COURSE DESCRIPTION

The ‘SOFT Category’ of the off road training course developed by 100Tracks was designed for the learner to understand how a modified off road car works, how to overcome medium difficulty tracks as well as pushing personal limits during under pressure situations.

The purpose of this course is understanding the limits of a modified 4X4 car but also learning how to benefit from its maximum capacities. The theoretical part of the training also covers topics refering to orientating and navigating while crossing rough terrain. This favours your future relationship between navigation and a modified 4X4 vehicle.

Practical and theoretical elements of the course will be found in both off road competitions and during all kinds of trips on rough terrain. Already knowing this tips and tricks you will be more confident in overtaking personal limits during competitions or while discovering less circulated roads.

These courses are the result of a more than 20 years experience of our team gahtered in national and international competitions. They are optimised for both people who want to try heavy mountain roads using a modified 4X4 car and people who want to start competing.

The “SOFT Category” off road course has the following benefits:

• Using with efficiency a modified car endowements.
• Overcoming the driver’s limits while understanding the car’s maximum limits.
• Upgrading the level of knowledge concerning orientation and navigation.
• Easier approach of medium difficulty off road terrain.
