What do you guys think about bringing back the Camel Trophy, but with the new Bronco? The Yeti Challenge hopes to do just that. A spec vehicle multi-day adventure race.

Set in the backcountry of Alaska, 24 identical Ford Bronco's make their way through Alaska's wilderness overcoming technical challenges, challenging terrain, and obstacles.

I am trying to build a coalition of Bronco enthusiasts, sponsors and investors to bring this idea to life. If you fit in to any of those categories and are interested, visit https://yeti-challenge.com/

I could help with some legal work, but leave building / driving to others.

Okay I definitely came here because I thought the challenge was fitting a yeti in the back of a Bronco and I've been pretty curious about what coolers are going to be able to make it in there.

Now I realize this post is way cooler and this race sounds exciting as all hell!!

Is this event only going to be for 24 vehicles? Or will there be an open/amateur category?

The original Camel Trophy was sponsored by the Camel branded cigarettes (own by the R.J. Reynolds Company).

Maybe your Yeti Challenge can attract Yeti, the cooler maker as a major sponsor. Just a thought.

I hope you succeed. I would love to watch this adventure.

I remember watching the Camel trophy as a kid. It's probably the most influencial televised event of my life.

The model we are using is the Camel Trophy. It had 20 or so vehicles. If it get much larger, the logistics might get out of hand.

However, to get this off the ground, a group of privateers maybe required.

I’m in! Would love to give this a shot. Plus, it would give me an excuse to get back to Alaska! It has to be the most beautiful place I have ever been.
