Scott Biggs is top 4x4 driver at the Extreme Challenge in Turakina

May 02, 2018

Auckland 4x4 driver Scott Biggs is getting used to winning thrillers.

The newly-crowned 4x4 National Trials champion became the first driver to "do the double" as he also regained the Suzuki Extreme Challenge title at organiser Dan Cowper's challenging man-made course on his Turakina farm on Sunday.

In the 4th annual challenge and arguably the most exciting, 2016 winner Biggs was deadlocked on points with Tauranga's defending champion and two-time winner Andrew Garner, after the ten elite-level drivers had completed the ten courses in five hours of action.

This required a shoot-out back at the 'Time Attack' hazard from earlier in the day – which was the only hazard judged on speed instead of completion – and Biggs with co-driver brother Jarred let the nitrous fly to blitz Garner's impressive lap time by nearly three seconds and win the challenge.
