SO CAL DESERT Racing Series

Hi everybody

I need some feed back on the possibility of starting a DESERT racing series in Southern California.
This would be dedicated to UTVs, Stadium Lights, CLs and Motorcycle engined buggies.
At this point everything is up in the air. What I am trying to ascertain is if there is enough interest for such a series. In other words If I build it, will you come?

The races would be shorter than the normal off-road races already in place which are really meant for full sized vehicles. I am thinking loops of about 25 miles and race length of about 100 miles possibly 150 miles. The length will vary depending on class.

The most likely area would be Barstow but other areas in So. Cal such as Lucerne Valley, California City, etc are not out of the question. Probably 5-6 races a year.

Rules would be pretty much standard as used by existing series.

Please let me know just how interested you would be. I would like to know just how many already race in other series and those who may consider entering but still have to prepare a vehicle.
Thoughts, suggestion, opinions, concerns are all welcome. Please contact me at the email address below.

Thank you very much
Tony

EVERYBODY
I would like to have a "exploratory expedition" to look at potential track routes up in the Barstow area.
This will probably happen on December 6. There is a MORE race on December 5.
We will probably get together at the Slash X.
Time TBA.
Let see a count of hands

Planned classes:

UTV Stock - Bone Stock as delivered by manufacturer
UTV Mod - Base stock with all sorts of mods, stock chassis mods allowed
UTV Open - Just about everything goes within wheelbase restriction. All tube chassis and up to 1200cc engine. (no automotive)

Buggy Light - Up to 90" wheelbase, eng 500cc 2-stroke/800cc 4-stroke
Mini Buggy - Up to 100" wheelbase, 1000cc m/c engine
Open Buggy - up tp 110" wheelbase, 1200cc m/c engine
3K - Up to 103" wheelbase, automotive engine up to 2,400cc
Trophy Kart Elite - Not sure if I am having this one.

We are getting together this Sunday, the 6th, at the Slash-X cafe start/finish at 9am. I have thrown together a whip flag for my buggy with my Avatar (white on black). Look for it.
I will have a few copies of the rule book which even though not complete should give you a good idea where I am going with this.
You do not have to bring your race vehicle. Anything that you feel confident with out in the desert will be fine.

So Cal Racing Series

Hi guys
First I hope you all had a great festive season and you have all got over hangovers, etc.
I have now a proposed track which I have been over twice first with a truck and second with a Stock Rhino followed by a Ranger.
It is almost 10 miles it is relatively easy even with a couple of "technical" sections. This loop has not been approved by the BLM.
MORE has a race on the 23nd and I am hoping to get some of the interested racers to meet at the Slash X area on the 24th
to do a "fun run" around the loop..
If you are interested please send me your private email and I will send you a map of the track.
Tony
