Ever tried driving a pick-up truck across a landscape that wasn't exactly built with the internal combustion engine in mind? Or powering your way through sand storms, blizzards, misty forests and deserts in a low-slung buggy with just a compass for company? You won't find any lay-bys or service stations here. This is the world of truck versus nature, and with vehicles that respond accurately to every hump and dip in the ground, you'll definitely wish you'd taken a plane. With plenty of options including training circuits, car-crushing competitions, time-trial challenges and the monster endurance rally itself, there's no way you'll be back in time for tea.
