2020 Rigs & Rolls at Eastern Creek wrap
Did you get along to last weekend’s Rigs & Rolls at Eastern Creek? Unsealed 4X4 had a great time and can’t wait for the next one or to share some of the ripper rigs on display – check out our gallery.
The inaugural Rigs & Rolls was held last weekend at Eastern Creek raising more than $5000 raised for charity between Club 4X4, the coffee crew, the food crew and merchandise from Unsealed 4X4. The Club 4X4 team put on an awesome event, which has been classed as a first-rate success for the first event of its kind by Club 4X4. More than 120 vehicles turned up to be included in the show and shine, with around 400 people attending the day. The amount and varied nature of the four-wheel drives that turned up on the day was absolutely astounding, and everyone that came along had something unique to look at, along with being able to chin wag with the owners, to get some ideas and see exactly how these rigs have been built. Let’s have a look at the Rigs and Rolls Wrap, and of course, the required photos.
The show and shine featured a bunch of different categories, including Best Pre-1980s, Best 1980s, Best 1990s, Best post 2000s, Toughest Rig and Best Tourer. They were won by a variety of four-wheel drives, from an old 2-stroke LJ50 Suzuki Sierra, a rather neat 80 Series LandCruiser, an aggressive Navara, an absolute beast of a 40 Series comp truck, among others. All in all, Wes tells us that he wished there were more categories, cause there were so many well-built rigs on the day.
Our very own Wes Whitworth was there, along with Project Rusty on display at the Unsealed 4X4 stand, with Wes being roped in to help judge the Show and Shine categories with Club 4X4 boss, Kal Ziflian, Nigel from the 4WD Association of New South Wales, and Michael ‘Borgy’ Borg from the Offroad Adventure Show.
The team at Club 4X4 are looking to hold these Rigs & Rolls events fairly often, somewhere in the vicinity of 6-8 weeks apart, and after the first one being such a great success, and generating funds for some exceptionally worthy charities, chances are it won’t be long until the next Rigs and Rolls is getting being held. Stay tuned.
But that’s enough out of us about the first-ever Rigs and Rolls Wrap, on to the photos below!
