King of RIOT 4×4 Challenge Is Back For More Off-road Mayhem

The King of RIOT 4×4 Challenge is on once again!

Now on its second year, King of RIOT (KOR) 2022, a multi-stage 4×4 competition made up of technical stages designed to test each competitors’ driving skills, will take extreme 4×4 racing to the next level with the introduction of more challenging obstacles, including longer and harder recovery segments. Aside from the competition, KOR 2022 will also feature a 4×4 and overlanding festival that will once again gather enthusiasts, manufacturers, and retailers alike to discuss and appreciate anything and everything four-wheeling.

Happening from November 16 to 20, 2022 at the Rizal International Off-road Track (RIOT) inside the CVM Orchard and Eco-Park in Baras, Rizal, competitors may choose to compete in either of two categories – the Extreme Open Pro (Prototype) and Modified Open Class (Modified). The Prototype champion will receive P200,000 and the King of RIOT title; the winner of the Modified category will receive P100,000 and the RIOT Warrior title.

Last year’s event saw over 50 racers from all over the country compete in front of thousands of spectators. This year, according to former Mayor and Event Chairman, Rogelio Siquian, Jr. the event is expected to bring together a bigger competition pool, with at least 80 Prototype and Modified competitors from all over the country, expected to join.

Last year’s King of RIOT Edison Dungca and RIOT Warrior Noel Bartolome, Jr. have already declared their intention to compete. Will they be able to replicate their performance last year? With the growing interest in 4×4 racing, both champions have to dig deep, literally, if they hope to retain their crowns.

King of RIOT 2022 is made possible with the support of the following title sponsors: AMP, Dirty Life, Journey Tires, TJM, and Warn along with venue partner CVM Orchard and Eco-Park.

Interested? Early registration begins on October 1 and ends on November 16, 2022. Don’t be left behind!
