One of the most radical Homebuilt’s in the field, this special of engineering guru Glenn D’Ath features a lot of bells and whistles for a buggy under 700kgs! The lightest to compete within the last 15 years.

Featuring a 1200cc Nissan Micra engine & transmission, this buggy is the only one in the field equipped with portal axles, rear steer & hydraulic lockers. On 31″ tyres only often seen on A Class Suzuki’s, this buggy is small but nimble, relishing in days with dry conditions.

Glenn D’Ath is the son of four-time 1NZ Syd & Shirley D’Ath. Glenn’s son Jacob now co-drives making him the first 3rd generation 4-wheeler! Glenn previously has won A Class in & E Class in a Daihatsu Feroza, achieving the feats in 2009, 2013, 2015 & 2018!
