Famous for its off road scene, Italy hosts a number of races. Warn Trophy Italy, King of Italy, Rainforest Challenge selections, Croatia Trophy selections, many smaller races, meetings and of course – the Xtreme Trophy Challenge. It’s a championship consisted of five races held throughout the year. And the organization recently announced the Xtreme Trophy Challenge Italy 2016 schedule!
1. Xtreme Trophy Challenge 2016 – XTC Collazzone (March 19 – 20)
Organization of XTC Collazzone prepared more than 80% of new tracks last year. They offered various terrain and a number of obstacles. XTC Collazzone edition is not an easy race, drivers and navigators are forced to do their best (and more than that).
Heat and physical exhaustion was a problem too. Nicola Bianchi alerted the teams during the briefing. Water and fresh fruit was available to combat dehydration.
2. Xtreme Trophy Challenge 2016 – XTC Attimis (April 16 – 17)
Attimis is a home of one of the most significant off road sites in Italy. A variety of obstacles is present in this old clay mine. Stages are changed each year, the place is huge.
It is one of the best races in the XTC Italy calendar. This will be the second race of the XTC 2016 and the weekend is promising.
3. Xtreme Trophy Challenge 2016 – XTC Castro dei Volsci (May 28 – 29)
As each stage of XTC Italy, Castro dei Volsci has its own beauties. This race is held on two terrains completely different from each other. Castro dei Volsci, in Ciociaria in the province of Frosinone, superbly hosted the third round of the Italian XTC 2015 Championship. Exciting and adrenaline-filled race made the crews and spectators very happy…
4. Xtreme Trophy Challenge 2016 – XTC Colle San Bartolomeo (July 16 -17)
Colle San Bartolomeo is known for demanding driving techniques needed to finish the race. If you want to win, you have to deserve it. Lower your guard once and it is over.
Colle San Bartolomeo is not a “pedal to the metal” stage, it’s all about extreme flex and rollovers. This will be the 4th stage of XTC Italy 2016.
5. Xtreme Trophy Challenge 2016 – XTC Amandola (September 3 – 4)
Last year’s race was an interesting one. Rain changed the terrain after first day of racing. It was a stage full of adrenaline. Five special tests were held in thick forests filled with mud and water.
The terrain in Amandola is awesome. It’s like a small jungle. Definately a stage worthy of visiting.
