THE GREAT Race might be on at Bathurst this weekend, but we ran our own version, 4x4 style.
Sitting around the campfire in the outback, with a convoy of the latest 4x4 utes close at hand, the conversation soon turned to which of them is the quickest ute.
There’s only one way to settle such an argument, so once all the campfire scuttlebutt had settled, we found a nearby claypan and set the record straight.
Ford Ranger Raptor v Holden Colorado v Nissan Navara v Mercedes Benz X350d v VW Amarok 580, Toyota Hilux Rugged X v Mazda BT-50.
800 metres from a standing start on dirt. It might be a straight-line drag race, but it’s still more entertaining than the SuperUtes running around The Mountain.
Stay tuned to 4X4 Australia to see which 4x4 ute emerges as King of the Claypan.
