The biathlon combining sailing and off-road comes back with all-round news for the 3rd edition.


Offshore sailing on-board G34 one-design, opening to traditional 4x4 vehicles and a brand new setting are amongst the revolutions for spring 2019.


Amsterdam October 18 2018- After an extraordinary last edition, taken at the photo-finish by Swiss ocean sailor Andrea Rossi against the all-Russian team led by rally rider Anastasia Nifontova, Elements race evolves once again in the direction of pure adventure. The event changes setting to discover the southern Sardinian coast and to make of Marina di Capitana the new base from the 27th to the 30th of April 2019.


The wild landscape and southern Mediterranean waters are almost a prelude to the future destinations and hide the African coastline which sits a scarce 100Nm further.     


The successful 2 day sailing 2 day off-road formula is confirmed whilst major novelties come both in the vehicle park and in the distances raced.


The off-road stages navigated by road-book are now enriched by speed-regularity passages and will open to traditional 4x4 vehicles alongside the SSVs already seen in the previous editions.


“At Elements Race we are raising the bar year-in-year-out.” comments Rudy Briani, 7 times at the Dakar and responsible for the off-road stages, “In 2019 we will have hidden check-points, increase the speed rhythm and altogether be more attractive for those participants who already have rally and rally-raid experience”. 


The sailing element of the biathlon will also undergo significant changes giving up the coastal dimension of the J70s to welcome the fast G34 one-design boats of Cino Ricci designed by Jean-Marie Finot for the epic Giro d’Italia a Vela.


The coordination of the challenging 80Nm regatta running from Marina di Capitana round Isola Rossa and back will be entrusted to Cino’s son Franco Ricci with his Scuola Italia in Vela.


“The G34 is a technical boat made for high performance offshore racing” explains Franco Ricci “and our location in southern Sardinia offers options to sail in any meteorological condition”.


ELEMENTS RACE’s only prerequisite for participation is that out of the 4 team members, 2 are experienced sailors and 2 carry a driver’s license valid on Italian soil.


The general and final rankings are a sum of the daily points and will decide the Elements Race podium after 4 days of non-stop action.


The organisation of the event is in the hands of an experience-rich team of professionals from the worlds of sailing and off-road; together with the above mentioned DrivEvent of Rudy Briani and Scuola Italia in Vela, once again Caffè Veloce and CAPTEC renew their partnership as technical sponsors, and for this edition Dragonfly.


Elements Race is born from the idea of co-founders Guglielmo Fontana-Rava and Danil Kuzvesov professionals in the automotive industry and enthusiastic land and sea adventurers.


Until the 30th of November 2018 the aspiring participants can benefit from an early fee of 890 euros per person and on the official website www.elementsrace.com they can find all the information including the 4-day programme and the registration procedure.

Press Release | ALL SYSTEMS ARE GO FOR THE 2nd EDITION OF ELEMENTS RACE Tue, 23 May 2017 11:20:46 +0200 http://www.comunicati.net/comunicati/sport/varie/433814.html http://www.comunicati.net/comunicati/sport/varie/433814.html Elements Race Elements Race ALL SYSTEMS ARE GO FOR THE 2nd EDITION OF ELEMENTS RACE

From the 21st to the 24th of September Sardinia will newly host the Sailing-Rally Biathlon

The J70 monotype and Yamaha YXZ1000R ATV mark the most significant upgrades for the 2017 edition

Amsterdam The formula is confirmed: 2 days sailing and 2 days off-road in the stunning Maddalena archipelago and technical terrains of the Gallura inland. The participants will battle in longer distance coastal regattas and more intense land stages. The bar has been raised on the whole spectrum and this year sailing and off-road racing will be mixed throughout the 4 days in a sailing-offroad-sailing-offroad combination.


The main evolution for the 2017 edition is related to the boats and vehicles adopted. That is, the fastest growing state-of-the-art monotype for the sailing part, the J70, and a choice between three different ATVs, including the all new Yamaha YXZ1000R for the land stages.


The routes have also been significantly reviewed. In the water, the participants will race for 2 days for a total of 30Nm. The first race will start and finish in Porto Pollo after a morning training session.

Sailing day 2 will feature a different course from Porto Pollo all the way to Porto Cervo in the Costa Smeralda.

In the offroad field, the organisation has created 2 intense ability stages for a total of 330Km where the participants will have to navigate the Sardinian wilderness by roadbook and this year also by compass in order to follow the Bearing notes.


After a succesful 1st editionexplains Rudy Briani, 7 times at the Dakar and responsible for the off-road stagesthe newly mapped routes will be longer and significantly more challenging from a navigation standpoint. Some sections overlap WRC race routes; spectacular and adrenalinic” 


ELEMENTS RACE’s only prerequisite for participation is that out of the 4 member team, 2 are experienced sailors and 2 carry a driver’s license valid on Italian soil.


“Elements Race is a perfectly balanced format” declares Andrea Rossi, single handed sailor with the Mini 6.50, off road enthusiast and participant in the 2016 edition, “and in the future it must become more extreme and dedicated to those who have the experience to handle it. We will surely participate to the new edition with our 2016 team.”


The final ranking is a sum of the daily points and will decide the podium of Elements Race. The prizes for the overall winners are 4 stunning timepieces provided by Sponsor and Official Timekeeper Terra Cielo Mare.


Elements Race originates from the idea of co-founders Guglielmo Fontana-Rava and Danil Kuzvesov both professionals in the automotive industry, respectively for Yamaha Motor Europe and Ferrari SPA and enthusiast land and sea adventurers.


“We believe that sports, like other fields, need innovation and evolution” states Guglielmo Fontana-Rava “We want to take adventure competition to a new level by connecting sea racing and land racing into one unique challenge for multi-skilled teams.

We believe that Elements Race will give birth to a new breed of athletes and the world around them.”


“We offer a new and thrilling racing experience” concludes Danil Kuzvesov “that will push our participants to explore very diverse landscapes of northern Sardinia, the heart of the Mediterranean Sea. Elements Race targets both highly experienced athletes and eclectic adventure lovers with the aim of creating a specialised audience over the coming years.”


The organisation of the event is in the hands of an experience-rich team of professionals from the worlds of sailing and offroad: DrivEvent, Sardinia Escursioni, Thorney Motorsports, Sardegna Fuori Traccia, Orza Scuola Vela and Lega Vela Servizi.


Participants can register their team on www.elementsrace.com or send an email to the organisation at info@elementsrace.com to have more insights.
