On Tuesday September 15, almost 250 teams from at least 20 nationalities will start for the Rallye Breslau Poland. Five days, with roadbooks through the forests and across the fields and moorland - an adventure that has its roots in the previous century and has been in Poland for over 25 years. There is no summer without the Rallye Breslau in this region, and luckily this year is no exception. Jim Marsden won in the Extreme car category while Frank Stensky won in the Cross Country car category.
Today Herero 4x4 is the leader in the preparation of the legendary Defender. Herero 4x4 comes from the passion and expertise of Davide Arezio and Tatiana Besana. Founded in 2006, it is one of the most active and dynamic entrepreneurial realities in our sector that has been able to reinvent the world of preparations dedicated to Defender since the beginning of its history.
When it seemed like 2020 was a sabbatical year for Jim Marsden as he didn't have a racing car, fate reserved an unexpected opportunity for him. His old race car was for sale and he didn't miss the opportunity to bring it home. Like a "bad penny" that you always find in your hands even when you don't expect it, Jim Marsden has renewed its "new old" Defender to participate, dominate and win the BF Goodrich King of Britain.
After the lockdown it was nice for everyone to be able to race again. Ultra4 Europe in full safety and with a health plan studied with the government of Wales has accomplished the unthinkable: it successfully organized the first international competition in the Covid 19 period. Jim Marsden for the second consecutive year wins the BF Goodrich King of Britain with a perfect race. Allen Sharp wins in the new Winch Challenge class.
He prefers to stay behind the scenes, work with his team to make every Ultra4 Europe race possible and let the races speak for him. I'm talking about Richard Crossland, Managing Director of Ultra4 Europe. In this exclusive interview Richard talks about the Ultra4 world and his experience as an organizer.
Ultra4 Europe BF Goodrich King of Britain will be the first post lockdown race. Back to its original home for the second year in a row, King of Britain 2020 will be running a monster course around the terrain offered by Walters Arena. The race, without spectators for health reasons, will take place from 31 July to 2 August in Wales.

Europa Truck Trial is the longest-running European off-road championship. Since 1989, the year of the first race which took place in France in Steinbourg, these acrobats of small, large and huge trucks have crossed Europe with their adrenaline-pumping events. Driving skills, the precision of trajectories and the constant fight against gravity have always been the leitmotiv that have signed every edition of the Europa Truck Trial.
