If you’re a 4x4 fan, listen up: you could compete in this year’s Toyota Fortuner 4x4 Challenge and drive away with a brand-new Toyota Fortuner 2.4 GD-6 Manual valued at R454,000.

The challenge, taking place in November this year, will bring two days of off-roading, mountain biking, golfing, paddling and other fitness activities.


Times Media is sending one finalist to the event to join three other finalists. Each finalist will then partner with a celebrity to compete in a series of challenges. The finalist in the winning team wins the Fortuner!

The celebrities at the event will be racing and rally driver Giniel de Villiers; rugby player Ryno Benjamin of the Toyota Free State Cheetahs; Bafana Bafana midfielder Simphiwe Tshabalala; and road and off-road cyclist Andrew Mclean, the director of Toyota Cycle Lab.

It gets better: if you’re chosen as a semifinalist, you’ll already win a Garmin VIRB X Action Camera valued at R6,499.


Then, each finalist will also win a specialised Turbo Levo Hardtail 29 bicycle valued at R50,000 (or similar), with additional apparel and safety gear supplied courtesy of Salomon.

Times Media will pick three semifinalists in a random draw and contact them telephonically. Another random draw will then determine the finalist who gets to compete in the Fortuner 4x4 Challenge.

All you need to compete is a valid driver’s licence and an acceptable level of fitness.
