sparks hydro fest

General News

hello racers

i am sad to say this years sparks event has been canceled. after many hours spent by craig williams preparing for this event, agreeable terms could not be reached.

i wish to thank craig on behalf of regon 11 for the countless hours he has spent  trying to bring racing back to sparks. it is a great facility to race at.

maybe next year

REGION 11 DATE CHANGE UPDATES

General News

good day region family

here are some date changes..................

the REGION MEETING AND BANQUET has been set for feb 15th. so mark your calenders. watch for your banquet invite and meeting notice

the MINDEN 2 race in october... has a tentative date for oct 25th and 26th... however i have found it is is conflict with the parker 360 enduro, where they do invite some of  the same outboard classes we run. which puts the region 12 racers in a pickle as well as our event.  at presant i am looking to an alternate date of oct 11th and 12th. . our original date the 18th and 19th now has a bakersfield race scheduled that weekend.   more to come. ...............
