WHITE BEAR LAKE, Minn. (April 10, 2007) – The PowerSports ATV Tour has completed its plans to offer alternative amateur racing lines on its QuadTerrain Challenge courses this season. The modifications to the courses will be used for the three QTC amateur classes at each event on the 2007 schedule.
The new lines are being created to allow less experienced riders to compete without the concern over experience or equipment costs.
"We received quite a bit of feedback from our up-and-coming riders to give them a better chance to gain experience in the QuadTerrain Challenge Series," said PowerSports Entertainment CEO Rick Murphy. "The philosophy behind offering the amateur alternative racing lines is based on that feedback: To provide less seasoned riders the chance to gain valuable racing experience on a less challenging course.
"Additionally, the courses will allow for lower overall racing budgets," added Murphy. "The alternative lines will be much less trying on the amateur quads, allowing them to race at a much reduced overall budget."
The PowerSports ATV Tour kicks off its 2007 season in two weeks, during the April 27-29 ITP Tires Southern Open Championship at Silver Dollar Motocross Raceway in Reynolds, Ga. The venue offers spectacular vistas with views of the entire track, as well as giving fans the ability to bring their own coolers. The event will feature the Tour's three Pro classes: SuperQuad Pro 450 MX, SuperSport side-by-side, and QuadTerrain Challenge Pro Stock. In addition, there will be a full card of Amateur, Women's and Junior racing.
