The 4th leg of the Italian XTC 2016 championship was held on 16th and 17th of July. A decent number of 24 crews showed their enthusiasm and love for the off road sport. A classic summer weekend, sunshine, clear skies and a pleasant breeze… A great setting for the fourth and penultimate round of the Italian Xtreme Trophy Challenge championship of 2016.
The XTC race on the extreme course in Colle San Bartolomeo (Imperia) was also a part of the Europe Xtreme Challenge, a great championship consisted of a number of amazing races held throughout the old continent.
After scrutineering and the first Saturday briefing, crews immediately entered into the heart of the competition with 24 teams in the race; 6 in the Sueprserie class and 9 crews in the Prepared and Special class respectively. Everyone happy and ready to dance between the rock and dangerous slopes. We have to mention the presence of three French crews that came a long way to compete for the EXC championship.
Perfectly planned by Silvano Squartecchia, a bunch of special tests included all the characteristics of natural real extreme off road.
