The sport of World Extreme Rock Crawling or W.E. ROCK is all about challenging driver and machine. Competitors build amazing vehicles to drive over the most extreme obstacles our world-renowned course designers can dream up. Spectators will see vehicles perform maneuvers you never thought possible. Conquering large boulders, steep climbs, rock ledges, and massive drops, all while avoiding strategically placed cones. Depending on the class the competitors choose to compete in their vehicle must follow some basic build rules and safety requirements. The rules are designed to keep each class fair while allowing the builder freedom to engineer the most competitive vehicle they can. Once on the course, the driver and spotter have 10 minutes to navigate 3-4 gates (set of cones) without hitting any cones and as few backups as possible. Each cone hit or backup they take adds points to their score and the team with the lowest score wins. The courses are designed to provide the most action for the spectators throughout the weekend and force drivers to push what they have built to the limits.

Each event starts on Saturday morning at 10 a.m. with the National Anthem. The competitors are lined up and ready to start on multiple obstacles at the same time. There are typically eight courses available to begin. The courses labeled A are for the professional classes, the courses labeled C are for the sportsman classes. You will see all kinds of vehicles on each course.
Each competitor will complete four courses on Saturday and four courses on Sunday. The best professionals will move into the Shootout course on Sunday afternoon to determine who the winners of the weekend are.
Courses are designed to be completed in ten minutes or less. If a driver fails to complete in ten minutes, they will receive points only for their progressive gates. Each course generally has elevation changes, crack lines, cone placements, and other obstacles designed to challenge the drivers and spotters.
On-site you will find food vendors, toilets, and plenty of sunshine (on a good day). Be sure to visit the W.E. Rock Events General Store for all your official merchandise – t-shirts, hoodies, caps, etc.
At the gate, pay your entry fee, and then follow the traffic flow. You will usually pass the W.E. Rock Events trailer first, please stop and take a look and ask ANY questions you may have. Then look around for the spectator safe areas to watch the action, almost anything outside the barriers is good. Rockcrawling is one of the few motorsports events that you can be up close and personal with the competition.
