"Day in the Dirt" & Race Rental Program

TrophyLite R-4 Rental Overview

Have you ever wondered what it was like to race against the best in a battle proven off road race truck? Maybe racing is not in your budget, but you have an insatiable appetite for speed and adventure and like to push your limits. How about learning greater car control and want a class in performance off road driving? At TrophyLite, we offer all the above and we invite you to join us on a life changing adventure.

Day in the Dirt Program

The "Day in the Dirt" program is from 1 day to multiple days driving, learning, testing and fun in the desert. This traveling road show can go just about anywhere but we normally use one of our favorite locations like Plaster City CA, Barstow CA, Phoenix AZ, Parker AZ or Las Vegas NV. We bring out up to 4 of our TrophyLite race trucks with a full crew, chase trucks with tools, canopies for shade and provide a lunch break during the day. The day starts out with an introduction to desert racing, safety, getting to know the vehicle and its parts and truck inspection. We take you around a 3-10 mile loop to show you how the truck works and reacts to get you familiar with the terrain. Total driving is approximately 60-80 miles each day and 8 hours +/-. When you are comfortable and ready, we let you drive, first testing the brakes, steering and throttle response as an instructor rides with you and works with you, repeating this process until you are comfortable and get up to speed. We take breaks in between test and talk about how to preserve the vehicle, how to get faster, what to expect at a race and how the event unfolds.

Preparation & Training

We practice a tire change in case of a flat, go over proper radio communication, what do to in case you get stuck or an emergency. This is also a 2-person class if you have a navigator or plan on switching driving duties halfway between a race or class, and you can split the cost. We go over navigational duties, reading the GPS, watching gauges, motivating and working with your driver as a team. We provide helmets, driving suits and gloves if you need them as ours are wired for communication and air system.

Estimated Expenses

The cost is $2000.00 for the day for a 1-2 person team or $1500.00 per day if you have booked a race package with us and multiple days are discounted as well. Normal wear & tear on the truck is included. This does not include destructive damage to the truck and an insurance policy is available. We require you to have health insurance in force and liability waiver signed. We do have EMT on our team and are prepared for any unforeseen accidents as a safety precaution. This is not a group event and is a one-on-one learning session to your speed, so you learn quickly or at your pace and we can focus directly on teaching you.

The Actual races vary in price depending on location, race mileage and what is needed to support the race. If you look at www.bitd.com, www.SCORE-international.com, www.snoreracing.net race schedules or www.norra.com for the Mexican 1000 to find a date that would works best for you, we can quote you a price and what it includes. I would suggest planning a trip where you arrive up to a week in advance, so we could test, train and get you prepared to race. The trucks are fun and not over challenging to drive for most and for advanced drivers they will impress and push you to the limits. The speeds top out at 90+ but are not explosive and hard to handle. The good thing, everybody has the same vehicle and it comes down to driver ability, preparedness, team work and strategy.
