That’s odd. Last time I heard they were interning the NAS LR3 in the G4 challenge to show that those trucks are still capable off road as the previous Disco’s.

No USA participant? I hope that's not true.

Kinda off on a tangent here, but just the other day I saw a G4 Edition of the Freelander glowing in its bright ugly orange in California going northbound on the 5 (Golden State Freeway) near Gorman. The driver of the Freelander did not wave back or even take a glance even though I was driving by his side for some time!!! Anyways.

That's odd. The USA is ineligible. I wonder why that is so.
