2013 Torture Test November 16

DPS Team,

This is the first announcement pertaining to the 2013 DirtRider Magazine Torture Test.

When:                  November 16th, 2013

Where:                 Racetown 395, Adelanto, CA.

What:                    DPS will be providing technical services at this event. We will be performing  the official sound testing for all of the teams and we will have a few additional activities available in our area.  I anticipate a very busy first half of the day, 8 AM – 12 PM.

Public Information:         http://www.dirtrider.com/features/dirt-rider-torture-test-2013/

Information for our guests:         I expect that the morning hours will be very enjoyable for people to view as several activities will be going on and the track should be perfect for photos.  It is somewhat common for wind to be an issue in the late afternoon, therefore guests should be advised of this potential consideration.  It is my plan to have an area set up for our VIPs and friends.  I am going to have an area near our pit for our friends who ride out can store their riding gear.

Due to my technical support activities and a busy schedule I am not planning on hosting a meal or an official social hour.  Our guests and friends should plan on being self contained.

Team Information:        I will have our support trailer present and I will also have our Endurocross sponsor display present, however this event is not part of DPS Technical Motorsports 2013 Endurocross activities and I welcome other guests to attend.

DPS will not be entering a team in this event as our last event of the 2013 Endurocross season is the following weekend in Las Vegas. I will have at least one “Photo Bike” available for photos.

I plan to go out to Adelanto on Friday November 16th to set up our area. With this in mind, please know that I will have limited communications on 11/15/13.

More information to come.

Dirt Rider – Sound Testing the Big Bore 4-Strokes



In the very near future, noise will be an enforced competition rule, period. This is what the experts tell us. Some people argue that a “closed course” machine should not be subject to strict noise limitations. However, noise regulations for competition have been on the books for a long long time. The popularity of big bore four strokes has brought the issue of noise up to the forefront of land use discussions, even on private property. Another reason for considering noise is because most motocross bikes eventually find there way to the open country and can make serious impressions on neighbors and voters. The fact that noise in our sport could drastically limit where and when we can ride, should cause us all concern.

Starting in the later part of this year, 2003, DPS Chemhelp will have a Tech Inspector Certification Class on environmental protection, and noise abatement. About a third of the class content will be on general environmental awareness and mitigation relating to fuels, oils and chemicals. The other two thirds of the class will be set to certify a Tech Inspector on how to properly perform a sound check. Upon completion of the course, you will get a certificate, a card, a reference book, and there will be some other perks associated with the certification. This class will be on a National Schedule, and have various sponsors to be announced. The class will cost less than a hundred dollars, and will have various co-op sponsors that could really bring the price down. We do know already that the Honda Riders Club has offered some assistance. Chemhelp will be at various events throughout the year doing complimentary sound checks. Chris will also offer clinics on how to repack and service silencers.

Many thanks from Dirt Rider to Chris Real for his help in this sound testing and education. For more info on Chris Real, his sound technology, and other environmental issues, visit him at www.chemhelp.com.
