I don’t get the comparison.

Class 11 is cool for sure and this guys are warriors. But so are the TT teams. It’s not easy to go Mach 2 through the desert in a TT.

Again Class 11 is cool but no comparison.

I guess I am not seeing the stereotype.

I know guys like Luke and Jason Duncan work hard for the results. To say all guys racing TT are country clubbers is a stretch.

I also don’t see the point in putting one class down to make another look better. But that’s just me.

Both Class 11 and TT can be cool at the same time. Class 11 does not need to borrow any coolness from TT.

Being someone with NO clue or racing experience Im curious,
Has an established TT driver ever entered an 11 car in the past? I would guess not many in the B1K, if at all.

How many 11 car teams/drivers would give TT a go if given a budget and time to prepare?

How many TT drivers started out in an 11?

Controversial take: They were both great?

It was a fun race. Love seeing so many 11s make it. I know you want the course to be punishing, but if they dialed the throttle back a place or two, it was still hard, but hard racers still triumphed. Seems like a good balance, especially for the rare peninsula run.

Several of them started in the lower classes. Rob Mac started in 1600 as a kid. No CC there. Just a hard working guy who worked his way up thru the ranks.
LR was a bike guy for like forever.
Cameron Steele was a buggy dork as well.

Yeah probably right. Everyone has their own idea of fun. No reason for me to piss on your fun. Haha.

I have my own screwed up idea of what is fun.

I believe Gus Vildosolo raced a class 11 in a 1000 with Klaus after success in Trophy Truck (him and his son are B1k TT winners). I think they won in the 11 but not sure.
This event was so rad. Trophy truck vs class 11 shootout with invited drivers. We won. Dave-co with old Perry Mcneil at the wheel. Beat the rest of the trophy truck drivers in heat 1. 2nd out of all the 11's. We almost won the 2nd heat and the full event but the front end failed. Fixed it and won bap the very next weekend. Wish they would put on an event like this again. It was a ton of fun!!!! Very cool to see Chad Ragland in the video. He is missed for sure. Dude was a true driver in any class.

How about a little love for the Ironman class 7xxX...its one thing to be in a "car" its a whole other thing to be on a bike for 1,200+ miles!
and even more the 2 ATV ironman guys. one of them made history as being the only one who has done it twice in the peninsula run.

The problem with trophy truck is that it’s risen hand in hand with the socialist/communist/lgbqxyz culture we have today that really started in the 90’s and went mainstream in the 2000’s.

Here’s my point. The name trophy truck is misleading. Where is the truck at in it? The body does not even look like a truck I have ever seen. It’s really a homogenized cross dna of a car and a buggy. In this way it is a transgender car dressed in truck clothes. It’s gay it was it plainly.

Class 11 like all the original classes in Offroad racing such as 1, 3, 7,8 and 9 are keeping in straight and honest.





All meant for lols.
