The Italian answer to Hunt the Wolf is called RACE to HELL and was carried out for the second time in Tuscany in the area of the Rapolano Therme.
Equipped with GPS trackers by raceadmin.eu, 68 drivers from 9 nations faced this challenge with their ATV and SxS.
In the 3 days a total of 285 km had to be conquered by the ATV and SxS riders, whereby the idyll of the hiking trails through olive groves was quickly forgotten as soon as it went into the gorges, canyons and stream beds. Steep ascents and descents and narrow canyons filled with stones and rubble demanded everything from man and machine. In the evening and during the night there was screwing and hammering at every corner in the paddock.
Congratulations to everyone who struggled through. The cohesion of the drivers across all nations was particularly pleasing after some of the technology was no longer 100% available and several passages could no longer be negotiated without the help of fellow campaigners.
After three days in the hell of Tuscany, the victory of the ATV class went to France to GAETAN MARTINEZ. The Italian team won the SxS class: WAINER MORANDI and DAVIDE MAGNI
Material and people were battered but laughed together and helped each other the only ones who fadized themselves were the paramedics and rescue workers on site – not a single operation !!
A great event in an impressive backdrop of Tuscany and in 2020 with excellent weather conditions.
The physical well-being was also taken care of with typical Italian antipasti, lasange, tiramisu and delicious wines as well as different types of beer.
Jay Parts not only sponsored Hell to Race with prizes for the first three places in the ATV and SxS class, but was also there to provide advice and assistance, parts and support. While the drivers tormented their machines through the terrain, Uschi and Jay spared no effort to somehow (sometimes even on all fours) get to one of the hotspots and give a small impression of the event with many pictures and videos.
