Talking overall 4 wheeled classes. You know the top guys we all like to keyboard talk about.
Since the paradigm has changed into something most are not familiar with. Who or maybe even what class will be in the Top finishing?

- The most calm intelligent driver with the best support team. The one that can adjust to the new environment.
- A 4WD vehicle
- According to @Curt LeDuc a UTV will be in the Top 5.

Or will it be the status quo that wins most of the big races ?

I agree.... add 24 hrs to the time limit.... The mud isn't going to dry out in a day..... Class 11 could win in these conditions.... but.... It's all about the big money trophy trucks..... like always.....
