Defender owners, roll up your sleeves as the highly-popular original Defender Trophy is set to make a comeback – an event that all Defender owners aspire to compete in at least once. After persistent nagging from original participants, Johan Kriek, the father of the original Defender Trophy, has decided to relaunch this event, but make it more original concept and not so much a competition. The event will take place in the Limpopo Province from 29 September to 02 October 2016, and focus on the cultures of both the Pedi and Tsonga tribes as well as the local fauna and flora. “The route will be challenging in places,” said Kriek, “but anybody with a standard Defender will be able to do it without damaging their vehicle.” For a booking form, visit or contact Johan Kriek on +27(0)83 305 8083
