Do you love off-roading? Have you never off-roaded at all, ever in your life? Here’s your chance to learn and drive with the best at Detroit 4Fest from September 8th to September 10th . Even better, if you’re a reader you’ll get a discount, and if you’re a member you’ll get an even bigger discount! Sign up here, more details below.
As part of a new partnership, The Autopian will be attending Detroit 4Fest, an exciting four-wheeling event that combines live music, motorsports, camping, off-roading, vendor demonstrations, and driver education — all at Holly Oaks ORV park in Holly, Michigan, just outside Detroit. The education part is where The Autopian comes in, as we’re partnering with 4Fest on an hour-long Off-Road 101 course. This is an introductory course with instruction from industry professionals.
David and Mercedes went on an epic off-road trip at Holly Oaks last year; you can read all about it here. And you can watch these clips:
Entry into Detroit 4Fest is $25 for the day and the class is $25, but if you’re an Autopian reader you can use the code Autopian15 to get a $15 entry fee. If you’re a member, check your email for a code for an addition $5 off the Off-Road 101 class. If you’re not a member, you can sign up and I’ll email you the code. Everyone who participates will get a sweet sticker.
You can sign up here for one or multiple days.
Will we be there? Absolutely. David is coming to Detroit on Friday, September 8 for the NightFest (a trail ride that starts at 7PM — see above); he has to leave for a wedding on Saturday morning, but hopes to at least take part in the first 101 course at 9AM. Mercedes will be at 4Fest on Saturday and Sunday.
What: An Off-Road 101 Course at Detroit 4Fest.
Where: Holly Oaks ORV Park in Holly, Michigan outside Detroit.
When: Friday, September 8th through Sunday, September 10th.
How: Sign up here and use code Autopian15 at checkout.
Important: If you want to off-road you need to bring an off-road worthy vehicle. Extra bonus points if you just bought the vehicle on Craigslist for $200 the week before. Bring a front-mounted flag or purchase one there (they’re $40 if purchased online). We’ll also be camping nearby if you just want to come camp with us. Check out the details in our Discord.
[UPDATE: The original version of this got the discount pricing wrong, it’s $15 for the pass, not $15 off the pass, and $20 for the class]
