TOTAL Trailblazers 4×4 3rd Annual All Terrain Challenge

The day began with a 7am call time at the Caroni Bird Sanctuary. 4×4’s and SUV’s of every imaginable shape and size were gearing up for a taste of the TOTAL Trailblazers 4×4 3rd Annual All Terrain Challenge event. Once again our TriniTuner Media Crew was treated to the use of a Polaris off-road, roll caged, tractor-tyred dune buggy with racing seats and a cooler strapped to the back thanks to TOTAL Lubricants and Meguiar’s Car Care Products to ensure we got the best vantage points along the way!

The 3rd annual Total Trailblazers All Terrain SUV & 4×4 Run will be held on Sunday 23rd September (the day before the holiday) from 7:00 AM starting and ending at the Caroni Bird Sanctuary. Competitors will be sent from the Caroni Bird Sanctuary on a navigational off-road run throughout central Trinidad where they will be required to collect some “Treasures” along the way. Anyone who has competed in this event before can attest that these “Treasures” tend to be very whimsical and lend an interesting twist to the event. The navigational section takes competitors to Indian Trail where they will compete in the first of the Special Stages for the day.

Side B held an open-invitational obstacle course event where competitors were classed into two groups: Novice (i.e. stock vehicles) and Professional (i.e. Modified for heavy off-road). The planning and prep for this event took a few months, with several ideas and contributions from the group, finally solidifying into a grand event: A specially-built off-road course, hosted in a limestone quarry in Williamsville, Tabaquite. The quarry owners – Dookeran’s Quarry, were only too happy to oblige and host such an event.
