What is a Hare Scramble?

If you are relatively new to off roading and all things dirt bikes, then you may find yourself a bit bewildered at the sheer number of different races and what they are all called.

In short, Hare scrambles are cross country, off-road dirt bike competitions. In a Hare scramble, all the riders start in a row simultaneously, and the winner is whoever gets to the finish first. No staggered start, no time-trials, just every man, women or child for themselves until the end. Hare scrambles are competition events that are held all over the world. Races are differentiated by engine size and skill level, so it isn’t quite the ‘every man for himself’ racing that it was in the ’60s, although it’s still pretty darn exciting!

Hare scramble is a form of off-road motorcycle racing that varies in distance and time, with the riders completing multiple laps around a marked course through wooded or other rugged natural terrain.

Full Gas Course

Hare scrambles will be conducted on closed course tracks which will vary from 5 to 7 miles. The terrain will be wooded and fairly rugged in order to test the riders’ skills and endurance. The majority of the course will consist of a wooded, single and double width trail, with occasional pasture and sand crossings. An event may incorporate a short portion of a per-existing motocross track. The natural terrain tests the riders’ abilities to navigate through obstacles such as creek beds, logs, hills, mud, rocks and ruts.

Full Gas Off Road aims to provide a more open and flowing track, compared to a typical Hare Scramble.

The winner of each class is determined by who completes the most laps within a predetermined period of time.

Full Gas will conduct as least 1 hour and 30 min Hare Scrambles.

Full Gas Hare Scrambles will start with rows based on your class, with a dead engine start, in intervals of 30-60 seconds between rows.
