Rob Duf was tired of watching from the side lines dreaming of his glory days, so he sold his really fast ultra-4 car (He was afraid of the power) to buy a former winning rear steer buggy. Rob thinks the cup is going to the mainland but he can keep dreaming...

Karl took a Ford Ranger and with a lot of work and very little time turned it in an Island Cup winning Buggy. He has now taken it one step further and turned it into a rear steer buggy. He has also "upgraded" the motor by throwing out the 2.9L and dropping in a big 4.0L. Karl will be looking to win the cup back to back, this time in rear steer. Lets see if Karl can win with only 1 shot at each line.

SPENCER HUGHES IS THE WEIRDEST DUDE ON THE BLOCK, HE WILL TELL YOU HE'S NOT GAY BUT HIS ACTIONS SAY OTHER WISE. HE ALWAYS HAS HIS BIG DILDO OUT STIRRING UP THE MUCK, IF YOU SEE HIM HOLDING "ICE MAN" GO LONG FOR THE PASS! HIS SUZUKI SIDEKICK IS BUILT TO HANG WITH THE BOYS AND IF HE CAN KEEP HIMSELF UNDER CONTROL HE SHOULD BE ON TOP OF THE PODIUM!
Kyle from the "Tracker Farm" will be bringing the Bone Crusher buggy to see if a small block Chevy can compete with the all the LS buggys, will the old small block make enough power? No, Do those one off Rockstar beadlocks look good on that thing? Also No. Will Kyle drive it as hard as he can and place near the top? Maybe.
THIS TALL HANDSOME GRANOLA EATING HIPPY IS COMING OVER FROM THE LITTLE ISLAND OF SALTSPRING TO LOCK DOWN 2ND PLACE ONCE AGAIN. HE HAS BUILT A NEW REAR STEER CAR AFTER SELLING THE EVER SO RELIABLE "FENCE POST"
WATCH FOR ROHAN TO TAKE HIS SWEET TIME ON THE COURSE BUT SOME HOW LAND ON THE PODUIM.
Tyler Skopliak will be returning to the Island Cup once again. Bringing his really clean rear steer buggy. Powered by a big super charged 3.8L with a Legendary 4 speed Atlas. Watch out for the Skop Bros at Island Cup, One will be driving his ass off and well you can't miss the other one.
Techno bob has requested we only say nice things about him in his bio.......
FATHER CRAIG HAS BEEN WHEELING SINCE WE WERE ALL IN DIAPERS, PRETTY SURE HE HAS EVEN CHANGED A COUPLE SHITTY DIAPERS ON THE TRAIL! IF YOU EVER NEED A "TUG" ON THE TRAIL THIS GUY WILL HELP.

JONNY 5 WAS ONCE A MAIN LANDER BUT HAS ESCAPED THE SMOG AND MOVED TO THE ISLAND TO BUILD SWEET VAN CONVERSION'S. HE HAS ONE ISLAND CUP WIN UNDER HIS BELT, WHEN HE HAD HIS LS 4 WHEEL STEER BUGGY. THIS YEAR HE IS BRINGING HIS NEON TRANS-AXLE BUGGY ON TOYOTA DIFFS, IF HIS AXLES UP HOLD HE IS VERY TOUGH TO BEAT. CAN HE PUT UP WITH 3 DAYS OF "BLACK FLAG" SHIT AND GET ON TOP OF THE PODIUM?
One of the coolest guys around Jon is always ready to party. This year Jon will be jumping up to the rear steer class with 43 sx's strapped onto this low rider he will be gunning for the top spot.
This buggy won the island cup in 2016 with a different driver. Mike has had it for a few years now and has done a good job proving that learning to drive on a rear steer buggy while being in your 50s is not an easy task. This guy could have 30 of the most experienced spotters and he still wont listen to any of them. Mike simply needs to lay off the herbal remedies and pay attention to his spotter and maybe he won't roll over.
