FOR IMMEDIATE PRESS RELEASE…
ONLY A FEW DAYS BEFORE THE FUN BEGINS
The PURE SIDE-X-SIDE OFF-ROAD DESERT SERIES, presented by SXSPerformance.com and AVE Racing festivities begin Saturday, April 6, with the “drawing” for starting positions for the PURE “200” set for April 19-21. Immediately following the drawing at Noon the “excursion” takes of from the start/finish, at 138th and Proctor, on the 50-mile tour of course, guided by AVE officials.
Participants, friends and crew are all invited to take a fun trip around one of the neatest race courses ever designed, which offers a multitude of terrain not found in most courses. To be sure, the course will take racers from deep sandy whoops to a couple of incredible climbs, especially going over the “Three Wicked Mamas” then on to the desert floor for some hard-packed, two-rail trails and onto the eastern canyon of the California City desert. Reaching the easternmost portion of the course, racers will double back through fast graded roads, more whoops, and culminating into one of the most dramatic finishing sections around the Buttes as the backdrop to the Alta Vista Ranch.
According to Lou Peralta, promoter of the PURE SERIES, “This is the first time ever we are going to use this course, although sections of it have been used before. We have a great variety of terrain and elevation that I know everyone will love. Definitely it will be a great change from what most racers are used to racing, here in the States. Certain sections look more like Baja then the U.S.”
The course will not have any markings but everyone is welcomed to bring their own GPS system to highlight sections of the race course for their use during competition. All entries will receive the "usr" file to use during the event, even if you do not attend the "Excursion."
To get into the “drawing” all it takes is sending your entry form via Fax (877.842.3052) or email it to: [email protected]
and a $50 deposit to get you into the drawing. Then join the “excursion” starting at Noon on Saturday, April 6. Be sure to get your entry/deposit in no later than Friday, April 5 by 6 p.m.
