However the competitors in this event seem to have taken full-sized Tatra lorries and converted them into mud monsters. There are extra axles, huge mud-capable tyres, air compressors galore, diesel engines with the grunt to tow 747s and rollcages made of pipes so big they could scaffold a skyscraper. Our favourite has to be the bright yellow eight-wheeler that simply romps around the course. This is not your typical gentlemanly trials contest, as evidenced by the cheers from the crowd when a truck ends up tipped onto its side. It is absurdly good fun watching these leviathans tackle impossible looking terrain. Can we have a go?
