Some information about the race.
This race was sponsored by S.N.O.R.E. (Southern Nevada Off Road Enthusiasts). It was the first time a Grand Prix was held in the Cedar City, Utah area. People from all over in the desert southwest showed up to race and watch the race. We were given a Media pass so we could go onto the course and set up our photography and video equipment. Below is the video of time lapses, video and a few of the photos, plus a pre-run done the day before the race for a quick look at a small section of the course. More photos below.

We had an acquaintance from Hurricane, Utah racing in this race.
Our friends from Dixie 4 Wheel Drive in St. George, Utah were also in the Grand Prix race at 3 Peaks. Apparently there was quite a few drivers from the state of Utah.
This was found the day after the race by Tracy Rossi, wife of race car driver Jim Rossi. She said it was a fender from a vehicle from California. The closeness of the race course to the Juniper trees made it hazardous. But race courses are that way! They went out the day after the race to clean up the race course and remove all the signs.

If they have this race next year, you really shouldn't miss it. They had a great spectators area set up for viewing part of the race, including the start and finish. Keep with all the race events on our EVENTS PAGE
