Portuguese Caminha in province of Viana do Castelo will host the third round of the European Xtreme Challenge 2016. Xtrem Challenge Portugal has a long tradition in Viana do Castelo but this will be the first time to host a round of Europe Xtrem Championship organized by the French “Equipe France Classique”.
After a wet race in Wales and a muddy round of EXC in Attimis, this will be the 3rd round of the championship and the odds are it will be a sunny race. Luckily, that doesn’t matter in Portugal, since the rocks in Viana do Castelo are massive.
The event will start on June 16 with technical inspections, racing will start on 17th and finish on 19th of June. Portuguese 4×4 club led by Miguel Nieva prepared an amazing 4 day event.
On rocky paths around this beautiful town some of the most popular European crews (not only from every corner of Portugal but also from France, Spain, England and the Basque Country) will be challenged.
“To make it even more interesting this edition of the championship decided to reward the winners with 4×4 equipment and a partial refund of the participation cost” – explains satisfied President Santi Sturniolo. “It is another way to appreciate this exciting adventurous sport that is enjoying a great success in whole of Europe.”
