Fulcrum at the 2017 4WD Corroboree

 

Over the long weekend in Queensland the Fulcrum Team attended the 37th Annual 4WD Queensland Corroboree at the Bluff Creek campgrounds in Kenilworth. The event was hosted by the Mitsubishi 4WD Owners Club of QLD (Inc) in association with Four Wheel Drive QLD and saw over 600 attendees camping for the weekend across the property.

The 2017 Corroboree had 4WD Clubs from around the state gather together for a three-day event of 4wding, entertainment, displays and of course the NRL Grand Final. Fulcrum was the Diamond sponsor for the event and had one of the largest displays situated at the entering crossroads.

In the sweltering heat the Fulcrum Team created an inviting display showcasing their product range and got to know the attending members of the 4WD Community. The centre piece, or main attraction, of the Fulcrum display was Toby Price’s Trophy Truck from the Finke Desert Race. This truck had a lot of attention and questions, even more so when it went for a quick trip around the camp, it could be heard from the other side of the property as it cruised around.

While at the event the Fulcrum Hilux, and other vehicles in the Fulcrum Team, went on a few medium and difficult 4WD Trips.  These trips took the team to some spectacular lookouts and through the country side of Kenilworth. The team tackled hill climbs, deep wombat holes, rocky descents, several creek crossings and more. These trips also allowed Fulcrum to test their own suspension in new conditions and terrains.

The Fulcrum Team also participated in a Tug-Of-War competition between the 4WD Clubs on the Saturday afternoon. Going up against the Gold Coast 4WD Club in a mixed team and winning (with two women from the Mitsubishi 4WD Club completing our team). Due to not competing against any other team this made the Fulcrum Team #undefeated.

On the Saturday night a Mitsubishi sponsored band, Just Cruisin’, played for the attendees. During this show the Fulcrum Team sat around their new branded fire pit and enjoyed the atmosphere. Due to our prime location we could also enjoy the band as they covered some great old classics! #douglife

Sunday was another great day that saw many more people visit our display, get a quote and/or purchase some 4WD products from us. Our team were on hand all weekend for all the attendee’s suspensions queries and in some cases fixes or just for a great old chat!

As Sunday came to a close we saw everyone come together under the stars to watch the broadcasted NRL Grand Final, on a large projector. Before and during half time raffles were also held where some attendees won some great prizes, including Fulcrum Voucher. Dedicated NRL fans watched right until the end even after the rain started!

As the event winded down the weather took a change and saw the rains begin. With a full 24 hours’ worth of rain from Sunday night it was a relief come Tuesday as the sun came back out before the Tow Truck had to pick up the Trophy Truck.

Fulcrum wishes to thank the Mitsubishi 4WD Owners Club for the opportunity to be the Diamond Sponsors for the event and all those who came over to the display to say hello! We hope to attend more of these events in the future and become more involved with the 4WD Clubs around the country.
