Winter Buster is a unique event. Unique because its held under the biggest North island Mountain in the middle of Winter. Unique because it encompasses Guided riding and marked trail riding.

A Quad Bike and side by side event that celebrates the diverse climate of the central plateau in true winter style.

Saturday is guided Safari day where we explore the features and some of the history of the 163,000 acres of the Waiouru military Training area.

Sunday spend the day on a Marked course in Training area on the Eastern side of SH1. The same course you like so much  ‘Safari’ in December last.  where you set your own pace and drive till you have had enough.

This ride 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.
