A brand new event coming to the SW region.
Coefficent 3 with 65.5 stage miles
Location: Cedar City, Utah (1 1/2 hours from Las Vegas)
The city is located up against the Rocky Mountains behind Zion National Park.
Two stage roads are up on the mountain side with the elevation at 4K to 9K feet climb. You do NOT do a reverse but do a loop back to start twice on both the the stages. Very twisty/sweeping and and climbs of course in elevation.
Other two stage roads are on the valley floor and are a hoot to drive on the other side of I-15.
Hotel HQ: Crystal Inn and the overflow hotel is right across Crystal Inn as Super 8 motel. Both have rally rates but Crystall Inn is booked for Thursday night but are open for the weekend. So you can room at the Super 8 for one night and move on over to Crystal Inn and Suites for Friday through Sunday.

Parc Expose - Friday evening in downtown Cedar City.
What is great about this event is the stages for this event this year are not far away from the city. We have a full support of the city council and townspeople. They are getting the permits for us and getting volunteers for us to be split between us and the Tour of Utah. Which starts on that Monday where they expect over 10,000 people in for that event. NBC Sports film crew along with VIP sponsors so who knows we may get them to check out our event and see where it leads for 2015.
Stage Schedule will be going up on the event website next week. The supplemental regulations will be done within a few weeks.
All licensed competitors are welcomed from all sanction bodies. If you have a license then we just need a copy to check you have been accepted by those sanction bodies. No addtiional license monies are needed. The insurance policy will be very solid. We have to meet the needs of their expectations.
If you are a novice. I explained that we would need to see a racing resume. But we will do this on a case by case basis with the steward and clerk of the course.
