Team Maxxis Takes Hat-Trick in the 21st Rainforest Challenge
The Rainforest Challenge is considered one of the top 10 toughest automotive challenges in the world. Team Maxxis 4×4 Malaysia won the championship title of Rainforest Challenge (RFC) 2017, the third time in consecutive years. The hat-trick is the first ever achieved in the history of the Rainforest Challenge.
RFC 2017 was held in Pahang from 23 Nov to 4 Dec 2017, with participants from over 36 nations, including Russia, Hong Kong/China, Equador, Colombia, Indonesia, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, the Philippines and India. The team went through the most challenging terrains in the natural rainforest of Pahang, starting at Balok on 25th November and ending at Sebarau on 5th December. Through monsoon, muddy madness and hardship, Team Maxxis 4×4 Malaysia (Vehicle 119) emerged as the champion.
Maxxis’ latest creation, the M9060 Mud Trepador, saw the team through mud and rocky rivers.
