Carrera Del Diablo was the historic first running of RallyVenture™, an exciting new motorsport that combines off-roading with orienteering, wayfinding, problem solving, testing of various skills, and social engagement. The course covered hundreds of miles of back roads, goat tracks and even some pavement, among the mountains, valleys and deserts around Sparks, Nevada. Poison Spyder would like to thank Jeff Knoll and his team for putting together such an awesome event, one which we believe has a very bright future that we're excited to be a part of and help it grow. Check out the videos at right for Larry's quick re-cap of the event from the historic Bucket Of Blood Saloon in Virginia City, as well as our clip of highlights from RallyVenture:
Check Out Our Photos From RallyVenture 2014!
Here are a few of the best photos we have from RallyVenture 2014. We wish we had more, but the RallyVenture itself kept us so busy driving, navigating, getting required photos and posting, that we didn't have much time to take the occasional non-required shot. But we managed to grab a few, so here they are, in chronological order throughout the day. "Mouse-over" to read the caption, or click on any image to see the original in full-size.
Congratulations Ryan Taylor For Joining the Reno Originals!
One of the cool things we did prior to RallyVenture was to offer up one of our entries into the event to a deserving Poison Spyder fan and his or her co-driver. The following video explains what we wre looking for and what the lucky winner of that "Golden Ticket" would get. Part of the selection process included gauging support from each entrant's friends and colleagues, and Ryan Taylor was the hands-down winner with loads of support from many respected individuals from all over the country and across the off-road industry. Ryan and his co-driver Doug Kennedy won the opportunity to be among the "Reno Originals" for the very first running of RallyVenture, and we also covered their accomodations for three nights and the steak dinner after the event. To top it off, Ryan was selected by his Reno Original peers in the RallyVenture as the Hard Luck winner, having suffered several setbacks throughout the day. But despite a few mechanical issues, Ryan and Doug managed to complete the course, and were awarded an Axial SCX-10 RC Crawler to acknowledge their perseverence. Below are the videos we released prior to the event to solicit applicants for this special opportunity:
