The first round of the XRAY Challenge was held on March 13-14 at Banwol Race Park near Seoul, Korea. The event was attended by 60 drivers. Since it was kind of the first Korea off-road race this year, not many drivers participated because of the cold weather; however, most of Korea’s top drivers participated, making the race very fun with great competition.
