Default Capreol Days Rock Crawling Comp.

This is our second annual event to be held August 4th 2013 at the Capreol Ski Hill in Sudbury On.
Registration is on Saturday August 3rd at noon and possibly a local trail ride.

3 classes
Stock; all stock drivetrain with upgraded parts, bolt on lift, axles in stock location, gas tank in stock location, 33" tires max, and so on.

modified; axle swaps, engine swaps, any suspension, wheelbase stretch, additional roll over protection required, 34"-40" tires...

Unlimited class; well, anything goes. buggy's, truggy's, Juggy's rear stear, what ever size tires you bring and so on...


All entries must have a first aid kit, seat belts or harnesses, helmets, onboard fire extinguisher, and some sort of fire protection between the fuel tank and drivers compartment (not an issue in stock class)


Thanks for looking,
Sam

For any 'Mericans that we're wondering, Sudbury is about 3 hours East of the Soo border crossing...

Hey Sam, how's business???

What qualifies as "some sort of fire protection between the fuel tank and drivers compartment"? A firewall? Active fire extinguishing system? Fire blanket? How about for propane, same deal, or is the sealed fuel cylinder ok?

Do you guys have metric calendars? Mine shows August 4th being a Sunday, and August 5th, as a Monday. Is this the same weekend as the Truck Rodeo?

Your more than welcome to the trailer.

Then you could leave Chelsea's rig on it when I come back and get it for the following weekend

We are changing the course around. it is gonna still be concrete pieces like last year but bigger obsticals, a couple stages and multiple runs this year.


We wanted to have the courses shotcreted but got screwed again this year. I have already submitted a requisition to have it done next year with a nother company, hopfully it pans out.

We aim to make it bigger and better every year, but cant do it if nobody comes to compete...

This weekend is the rock crawl.
Big changes to the course have been made and a few more to come this week. in the unlimited class there is an 8' wall at about 75 incline!

The stock course remains relatively untouched, just mixed it up a little and the mod course is now closer to the spectator area. all new courses with all new event layout so drivers will have multiple runs.

again any one competing needs to be at the capreol ski hill on saturday morning for registration and tech. you will have a chance to walk the courses at that time. If there is interest we can do a short trail ride near by in the afternoon.

Sam
