The Martelli Brothers are bringing a new off-road race event to the Barstow area this fall. The race will be called the California 300. Barstow has long been popular with off-road racers. The California 300 will feature 40 classes, pre-running, a poker run and desert clean-up.
“We’re thrilled to be promoting this new event in California, in the heart of an area known for some incredible racing history and lineage…and for being a constant testing site for the off-road industry. We’ve shot hundreds of commercials and off-road product tests in this area over the past ten years. Barstow has the perfect mix of challenging race course, good pit access, and lots of land for camping and spectating. Add to that the amenities like the local hotels, cell coverage and freeway access and it really hits all of the key components we need for a successful event,” said California 300 CEO, Matt Martelli.
The race is expected to take place on a newly mapped 75-mile racecourse and will be four laps. Unlimited trucks will get their own dedicated race during the event. Dates for the California 300 will be October 12th-16th.
The Martelli Brothers are the current producers two popular races– The Mint 400 and UTV World Champions
