Still Open in Warn Rockcrawling Championship
info is going to everyone that has expressed an interest in
competing in the 1999 Warn National Rock Crawling Championship. An
earlier mailing was sent in January to the '98 participants
notifying them of some rule changes for the '99 event, the new
event dates and location and that application for entry would be
open to past competitors only until May 1st. There's a limit of 60
qualified drivers/vehicles for the '99 event and we'll start
accepting applications from everyone after that date. Applications
from newcomers should be postmarked NO earlier than May 1st. The
1st 60 qualified drivers/vehicles that apply will fill the event.
The '99 event will be held in
Johnson Valley, CA over November 19-21 with check in and the
drivers meeting held on Thu the 18th.
Please know up front that this
event will be an extreme test of rock crawling for both man and
machine such that you've probably never seen or experienced
before. We'll be using routes that are not on the established
trails as you may know them. This IS NOT for anyone that gets
overly concerned about body damage and parts breakage although I'd
expect that the better prepared vehicles and drivers won't
experience any damage at all.
All vehicles must be street
legal in the sense that they have a current tag/registration and
they must also carry insurance. Drivers are encouraged to include
an extra person, a spotter, that would ride along and help guide
them through the obstacles.
This event in Johnson Valley is
only made possible by the help of the Victor Valley 4 Wheelers
club. This club is responsible for all these cool 4x4 trails being
available for everyone's use. All the hard-core trails there have
been 'built' over the years by these fine folks.
We'll have a super event and
always feel free to call with any questions.
