Klaus, here a news release on the ROC Offroad Challenge. a desert/rock race.
6/6/08 For immediate release
TrailReady Products is proud to be a major sponsor for the first annual ROC Offroad Challenge hosted by the RAM Offroad Park in Colorado Springs, CO on June 27-28th, 2008
The Ram Offroad Challenge combines desert racing , rock crawling , rock racing , and even motocross into one adrenaline pumping extreme package !! This is the evolution of the rock sports ! Drivers will have some serious seat time , and will experience a wide variety of off-road disciplines ! Competitors can expect lap times of about 12-15 minutes if they are lucky enough to complete this brutal test of man and machine!
The race format will run like this...
We will start with 36 vehicles . These 36 will be broken into groups of 12. We will start 2 drivers at a time , roughly 2 minutes apart. These vehicles will be racing on the same course except in very specific areas . We will take the 4 fastest times of each of these 3 heats and put them into the second round , we will do the same with the middle times and finally the slow times. Everyone will run their second heats . We will then take the combined times and pull out our 8 fastest drivers of the day , and this will become our final shoot out race ! We will be paying back 3-spots and should have some great runner up prizes !! The final 8 will be starting with a combined time of their first 2 runs !! The slowest times of the day will be starting first in the shootout 8-1 and should have a slight dust advantage as well as a lap traffic advantage !
These courses are FAST !!! We have the huge steep climbs you have come to expect from the RAM Offroad Park , as well as the gap jumps ! In addition we have long desert style , fast sections full of big rollers , berms , whoops , jumps , tight sandy washes and more !!
Set up on the rigs will be critical !!!
My name is Jose Garcia, I'm an employee at Powers RV in Salinas, Calif. I'm working on our company Website posting ads for our trailer inventory. My job is finding organizations that help us sell our trailers. I see that in your Website, you have a Motorcoach and Toy Hauler classified link that's free of charge. That link would be perfect for us to sell what we got in stock. We have almost every RV you can think off, except the one that floats on water...This Website is great, I really think people who own prerunners, bikes, quads and race trucks would find it really cool. I really think they would be pleased with the prices and inventory we have.
Klaus-My name is Ben Heath. I worked with Derek Collins for the past year on the Herbst TT Project-we were both layed off not too long ago. Anyway, I recently tried posting an add up in the jobs/services section of RDC. I noticed today the ads were updated, however, mine has not shown up. I was curious as to why it did not? Perhaps I posted something that was not allowed to be in that section? Let me know what I can do to make it right-I sure could use the advertisement! Thanks again for a great site/resource!
