Important info

What is the magic recipe for a good race? Decent organization, experience, beautiful terrain and friendship. At least we like to think so. And we have all four just waiting for you to enjoy the race held in Romania. Starting on June 9th, this will be a perfect seven day adventure in the homeland of the world’s most famous vampire.

After 16 years of off road racing and organization experience, we have the ultimate event that will bring back the glory of the legendary Transsylvania Trophy.

So what do we offer…? Electricity, water, showers and toilets will be provided. Barbeque lovers will have the chance to enjoy local dishes, beer drinkers will have ample supplies and your non-competing companions will have a huge mountain area to be covered by foot or bicycle on marked tracks.

Each roadbook has an estimated time of 5 hours (average), although the maximum time allowed to finish the roadbook will be longer. So you’ll have more than enough time to fix your vehicles on the rocks and in the mud located in the deep forests of Romania… And still finish the roadbook (hopefully) in time.
