September 15/16th, 2018
This is a 1 vehicle
per team event.
Pyrenees after Dark is a challenging
alternative to multi-day navigational events.
The concept of navigating your own route to waypoints, following
stick maps and directions applies.
The event starts at 9am and concludes
14-15 hours later.
Presentation will be Sunday morning,
so you can still be home early on Sunday.
There will be a mix of navigational
courses to do throughout the event: stick maps of various kinds,
route maps, questions, and an array of others to test your navigational
skills. Modern technology assists but "old school" know
how will come into play.
The event is focused on all the groups of four
wheelers.... so if your vehicle has reasonable ground clearance,
low range and is road registered, then you can enter.
The Main Route is based around easy to medium
grade four wheel driving. Recovery equipment is compulsory E.g.
Snatch strap, tree trunk protector, shackles ... you know the
drill. You must be able to recover yourself, if the event arises.
There is NO limit to the amount
of people you can bring along... as long as it is within the legal
number you can carry in your vehicle. Winches, are not compulsory
but helpful in the event you attempt the optional courses in wet
The navigation is rated easy to challenging;
the four wheel drive standard will be easy to medium with possible
challenging Options if wet. We advise you to use Mud Terrains
for this event, as rain can make it very slippery. You should
also be confident in your driving and recovery abilities. This
area in the dry is relatively easy-medium, should the weather
turn sour the tracks can be extreme.
will be 3 stages for the event. Stage 3 will commence after a
compulsory 90 minute break. Town of Avoca is 10 minutes away from
Base Camp and fuel is available until 6 pm. Café's and
takeaways also available for those not wanting to be self-sufficient.
Make sure you have enough food and water for the event. The event
