Heartland Challenge ATV &
UTV Endurance Race Announced
Fun Valley, IA (6/13/2008)
- 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
