HA NOI  (VNS) — At least 35 local and foreign clubs are taking part in the 2014 Rainforest Challenge (RFC) Viet Nam, the biggest off-road motor race in the country.

The event kicks off on August 24-30 at the Tuan Chau Resort, Ha Long City in the northern Quang Ninh Province.

Competing foreign clubs will be coming from Canada, Malaysia, South Korea, Thailand and Laos.

The race includes a variety of challenges such as mudding, rock crawling and green laning. In one of the tests, drivers will also be required to race through a natural forest.
