The event takes place 50 km from Cluj-Napoca. The race tracks go from 500 to 1700m. http://www.pensiuneasequoia.ro
In EXTREME and CROSSOVER you do NOT need any map on the GPS-device! It is actually BETTER NOT to have any map on the GPS to better see the track given by us! Our track will be black, yours should be recorded in red. You see them best on an empty white screen. So: do NOT buy any Garmin Romania map. They cost money and they will disturb you. Attention: each pilot in EXTREME and CROSSOVER needs at least 1 Garmin GPS. Begin to train GPS use NOW! Make your friend register a track (on foot, bike, car,..), then try to follow the track as fast as you can. You should know your GPS device like your pocket BEFORE you come to the event.
In ADVENTURE you need a free GPS-applications on your smart phones.

To be decided…

HUNT-THE-WOLF is and was always innovative. This means every year there was changes to make it even more interesting, also for racers attending the event before. At the beginning we had a night race, very challenging!, then the first very spectacular trials in town in front of the biggest shopping mall of Transylvania, then the first mass starts on ATV-races, then we increased the event from two to now 5,5 days, then we had the first international riders (now the majority), ecc. The only thing which never changed and will never change is the 100% very very very difficult off-road terrain in the Class EXTREME. Until the event will exist every racers who thinks to be a great ATV-rider should first prove himself in our class EXTREME J
Yes, most racers return. Some participated already 9 times. And many of them are all year long looking forward to the start of the event. It is a year long excitement!
Let’s say half, sometimes more, sometimes less. On our site www.hunt-the-wolf.com in history everybody can see the participants over the years and also the results.
Well, yes. Every ATV race is dangerous. EXTREME is particularly dangerous, and CROSSOVER is NOT for beginners as well. But: average speed in EXTREME is 17 km/h! This is little. Racing days are 4-8 h long. But when you see the difference in speed of EXTREME and the other riders, on the trails in the forest, you go nuts!
Oliver is doing all tracks. He is the ONLY one who knows the tracks! The final combination of all tracks is kept very secret. Oliver pushes the limits. The policy is: whatever he feels as being totally at the limit, he does NOT introduce in the track. But spots just a very thinny bit below this total limit are part of tracks – in EXTREME. Also he does all tracks without any help in passing obstacles! In good weather conditions all tracks can be driven alone and so far without the use of a winch. But you must be gooood, have a good ATV and the weather must be ok! Otherwise winching will be needed. Most tracks one time are also done with a CFmoto 800 ATV. This to make sure, that also extreme-racing on less expansive brands is possible! When cleaning, checking and opening tracks Oliver is accompanied by friends. Those friends are also racers sometimes. But none of them gets to know all tracks, none of them gets to know the final combination of tracks. All coming racers have equal chances to win!
In April weather goes crazy sometimes. We had 25 degrees Celsius and 10cm of snow. Be prepared for al
The is always changes in HTW. Be surprised.
Of course, a full team of rescue people is available: doctors from the hospital, mountain rescue, mechanical rescue, ecc. But whoever calls the organizers for rescue is disqualified for that day. Helicopters are available, but not always as quick as in Western Europe.
Yes, every year we organize 2 to 5 mechanics who will work 24h/day to fix racers broken ATVs – for a modest payment. But if you want to make sure to be helped ON the track without being disqualified or after finish without waiting: better bring your own mechanic. And for sure we do not have all parts you might need in stock. Better bring your own. During the race mechanical help is permitted, but not help to get over obstacles. Just racers can help racers on the track besides the mechanics for technical issues only.
We get up to 20 nations in this event. In 2017 the Swedish were in the majority with over 30 racers.
