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.
