Kundasang 4x4 Challenge - Semi-Hardcore

I managed to shoot some photos during the 2-day event held at Kampung Lembah Permai, Kundasang. The challenge is actually consist of two events which suppose to be held in Kundasang and then convoy  to Serinsim for another challenge. However due to time limitation, the convoy was canceled and the whole challenge in Kundasang instead.

The year of 2010 looks like Kundasang Four Wheel Drive Club (K4WDC) a bit busy organizing few challenges. Started from New Year Novice Challenge (Jan 2010), Youth day 4x4 and 2x2 Challenge (March 2010), Kaamatan Novice Challenge (May), Gondohon 4x4 Challenge (August, 2010), Pesta Kubis 4x4 Challenge (Oct 2010) and the most recent Kundasang Safari 2010 Semi-Hardcore Challenge. Kudos to K4WDC for actively organizing novice and semi-hardcore challenge. This would help participants to gain more skill on 4x4 challenges and at the same time providing opportunity for light modified 4x4 vehicles, unlike those expensive and heavily modified and equipped hardcore vehicles.

The location of the challenge, Kampung Lembah Permai Kundasang.

Semi-hardcore challenge means the vehicle must not using additional help from lockers and winch, just usual 4x4 on their vehicles. However the track has some hardcore part that the drivers need to overcome.

Roll over and recovery are the usual thing during challenge.

Until then, I hope the very best for K4WDC next year and more events will be organized to promote this extreme sport locally.
