My suggestion is that you make your course full of tight turns, vertical walls no more than a half meter tall, places where the suspension will have to twist - opposite corners of the vehicle dropping down, and some large rocks to drive over. Set up stakes with flags to mark the boundaries of the course. Then give a point every time the contestant stops, backs up, hits a stake, drives outside the boundary, or needs outside help. Lowest number of points wins.
That will reward planning, slow careful driving, and knowledge of the vehicle, which will keep it safe for everyone. If time is a factor in scoring someone will get hurt by doing something foolish.
The challenge is to set up a course that doesn't give a big advantage to one particular type or size vehicle. Watch what the different vehicles in your group have trouble with when you're out playing, and include obstacles that guarantee a challange for everyone somewhere on the course.
