The past couple of weeks have been jammed with hours of late night wreching and welding. What else would you expect with Race Day just around the corner. The team has killed it and we’re just about ready to head to the lake bed…..
EMC starting postitions were called at the Ultra4 KOH Live Show, and here are the preliminary results! Looks like we’re 16th off the line, paired up with our Texas friends, Gilstrap Racing. SWEET!!!
Desert Turtle Racing Sponsor Spotlight: This month as we count down to the big day, we will highlight some of the lesser known, non-race-industry sponsors that have helped us get to the starting line.
Race Radio Etiquette is not something that everyone is aware of. Here’s some great info, shared by our friends at Hartwig Motorsports.
The KOH Live Pre-Show is coming up on January 12th! Listen in with us as we find out our starting position for race day! This is always a great show with lots of information!
We spent the New Year’s holiday in Johnson Valley with as many hours of seat time as possible. We made every trail and desert section a learning experience, and we’ll be ready for race day.
This is our sixth Desert Turtle Racing team update. This was our initial shakedown run and our first opportunity to see some of the trails that we have never run. We are very impressed with the overall performance of the turtle. Our plan is to post an update at least once a month to keep everyone informed of our progress. Our goal is to show a realistic approach to racing the King of the Hammers Every Man Challenge.
With 38 days until the Every Man Challenge, as of today the Desert Turtle Team is back out on the lake bed for another solid week of tuning, testing and race prep.
Every minute counts!
Here are a few recent highlights…
