|Arctic 4×4 Experience: New Amateur Experience Rally in Scandinavia 2011.|
5.000 Kilometers through the snow and forests of Sweden, Norway and Finland: This is the new "Arctic 4×4 Experience" from February 12th until 20th 2011. The rally-experience takes you through a landscape that can be both beautiful and threatening, where the weather can change very quickly and the northern lights can be seen under the stars. Simply an adventure rally and a challenge for everyone who likes cars and adventures.
The event is not a closed road race, it’s mostly held on public roads but there is some offroad stages along the route. The route takes you through the forests in Sweden, up in the Norwegian Arctic wide open spaces and down through the "Land of the Thousand Lakes" Finland. Both start and finish line will be in Stockholm, the Capital of Sweden. The rally is not about speed, it’s a competition valuing driving skills, endurance and navigational skills.
Every day during the rally you will get a race sheet with geo challenges of the day. Everyone you complete gives you points. Also some other tasks can occur during the competition. That team who have most points at the end of the competition will win. You can read more about the competition rules here.
To be able to accomplish every part of the rally you´ll need a 4WD car. Of course can you still participate with a 2WD car but then you maybe have to skip some parts with offroad driving.
Space is limited, so the organizers asked for early bookings. For more informations please visit the official website at [ www.arctic4x4experience.com ].
