The Petron Philippine Overland Expedition (PHL-OX) is set to make its comeback next year.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • When and where will the Philippine Overland Expedition be held?

    The competition will be on February 18-25 in General Nakar, Quezon.
  • What's new with next year's competition?

    The competition for 2024 will have an Open-Class category and a technical multi-stage segment.
  • Set to bring in more challenging obstacles and a new competition category, the PHL OX will be held on February 18-25 in General Nakar, Quezon.

    According to event organizers, the Petron Philippine Overland Expedition for the upcoming year will include a technical multi-stage segment designed to challenge each competitors' driving and survival skills, resilience, and camaraderie.

    Those who want to join may compete in the Team Competition (comprised of three rigs with six competitors) or in the Open Class Category (as an individual rig).

    The Open Class Category is a new segment which will have individual rig entries with only one driver and assisted by his/her co-driver. “Special emphasis will be given to driver safety in addition to vehicle set up and capabilities, with rig specifications used in international 4x4 competitions to be followed,” PHL-OX organizers said in a statement.

    On the other hand, the Team Competition participants must retain at least 80 percent of their original body and chassis structure. Vehicles must also have full recovery and river crossing capacity.

    Each team must also be self- reliant; bringing with them provisions such as food, water, power source as well as critical vehicle spare parts and supplies.

    The Petron PHL-OX 2024 will flag off from the General Nakar Municipal Hall in Quezon province enroute to the final challenge in Umiray.

    The team with the fastest time to complete each timed stage will receive maximum points. Penalty points will be deducted should a competitor fail to adhere to certain safety guidelines such as not wearing seatbelts while the vehicle is in motion and not using gloves when winching.

    Similar to PHL-OX last year, the champion team will take home P500,000 while the second- and third-placers will receive P200,000 and P100,000 respectively. Meanwhile, the victor in the Open Class Category will have P200,000.

    Aside from the competition, the Petron PHL-OX 2024 will also have an overland jamboree from February 21-24 that is expected to gather hundreds of campers, adventure enthusiasts, and manufacturers.
