Each year we’ve been expanding the offering for all visitors to tuff truck, from better viewing mounds, kids activities, more food options, fireworks, more camping areas and last year with the Tuff Telly and TTTV LiveStream, but what we’re all here for is the name of the game: The Tough Dog Tuff Truck Challenge and without the heavily modified trucks and their skilled teams there is no “challenge”. So this year, to continue the tradition of BIGGER and BETTER, we’re opening up the competition to ALL finalised nominations – all 75 of them!
New & Old
This means they will be great mix of teams, new and old: it’s been a almost decade since there has been a consecutive year-after-year back-to-back winner (Team OPW 2005 & 2006). Will Just Customs be able to come back again and keep American Dave Cole off the top of the podium (back again for his 2nd attempt in the Team OPW Tuff Truck). Or will we see an entirely new champion? History shows this is very likely; in the last 7 years there have been 6 different teams engraved on the annual perpetual Tuff Truck trophy.
Again this year there are many new teams down to mix it for the first time on the tracks of Milbrodale. Many teams still in the build process when we saw their nomination photos, like Hillbilly, team defect in a huge wheeled HiLux, Wild Customs, Redzook, Venom Racing in a cut-down V8 Range Rover, All Metal Magic building the first Tuff Truck Jimny, also it’ll be good to have some more crazy Mexicans up from the southern border with their Zombie Unit to protect us all, and 2 with quite “interesting” names Phat Farmers Racing and COCONUT RACING, then there’s blitz 1 and a second car under the “Blitz” marque Blitz 496. Be sure to visit each of their profiles and give them a “Like” to encourage them along to have their rig ready to roll.
Also this year sees many teams trade trucks to see how the other teams do it (for example this years MR Diggit Racing is last year’s 3rd place truck of Barzook, and Rock on racing has the past MR Diggit Motorsport rig). While some teams are rebuilding to take on the event in an entirely new rig based on their past experiences, rules variations, new technology and new budgets (like Josh Hill back again in Scratch the Itch).

Should all 75 teams make it to the starting line on 17 April this will be a real head turner – literally! There will be action everywhere and our stage & recovery teams will have to work hard to keep the courses flowing in the 3 days of Tuff Truck action. This is going to be another year not to miss.
