When do you think you will have an event packet available for potential teams to use for sponsors?

Would the teams of 2 or 3 need to include their own mechanic or will their be a road crew to assist all teams with any potential issues?

Yes - tied up with the prep work for the cornwall2capehorn project the last week - formal announcement of the event at the presentation tomorrow…

Elevator pitch and website are in process - sponsor messaging and team funding content to follow

Teams will need to be minimally self sufficient - part of the challenge is keeping the trucks going. All vehicles will have a baseline service and inspection to minimize major issues - and the chase/support crew is in place to ensure no team is left behind. Individuals with field mechanical experience are given priority placement on the support staff.

The lack of a professional mechanic on a team is not a handicap - basic mechanical comprehension and an aptitude for problem solving go a long way...

Sorry, swamped since last Friday and on the road the last few days.

Website secured and in development, promotional/info packet is done pending legal sign-off, proposed budgets are in place, and we have been in preliminary talks for film sponsorship this week…

We will be in Alaska/Canada in April, Aug, and Oct this year on routing/planning trips.

Any progress? It's hard to promote and or find sponsors without any hard information on the event.
