Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines and get ready for some high-octane action.
Off Road Motorcycle Racing comes to Vernon this weekend as Silver Star Mountain Resort hosts the Bannister GM Rev Limiter Hare Scramble and the Vernon Motorsports Tap-Out Endurocross. According to Silver Star officials, the resort is one of only three of its kind across North America to host Off Road Motorcycle Racing, which means it is expected to attract hundreds of racers from across the Pacific Northwest.
Endurocross (EX), is a hybrid motorcycle competition, a mix of Motocross, Trials, and Endurocross, held on a closed course the size of a hockey rink. Riders negotiate rocks, logs, loader tires and numerous other obstacles while they race head to head. Hare Scramble (HS) is a form of off-road motorcycle racing, with the riders completing multiple laps around a marked course through wooded and rugged natural terrain. An extraordinary feature of the Rev Limiter HS is that racers will negotiate the EX course at E Lot, each lap.

The Vernon Motorsports Endurocross will be held at E Lot 1 p.m. to 5 pm Sat.,Sept. 23.
The Bannister GM Rev Limiter HS will be held on Sun.,Sept.24 and is part of the Pacific North West Motorcycle Association (PNWMA) series. The race has also been designated a national event by World Enduro Canada (WEC).
