What is the DP4 Racing Championship?
Established in 2018, Desert Productions 4 is happy to present their SXS Off Road Championship which features cross-country desert racing at locations all across the southern California desert. Aimed at providing a low barrier to entry experience, the DP4 Racing Championship allows SXS owners the chance to get their feet wet in racing, while experiencing a family friendly low-stress atmosphere.
What do the DP4 courses look like?
With course loops ranging in length from 20 to 50 miles and average race times aimed at 2-5 hours, the DP4 Racing Championship makes for a fun, fast paced, single day racing experience that will welcome drivers and family alike. Bridging the gap between the high dollar 250-mile plus races, and the fun recreational weekend warrior experience, DP4 Racing aims to provide a relatively low cost option for the casual SXS owner to get their feet wet in racing.
Generally, DP4 events see teams that are based around families. It isn’t unusual to see a father-son, husband-wife, or even brother-sister team take to the startline. With one central location at all of our events, there is no need to bring multiple pit crews, additional chase vehicles, or even aircraft support as our events are easily accessed by all and you can even camp FOR FREE right at your pit!
When and where will the races happen?
After launching in 2018, the DP4 Racing Championship focused it efforts in hosting 6 ground-breaking events in 2019. Starting with only 5-entries at round one, DP4 Racing as happy to report over 30 vehicles taking to the startline in the 6th and final event of the year. Following, in 2019, the series continued with 5 events hosted in locations across the Johnson Valley and Spangler Hills OHV areas despite industry crippling covid-19 related re-schedules and cancelations. Spread out equally throughout the year, the DP4 Championship gives drivers and racing families the chance to split up their racing expenses and truly follow the series without breaking the bank.
