Land Rover G4 Challenge goes to Mongolia in 2009

The Finals of Land Rover’s ultimate global adventure, the Land Rover G4 Challenge, will take place during 2009 in the most sparsely populated independent country on the planet – Mongolia.

A blend of terrain offering arid steppes, mountains and the extreme climate of one of the world’s largest deserts, the Gobi, makes Mongolia a natural fit with Land Rover’s G4 Challenge.

The Challenge programme kicked off in September 2007 when the competition was announced at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Since then the recce teams have been exploring the toughest terrain in Asia to find a suitably demanding environment to stage the culmination of the competition in 2009.

The recce team has been working hard to find routes that will push the vehicles and the competitors to their limits.

Mongolia is a spectacular country which will enable Land Rover to create a truly extraordinary Finals event in 2009. There are also investigations into the possibility of extending the Challenge into another area offering different extremes.

The 18 national teams (each comprising of one man and one woman) will be pushed to their limits in a thrilling competition involving off-road driving, and sports such as kayaking, mountain biking and climbing.

The Australian National Selections will take place in October to decide the two men and two women who will get an all expenses paid trip to the UK for the International Selections, and ultimately the Final in Mongolia.

Anyone can sign up for the Challenge, just visit www.landroverG4Challenge.com or call 1800 789 786, for the chance to represent Australia against 17 other countries in the three-week long Challenge Finals.
