As the title sponsor of the race, PVOIL has attached its brand and image to this race. PVOIL has participated more in race organization as well as created the best conditions to jointly organize OTV Communications Joint Stock Company and Otofun Forum to successfully organize racing events in recent years and in the coming years, Tu said.
Mr. Nguyen Tuan Tu, Deputy General Director of PVOIL speaks at the opening ceremony of PVOIL VOC 2023
The year 2022 marks the 15th anniversary of the PVOIL VOC race, which was successfully held for three days November 4-6, 2022. On that basis, PVOIL VOC 2023 continues to be held for three days October 27-29, 2023, promising to once again become a racing festival with tens of thousands of people directly attending. In order to maintain its position as the largest off-road car race of the year, the Organizing Committee has made important changes for this season.
First, the Vietnam Pickup class, which is for original pickup trucks launched in 2016, will no longer be held. Instead, the Organizing Committee announced a completely new class, Advanced Pickup. The participating pickup trucks will still be the ones sold on the market but will be upgraded more and face more difficult challenges. Besides, the remaining three divisions are Basic, Advanced SUV, and Extended.
Secondly, the Adventure night race track will also not be deployed at PVOIL VOC 2023. Instead, this year's competition tracks will be renewed by extending the competition distance and opening more competition routes in new areas. Road construction is calculated according to the formula of renewing about 30-40% of the roads each year to help maintain surprise in the tests.
According to the Racetrack Design and Construction Department, PVOIL VOC 2023 is expected to have 15 racetracks, the most ever. Of these, 14 tracks have been identified, including three completely new tracks, some of which have been redesigned. In particular, track number 14 will be surveyed and calculated to be reserved for the Advanced Pickup Class.
