EVENT: Copa Tomate Patagonia
DATE: 01 March 2014
COUNTRY: Argentina

Patagonia Tomato Cup is a Rally Cross competition that unites professionals, amateurs and family in general that wants to try a new route in Río Negro.

Challenging as few, the circuit has a 60% fast flat,  20% flat middle locked and 20% sand fences, characteristic for the landscape of Choele Choel. With two short but very tough climbs, the downhills are very technical where you can’t not respect them. Multiple paths locked medium to high complexity ditches loose stone and sand; complement the plain path downwind where it goes very fast. Multiple trails interlocked medium to high complexity with loose stone and sand ditches; complement the plain path where with the wind in favour you go very fast.

The arrival at Río Negro to later enjoy the journey through the forest where there are places where the sun does not enter, make the circuit a unique experience.
