There will be more mud and fun at Brighton River, Santa Cruz, St Elizabeth on October 28, Sunday, for the second Off-Roading on the Farm event.

“We saw the off-roading scene growing, but there wasn't much for them to do. Given that I wanted to turn the Brighton River property into an off-road adventure park, we came up with Off-Roading on the Farm,” Troy Bernard, event co-promoter, told the Jamaica Observer's Auto magazine.

The first event was held on July 29 of this year.

“That event was a test run and we learned a lot.”

With the experience under his belt, Bernard has expanded what Off-Roading on the Farm has to offer. For those attending to stretch the legs of their off-roading vehicles there will be a larger redesigned mud pit, staircase section and log challenge. While there is an entrance fee, the challenges are free to enter with prizes from first to third places from the various event sponsors. Brand new is the addition of motocross for those who do their off-roading on two wheels. There will be a kiddies' village with Red Bull providing the musical entertainment.

“For most people it was their first time doing something of this nature,” he said.

Bernard has also expanded the marketing to pull a wider audience.

“Most of our support came from the area and Montego Bay. We partnered with Wilmotorsports to help bring the Kingston crowd. He'll be convoying from there. I just want to thank my sponsors, Mitsubishi Motors, Tropical Battery, ALS Garage, Amsoil, Falken Tyres, Printmedia JA, Whytes Auto, and Maddvision Productions, because without them this event wouldn't be possible.”

Off-Roading on the Farm hopes to be a biannual event as it builds for the future.
