hi, i am new to orc. I was wondering how a guy would go about getting into the desert race scene. i am interested in becoming a driver and building a truck or mayb even a rail/buggy. to do this, i am pretty sure you would have to go and get sponsors, but how do u go about that? and also, hwere do u get information about the races and events?any and all information is greatly appreciated.thanx
Racing takes $ and dedicatoin. Either win the lottery or get involved. Best way to start is get involved with a team. Learn everything you can, meet people, etc. Look around for a used truck / buggy and be one of the many 'little guys'. This is how I started - now I have a truck, am building an other, am involved with several teams. Nice thing about desert racing is big $ does not equal automaitc wins. Yes, sponsors help but everyone I know was 'self sponsered' at the begining. Good places to whach are VORRA in N CA, MDR (www.mdrracing.com), MORE, FUD in S CA, BITD in NV, SCORE, CODE in Mexico.
