Cannonball, like the legendary race against time, to find the obligatory waypoints; 4×4 because the competition field can only be used by vehicles equipped with 4-wheel drive; extreme because the obstacles to overcome require the use of a winch and driving technique to be able to advance on the track.

4x4s, ssv and prototypes are allowed , all under 3.5t and equipped with a winch and the equipment required by the regulations.

Starting stage, podium for awards and dedicated assistance spaces for various teams will be inside the base camp which is active for all 4 days with a kiosk for lunch and dinner breaks.


On the morning of Thursday 23 May, administrative and technical checks of crews and vehicles will be held at the base camp.

The opening ceremony will take place in the afternoon, followed by the drawing of the starting numbers for the prologue with special tests to be completed within a set maximum time and which will determine the starting order of the first day of competition.

Friday 24 May will enter the highlight of the event with orientation tests (WP) and special tests (SS) from 09:00 to 17:00, with a lunch break. A night test is scheduled at 9.00 pm to conclude the day of competition.

Same program on Saturday 25 May, but without night rehearsal… celebrations at the kiosk.

On Sunday 26 May the event will see special tests in the morning and the closing ceremony with awards in the afternoon

In the orientation tests (WP) each crew will have a maximum time available to acquire all the waypoints and complete the special stages. The acquisition of the WPs will be validated by the photos taken by each crew and downloaded upon returning to the race direction.

In timed trials (SS) each crew will have a maximum time available to complete the trial.

The crew that has identified the most WPs, within the established time, or that has taken the least time to identify all the WPs, will be the winner of the test.
