Not sure if any of the guys from 3rd rock Victoria are heading up, a few of them are talking about it but were talking of flying up then they'll need to find a way to get to Milbrodale.

Otherwise we could all meet up somewhere and travel there together.

Three New Stages Added
After a HUGE weekend of excavation and earth-moving over the Australia Day long weekend, Greg Hamilton (Competition Manager) is pleased to announce the completion of not 1, not even 2, but 3 new stages for TTC08. Yes, that’s right, to keep it fresh and interesting for both teams and spectators alike, there will be 3 brand new courses for the Tough Dog Tuff Truck Challenge in 2008.

The first, is the all-new “Devil’s Marbles” (brought to you by DPChip), with over 80 metres of retaining walls, combined with over 150 tonnes of solid rock, masterfully placed into position by some crazy excavator and bobcat drivers. To be run by Dale Moore, this stage will combine all the best aspects of the All Terrain Challenge from prior years, with a magnificent viewing area for thousands of spectators. This stage will be absolutely insane and a must to see.

The second all-new stage has been christened Out The Back, as it is just up the back-blocks to the left of Mini Wirraba and above the Frame Twister. Here you will find a natural amphitheatre, ready for spectators to pitch their chairs and watch non-stop action as the teams pit their machines against the many twists, turns and squeezes that Stephen Barton has brought to reality. While quite different to the Rocky Horror in the past, Stephen has taken-up the challenge to create something that is truly special, and will test all comers.

And to round out the trio of new stages, we have Mick Watts who complained that cause the other guys got a new track, why couldn’t he. So off he went, in search of trees, boulders, ledges, twists, turns and sheer rock faces, returning with an evil grin on his face, and a master plan to ensure all competitors remember this stage for years to come. The plan is to restrict the drivers vision, but giving them plenty to concentrate on from behind the wheel.

Not to be outdone, there are going to be some major changes to the Frame Twister, with Rob Alexander coming aboard to set the bar higher than ever, and build on the enormous efforts of previous stage manager, Glen Philpott. Look for no other options but going over the tyres this year, and an all-new path through the obstacles.

Not to be outdone, Steve Price has some magic in mind to re-vamp the Mini Wirraba stage, with more twists and turns that ever, and some extra entertainment to keep the crowd happy when one of the big rigs fails part-way.

But the best part for spectators is that all stages will be so close together this year, that once you plant your backside in your comfy chair, you should be able to see all 5 day driving stages from your one vantage point. So whether you choose to be up the back of Up The Back, or lined along the Frame Twister, or even prime position at the start of Devil’s Marbles, you should be able to see all the action across all 5 stages, and kept up-to-date by our Tuff Truck commentary team over the weekend.

And that’s before we mention the Mudrat’s Revenge (the annual crowd-pleaser), the Mystery Night Run, the Travel Ramp and Show n’ Shine / Engineering stages. All up, 9 stages for competitors to attempt and complete (we hope).

So what will be your favourite stage this year? Will it be the rocks, the tyres, the mud, the logs, or will it be the jaw-dropping angles these rigs must navigate and endure to complete the courses. Suffice to say, there will be something for everyone, and everyone will enjoy the entire event.
