Arctic Trucks International (www.arctictrucks.com) announced today that a new world record of the fastest overland journey to the South Pole has been officially recognized by Guinness World Records. In December 2010 two Arctic Trucks vehicles crossed 2308km of the Antarctica High Plateau from Novolazarevskaya station (Novo) to the South Pole in 108 hours (4.5 days). The purpose-built AT Expedition vehicles, based around a Toyota Hilux platform, traveled at an average speed to South Pole of 21.4km/h and average fuel efficiency of 2.2km/per liter, with only a single refueling stop on the way. An unofficial improvement on the record itself was achieved for the return journey, which was faster still at only 3.5 days, averaging 27.5km/h. No comparable speed or fuel efficiency has ever been recorded for high plateau expeditions in Antarctica. Arctic Trucks built vehicles have now clocked over eighty thousand kilometers on the plateau, proving new benchmarks for speed, range, reliability and fuel efficiency for overland travel in this area. The two Arctic Trucks vehicles used for this round trip were both Arctic Trucks Expedition AT44 models. Arctic Trucks designs and builds these vehicles based around the Toyota Hilux 3.0 liter turbo diesel.

Arctic Express by Arctic Trucks in Krasnoyarsk 18.01.2014
18 января в Красноярске завершилось уникальное мероприятие под названием Arctic Express! С 13:00 до 20:00 около ТРК «КомсоМОЛЛ» все желающие смогли почувствовать себя настоящими экстремальными путешественниками! Гости имели возможность принять участие в тест-драйве на специально выстроенном Adventure park (парке приключений), имитирующем природные условия, в которые попадают искатели приключений. Самые яркие впечатления получили те, кто не побоялся покорить на автомобиле не имеющую аналогов в мире гору ARCTIC TRUCKS, превышающую высоту трехэтажного здания. Также на мероприятии был представлен легендарный автомобиль ACRTIC TRUCKS, на котором команда Top Gear достигла магнитного Северного Полюса. Гости с удовольствием фотографировалась с ним, а также с ездовыми собаками породы «хаски», которые были специально привезены из закрытого питомника. Гости имели уникальную возможность познакомиться с Владом Мининым, известным путешественником, экспертом проекта Arctic Express. Он рассказал журналистам и гостям проекта Arctic Express о принципах экологического этикета водителей внедорожных автомобилей, а так же дал советы начинающим экстрималам. Всем, кто успел проголодаться, компания «Дымов» предоставила возможность зарядиться силами от экологически чистого мяса. Гости по достоинству оценили сочные стейки, приготовленные профессиональными поварами на углях на свежем воздухе. Благодаря диджеям и ведущим радио-станции "Серебрянный дождь" праздничная атмосфера царила с утра до самого вечера. Во второй половине дня состоялось выступление по силовому экстриму, а также увлекательное шоу по горнолыжному и сноубордическому фристайлу. Вечер завершился праздничным фаер шоу и салютом!
