Once upon a time this used to be a CJ Jeep! After rolling around Wellington, Peter “Pedro” Osborne would slowly transform the Jeep into a registered Homebuilt Club Truck, entering the odd trial beginning in 2005. As the trials bug began to spread, the Club Truck would then morph into a Trials Truck come 2008.

Along with navigator Skid, the duo would achieve a best result of 6th Overall at Round 5 in 2009, finishing a 17th Overall that season.

The Homebuilt in 2009

Peter Murphy would purchase the buggy for 2010, having spent more than a decade in C Class! The buggy would receive some flash new colours and be a stalwart of the class for next few seasons.

Peter Murphy is a longtime competitor of the sport since the 90’s. Originally competing in C Class, Murphy would drive a Homebuilt Suzuki Special for several years before upgrading to Archie Griffin’s Toyota Hilux Special for 2006.
