RC4WD Uwharrie #tinytrucks Challenge Fall 2017
Sat, November 18, 2017, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM EST
BowHouse RC, Big Creek Rocks, GCM Racing and the Uwharrie Off-Road Training Center (UORTC) are pleased to present the RC4WD Uwharrie #tinytrucks Challenge, one of four events that we will be presenting in 2017. Building on the success of the GCM Adventure Series, the RC4WD Uwharrie #tinytrucks Challenge will incorporate a combination of trail events and team challenges for an exciting day of tiny trucking!
The #tinytrucks Challenge will use the same tech scoring and gallery voting as GCM Adventure Series, combined with event scores for the trail and team challenges. We are planning an exciting afternoon of team challenges, including a team time trial, team winching, team wrenching, and more!
Teams will consist of 3-5 drivers and can either be organized before or at the event. If you are planning to come solo, no worries...we'll be happy help you find other solo drivers to team up with for the team events.

4/29-4/30: GCM Adventure Series Uwharrie Spring Edition
6/10: Uwharrie #tintytrucks Challenge Spring Edition
