Total Chaos Fabrication finish 5th at the Mint 400 - TOTAL CHAOS Fabrication's Lil T Finishes 5th in 7200 Pro Class at the 2017 Mint 400. The custom Toyota Tacoma built on a stock chassis, running original doors and a 4.0L V6 engine, showed the unlimited field what a durable truck and a plan can do. March 7, 2017 (Corona, CA) - As the dust settled and the time ticked down, Team TOTAL CHAOS Fabrication charged the Nevada desert and crossed the finish line in 5th place in class at the 2017 Mint 400. Underpowered in the world of 7200 trucks and running in the Unlimited race, with 7 DNF’d vehicles in the class, Nicole Pitell-Vaughan drove every last race mile and brought the Toyota Tacoma across the finish line virtually unscathed. It was an overcast and windy day at this year’s Mint 400.
Dakar Rally 2017: 13th title for Mr. Dakar - The basis for his 2017 win came largely in Thursday's Chilecito-San Juan stage, emerging with a lead of six minutes over Loeb after being given time back following his incident with biker Simon Marcic. A spirited challenge from Loeb during Friday's San Juan-Rio Cuarto run was for naught, and although the nine-time WRC champion won the final stage - his fifth of the event - it was only by 19 seconds. It meant Peterhansel had a final winning margin of 5m13s over Loeb.
Rally d’Algerie 2016 - The Rallye d'Algérie 2016 has just finished recently.

Organised by ARAK Sport and Fasm (Fédération Algérienne des Sports Mécaniques), to win the competition, it was necessary to enjoy the land as on the old-school races through African deserts.

Rebelle Rally – Lake Tahoe (US) - America's first all-female navigation rally has come to a close, with ups-and-downs, triumphs and challenges; great days and bad days—the dust has settled and the results are in. Finishing in the Glamis Sand Dunes, with few distinguishable landmarks and difficult terrain to traverse, you could easily call this the most technical day of the Rebelle Rally. Few, if any, competitors didn't get stuck in the steep, unpredictable sand dunes. But that didn't stop every. single. Rebelle. from finishing the landmark event. We're proud of everyone and the challenges they've overcome to get to the finish line, but we'd especially like to congratulate Charlene Bower and Kaleigh Hotchkiss who have won the first-ever Rebelle Rally and Meli Barrett and Sabrina Howells who won in X-Over class.
Rebelle Rally 2016, French girls in the USA! - New adventures! This is what Chris and Hélène were looking for when they decided to be part of the first Rebelle Rally 2016.

Teams of two women (driver/navigator) will spend seven days driving mostly off-road from Lake Tahoe to the sand dunes of Southern California. Best of all, you get to leave your cell phone, computer, GPS, & headaches behind. It’s all about YOU. And your endless abilities.
King of the Hammers 2016 by P. Baraldi - Johnson Valley in California hosted the 10th King of the Hammers. It is one of the most followed off races of our planet. King of the Hammers is also a part of a list of 10 toughest off road competitions ever. King of the Hammers 2016 was a very special edition - it marks the return of Dave Cole, after winning his battle against cancer. This edition was the 10th King of the Hammers. Only a decade has passed since the first edition of the race where no more than 13 crews competed against each other. The fame of KOH is something special and very rare!
