In the heart of the green county of Carmarthenshire, the Caerfyrddin town (Welsh name of Carmarthen) has an amphitheater from the Roman era, a medieval castle and an old restored railway. Just outside the historic center of this picturesque corner of Wales, hills and woods of the Red Motor Valley welcome competitors. This place has become a reference for all off roaders.

“Creating hope using winch rope” is a motto of the Welsh Xtrem! And believe it or not, Saturday was all about that. Two super special sections with lots and lots of mud, slopes and all kind of forest obstacles. It was hard to follow the signs and choos the ideal route to finish the stage. Wll actually, thre was NO ideal route. Smith and Papworth showed excellent performance on Saturday and won the daily challenge.

Circuit race was held on the final day of the competition, once again, the Welsh mud was just unimaginable. Mud and slippery ground have indeed made the challenge even more demanding than expected. After the start, a steep uphill route demanded continuous winch maneuvers to overcome extreme steps. The Sunday podium awarded the best lap to Anderson/Pearce followed by Sharp/Turpie and Smith/Papworth.

The race was eventually won by Smith and Papworth who won a free participation for the Wild Boar Valley Challenge in October (Croatia).

The first leg of Europe Extreme Challenge promises a very exciting season, despite the extreme weather conditions, Jason Nobby Morgan and his staff did their best.
