This summer, you can enjoy in many off-road events in the USA! Although we are situated in the UK, it is not a bad idea to mention several events you should not miss, if you find yourself in the USA this summer! All of these accept both experienced and rookie drivers, so your skills are not the entry requirements but we recommend you to attend if you have some decent amount of mud-driving skills! The only entry requirement you should meet is that you are 18 years old at least, which you are probably as you are reading this article! Just make sure you find out enough information about the tracks and terrains!
If there is one place that you should visit just because of the off-roading in the USA, then it is the state of South Dakota. It lays on the Northern part of the US, right next to Minessota and Montana, and it offers colorful landscapes that are full of ponds and rivers that you can cross with your ATV or any type of off-road vehicle. One of the most interesting parts of this event is going through the Black Hills, which has more than 600 miles of tracks, which are just made for the driving enthusiasts. Prepare for the jumbo driving as the terrain can be tough from time to time. We recommend this event for drivers who have some experience in off-roading! However, the novice drivers can also participate as they have shorter and less-requiring tracks!

It will start on 5th August this year and we would like to give you some basic information about the event!
The start will be scheduled for the 12PM, at Lyndhurst where the initial gathering takes place and it is recommended to show up at least an hour before the start. The race will start at our base camp at the Lyndhurst, where we will gather all the racers and perform the inspections of the vehicles in case you do not use any of ours. Once the inspection is complete, the race should start at 12PM. Before the race, we will have the gathering and getting to know the session, where we want to meet every racer and talk to. We also offer the free maps of the terrain so you could give it a quick glance and see what you can expect. Once everything is ready and set up, the race will start.
You will not need any GPS system as the route will be marked with the markers, so just pay attention to these. You will drive from Lyndhurst over Cadnam and Brook, all the way to the Hamptworth and then you circle around and go all the way down to Sway. The overall length of this route is a little bit over 21 miles and it will take an hour and 10 minutes to complete the track. There will be a lot of standing shops along the route where you can stop and take a drink. Though the overall length is not so long, the goal is to enable rookie drivers to get familiar with the terrain, vehicles and overall rules, before exploring more! All the tracks will be marked so you do not get lost, so you do not need to worry about getting to the destination! Your job is to stay on the marked off-road and enjoy the ride!
All the drivers are required to sign in once they finish the race and get to Sway! This is a bit of a security measure just to make sure everyone managed to get to the destination and have a good time! Here, at Sway, we will have a camp with the food and refreshments so you could rest a bit. We want to hang out with all the drivers and members to hear their experience and overall rating! The final part is going from Sway to Lyndhurst just to return the vehicles, or to get to the main exit before leaving this fantastic adventure!
