Half-English and Turkish Cypriot, Mr Çelebioğlu was a well-known and highly regarded former offroad champion who was killed when a vehicle travelling on the other side of the Girne-Lefkoşa road went out of control, crossed the central reservation and smashed into his vehicle.

The tournament was held on the Alagadi-Alevkayası road and saw 29 teams racing on a 10km track.

One category saw “offroaders” competing in a hill-climb category while bikers raced in the Enduro Class.

The tribute tournament ATV category was won by Sona Singh and the Motorbike category by Hasan Çeto. UTV category victory went to the duo of Ahmet Kofalı and Buğur Kambillili and the Automobile category was won by the pairing of Niyazi Bedel and Hasan Güney.
