Joe Thompson and UFO concepts have created 1 bad ass single seat Ultra4 car and I was lucky enough to score just enough time with it before the big race on Friday to snap these images above #HammerTown, USA
Taking place in Johnson Valley, California The King Of The Hammers is an insane off road race consisting of some of the gnarliest terrain this world has to offer; Huge “G-out” whoops, high speed lakebeds, boulders the size of cars, Baja like silt beds, blinding dust, heat/cold, the list goes on. You can start to understand why this is my favorite event of the year. Its in the middle of “nowhere” and once a year a massive temporary city is built on the dry Means Lakebed. A city consisting of massive circus like tents, vendor trailers, racers pits, RV’s stacked on RV’s, Food Vendors, and A massive JumboTron Screen that provides live coverage of the weeks events as well as highlight reels between the action. Some have called it “The burning man for gearheads”. After spending 8 days on the lakebed, here are some of MY favorite shots.
