    Team make-up – FOUR cars total.

     1 driver authorized to run trips for your club (eg Oasis Offroad’s case a marshal/assistant marshal)

     1 driver at intermediate level (level 2 Oasis Offroad) 1 driver at advanced level (level 3 Oasis Offroad) 1 extra car at any of the above levels

     No more than two cars per team being driven by authorized trip leaders.

     One car must be long wheel based

     We highly recommend having at least one winch per team.

    Team registration

     You will find the entry form online at

     Once submitted and checked we will email you bank account details for payment.

     You will have 48 hours from receipt of this email to secure your booking by making payment. Charge for the event

     The registration fee for each person (drivers and passengers too) is 250

     This will cover a catered meal on Thursday evening, “buried treasure”, event cap and certificate. Substitutions

     If a team loses one car/participant before the event, it is all right to substitute another – providing the team still complies with the team make-up criteria.

     Substituted members will receive their certificates online

     If you have a last minute dropout it will be possible to run your team with three cars; you will be able to enter the photo competitions and quiz but your short line distance will be listed under “non standard teams”


    Vehicle Rules

     All vehicles should be in good condition with a spare tyre also in good condition

     All convoys must have four cars when they leave the campsite. Teams must finish with a minimum three cars.  Keep your centre of gravity low by minimising any weight on your roof! Jerry cans not advised and absolutely no rooftents!

     If your car breaks down in the desert, we will do everything we can to assist in repairing or helping your team to remove it from the desert but ultimately it is the responsibility of the driver to pay for a specialist firm to recover his/her vehicle if it is not possible to drive it out.

     No more than two persons per car. This trip is not suitable for children under the age of 12.

     Recommended minimum 6 persons per convoy (this means at least two cars have to carry a passenger who is willing and able to dig if necessary!)– Thus ensuring there is adequate assistance within each convoy when stuck.

     There will be a 5km penalty for every time a team strays beyond 2.5kms off the straight line - this is to keep all teams in a five kilometres wide “corridor” should we need to search for someone.

     There will be a 5km penalty for any vehicle sustaining damage which requires a police report – team leaders should consider the capabilities of the cars in their convoy and choose a suitable route for them all.

     Teams who do not make it to the campspot should make camp in the desert overnight – no driving after sunset. Driving after sunset will incur a penalty of 20kms, unless being escorted by the sweep team.  Car insurance – your regular car insurance may not cover damage sustained offroad, and it is up to the car owner/driver to clarify this with their insurance certificate or company
