Ice Buster is a new and unique 4WD event. Unique because its held under the biggest North island Mountain in the middle of Winter. Unique because it encompasses Guided Touring in the best Alpine terrain in NZ.

A Four wheel drive event that celebrates the diverse climate of the central plateau in true winter style. Saturday and Sunday are guided Safari days where we explore the features and some of the history of the 163,000 acres of the Waiouru military Training area. This Safari is deliberately placed in mid winter to give you a chance to drive in real winter conditions. It is also placed at a time when there are few other events or distractions.

An important notice. Because it is winter “Ice Buster” is only open to trucks that are equipped winter conditions. This event is not suitable for ” Shiney -Shinies.”  Ice Buster will only be open to a maximum of 50 vehicles of Three groups/convoys of 17.
