Below is a highlight of how organizers explained that the TukTuk tournament works;
- No competitor will be given a certain fixed route but instead, everyone gets the whole island to choose whichever route they like.
- The key part of each person’s adventure is to try collecting the highest number of points in order to win.
- The tournament has exciting adventurous parts that involve safely traversing very high mountains, rough seas, and even thick jungles before reaching the final destination.
- To gain adequate points and make the event more fun-filled; each team will consist of 2 to 3 people that will collaborate in battling weather, traffic, roads, other competitors, and even local conditions like the occasional appearance of elephants. Sounds fun, isn’t it 😊?
