The 2017 opening round of AZOP Racing is only 2 weeks away! The Best Offroad race in Arizona. This will be 4 laps on 30 mile loop. Go to azopracing.com to get your membership and save your race number. info is also on the website.
A long desert race in Az would be really great. BITD Parker 425 is the as race to run. However, land management groups make it difficult for promoters like AZOP and SADR to secure reasonably priced permits. If you are ok with short loops, tight courses and a Grand Prix style finish run with AZOP. If you are cool with traveling to Mexico for 125+ mile loop and 250 to 300 miles races, run with SADR. The choice is yours.
AZOP puts on the best races the can. They have a limited budget and pull with BLM. They will have two truck/buggy races this year. AZOP races and SADR races are the same price to enter. The only differences are long desert races vs short and Mexico vs Arizona.
I can understand that people don't like going to Mexico? However, if you are a desert racer, long races appeal more too me than short races. You basically pay per mile.
Racing handlebars this weekend. Are we able to tech and register on Friday or do we have to do it Saturday morning? And if we are able to tech/register on Friday, do we have to pay gate fees for everybody as well on Friday?
