Dirt never hurt

There was full noise and mud in Puriri on April 15 as around 40 drivers put the pedal to the metal for the final round of the National 4×4 Trials Series. The event was hosted by the Thames Valley 4WD Club and saw entrants navigate a series of courses including steep hills and mud bogs. Reporter GORDON PREECE was at trackside to snap the action.
