Hope you get it ready Brett, as the course is really a lot of fun. If not we will be happy to have your help. Just need a few check points covered to make sure no one cheated. Would be cool for people to radio in information to the main camp as well.
Jeff,

My volunteers are waiting to hear something from you but I'm guessing you are so swamped that you may not get to them before the event? I believe they are already committed so I'll fill them in a little and we can assign duties when they arrive at HammerTown.

I have one base unit radio I can donate for their use for sure. I just need to double check frequencies to make sure I have the one you are going to use.

Just to help people get motivated a bit more, here's some pics from the first year's KOH UTV race:





























Good luck to everyone this year...it's one hell of a race, to say the least.

Sorry for not getting back to PM's on Pirate, but I don't post often over there and My PM box would take a month to answer so I have to ignore it right now. Emails I can do..... Pms on multiple message boards not so much.:D [email protected]

I will brief Reid on the Course needs when we are out marking it late next week.

4-5 check points are needed. at the check point you need a pen, a watch, and a pad of paper. If you have a radio that is even better.

I want to be really clear on this next item.
In the pictures It looks like Casey is receiveing outside assitance. In 2009 we did not promote the race. The rules where set by sidexside superjam. I don't believe it was against the rules back than, It is now.

You can not get outside assitance what so ever. The driver and the Co driver have to do all the work. The BLM will require us to disqualify you if a spectator touches your race car. In an area like that there will be a boundry that spectators can not cross, if they do we have problems. We are not under a microscope with UTV's like we are with the Ultra4's, but please lets not even let the BLM think they need to go down the same road.

Its a really fun race, I hope we can keep it that way, because I can tell you the UTV guys and gals want nothing to do with the rules we have for U4s.;)


We are closing the Course down to the U4 guys on Thursday so the UTVs don't have to worry about pre runners, but specators are going to all over the trails all week. I can't do to much about them. We should not have too much trouble at 8 in the morning on a Thursday as every one there should know the course.



If you want to come out and play early we start marking the course a week from this Friday, and its a great way to see the desert in your UTV. I will be living in Hammertown from Jan 26th until about Feb 18th. Stop onto the lakebed and say hello.

Radio fequencies, almost forgot


We have a private freq we use that I don't make public as it would sound like the weatherman at the 1000.

We have multiple freq we use that we make public.
The weatherman
BITD
BFG Relay

Weatherman is our recovery channel so if you want to listen to recovery efforts that will work.

We will let you guys racing know what the frequency will be for the UTV race onsite.
PCI, and Rugged race radio will be onsite at KOH.

Nice pic...love the droop that thing has or might look slightly more than normal due to your angled rocker panels. How's the foot room inside that thing with the angled rockers Jon?
