Racing Dreamz is looking into the possibility of purchasing land to host organized SxS racing for youngsters. If we can do this, we plan on having one directional trails, rally raid style racing. Meaning, no wheel to wheel racing, only timed starts and timed laps. The course would be over about 45-50 acres. All of this, at this time, would be in upper east Tennessee. My question(poll) is, would you, as a family with children who drives mini UTV's/buggys, be interested in this family style racing for the kids?
Please feel free to reply with your suggestions and comments.
We hope to have 3 age groups. From ages 8-10, 11-13, 14-16. 150cc, 250cc and open class for the older kids. But they must be driving a mini SxS.
We need your response so that we know how to proceed.
Thank you...

Yea, after I posted that, I remembered the 170's. They would be included in the 150 class. :)

How far would it be for you to travel?

Not sure Indiana would be nice. My daughter is only 5 so it would be awhile before she could race. Even though she drive the heck out of her 170. I really like the idea and would love to see more youth sxs at harescrambles and even gncc. Wish u luck hope you get some support.

Great idea. My oldest is 19 and my youngest is 18 months. No other kids in between so it would be years before we could participate.
But i have tried to follow what you guys are doing down there and i do like what i see. If you are still there when we get ready we will be there from southern Illinois.

As of right now, there is not a 'girls' class. Actually, I wouldnt want to seperate the girls from the boys as that might 'upset' them. :) She'll be fine against the boys, I'm sure. :)

The boys can use same vehicle, yes. As only one vehicle will be on course at a time. They would be in different age classes so, no problem at all. Thanks for coming down. Looking forward to meeting you. :)



NEW FLYER!!
