Inspired by weather of Biblical proportions , Seed 9 promotions is please to be sole importer of spec ARK.

Spec ARKS will Retail for $55,000 including dock fees , while the buy in price may seem high potential buyers are renminded that the prototype ran for 40 days and 40 nights with no service. Also the recent increase in the price of Gopher Wood has driven the price up.
The designer of spec ARK who goes by the name Noah commented on the price as well "remember these are hand built Rally Arks ".
Noah went on to say
"The advantage with Spec-Ark is that there is no need to get a hotel room or service vehicle as everything will fit inside and it comes with a fully stocked galley" .
Noah did say he may have to work on a model with a Galley for Vegetarians.
The USFS is also endorsing this concept as the Spec Ark is bio-degradeable. Of course the Bio-degradable feature will anger some SCCA competittors as they will now have a useless spill kit should they decide to run Spec Ark.
All Arks will be inspected by Orkin as well as SCCA National Staff. SCCA's Nation Tech inspector Doug Robinson said he thought the Spec nature of the class would cut down on protests.
"how many guys are going to ask us to inspect some guys wood"
All competitors will be required to use the Spec Ark Logo as well as display Orkin decals and have an annual termite inspection.

Sorry I'm new to this but how many Seatbelt Cutters are required in ARKs? Do you have to have one SAM Splint or more ? I believe the Spill Kit has to be a bit bigger too especially considering the elephants etc. Does SCCA know about it, did they require the Kitchen Sink yet ????

Enlighten me please }>

Cheers

The splint is included in the ARK. See page 12 of your ARK survival kit. Simply save the leg bone of the first Ox you barbeque . If that doesn't work there are provisons for using the jaw bone of an Ass , althougth we do not recommend using the jaw bone for a splint as you may need it to repel any philistines who attempt a hostile take over.

I just ordered 1000 yards of woodgrain contact paper. I'm gonna start by covering the carbon fiber rudder and, if that is convincing, I'll do the whole dang thing.

Elephants are a lot of weight, but if you wanna talk about an efficient hydraulic pump...that rudder will have power steering that won't fail no matter what! Especially nice being equipped with a spare elephant!

Look at the bright side, tire choice will not be a major issue.
We will be looking forward for aquaplaning.

OK enough we are all loosing it.

given the build year of the original model, these things will not qualify for ProRally. They will certainly be welcomed into Historic Class, however.

This is a Spec class so it will be Pro , I think your confusion may stem from the fact that the Prototype was logged in the good book vs. Log Booked so technically it would be considered a new vehicle.

Have you looked into the sweep issue? I hear that ARKs have a tendency to get stuck on mountain tops.

One added benefit, however, is the environmental issue. Not only would the spec-ARK not threaten the homes of the resident creatures wherever the rally is taking place, it actually protects endangered species by providing a home for some of each of them. Not many racing venues can claim that.

There will be no annuals intially as to do proper inspections , all of our inspectors will have to complete Divinty School.

Spec-ARK dimensions

These Spec-ARKs are rumored to fit in a 300 cubits x 80 cubits x 40 cubits box.

What's a cubit? All I here is that a 'cubit' will be 'clarified' (i.e., defined) in the next edition of the rule book.
