There are some big names when it comes to endurance racing in the automotive industry:

Le Mans, Paris-Dakar and of course the famous, now defunct, Camel trophy.

Each with its own unique style and set of challenges designed to take man and machine to the very limits of their capabilities.

Now we have the Conti 4x4, an off-road race that will make even the hardiest of drivers think twice.

But, and here’s the kicker, it’s open to anybody. All you have to do to possibly take part is complete the tasks you’ll find at and if you’re lucky enough to get through, you and a co-driver could be setting off across the Sahara and through the Atlas Mountains in a Hummer later in the year.

The challenges range from questions on Twitter, to riddles, treasure hunts and code puzzles.

Not too strenuous, when you think about what the prize is.

Vroom vroom.
