Romania, an amazing land full of off roading possibilities. Some of the best off road competitions and adventures are held on the grounds of “Count Dracula” country. And is there anything more you could ask for? No! Romania’s nature is rich and beautiful, people are open and friendly. A perfect place to enjoy one more off road event – the SuperKarpata Trophy 2016!
Here’s how one of the teams from SuperKarpata 2015 described their adventure: “We had to repair several times, we experienced a rollover and got lost many times. But on competitions like this one, team spirit is always strong. We are now at the end, this was our goal. The weather was brilliant, we had lots of fun. I hope we’ll come back next year.”
SuperKarpata Trophy 2016 starts on April 29th, the finish will take place on May 8th.
- April 29th – Registrations and kick off party, campfire etc.
- April 30th – Show start in the Hell Gorge
- 1st to 3rd of May – First stage of the race
- 4th to 7th of May – Second stage of the race, finish and closing party
The SuperKarpata is one of those special events. You don’t need a roadbook and you don’t drive alone. Each team receives a map and finds its own way to the finish.
It is a competition for teams of 2 or 3 off-road vehicles up to 3500 kg gross weight.
You get a map and you find your own route to the finish which is about 1000 km away from the start line. The route areas are often wooded, hilly, inhabited partly mountainous and muddy. Each team is monitored by a “blackbox” installed on each competing car.
It’s one hell of an adventure if you ask me. And there are still some places left on the registration list. Visit the SuperKarpata Trophy 2016 website and fill in the registration form. You’ll have a nice story to share!
