    Default Lappland Trophy 2007

    http://www.laplandtrophy.com/2006/

    24 timers Trophy i dagslys 21-23 Juli 2007.
    Klassene er delt inn i under og over 33, så det kan jo passe for alle, det er en gjeng fra AES som har deltatt tidligere.

    Noen som har vært der tidligere, noen som har tips for hvordan utstyre bilen og føreren best mulig for en slik tur?

    Default Been there - done that.

    I 2005 var vi tre biler fra Tromsø som deltok skal prøve å informere så godt jeg kan.

    Vi kjørte team siden kun jeg hadde kartleser. En kan være 2-4 biler i samme team. Kjører man ikke i team må du ha kartleser. Dette pga sikkerhet og fordi en må ta bilde av fører som holder i bil og post, som dokumentasjon på funnet post.

    Etter start får en CD/USB lager med postene. Da må de lastes inn på PC, eventuelt konverteres. I 2005 var punktene i OZI Explorer format, et program som finnene bruker mye. Vi konverterte til Garmin sitt format siden vi ikke var så familiær med OZI. Derfor anbefaler jeg alle som skal delta på Lapland Trophy å laste ned OZI Explorer og lære seg programmet. Som dere skjønner så må minst en i teamet ha PC med og være den som styrer gruppen (om en kjører team). Vi fikk også papirkart over området, der punktene var plottet inn, samt en liste med punktenes verdi.

    Hvert punkt har poeng verdi utfra vanskelighetsgrad. Det er lurt å legge litt strategi på forhånd rundt dette. Skal en kjøre mye og plukke lette punkt med lav verdi eller jobbe mye og plukke få punkter med høy verdi? Den med flest poeng etter 24 timer vinner

    Dekkstørrelser og portaler gir klasseinndelingen. Dekk måles med sveist "gaffel"; dvs det nytter ikke å krangle om hva som står på dekket.

    Vinsj er lurt å ha i tillegg til stiger/vaffler/kjørebruer.

    Alt må være stroppet fast i bilen og det er krav om 2kg brannslukker og førstehjelpsaker.

    Til sjåfør og kartleser trenger en mye å drikke og kokegreier for litt middag. De hadde organisert en grillplass ute i området der en kunne kjøpe noe, men det var ikke billilg. På den samme plassen kunne vi satt en henger med verktøy, reservedeler og fuel, men den gangen var vi ikke klar over muligheten. I 2006 var området nærmere overnatting/resturanten og jeg tror utstyret kunne da stå ved start/mål området.

    Jeg planlegger å reise. Lapland Trophy er mye bedre enn SOT, mer intenst

    Har vurdert å ta en tur til Finland til sommeren. Tror det blir litt mar action enn på SOT.

    Hvor mye ekstra drivstoff anbefaler du å ta med da?

    Kan du sende kart på mail til meg?

    Vi kjørte Range Rover 3,5, Defender 110 TD5 og Cherokee 4,0 HO.
    - 3,5 liter V8 trengte 40 liter ekstra.
    - 4,0 liter R6 trengte 30 liter ekstra.
    - 2,5 liter TD5 trengte strengt tatt ikke noe ekstra.
    Jeg regner ca 5 liter på timen under slike arrangement, lavserie og vinsjing

    Easiest way to learn something about LT is order 2005 and 2006 DVD´s.

    It can be a good idea to continue this discussion in English, so our Finnish friends can join us, and help us transilate the home page :)

    I have seen the DVD from 2206... i think it is awsome

    Thank you Henning! So you have seen film from 2005. Thats good!

    if you have vehicle which is built to handle over 35" tyres. use at least those tyres. Dont try to easier your trophy by putting smaller tires. Not worth it. Seen that.

    So today you need at least 2 winches. Front and rear. Lots of rope. Good camera and most important is good humor!

    Soon there will come DVD from last years competition and there is little bit more info of what you need.

    Swedish groups were wonderful in 2006!! They did know how to enjoy of the event!

    Default 2006 regler etc

    Her finner dere reglene og annen informasjon fra 2006.
    http://www.laplandtrophy.com/keskust....php?topic=8.0
    Viktig å være OBS på klasseinndelingen som går på hjul størrelse, portaler og alene/gruppe.

    For safety reasons each vehicle must have at least a driver and a co-driver (2 persons), in SafariOrienteering and ATV classes minimum 2 persons are required in the group.

    Team made up of women only can have 51mm bigger tyres.

    Original
    The vehicle must be registered, and it must have a valid MOT taxed. Maximum wheel diameter is 787mm. The vehicle must not be lifted in any way. Portal axles are not allowed. Vehicles that are no more than 10 years old can have 51mm bigger wheel diameter if wheel size is valid original wheel size (diameter and width), and this can be proven with official documents.
    Standard
    The vehicle must be registered, and it must have a valid MOT taxed. Maximum wheel diameter is 838mm, 787mm with portal axles.
    Modified
    The vehicle must be registered or it must have temporary license plate, and it must have valid traffic insurance. Maximum wheel diameter is 915mm, 838mm with portal axles. Vehicles without hard roof (cabriolet) must have a roll cage, at least stout main safety arch with back stays.
    Prototype
    The vehicle must be registered or it must have temporary license plate, and it must have valid traffic insurance. Maximum wheel diameter is 1043mm (also with portal axles). Vehicles without hard roof (cabriolet) must have a roll cage, at least stout main safety arch with back stays.
    Small SafariOrienteering
    At least 2 but no more than 4 vehicles that are registered and have valid MOT taxed. Maximum wheel diameter is 838mm. It is enough to have one driver in each vehicle. The group must stay together for the entire duration of the competition.
    Big SafariOrienteering
    At least 2 but no more than 4 vehicles that are registered and have valid MOT taxed. Maximum wheel diameter is 915mm. It is enough to have one driver in each vehicle. The group must stay together for the entire duration of the competition.

    Is it correct to say that in big safariorienteering the maximum wheel size is 36". So everyone with bigger tires needs a navigator? And cannot drive in a team?

    Can anyone answer?

    Looks like your observation is correct. Borrow some smaler tires or get a co-driver so you can compete in the Prototype class.

    You get a codriver then. So we can test german steel against japaneese sheetmetal

    Knixxen, they measure the real size of the tire, maybe your 37 is reallt 35.9? Try to measure the hight of your tire in cm.

    I know my MTRs are 37", but I am planning to buy 37" iroks. And these har 36,9" according to intercos-tech-site. I might consider buying them in 36" to be able to compete in the smaller class. Buth I`d rather gain an inch and buy 38s than loose one and buy 36s...

    Mercemann: I am planning on bringing a navigator anyway, but I assume we drive together if you do the same?

    I will attend, and compete in whatever class my tires put me in... Slightly modified 4runner on 37-38s with something in both diffs and multi-mount toilet seat...

    I will attend Small Safari or Standard, depending on what Ranger is doing most likely Small Safari.

    I will use my new shoppingcar(t) Vitara SWB, with locker in the rear, winch and Kizz on the stereo 30 or 31 inch tires.

    Well our Toyota don't look like much, but it works. It's actually owned by good friend of mine, but he wants me to drive it. He is beeing a "winch monkey" at the same time.

    Some tech:

    Toyota Land Cruiser LJ-70
    Chevy tpi V6
    TH-350 tranmission
    T-case out of 40-series cruiser
    LJ axles with toyota 100% electric locker front, rear is still open, but hopefully we will find cheap ARB in it before Lapland
    35/16-15" Boggers on beadlock wheels
    Full exo-rollcage
    bucket seats + 4-point belts
    electric winches front and rear, frnt with a winch rope, rear with wire.



    .....like I said, don't look so good, but it works and I really don't need to "baby" the body while driving:p :p
