Windrock / Coal Creek
  • Race:
  • Season:
  • Venue:
    Coal Creek
  • Location:

    Oliver Springs, TN

The Windrock race will be a true endurance race that will test the drivers, cars, and team to its limit. Each class will have a time limit to complete a given number of laps, totaling 120 miles for C, 80 for B and 60 for A, U and V. Teams will experience wide open spaces, hill climbs, tight winding trails, tree dodging, rocks, and other competitors on the course. The team that navigates the course successfully and the fastest will earn top spots and be the fat cat at Windrock!

The course will be laid out in an area outside of the normal OHV area, thus opening up previously closed trails to our racers. Teams will have the opportunity to pre-run the course starting Wednesday Nov 2. ECORS highly suggests coming out as early as possible and get as many pre-running days in as you can since these trails are normally closed to the public! With the Last Chance Qualifier on Friday morning, teams should expect to be on site Thursday if they want a full day of pre-running since the LCQ will utilize a major portion of the course Friday morning.

Teams that don't get an invite or that are last minute decision makers will be allowed to run the LCQ on Friday, Nov. 4. If we have 20 open spots and 10 LCQ guys, we will still run the LCQ! You will have a time limit on the LCQ and will be 1 lap on the course to prove you and your rig are ready and capable (somewhat...).

New to ECORS - 2WD buggy class

Something new for this race will be the addition of a 2WD buggy class. This class will be there to capture the VW rail-buggy type of vehicles that are popular. We'll have multiple classes of these vehicles to allow for the high performance buggies to stay in the unlimited class and for the more stock type rail buggy to still be competitive. The 2WD rail buggy class must still fill out applications and send in for approval and acceptance into the race. Because there are no qualifier opportunities for the rail-buggy class, everyone in this class MUST fill out the application and send it in for approval. Like with all other classes, the LCQ will be available to teams that either don't get accepted or for teams that are last minute decision makers.


LCQ will be Friday morning. We will have LCQ registration open September 1. Anyone that applies for the Main but does not get an invite may select to utilize that application for the LCQ. We will notify teams if they are/are not selected for the main and if they wish, they may run the LCQ. The entry fee sent in for the Main will only be accepted if an invite to the Main is issued. Teams MAY utilize the Main application for LCQ registration. LCQ registration and entry fee is $50 for all classes Multiple runs can be attempted at an additional fee. LCQ participants must also be ECORS members. Single event memberships are available for $55. LCQ does not have a prize, payout, trophy, etc. other than to qualify your team for the Main race.
