onX Offroad, a pioneer in off-pavement adventure navigation, is returning as the official mapping tool for the industry’s burliest week of off-road racing, King of the Hammers.
From January 26 - February 11, 2023, tens of thousands of spectators will descend on Johnson Valley, California, making this the most-attended off-road race in North America. Attendees can rely on onX Offroad to make their way around the OHV area’s 96,000 acres, catching the action and navigating the terrain around the busy racecourse.
After downloading onX Offroad, users can search for “Johnson Valley OHV” to see the ULTRA4 racecourse, the “streets” of Hammertown, pit locations, mileage points, spectator spots, and start and finish lines. They can also mark up the map to make it their own, creating routes and dropping Waypoints that indicate camp spots, meet up areas, and destination points–and easily share them with friends. Before heading to Johnson Valley, onX Offroad suggests attendees download the area’s offline maps so they can know where they are and find their way in the desert, even when far away from cell service and the event’s famous “Cellphone Bush.”
“Cresting the hill on Boone Road and dropping into the King of the Hammers lakebed is one of my favorite moments of the year,” said HammerKing Productions Vice President, Ted Livingston. “The dust is blowing, thousands of people are setting up camp, and by tapping into onX Offroad I can easily find my friends, scout the best spectator spots, and make the most out of the week.”
The official Ultra4 racecourse will be released on February 2nd, and it will be immediately added to the App’s basemaps for the Johnson Valley area. Spectators will be able to use this as a tool to navigate race day, to find the ideal spots, and safely travel between different areas of the lakebed.
To help maximize everyone’s race week, onX Offroad has filmed an abbreviated introduction to their app and how to utilize the features with the King of the Hammers event in mind. This Masterclass is hosted on Youtube and is free for anyone to utilize and learn from.
