The UK Rhino Charge is the small brother of the famous Kenyan event and is run annually, usually in September. It is open to all 4x4s and does not require the same level of preparation or off-road experience as is necessary to compete in the Kenyan Rhino Charge. Any well equipped vehicle and crew can enter and team work is often more important than anything else if they are to succeed in the many and varied tasks involved in the day’s competition. Previous winners have driven vehicles as diverse as a Land Rover 110 and a Suzuki Vitara.
Teams can be made up of between 2 and 6 members depending on the size and seating capacity of the vehicle. Entry fee is £100 and the minimum sponsorship which needs to be raised is £400.
The Victor Ludorum winning team of the UK Rhino Charge will be offered the chance to enter the Kenyan Rhino Charge event subject to raising the 1.5 million shillings sponsorship and finding a vehicle/team to join.
The UK Rhino Charge is set for Sunday 18th September at Hook Farm,Hook Lane, West Hoathly, West Sussex, RH19 4PT.
