A beautiful weekend in a beautiful Eastern European country of Ukraine. Organized by the local SLIVA4x4 club, this leg of RFC Global Series was a great success. A number of teams participated in the race, a great weekend happened in the far east of Ukraine, a few kilometers away from the city of Kharkiv.
First edition of the RFC Global Series Ukraine 2016 was a home for lots of spectators and 24 teams racing for victory, divided into four categories – UTV, ATV, standard 4×4 and Prepared / Proto class.
It was a very intense weekend for the competitors, special tests started on Saturday at 9AM. Kilometers of winching and hard work to eventually reach the night stage, famous Twilight Zone. Out of 24 competitors, 21 entered the Twilight Zone ready to give their best… They had to do it. And they did it!
Sunday morning was the start of the last day of racing, teams were tired but determined to finish the race. If there’s a race in the RFC Gloabl Series calendar that resembles the Malaysian RFC mother event, this definately is the one.
It was an event full of real crude off road racing. A weekend to remember and definately mark it in the 2017 calendar!
