Nice find and IMHO a very good test for Ineos to put the Grenadier through. I applaud them (and Mercedes) to do this publicly. It’s a brutal route and probably a the best real world Overland test for the vehicle. I do hope they share the outcomes both bouquets and brickbats on what worked and what failed. 
On the G Wagens the main thing that failed was the shocks and only in the 463s. Understandable since they were running on 20s if my memory serves me right. The military spec 461 was running on 16s. I am betting the Grenadier should traverse it fine given it’s 17” wheels and softer suspension.

The only thing stopping this is the threat of border/track closures due to covid in West Australia.Whatever , there are plenty of tough tracks in Australia.Props to Ineos for stating intent. I like people who commit to tough tasks.

I hope this brings more attention to this vehicle.  It needs more coverage.

I think they plan to do the rubicon trail too.

So does anyone know if they made it onto the track; or indeed are going to in the future?

I'm just watching the 1st of Andrew St Pierre White's videos of his old Range Rover attempting the route.

You wouldn't expect them to do it in the 1st edition prototype that's been doing the rounds ; at present there are no more cars in Australia. But I'm sure they will be up for the challenge in due course.

I was.

It's in the article:

"Dirk Heilmann, CEO of Ineos Automotive, wrote in an Instagram post: “We have a [Grenadier] prototype down in Australia and will tackle the Canning Stock Route with a final series prototype around May/June this year.”"

Well they don't yet have a final series prototype in Australia!
Nothing wrong with making a bold statement. The world rests on the shoulders of enthusiasts :)
