And look what we have today. The origin of Canejan 4×4 trial in Spain started the same way. It was just a “lets have fun” idea and it grove to be one of the most extreme off road trials of the Pyrenees.
The village of Canejan in Spain will once again host the Canejan 4×4 race. After the huge success and a major number of participants, a club was set up in 2014.
