The 2022 Nevada Trophy Registration is Open

The Nevada Trophy 2022 will be the 26th year of the event which makes this GPS “rally raid” the oldest in North America, preceding geocaching.

Nevada Trophy

The event is is based on the Camel Trophy and the organizers have chosen to expand the event which will take place from the 16th to the 19th February 2022 in Fernley, Nevada. The event was created by Michael Green in 1995 and first ran in 1996 out of Sparks, Nevada.

Nevada Trophy

The event is won by earning points, each car is made up of a driver and navigator. Waypoints worth 100-1000 points are earned depending of the degree of difficulty. The waypoint scores make up the majority of the score, the remainder is earned via special or mandatory tasks, this could be driving, recovery, navigational tasks, etc. There is a strict time schedule and penalty points are handed out when time limits are exceeded or rules violated and the best score at end of the event is declared the winner.
