RACING IS BACK! This morning Ultra4 Racing released the following:
Just over 2 weeks ago we successfully held a US event with the 4WP Tear Down in Tennessee, an Ultra4 Europe event with the 2020 King of Britain, AND the first Ultra4 Australia event of the season.
Thank you to all the teams, sponsors, friends, family, core team, volunteers, and drivers who made this happen. It was an incredible time and it felt great to be #BackOnCourse all over the WORLD.
We’re excited to continue racing in a safe and competitive environment.
Big News #1: Venue Change for Sept 17-18
We are proactively announcing a venue change from Reno, NV to Area BFE in Moab, Utah. We are committed to ensuring teams and sponsors have ample notice of changes. With the uncertainty due to the impact of Covid-19 on racing in Reno, we felt it prudent to make this change now.
The race will be held on the same weekend (Sept 18 – 19), but now in Moab, UT, at Area BFE. We are actively working with the park to open up additional racing options to really test man and machine.
In addition to being extremely competitive racing, this is an exciting opportunity for teams to pre-run for NEXT year’s series race in Moab (see the 2021 schedule announcement below!). We believe this will be an outstanding event for 2020 and many years to come.
Registration is now open for all classes at
There will be more specific information to come regarding camping and a detailed schedule, but at this time there will be no spectators allowed on site.
We WILL be doing full live coverage at as well as on YouTube and Facebook to bring the race into households all across the world with an expanded regional race production team.
Team support, volunteers, and media will be allowed and there will be social distancing and safety guidelines similar to the Tear Down in Tennessee in effect.
Big News #2: The Crandon Labor Day Race is ON!
Crandon has officially announced that the Labor Day Fall Race is happening.
We’re invited and we’re looking forward to being there! Racing at the Big House in Crandon is a top shelf event in which we are honored to be participating.
In fact, we’re so excited, we have reserved a 19-bedroom hotel on the Lake and would love for racers to join us! Please reach out to Dave if you are interested in staying with the Ultra4 team while in Crandon. It’s going to be a BLAST!
Ultra4 will be highlighted with a Saturday night long course with new rock sections and a Sunday afternoon Red Bull World Championship race on the short course.
Crandon is also on the schedule for next year as a series race (see the 2021 schedule announcement below!) and this is a great opportunity to get to know the course and to show thousands what Ultra4 Racing is all about. Let’s go race the Big House!
Registration is $100 for the race and you can go here to register:

Big News #4: The 2021 North America Race Schedule
First off, KOH is the big question everyone is asking. We are actively working with the county and BLM to ensure a successful, on time event. We are excited and encouraged that 2021 will be one of the best King of the Hammers ever.
Secondly, Ultra4 North events will become official points races in the 2021 season, concluding with an Ultra4 North Champion in all classes.
Entering year 3 with this Northern regional series, we continue to see growth, commitment, and interest. We are excited about this next step in its development.
