Showing original equipment at event full of RV enthusiasts is always a good idea, showing at an event that tests the endurance of the hardiest of off-road vehicles might be considered a bit of a statement, as well
Perhaps that’s why Lance Camper Mfg. Corp. attended the 2018 King of The Hammers off road race last week, an event held annually in Johnson Valley, California, not that far from Lance’s Lancaster headquarters. The unique format of the race, the largest event of its kind in North America. combines high-speed desert racing of Ultra Terrain Vehicles with the brutality of the professional rock crawling; only 12 of the 118 UTVs entered finished the race, won by Mitch Guthrie Jr.
“This amazing event is spectator-friendly, drawing thousands of loyal off-road enthusiasts who camp in their RVs with family and friends and jump from spot to spot in their off road transportation of choice as they take in the action,” says Bob Rogers, director of marketing for Lance. “Jim Waters, Lance marketing coordinator, had a great time going from camp to camp handing out Lance swag to Lance owners and serving hot dogs from Camp Lance set high atop of Chocolate Thunder, one of the more popular yet tough-to-reach spectator viewing sites along the course.”
On display at the Lance/Hellwig/LGE-CTS Motorsports/Wirth Exploring base camp was a Lance 995 truck camper, the Hellwig/Lance 650 Rulebreaker SEMA build, a Lance 1575 travel trailer and a Lance 2612 Toy Hauler.
