NVIDIA Editor's Day 2014 - Events, Parties, and Lots of Fun

Land Rover Off-Road Challenge


The next part of the trip was a team building exercise, where we were driven out to compete in a Land Rover Off-Road Challenge, which went for around three hours. Again, I had never done anything like this before, so it was quite an eye-opening, and very entertaining experience.





Part one of the Land Rover Off-Road Challenge had us driving a $150,000 vehicle (gulp) with a cup of water suction-cupped to the bonnet. We had to drive over bumps, ditches, and more on a dirt road, spilling the least amount of water as possible.




It was intense, no fooling around here, folks! Hands-on 10 and 2, please!



Part two of the Land Rover Off-Road Challenge saw us wearing blindfolds, yes blindfolds, while we drove these expensive, but oh-so-beautiful vehicles. With the blindfolds on, we had a 'navigator' that stayed in the car with us, who would navigate us through the maze of witch's hats.



Here's a different look from what we could see, it was really quite breathtaking to be there.



This time, NVIDIA's Andrew Coonrad was the passenger, directing the car through the poles.



The final challenge: driving the Land Rover between poles, that were positioned inches away from the rear-view mirrors on the car. The precision required was crazy, with every single person needed to be hanging out of windows (with their seat belts on, or you lose points!) in order to win.




When I said we were hanging out of the windows, I really meant it.
