Ellis Track 4x4 Adventure (Ellis Challenge) HARD

Wesburn, VIC

See more trips

Ellis Track, it is considered one of the hardest tracks in Victoria, Australia.

 

Big rock, off-camber hill climb, mud, deep rut... 

 

It's a short track but it requires technical driving, experience and a very capable 4WD. It's most suitable for experienced 4wders and should not attempt if  you are inexperienced. 

 

It's located at Warbuton/Wesburn. Most of the hard sections will have chicken tracks around them. 

 

I will have an early start of the day. 

 

Depending on the group, I may run it as an Ellis Challenge (based on points). The challenge will require careful line picking, track building, technical driving and team work. Last but not least,  you have to have nerves of steel to complete the track and challenge. 

 

To give you an idea what to expect, see video below from my last trip. 

 

 

For this trip, I will limit this trip to 6 cars only. 

 

Note: Your vehicle has to be registered and fully insured (compensive or 3rd party). Sorry, no P Plate on this trip. 

 

Minimum requirement of your vehicles is

  1. 33" MT with at least 2" suspension lift
  2. Lockers or Traction Control
  3. Electric Winch
  4. Rock sliders / underguard are HIGHLY recommended

If possible, find yourself a navi (aka winch bitch) who can help you run your winch and spot for you if needed. 

 

Meeting point would be at Start of Ellis Track (Tarrango Rd) http://her.is/1NU3xKQ
