26th October - 2 November 2008
The Borneo Safari involves 4WD vehicles and their fearless drivers who will be challenged in the world’s most beautiful jungle terrains in Sabah. It is a unique adventure where all participants, be it men or women, enthusiasts or professional, have an equal chance of winning.
Participating teams will compete for awards, which are presented in recognition of driving skill, innovation in vehicle recovery, obstacle clearing, and of utmost importance, cooperation and team spirit. Points will be allocated for many special stages set during the event.
Tasks include deep-driver crossing, map reading, bridge building and mud side clearing. Points are deducted for over-speeding, dangerous driving and vehicle equipment abuse.
The event will take the teams along Lingan Batu, Ulu Kimanis, Bambanagan, Binsuluk, Beaufort and Kuala Penyu. The flag-off is scheduled for 26 October at Sabah Tourism Board headquarters along Gaya Street and is expected to be officiated by the Minister of Tourism, Culture and Environment, Datuk Masidi Manjun.
