Vietnam off-road racing cup revs up a storm
A delighted contestant gives the thumbs-up ahead of the starter pistol.
The 12th VOC, held during the weekend, features four categories: pickup, basic, advanced and expanded. On Saturday, a total 160 contestants were divided into 80 teams competing along 10 tracks.
Team 105 competes on amphibious track 1, requiring advanced vehicle handling skills due to overly slipper conditions.
Team 207’s co-driver stands helplessly by as his teammate fails to spring loose of a ditch along track 9.
VOC 2020 took place amid cool weather and mild sunshine. Organizers this year designed the course to appeal to drivers of differing skill sets.
Track 8, in the expanded category, required teams to navigate slopes, cross logs, and circle a tree atop a hill.
