Re: Looking for S.E. racing event series

If you want to participate in a rally type of race, check out the Sonora Rally in Mexico. Yokohama Sonora Rally - Home

Yes, it's quite a haul to get there, but it looks pretty cool if you're really into that type of racing and experience.

Re: Looking for S.E. racing event series

You would need to check on if they are running 2018, but Rally Raid is another endurance type series around the area.

That is really what I wanted to do with my 25 year old son- is to show up and run a few races with our Turbo and see how it goes. We have solid from bumper and full rear bumper rolled up to roll bar creating a 6 point cage but its bolt on - not fully welded although I could tack weld all the joints if required but only out West do they seem to require after market full welded bars.

I already sunk a few thousand which isn't hard to do as you all know in just a few minor required and optional safety mods as well as suits etc. So I have been trying to figure out if I really need to spend money and time on radios and breathers for helmets and special air filters and coolant fans for the turbo. I am getting the same read that most racing East of the Mississippi seems to be more fun and family oriented with a lot less major restrictions and you can really run true stock with some simple add ons for harnesses and nets etc.

I do get mixed reports from different people running different events if rear mounted fans and clutch coolers are required- it All depends on conditions, length and circuit you are running However, it seems like the under 4 hr races that are variable track enduros have enough slow sections and variable high speed runs that a stock Polaris handles the engine and tranny heat. I LOVE THE SIMPLE IDEA OF Strapping onto the front bumper an additional simple screen out in front of the radiator fan far enough out to keep air flow but also to provide a first line of defense of mud lock up into the stock screen. number. Anyone that has a suggested aluminum or plastic material that is a fair material which allows air flow but catches enough mud I am all ears to try a few different items when practicing and race prep.

QUESTIONS ON KILL SWITCH- Thanks for info. two questions:
1. Doesn't it have to be mounted accessible on front dash???? or can it be on side of seat by battery etc?
2. Is a direct pattern switch meet the requirements - just a battery kill switch? or does it have to wire through the ignition. They obviously both will work but the required mounting location for accessibility helps determine which one is easier. A direct battery kill on the side of the batter box with a bright red switch works and is easy to see but no one has responded in the race circuits nor others that this is accessible and meets the requirements on all the circuits.
Thanks Kris

You dont have to weld cages for GNCC or Mideast. Torc gets a lot more complicated tho.
No kill switch for Mideast. The Gncc does like your kill switch up high and easily accessible tho. Mine is on the left of the steering wheel and Red.

The newer Rzrs will still run for a little bit after you disconnect the batter, so
Battery kill switch doesn't turn the car off quick enough for them. That's why we just ran ours to the ignition wires.

Before we moved the Radiator we just put a green or blue HVAC air filter on the front of ours.... We had great success with this idea. Even ran it in Torc one weekend with out over-heating. Ours is not the Turbo tho... and I know they seem to be running a little warmer to begin with.
