The Force Gurkha Rainforest Challenge (RFC) is back! Programmed on the lines of the famous RFC Malaysia, the event saw a successful debut last year. This year’s championship will be held at the same venue Goa from July 24 to July 31, 2015.
India’s only off-road motorsports event, RFC India will test the driving and vehicle recovery skills of the competitors under extreme off-road conditions. The concept is counted among the top ten toughest motor races in the world and countries like Italy, Russia, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Tunisia, China and Australia hold annual events to promote the sports.
