Not sure if anyone saw last Sunday's opening premier on the History channel but most all local club member's rig spec's surpass those participating in this race. Check it out on Sunday's if you get a chance.

I wouldn't go on a challenge like that with the ill prepared vehicles that they are driving. And just who is putting up the $10,000 prize money? I don't think there are many "clubs" that could put up that kind of coin and no sponsorships. I think that ANY of our rigs could keep up or out perform anything they are driving! (Also, where are they carrying the amount of fuel necessary for this sort of adventure)

Looks like some poor trail etiquette in the latest episode.  Someone must be on the hook to increase the entertainment level.

The editing is not good. Superjeep drove off and left his traction mats and twice it showed him dragging his winch cable behind his rig.

I noticed the traction mat abandonment too. Magically they were on his hood in the next seen. I also saw him driving over the winch cable but didn't catch the seen where it was behind him.

Calculating their travel time, they are averaging just over a whopping 3 hours per day.   :tumbleweed:

I still want to know where the $100,000 prize money is coming from! AND, if they are blazing a new trail, how come there are roads in front of them every where they go?

Looks like the guy driving Superjeep is a regular on Pirate. Maybe you can pose the prize money question to him directly in this thread --> http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/general-chit-chat/1913729-offroad-show-history-channel-25.html
