A beautiful weekend organized by FLS 4×4 staff gathered old friends and fresh off road addicts to enjoy the Rainforest Challenge Global Series 2016 race. The RFC South Europe was held in Italy a week ago on a great location perfect for off road racing.
This amazing location was a great surprise for Luis Wee, famous director and creator of the Malaysian Rainforest Challenge mother event.
On 27th of May everything became clear, the prologue showed enough. It was obvious what a great event this will be on the following days and in the future.

On Saturday, teams entered into the forest. To conquer or not to conquer? The decision is simple, but are they all capable to overcome worst natural obstacles. Branches, mud, rocks and anything else you can imagine was on their way to victory.

To overcome as much as possible within a given time period was the goal of the competition. Due to that, the pressure was so thick you could cut it with a knife. It resulted in a few rollovers and many tricky situations.
