News Flash:
Aussie Suzuki owners were snubbed by the staff at 4Wheel & Off-Road, as they were almost completely overlooked in their "Foreign Invasion" & "Outback Challenge" articles in the Nov. 2001 issue. The pieces, both by Christian Hazel, only mentioned Suzuki's in one place - an ad for Rockhopper gears. There are photos of what I would guess to be nearly every cool 4x4 down under Except Suzuki's. Were there not any Samurai's in the Outback Challenge?

Re: News Flash:

OILBURNER, There was one Sierra long wheelbase flat-bed suv and a very modified Vitara 4 door Estate entered in the Outback Challenge (by a husband and wife team with the missus doing the driving.) The Vitara has been in the event previously and has always done well but the lady is a little light on the foot to get into the top ten. ( So far.) The Sierra (Sami)did very well against some very, very modified full size 4bys, coming home in tenth place overall. Further, a Zook from great Britain came 8th in the world class 2000, 'Rain Forest Challange'in Malaysia against vehicles from many countries including the USA and Canada. Not bad for a little old 'four wheeled motorbike'????
Regards, John M

We have the same problems with the mags here in the states as well. They just don't see the off-road capabilities like we do.
