About Off Road Racing

What is Off Road Racing?

Off Road Racing encompasses a motorsport racing format where diverse classes of specially modified vehicles, such as buggies, SxS (Side-by-Sides), trucks and modified cars, participate in timed events across challenging off-road terrains.

These vehicles are equipped with long-travel suspension systems, powerful engines, and specialised features enabling them to navigate rugged, dusty, and occasionally muddy terrains with speed and agility.
