The National Drivers Challenge takes place on an annual basis, with the location in previous years alternating between Ruapuna and Feilding. However, if you are interested in hosting a Drivers Challenge outside of these areas, please feel free to contact the Events Team for further information on track and challenge requirements. Participation has steadily increased since the UFBA introduced the event in 2004. More than 50 brigade drivers from around the country are expected to compete this year.
