texas offroad racing organization (toro)

4 posts in this topic

hey racers!

i know that there have been lots of questions lately regarding the startup of the texas offroad racing organization (toro) championship series this winter. the reader's digest version of what's going on right now is that we are working our asses off! starting a new series involves a wagon-load of jobs from creating a standard gate receipt to securing a series sponsor, and the number of details sometimes seems overwhelming. however, we have a great team of folks working daily, and we hope to launch the product on august 15th with a mailer and links to our website. both will provide a method for mail-in series signup, which will be limited to 500 riders.

the website will have answers to all your questions i imagine, but i can answer a few here: yes, toro will be running dead engine starts. toro will be run on a time-plus-one-lap format. there will be 6 races, 5 of which will count towards series awards. the races will rotate so that everyone will get 2 chances out of 6 to ride the track first. practice will be limited to specific times on saturday, and will be organized according to skill level - minis and ladies get their own practice.

our current board of directors looks like this:

shawn goolsby

doyle rodgers

mark marshall

brian storrie

bill pearson

stephen griner

as we finalize job descriptions and positions, we will announce the remainder of the staff. i am the chairman of the board and the series president, and would be happy to answer any questions i am able to at this time. feel free to email me off line at any time.

regards,

will pattison

president, board chairman

That’s great Will!!

Hopefully you guys will have a few events in West Texas that I could be coaxed into driving out to. El Paso is in never-never land, as far as Texas goes.

Well, as far as anyplace goes, actually :)

Does this mean TCCRA is dead, or are you guys just running events in addition to theirs?

I've never even been to a TCCRA event, just heard a few things about them...

tccra is alive and kicking, still handing out "state" championships. :) the tccra started it all, so i have to give them lots of credit for laying the groundwork. we are just providing a supplementary product for racers like me who can't stand sitting around all winter.
