The Griffin King of The Hammers Ultra 4 race starts on Friday 7th February (UTV race on 5th February) at 8:00am and finishes at 10:00pm. Sponsored this year by Nitto Tire, this ultimate desert race takes place in Hammertown, Boone Road, Landers, California, 92285, USA.
Originally only 12 teams took part, but the event has gained so much popularity over the years that now that figure has now risen to around 300!
This is truly a test of man/woman and machine against the toughest terrain on the planet. Vehicles must be 4 wheel drive, but after that the Ultra 4 class is unlimited. In the fast open desert sections vehicles can and will exceed 100mph, but on tricky rock crawling sections they need to be able to engage “crawler” gears with ratios capable of giving the drivers torque and control.
