WATCH: Winch Truck snaps winch rope

We've got 20 minutes of Winch Truck Action from the GQ Patrol of the Father and Son team of Peter and Jayden Jilg. There's plenty of on-board action from all three stages on Friday afternoon and evening, as well as the three Saturday stages they completed.

On the second Saturday stage they were the first to have issues, breaking a winch rope whilst trying to winch up a rather tricky rock ledge. The GQ Patrol sat precariously on the edge of the rocks while Jayden tried to sort out the winch rope. But it was more than just the rope, the winch itself was making some horrible noises and with time running out, they were forced to call time and withdraw from the stage.

They needed assistance from another truck to lower them to the bottom of the winch wall and when they returned to the Service Area, they discovered their winch was fried! They got a few spare parts from one of the other teams, but the parts wouldn't fit. With no way of fixing the broken winch components, they were out of the winching action.

With one more speed stage left in the Comeup Xtreme Winch Challenge, they were still able to complete the speed course and score some points for Saturday Afternoon.
