What is the magic recipe for a good race? Decent organization, experience, beautiful terrain and friendship. At least we like to think so. A perfect one-week off-road adventure in the Transylvanian mountains.

After 20 years of off road racing and event-organizing experience, we have 4-th edition of the new Transsylvania Trophy.

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.

You’ll have one day for inscription and 6 days of roadbook racing. Average racing time is of 4 hours/day, although the maximum time will be longer (usually 8 hours). So you’ll have more than enough time to fix your vehicles on the rocks and in the mud or in the deep forests of Romania… And still finish the roadbook (hopefully) in time.
