Press Release –
The IATVHSS is proud to announce the introduction of The GBC Motorsports Heartland Challenge, presented by PIAA, an endurance race, which will be held on November 7-8, 2008.
The first ever GBC Motorsports Heartland Challenge will begin at noon and finish at 10PM. The 10-Hour Challenge will take place at Iowa’s premier quad facility, Fun Valley.
Fun Valley was once Iowa’s favorite ski location but has now been transformed to the #1 quad facility in the state. Fun Valley will provide a unique 10-hour track that includes a motocross section, cross-country, hare scramble, and other surprises.
It will be a very intense endurance race like never seen before. There will be 12 classes racing all at the same time, with NO breaks. Each team will be allowed up to 3 riders per team with as many quads. All teams will be allowed to use only one quad at a time, all other quads will be held in a secure location. There will be no breaks or time-outs during the race, which means that you will not lose the lead that you have on the other teams.
This will be a true endurance race that is designed for the Pro’s on down through the amateurs, and features the toughest class of all, the Ironman class. We are also very excited to be able to offer the very first 3-Hour Challenge for youth riders with 5 different classes for ages 4-15. The 3-Hour Challenge teams just like the big boys with up to 3 riders with as many quads without any breaks.
Side-by-Side racing has also been included by popular demand to compete with their own 3 hour challenge on Friday evening. We will be offering 4 classes to choose from. Finally, look for more details about our Milwaukee Tools Pit Stop Challenge and get your whole team ‘to take the challenge’.
We are very excited to announce GBC Motorsports Performance ATV Tires as our title sponsor and PIAA Performance Lighting Systems as our presenting sponsor.
The commitment from GBC Motorsports Performance ATV Tires and PIAA Performance Lighting Systems to make this be an annual event for years to come for the whole family to look forward to.
We are currently seeking sponsor to join us in entertaining the world here in the Heartland. Our guaranteed purse and entry fees will be announced once we have finished securing our sponsorship packages.
We will also be doing pre-registration for the event via our webpage: www.Heartlandchallenge.com.
