“ECORS is excited to visit McDowell County again for 2012 as the local community has been extremely welcoming and a major contributor to the success of the event at The Flats. The Rock Corps 4×4 Club has been outstanding to work with and have helped us bring this event back and make it even better than last year,” said ECORS co-founder Rob Klinger.
In its third season, ECORS is a traveling, endurance racing series that will be hosting five races at various Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) destinations in the Southeast in 2012, including North Carolina, Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee. Each class of vehicle runs separate courses depending on difficulty and has a designated amount of time to complete a pre-determined amount of laps.
The Flats, managed by Rock Corps 4×4, is a private, 45 acre OHV park located in Marion, NC. Upgrading the park specifically for ECORS racers and offroad rock crawlers, this year’s event will host more than 50 racers and more than 800 spectators.
