The 2nd Annual IRC Carnegie Classic takes place at the legendary Carnegie State Park in the San Francisco Bay Area, this race attracts some of the world’s top competitors from all across West Coast, United States. These athletes, tackling a very steep 500 ft. face, race from the bottom to the top in this timed drag race that challenge the best of riders.
Being around for over 100 years, motoclimb is one of the original extreme sports for man to participate in, but times have changed, with many racers competing aboard 250 HP custom dirt bikes and flying up the rough hill at unreal speeds. In addition to the Pro racing, there is also classes for children and amateurs on stock motorcycles, which add to the fun and family atmosphere.
The weekend is full of racing and festivities. On site camping opens on October 6th, Friday morning, and ends with a fun Family Movie Night on Friday evening. October 7th is the Pro race day and will feature many different classes, including the Main Event.
The Main Event, which is 2 PM on Saturday, will feature the upcoming youngsters in the Flamingo 500, side by side Verticross action, a first ever Enduroclimb Exhibition, and the King of the Hill Championship runoff.
After the racing concludes, there will be a BBQ Fundraiser hosted by the California Off Road Vehicle Association, and will raise awareness on off road vehicle access in the state of California.
On Sunday, the day will start with a couple Pro classes, but be dominated by the many Sportsman classes. These Sportsman Sunday classes will be open to all ages for all types of bikes, and ends the action-packed weekend with a variety of racing.
Motoclimb is one of the most visible extreme sports for spectators, so viewing is not a problem. Upon entry, you will be directed to a parking area, and the base of the hill will feature a spectator area in front of all the action. We recommend bringing your own chair and shade if desired. If camping during the weekend, 90% of the campsites in the venue have great viewing of the hill.
Once you are parked, you walk no more than a 1/4 mile to the spectator area, where you can eat and use restrooms all in a concentrated area.
Even though camping on site is an option, it is not for everyone. The city of Tracy is only 10 minutes away, with numerous hotel options available not too far from the venue. The city of Livermore is only 15 minutes away, and there again are multiple lodging options available close by.
Located in between the San Francisco Bay Area and the Central Valley, Carnegie SVRA is a destination race because of the many travel opportunities existing so close by. San Francisco is less than 1 hour away, with Yosemite National Park only being about 2 hours away. A little closer lies the little town of Livermore, only 15 minutes away, that is home to world famous wineries and a buzzing Downtown District.
