We are getting close! Over 50 pre-entries for the Silver State Forklift Fallon 250, and it is only going to get bigger!
This race is getting huge. Possibly the biggest VORRA race ever! And being it is our (Laura and B.j.) first desert race, BLM considers it a probationary race. Meaning, any major violations, track cutting, fires, fuel spills, trash left out, fireworks, you name it.... will jeopardize future VORRA races. Our BLM contact is great. Seriously, he is going above and beyond for us! However, there are some things bigger than him. So we really, really hope everyone can and will be on our best behavior.
Sad to say, but the days of open prerunning are over...
We are being restricted to one guided pre-run lap, starting at the start/finish line. The lap will begin at 10am Friday morning. All prerunners will need to sign a release form, and document the type of vehicle being used. I know this is not ideal, but this is the game we must play. Violators of this rule will face penaltys, with disqualification a consideration.
We need at the minimum, a tarp laid down prior to filling with fuel. In the event of a spill, the fuel must be soaked up. The easiest is diapers. If fuel is spilled onto the ground, that soil or sand must be dug up and disposed of properly.
Recovery will be handled by VORRA chase rigs and brought to the closest access point or checkpoint. Welding of any kind is restricted to the checkpoint or start/finish. Fires of any sort are restricted to above ground pits. Fire extinguishers must be in every pit and on every race car. No exceptions.
The Fallon course takes place in restricted air space due to the naval base. Any and all media must sign in during registration and sign a waiver. Any media looking to fly a drone must possess a drone certification or license. Any other drone use may result in penaltys associated with said team.
That’s it for now, but will make further updates as necessary. We hope you all can understand the position we are in. We truly hate having to be fun suckers. Please take a moment to spread this info.
Who is ready!? This is going to be BIG! Silver State Forklift is our presenting sponsor for this race… The Seymour family is putting up some serious cash!
This is the biggest, most jammed packed weekend VORRA has ever had. There are a lot of details we want to put out there for everyone. Saturday will be a long action packed day! There will be three differnent races happening throughout the day. In order to keep everything moving on time, keep everyone safe we need to make sure everyone is on the same page so please make sure to read through all the information on this page and attend the mandatory driver meetings before the race
It is going to be a long, action-packed day! In order to stay on time, keep the races going, and stay safe we all need to be on the same page with the schedule.
Riders meeting at 6 30 AM- attendance is mandatory! There will be a role call.
The race will start at 7 AM Pro and expert classes will race 3 laps, amateur and ladies will race 2 laps. The race will be grand prix style, meaning that once the lead bike finishes, you will not be able to start another lap. If it is deemed you will not be able to complete another lap before the race is over you may be held at the start/finish. Similarily you may be held at a checkpoint if it is deemed you will not be able to finish before the race ends. No bikes will leave the Start/Finish after 9 AM. All bikes will be cleared of the track before the next race begins!
Driver meeting 9:00 AM - attendance is mandatory! There will be a role call.
This race will start at 9:30 AM. UTVs will race 2 laps, all other classes will race 3. The race will be grand prix style. Meaning that once the lead vehicle for your class finishes you will not be allowed to start another lap. If it is deemed you will not be able to complete another lap before the race is over you may be held at the start/finish. Similarily you may be held at a checkpoint if it is deemed you will not be able to finish before the race ends. No vehicles will leave the Start/Finish after 3 PM
This will be a NO TOUCH race!There is no bumping, tapping, or nerfing. If you are caught move over! it is all about safety. Penalties or disqualification may be issued. All classes need to have working brake lights and read amber lights. All vehicles must also have a working horn. Stock UTVs may not have large rear bumpers.
Driver meeting 12:00 PM - attendance is mandatory! There will be a role call.
The last race of the evening will start at 4 PM and run into the night. All classes will race 6 laps. There is an 8 hour time limit on this race. All vehicles running the evening race will need working head lights as well as brake lights, rear amber light UTV's also require a flashing blue or green light. YOU WILL NOT PASS TECH WITHOUT WORKING LIGHTS.
Pro UTVs will be running with the open classes but they will be a no touch class. They will allowed to nerf each other but no other classes can cerf a UTV
The track is 42 miles long and will consist of 3 checkpoints. Check points 1 and 3 are accessible, checkpoint 2 is also accessible but is a long way around to get to it. Pro Pit will be manning and running checkpoint 2. Trust us, its the best $25 you will ever spend. Pro Pit will be at tech on Friday evening (4:00pm - 7:00pm), and they can haul spares, as well as fuel to their pit.
All classes must make a full and complete stop at each chekpoint. Each checkpoint will have a 25 mph zone before and after. Radar guns will be in play and time penalties will be issued for speeding at a checkpoint or the start/finish area. This is a safety issue and will be take seriously!
This is a non-transponder race so if the checkpoints or start/finish cannot read your number, you may not be scored. It is your responsiblity to make sure your numbers are easily visible.
The start/finish area will be at the bottom of the hill in the main pit area. However the first two races will finish at the top of the hill. Our goal is to finish without having to slow down to 25 mph through the pits. Additionally, with other race classes starting, this will eliminate the finishers coming into the start line.
We will have our own crew running recovery during the race. These vehicles will have amber lights and spotters watching for oncoming racers. If you catch these vehicles be patient as they are on the track to respond to an emergency ro a broken vehicle. They will move as soon as possible. Other than VORRA staff we do not want anyone trying to respond and retrieve vehicles on the course. We will retrive and take the car to the next checkpoint.
Speed limit in the pits is 25 mph. This will be strictly enforced!
In main pits and all checkpoints, if and when while fueling your race car you MUST have a fuel containment system. I suggest doing some research. The BLM will be there inspecting and advising on fuel storage and containment systems.
Bikes and Quads, are you ready!? You all have been asking for years... So, let’s do this!
Open Pro, Open Expert, Amateur, and Ladies’ classes will race. Pro and expert classes will race 3 laps, amateur and ladies will race 2 laps
Safety gear is required. Rear Flashing light is not mandatory but recommended.
Number plates go as follows:
All numbers except #1 are open
The #1 chip draw will start on his own. After that everyone else will start two at a time, 30 seconds apart
All UTV classes must have brake lights, 1 amber light, and a flashing green or blue light. We suggest green as local OHV parks in California are starting to ask that blue lights are not used Pro UTVS will also need working front lights as they will be racing at night
We have partnered with rearlightbar.com, Dave is putting together VORRA specific bars, and is giving BIG discounts. rearlightbar.com will be a HUGE contingency for VORRA at Fallon for all classes.
