Car 5 has competed in all the Rhino Charge challenges since its inception in 1989! This makes them one of the oldest competitors in the charge!
Car 5 has won the event in 1999, 2008, 2014 and 2016 and it is seldom that they do not appear in the top 5! Not only are they great chargers but they are also great fundraisers, which has resulted in them winning the Victor Ludorum 9 times in the last 10 years!
So far Car 5 has raised over 150,000,000Kes for the Rhino Ark Charitable Trust! That is HUGE and amazing effort guys!
A sight to behold, car 5 is the actual definition of an off road rig. Depicting the unbreakable looks of a car out of a zombie apocalypse movie, with massive tires that dig deep into the varying Rhino Charge terrains, silver metallic body paneling that allows the car to submerge into the thicket and emerge with as little as a scratch on the body, topped off with an aggressive bulbar and metal mesh windows to ensure the ultimate off road usability, while also ensuring the protection of the driver.
Sadly last year Alan McKittrick retired but he is still very much involved with the event, as he is a Rhino Ark Board Member, and his son Graham plays a key role in continuing the legacy of the team.
