Fallbrook CA 2/15/2011 – Beau Baron wins the iconic Adelanto GP in the ATV Expert Class.  Roll Design dominates Adelanto GP with 4 Top 5 finishes.

Racetown 395, in collaboration with Off Road Sports, announced in late December it would take over the 30-year motorsport event, after the former organizers last year said they could no longer run the race amid budget issues.  However, after an agreement with the city of Adelanto the race was back on for 2011.  Off Road Sports, LLC management set out to put more structure and safety built into the Adelanto GP racing. The goal make the event fun for everyone while preserving the overall feel of races past, FAST and FUN.

Saturday would host the motorcycles finishing up during the Sunday morning races, where Sunday afternoon hosted the ATV’s and UTV’s.  The ATV Expert field had a very familiar feel, as many of the WORCS regulars were present for the afternoon’s race with 14 entries on the start.

Beau Baron, Roll Design/Elka/MCR rider fresh off his win from the Taft Big 6 in the ATV Expert class entered the Expert ATV class, as well as running his dirtbike in the 30+ class in Saturday’s race.  Saturday’s race would give Beau an advantage over the rest of the field giving him a look at the rough sandy rutted conditions the desert landscape of Adelanto, CA would create for the off-road racing sections of the course.

“Saturday’s dirtbike race was kind of uneventful, I got the holeshot and that was the end of that.” – Beau exclaimed after his win in the 30+ Dirtbike Class.

The ATV Expert race on Sunday included many of the WORCS series racers.  Beau would be joined by his Roll Design/Elka/MCR teammate Davi Haagsma, who would take the early lead getting the holeshot for the iconic Adelanto GP.  Beau would waste no time getting around his teammate, passing him quickly within the first few turns.

Can-Am’s Jeremie Warnia, winner of the WORCS round #1, displayed the horsepower of the DS450 passing both Haagsma and Baron in a straight away during the early part of the race.  Warnia’s lead was short lived, as he came up short on the pond jump, landing in the water, handing the lead back to Baron.  Baron got in and out of the pits smoothly keeping his lead giving him the win for the 2011 Adelanto GP.

“ I took the lead back and just kept charging to get as far away from Warnia as I could”- Beau Baron

Roll Design/Elka/MCR Teammate Davi Haagsma made a strategic decision to not pit as an intense battle erupted with east coast’s Jarrod McClure Roll Design/Yokley/Costal Racing.  The decision did not play out as expected and McClure would finish on the box in the 3rd position. Haagsma settled for fourth followed by Mike Cafro, Roll Design/Elka/MCR teammate in the fifth spot.
