Top Truck Challenge is considered one of the most unique and challenging off-road competitions in the world. The week-long challenge is held at Hollister Hills SVRA near Hollister, California and is celebrating its 21st year this year. This event is extreme and over the top, designed to not only be the ultimate off-road competition for the drivers but also for the vehicles.
There are several events run over the course of the week including: the Tow Test, Frame Twister, Mud Pit, Obstacle Course, Hill Climb and the spectacular Tank Trap. The 2013 event will see the deletion of the Mini Rubicon event, which will be replaced with the brand new Coal Chute event, utilising a newly developed area of the Hollister Hills SVRA.
There are also some new rules coming into play this year with the requirement that vehicles resemble a mass-produced 4×4, which will eliminate tube buggies from the challenge. Check out this highlights video from last year’s challenge.
