Bulgaria, 15.09.2018 – 22.09.2018
A RALLY-ADVENTURE RAID FOR STANDARD OFFROAD VEHICLES
The Balkan Discovery is an offroad challenge allowing you to follow the Balkan Offroad Rally on real rally tracks in the footsteps of the rally-pilots – but without driving against the clock, even suitable for less-experienced drivers and without the need of a rally-car.
Teams from all over Europe came to Borovets for the start of the event, for the competition in perhaps the most beautiful and diverse scenery of Europe!
Balkan Discovery 2018 was held in September in Bulgaria – from the mountains to the sea in eight beautiful days. The Bulgarian landscape is an incredible backdrop for racing, with fantastic panoramas, lush forests and an extensive network of dirt roads. The terrain changes as well, crossing hills, vineyards, valleys and forests until the participants finally reaches the beach of Shkorpilovtsi at the Black Sea, just south of Varna.
The hotel option, available in Balkan Discovery, combines the event with the holiday feeling. Hotels offeres affordable luxury, cosiness, excellent service and the direct contact with the nature.
Available classes: ATV, SSV and CARS
