Car 09 – Gumtree 4×4

Car 9 was built in the UK workshops of Gumtree 4×4 in 1997 and initially used for the UK Rhino Charge which the team won twice before it was shipped out to Kenya in 1999.

This is one of the few vehicles which regularly still drives to and from the event whenever possible!

The teams aim is to finish and enjoy themselves whilst raising as much money as possible for Rhino Ark!

The team has won the Gauntlet, the Rob Coombes Memorial Trophy and the Most Meritorious Entry Award in 2016 which they won  after driving into a bees nest in a lugga and all getting badly stung including one team member requiring helicopter evacuation. The team thoroughly enjoys the post event sundowners that are held at so many wonderful event locations.
