The team at the Badlands Off Road Park in Attica, Indiana, has announced a new off-road racing series for '09 called TREC (Trail Racing Endurance Circuit). This four-race Series is designed to transform the average Saturday trail ride into a full-on race over a variety of terrain at redline speeds.
From the Badlands press release:
"TREC is about endurance, not the difficulty of an obstacle. A 12+ mile course has been designed at the Badlands Off Road Park in Attica, Indiana. This course will encompass everything a normal slow trail ride has, such as rocks, hills, mud, sand, etc., but now speed has been incorporated into the competition! The Badlands has the unique ability to offer a small scale desert-style race and dense woods that will maximize the thrill and offer even more excitement!"
All races will be held after the park closes in the evening and the races will last approximately two hours. Multiple vehicles will start at one time in staged starts and racers will have two classes to choose from. The first race is expected to take place in daylight, but races later in the Series will require drivers to race into the dark and the final race is expected to take place in total darkness.
These events will be open to spectators. Entry fees for competitors have not been finalized at this time.
