim is to have exciting 4×4 racing action for the full length of scheduled race times – no one wants a course full of broken vehicles half way through lap one.

OPW has worked closely with Tuff Events over the years and has been a long time stage sponsor of the OPW Travel Ramp at the annual Tough Dog Tuff Truck Challenge. OPW will also be on the course with the Team OPW ULTRA 10.4 driven by company owner Pete Antunac. This impressive vehicle took 12 months to build and debuted earlier this year at the famed King of the Hammers in America. Peter has entered the 10.4 in a few local events and stunned everyone at the sheer speed & capabilities of this IFS + IRS, front & rear steer beast – but unfortunately has yet to finish a race due to minor teething issues. He’s hoping for a clean sweep at the Tough Dog King of Hunter and aims to have crack at the ULTRA4 class Kingpin Bonus.

The Offroad Performance Warehouse is a natural fit for ULTRA4 Racing Australia, apart from having their own ULTRA4, they are importers of many high-performance competition grade offroad 4×4 parts – Interco Tyres, PRP Seats, Fox Shox, Advance Adapters Transfer Cases, PSC – Performance Steering Components, and even the tools from JD Squared to bend and notch rollcages. All serious offroad competitors buy from OPW – visit online (opw.com.au) or phone 1300 679 494.

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!
