The event in Italy demonstrated to have a highlight logistic area, thanks to the headquarter inside the Pordenone Fair, the services’ quality and the capacity in communicating and promoting the event, exalting the qualities of a track, which although limited in extension is able to offer a fantastic variety of situations among fords and the Meduna, Cosa and Tagliamento riverbeds, including water and dirt tracks.
