BEIJING, Oct. 5 (Xinhua) -- The 15th Alxa Festival, which was held in the Alxa League of north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region from October 1 to October 5, has attracted many off-road players, enthusiasts and tourists to enjoy the race.

The festival, founded in 2006, was co-hosted by local government and the Chinese club platform Fblife.com. As an annual large-scale off-road vehicle-themed desert culture event, it has become one of the most eye-catching off-road vehicle festivals in China.

Highlights of the festival include Team-3 (T3) series competition, all-terrain vehicle grand prix, rock climbing race, Mongolian wrestling championship, electronic music event, helicopter tour, carnival event and drone show.

The Team-3 series competition, which features the collaboration of three vehicles as a team and values the sports spirit of taking challenges, is one of the most important events of the festival and has delighted the audience with excitement.  

The players gave a full display of their wonderful driving skills, including climbing, diving, drifting and sprinting, to demonstrate "speed and passion" in the desert.

The chief designer of the creative products noted that "bravery" is the core value of the design. In the post-epidemic era, we need bravery, confidence and hope to achieve full recovery of normal life. 

The annual Alxa Festival has become one of the most driving forces for the Alxa League to forge itself into an international tourism destination. (Edited by Zhang Yuan with Xinhua Silk Road, zhangyuan11@xinhua.org)
