Los Angeles, CA - Thrill-seekers wanting to experience the adrenaline rush of riding in a powerful four-wheel drive vehicle at high speeds, flying through the air, and climbing rock formations, will soon get the chance in a safe, supervised area known as Petersen's 4-WHEEL & OFF-ROAD Ranch.

EMAP Petersen, publisher of 4-WHEEL & OFF-ROAD Magazine and other noted 4x4 publications, has formed a strategic relationship with Extreme Four-Wheel Drive of America, Inc., to create a series of one-of-a-kind, mutli-acre adventure parks devoted to the thrills and safety of off-road driving.

"Petersen's expertise in the explosive 4x4 market provides a natural tie with the vision that Extreme Four-Wheel Drive of America has for the Ranch facilities," comments Justin McCormack, President of Petersen Enterprises, the licensing and branding division of EMAP Petersen. "Our overall goals for the centers are the same - we want them to be the newest, most exciting, safest, and environmentally friendly off-road parks anywhere in the world."

Petersen's 4-WHEEL & OFF-ROAD Ranch will be a complete, state-of-the-art, off-road model center that will provide experience, education, and entertainment to the general public and off-road enthusiasts. Detailed information about locations and facility offerings will be released within a few weeks and as it becomes available.

"Petersen is a powerhouse within the off-road industry and a strong marketing solutions company," says Christopher Ross, Founder and Chairman of the Board of Extreme Four-Wheel Drive of America, Inc. "By joining forces, we are securing the success of the Ranch by utilizing Petersen's knowledge in 4x4s and expanding our reach to an international audience of four-wheel enthusiasts."
