The track is concentrated around the Nissan show truck, a spectacular 20-metre articulated truck that acts as a mobile nerve centre, or in this case, as a high-tech hospitality area.

In addition, members of the public will be able to join an experienced and highly-qualified Nissan/Dunlop Off Road Tactix instructor for a lap of a 4x4 obstacle course, where a selection of Nissan recreational vehicles will tackle a number of obstacles including a steep side slope, axle twisters, beach sand, and mudpools.

The emphasis will be on having fun while demonstrating to the public what Nissan products are capable of.

As well as the latest version of the legendary Patrol off-road wagon, Nissan will have both petrol and turbodiesel versions of the acclaimed Hardbody double cabs for demonstration purposes.

A static display alongside the show truck will be representative of the current Nissan 4x4 line-up, with Hardbody, Patrol and X-Trail on hand for those who want to study the vehicles close up.

One of the most impressive parts of the display will be the show truck itself, a custom made horse and trailer combination which has already become a star attraction at off-road races and other events.

The UD350 Nissan Diesel horse is powered by a 350 kW turbodiesel, and tows a 12-metre long double-axle trailer which features air suspension, side awnings, flat-screen televisions, and its own generator.

All the necessary equipment to convert it into a comfortable and classy entertainment area is carried on board.
