Best in the Desert UTV Rulebook

A error was made when the updated rulebook was posted on 7-28-15. The error has been corrected. The error was with the "engine update" The engine update rule will not be in effect till 1-1-16. The BITD UTV rulebook has been updated and is effective as of 8-1-15. All racers planning to race a "pro production turbocharged" UTV please read the rulebook very carefully. All rules will be enforced with no exceptions.

Update on Factory Turbo UTV racing in BITD and SCORE

Starting with the SCORE Baja 500 in June all factory turbo UTV's will be required to race with ECM's that will be issued at tech inspection. These ECM's will be installed at tech and sealed. The ECM must be removed by a race official at the end of the race. These ECM's will be marked with the UTV race number and will stay with the race series. All factory turbo race UTV's must contact Cory Sappington 602-769-6164 prior to racing to schedule a meeting to have the ECM installed and matched to their UTV. Please contact Cory asap If you are racing a factory Turbo UTV in BITD or SCORE.

BITD Unlimited UTV class rule update

Any UTV that is legal to race in the Pro Production class will not be allowed to race in the Unlimited UTV class. This rule is effective as of May 1 2015

BITD UTV Tech fees

The UTV tech fee at BITD is $30.00. ($5 of the $30 goes towards an award called "the every mile award") The question has been raised why UTV's pay a tech fee at BITD races. Back in 2005 when I (Cory Sappington) created the BITD UTV class, Casey Folks (owner of BITD) asked me if I would; write the rules, manage the class and tech the UTV's, I agreeded. He in return promised to charge the UTV's the same amount for entree fees as the pro motorcycles and allow me to charge a tech fee to cover my costs, time to tech and manage the class.
