A real NIIT WIt is someone who is “Not In It To Win It” and would rather just have a great time rallying than worrying about their score. The Original NIIT WIts, Paul Tong and Troy Martin, have had some success in the rally world, and some spectacular failures. In the end, they just want to provide LD Events focused on the riders’ enjoyment. We will send you to great places, down some great roads, and maybe even to do some pretty great tasks, but it will always be with the enjoyment of the rider in mind.

Paul being in Law Enforcement and Troy being in Business Analysis, and both being ex military, they did things their own way and developed processes that were totally new and provided a much faster, more detailed, more accurate, and better experience for their riders. They continue to strive to improve those processes and try new things to make sure their riders always have the very best experience possible.
We announced recently that there would be changes coming to the NIIT WIt group, and they are staring to happen. We have begun partnering with new rally masters, and the first one is Gary Huff who will master the North by Northwest Rally in September of 2020 in the pacific NW. It looks like its …
That’s right kids, the very first all male 2-up team to finish the IBR was made up of our very own NIIT WITs Paul Tong and Peter Green. Not only did they finish, but they finished as the top 2-up couple, and in 4th place overall. An outstanding showing for our NIITWIts. Other NIIT WIts …
