Races in the World’ by Skoda Motorsport (2018). Today, RFC India is counted
amongst the top two RFC Global events out of the 45 editions held across 22

off-roading community. The off-road motorsport competition tests the
contestants’ driving and vehicle recovery skills, team spirit along with their
physical and mental strength under extreme off-road conditions.
