The idea for the Xtrem Sud Quest challenge came after a conversation between a group of friends passionate about extreme off roading. The Xtrem challenge started in the south west of France and quickly became a success. It’s part of the Xtrem French championship and attracts drivers of all nationalities. It’s an event not to be missed.
This Xtrem Challenge is one of the few French winch challenges, together with Ironman Challenge (2015 was the last edition), Mud’n’rocks (next November) and Xtremland (last weekend of June). This one takes place near Bordeaux, in a very nice wineyard region. Nice surroundings, nice atmosphere.
It gathered 20 teams from France, Andorra, Spain in very tough and tricky terrain, made of steep slopes and short turns. This year the organisers set up a challenge with five more zones that takes them. They can be driven in both directions and there was a starting trench.
Let the engines roar!
