Black Rhino Wheels and Nitto Tires are staging the first-ever “4×4 exposition” in the Philippines. The event is set to be the largest gathering of 4×4 vehicles, bringing together overlanding enthusiasts to promote the outdoor lifestyle, as well as the passion for off-roading rigs. The expo will be held on September 28 and 29, at Arcovia City in Pasig.
The 4×4 Expo is envisioned as a venue for enthusiasts to gather as a community to enjoy the different aspects that go into the outdoor lifestyle. Arcovia City will be providing over 18,000 square meters of property to accommodate a variety of activities. One of the highlights of the weekend will be a fully functional offroading track, where even beginners can learn the basics of safe driving over uneven terrain. The track will include makeshift sand dunes, a dirt road, and a water-wading moat.
Automotive accessory brands preferred by off-road enthusiasts upgrading their vehicles will display their products. Joining main sponsors Black Rhino Wheels and Nitto Tires are Bilstein, PIAA, Motul, Decathlon, Atoy Customs, Overland Kings, CTEK, Coleman, among others. There will also be scheduled tech talks by some sponsors that will discuss how to make overlanding a safe hobby, and how to get ready for the trails.
The gathering will be nothing without a showcase of impressive 4×4 rigs and vehicles by the industry’s enthusiasts. Visitors can expect a full variety that will highlight today’s offroad styling and upgrade techniques. Not only will there be individual displays, but also participation from some of the country’s biggest car clubs, such as the Land Rover Club, Jeep Club, Terra Nation, Jimny Club, Raptor Group, Montero Sport United, to name a few.
Another highlight will be the collaboration with the Pinoy Prepper Bazaar, and Association of Philippine Volunteer Fire Brigades (APVFBI), who will share disaster preparedness and fire safety tips. The Pitmasters Club will also be whipping up mouth-watering meats all day at the Expo.
The 4×4 Expo is supported by notable car brands like Chevrolet, GAC Motors, Isuzu, Jeep, Land Rover, Mitsubishi Motors, and Suzuki. These brands will be offering test drives of their latest 4×4 vehicle models that are geared for the offroad lifestyle and how these can be customized for the sport.
