This video of trophy trucks, buggies and tin tops competing at off road racing events around Australia was made by Flat Out Off Road Racing Team. Visit their website or Facebook page for more info.

“Off road cars are some of the most impressively engineered in Australian motorsport, and most incorporate complex, long travel suspension systems and powerful engines to enable them to negotiate the rugged, dusty and sometimes muddy terrain they encounter as fast as possible.

There are a number of different classes of competition with vehicles, ranging from purpose-built buggies with engines up to 6,000cc to modified 4WD vehicles. Except for the single seaters, all vehicles consist of a driver/navigator team. The endurance aspect of the racing makes each course a test of driver skill and mechanical preparation. Each of these forms a championship in its own right.” – Confederation of Australian Motorsport (CAMS)
