PHILON PARPOTTAS (UK)

I have competed in many Races over the years mainly extreme trophy style events and winch challenges in the early days. Transylvania Trophy 3 times, Croatia Trophy 5 times, Rallye Breslau Poland 4 times Also raced Ultra4 Europe since it started in 2012, competing in almost all the races in UK and Europe. UK, Portugal, France, Poland and Spain.

I am new to Rally Raid and Comp Safari racing only starting in 2018 with my CanAm, but thoroughly enjoying it. I did several rounds of Comp Safari in the UK after buying and preparing the CanAm, and did my first big Rally Raid race last year in September in Bulgaria, the Balkans Off Road Rallye and I am now addicted to this type of Racing. 8 days racing across from one end of Bulgaria to the other, covering 2700km, and just missing out on a podium finish. I couldn’t wait to go out and race again, so in February we raced the Fursten Forest Rallye in Germany, where we won the UTV class and 3rd overall.

Due to this we won a FREE entry to the Amazing Kalahari Rally in South Africa which is on 5th- 12th of October. I am expecting this to be very tough racing with the rocky and sandy desert terrain of the Kalahari, covering some 3000km over 7 days. In September we are also Racing the Balkans Rallye again, and are now preparing for both huge races and counting down the days.

SEE YOU SOON AT KR19!
