It’s that time again! Hot 4×4 action awaits participants and spectators at this year’s popular SEA of SAND 4×4 Challenge. Again, we’ll host the 2017 edition at the Melkbos 4×4 Track in the Western Cape on 15 October 2017.


Big scores of like-minded 4×4 enthusiasts are expected to attend this family-friendly event. The SEA of SAND 4×4 Challenge is a fun off-road competition that involves the entire family. Take the kids and missus along in the backseat (as long as there are seat belts).


Over a series of challenging obstacles, man will be pitted against machine, but with no damages to your car (we can’t make any promises for your ego though!) You’ll need some skill: Whether it’s target shooting, pinpointing empty bottles on poles or throwing wooden blocks into nets, most of the challenges will be done from the front seat of your 4×4.


Land Rover vehicles get preference and there are limited entries available (restricted to 50). All vehicles must be roadworthy and licensed. There’s a magnificent Floating Trophy up for grabs (sponsored by the Cape Land Rover Club). As usual, prizes promised are to tbe the biggest yet.



Melkbos 4×4 Track is situated on the farm Ogieskraal just outside Melkbosstrand in the Western Cape, offering everything outdoors from 4×4 tracks, parties, corporate and year-end functions. If you have your own 4×4 come and join the fun or try something new by riding a Quad Bike where you would take your 4×4 vehicle. Melkbos 4×4 Track also offers one-hour guided quad bike tours. You can book one of t Lapas for your own functions.





Please note no drinking and driving. You’re welcome to bring that coolbox and umbrella with refreshments and consume it once the driving is done. Refreshments will be sold at the Melkbos 4×4 Track. Please note that we advocate responsible drinking, and we would love everyone who compete or spectate to enjoy the day and get home safely. Please take the time to read our events’ rules and regulation and to sign our indemnity form. There will be indemnity forms made available at the event too. For the kids, there’ll also be a jumping castle. We ask that children under the age of 16 are accompanied by an adult when entering the 4×4 circuit – for their own safety. Quad rentals are available. Contact Hendrik @ 083 4891204. Melkbos 4×4 Track will be selling hamburgers, hot dogs and boerewors rolls and plenty of soft drinks. However, there are NO card facilities available, so bring enough cash along. Braai facilities are available. Bring your own wood and braai equipment.
