Jimmy Wietzel is well known for building luxury trophy truck style pre-runners and he used this experience when he designed and built this Trophy Truck. An extremely stable platform, yet surprisingly maneuverable, this truck is a lot of fun to drive. As with most trucks that are “new” to a team, this season really allowed us to get to know the truck, dial her in and find where we could improve her. Now she is ready to face the Southern Baja competition in the top class, and give you a great experience in an incredible environment and ambiance, in a truly amazing vehicle.
The cost for the above would be:
US$50,000 for the 5 race DESERT season. If not participating in first race in January, the cost is US$40,000 for 4 Desert Races
US$1,500 prep fee per race, plus you send us down the parts and material that we need.
You are responsible for all of your direct additional race costs, such a fuel, registration, licenses, crew expenses, lodging, food and drinks etc. Estimates can be provided on request
We expect to have the cars put back to the condition in which we gave them to you at the end of the season.
This package includes:
- Pit support by following vehicles: A box van, a F350 and a F250, with radios etc.
- A pre-runner: Either a caged 4 door F150 with H&M front suspension and a leaf spring in the rear, or a three seater 4 linked Bronco with I beam front suspension (2 WD). Once you tell us which vehicle you want, it would be set aside for your exclusive use for the duration of the season.
- Full race prep.
- Race Logistics and local hotel reservations made for you etc.
- Support and chase crew
- We will pre-run the course prior to your arrival, already plotting GPS trail, as well as marking waypoints, dangers etc.
