Unless you have been living under a rock for the past two decades or so, if you call yourself an “off roader,” then you know exactly what a trophy truck is. Trophy trucks could quite possibly be the most capable enthusiast vehicle available on the planet. From three feet of suspension travel to 800 hp and 39-inch tires, a trophy truck is on any off roader’s “wish list” when it comes to going as fast as possible through some of the gnarliest terrain available on planet earth.
With that being said, a lot of the time we think of trophy trucks as only being used in Baja and the southwestern region of the United States. The truth is, some of the industry’s premier trophy truck builders like Geiser Bros in Phoenix, AZ, ship their trucks all over the world.
In a recent video presented by Toyo Tires and Jetpilot titled, “Attack the Dirt” – A Trophy Truck Documentary, viewers get to follow along one of Australia’s most successful drivers, Brad Gallard, as he prepares for the legendary Finke Desert Race. Throughout the video, you get to see a small glimpse of what the Australian terrain is like – and if the video is any indication, it is safe to say that Australia definitely has some terrain that rivals what one would usually find in Baja.
While the video pays homage to some of the pioneers of desert racing, it is definitely interesting to see the intense level of racing that can be found outside of the United States. Check out all the exciting high-speed action from Australia in this documentary and let us know what you think of the video in the comments section below!
