The 4 X 4 Challenge has drawn a lot of interest from the petrol heads, adventure and outdoor lovers in Kenya. Over time, the event has been held in different locations from Kipeto to Lukenya where the roads / tracks are un-surfaced, with mud, gravel, rocks or even riverbeds or water filled pools. This time round it was hosted in Champagne park, Kipeto area and for sure a lot of Kenyan motoring enthusiasts came for the event.

The event usually is held over a weekend with activities from qualifiers to the finals per category. All vehicles are scrutinized and given pass to take part. Despite all that, some get to stall, get stuck but through it all each finds its own strength. Different passions are seen through the teams and their vehicles

A relaxed time out to smell outdoors and see nature, see the new upgrades of 4 X 4, meet friends and rally lovers and have a great time with family as well, a getaway plan.
