We’ve already shared some highlights and photos from the 2015 Croatia Trophy, courtesy of our good friends over at World4x4, but it’s ALWAYS good to hear from the drivers themselves. Jim Marsden, winner of this years Croatia Trophy in his Spider 9 powered Land Rover, put together his own behind the scenes race recap. No one knows those stories better than Jim!

Great race recap from Kristin & Kyle over at DrivingLine.com of the 2015 MetalCloak Stampede. As you likely already know [spoiler alert] Loren Healy pulled off the win. This is 3 years in a row now that Spider 9 IFS has won the MetalCloak Stampede. First with Jason Scherer, running the 1st ever Spider 9 IFS prototype, followed by Tom Wayes in the same car. This year, Loren gets the top honor and bragging rights having won the largest off-road race to hit Prairie City. Congrats Loren!

Time for an upgrade.

Jim Marsden & Team Gigglepin Off-Road Race Team have secured 1st place in this years Croatia Trophy. Think 8 days of non-stop off-road driver/vehicle/team punishment, in some of the harshest terrain Europe has to offer. Jim Marsden has become a seasoned Ultra4 name these days, in his signature Spider 9 powered Land Rover buggy. We are thrilled to see the team’s hard work pay off, and checking out all the photos and videos from race week, we’re wishing to have been there in person. Congrats Jim and the entire Gigglepin Team!
