Saying that the 2014 Croatia Trophy was one of the hardest ever is saying a lot about one of the toughest off road challenges in the World. Challenger 4x4's Paul Bass and Andy Pearce survived the nine days of racing to take top place between the UK teams for the second year running.
The Croatia Trophy is one of the best and hardest off road challenges in the World and for that a must do event for team Challenger 4x4 every year. Not only it is great fun it's also a perfect test for our products and our work back at the garage. And what a better testimony than to finish, for the second year running, as the top UK team in the Trophy Class, the class for cars with higher level of preparation, and having the Challenger 4x4 backed team of Richard Edgington and David Robbins finishing as the top UK team in the Adventure Class.
We spent the rest of the competitions battling the elements, the forest, the mud, the water, the electrical and mechanical issues caused by day one's dip. Couldn't go beyond position 15, still in the top half of the final ranking and top UK team though so we can't be too disappointed.
