4x4 competition - Transilvania Aventura 2015

Transylvania means "beyond the forest" and is aptly named!


Imagine being able to practice your favourite activity: Off-roading aboard your favourite vehicle, taking part in a super competition, all in the most beautiful woodlands of Eastern Europe. That's the Transilvania Aventura! The organisers have prepared road books that will allow you to drive, cross obstacles, use your winch and live out this great adventure. Come and join us on the 12th to the 17th of July!


The rules are clear: respecting the environment is paramount! The speed limit is 50km/h, all waste must be collected and participants must help those in need.

The aim is to complete the course taking care of your vehicle and the environment.

The special feature here is that the participants are working in teams of 2 vehicles.

The camp is in a small valley in the Zam region (60km from Deva).

Vehicles accepted are side by sides andquads. They must use the road book of the Adventure category.

TheExtremecategory is the most difficult, with a demanding course: water passages, quagmires, rocks to cross, steep climbs or descents, amazing! Good navigation will be fundamental, and winches will be put to the test!

The Adventure class is traditional off-roading and is not against the clock. The driving is more relaxed, but you still have to complete the road book in the day. The organizers have tested the course in an old Toyota BJ4 and a HDJ80 and it can be done!
