What is this event? Honestly, we're not sure. It's the first time this events is being held. It's part of the Silver State jamboree in Reno, NV.
The Carrera Del Diablo is a brand new type of event designed for street legal off road vehicles. It's part navigation, part endurance, part scavenger hunt, part skills test and who knows what else. We'll find out more today! The event covers 260 miles and they're guessing it will take the teams 12+ hours to compete.
This year the event was invite only and these folks will be known as "Reno originals". GenRight received 2 invitations and we have our Terremoto and our Triton JKs entered. I'm following everything on Facebook (RallyVenture and GenRight Off Road on Facebook) and at the first checkpoint the teams had to navigate a small course with an Axial RC crawler.
Please go over to Facebook and follow, like and share our pages, pictures and posts. We're hearing there may be some social media aspect to this competition. And there's a beautiful woman competing against us (Monster Truck Driver Nicole Johnson) and she gets about 900 likes as soon as she posts a pic so we need all the help we can get!!
