The town hall’s Department of Sports has organised a dune buggy exhibition of for Sunday 16th October so interested residents and visitors can try out this extreme sports. The initiative is a way to honour Javea driver Rui Cabaço and his co-pilot Juanjo Llidó, who were recently proclaimed champions with Team PGO Racing in the “buggy” class of the Panafrica Rally Raid, a test of navigation for motor vehicles through the desert of Morocco.

In fact, Cabaço and Llidó will be offering a chance for daring residents to experience what it might have been like to take part in this African adventure. A temporary racing circuit will be set up in Avenida Augusta (next to the Fontana Canal) on Sunday 16th October from 10:00am to 2:00pm and Juan Luis Cardona, the Councillor for Sports, has invited everyone to come along and take part in this experience. The dune buggy is a very special vehicle designed to drive on sand, with a lightweight chassis and four huge wheels. Now you can have a free test drive and co-pilot the winning PGO Bug Racer 500i for a few minutes.
Those interested have until next Wednesday 12th October to sign up for the experience by giving their name and DNI/NIE at the Palau d’Esports Xàbia in Avenida del Furs in the Port. Registration is FREE but the time restrictions limit the number of participants. The organisers have stressed that those who experience heart problems or difficulties with back or neck pain should not apply.
