Graeme Muldrew, from Kalgoorlie WA, will be bringing out his Pajero in Classic Outback Cross Country. Let’s meet Graeme and hear what’s in store…

What car will you be running in the 2016 COT?
It’s a 2005 Mitsubishi MP Pajero. The car was built in 2010 and has done a few Australasian Safaris… 2010 (7th OR), 2011 (6th OR), 2012 (14th – as I dislocated shoulder helping competitor change tyre). We also did the Broken Hill Silver City 600 in 2011 (10th OR).
