‘NO SPEED LIMIT’ High Speed Runs at Phantom Hill – Saturday, July 20
The Saturday high speed runs take place approximately 15 miles north of Ketchum, in the scenic Sawtooth National Recreation Area (SNRA). This land is regulated and governed by the Forest Service and therefore has limited access to Sun Valley Tour de Force. SVTdF reminds folks who want to view the runs that they must follow all guidelines from law enforcement, event officials, and volunteers. It’s important to follow all safety precautions during the event, including staying 300 feet from the road when cars are running at top speed.
SVTdF is permitted to close a four-mile stretch of Highway 75 from 7:30am-3pm on Saturday, July 22nd for a maximum of 20 minutes at one time. When the road is hot, (participating cars traveling at high speeds on the road) it will be closed to North and South traffic. Once the road is open, cars will be allowed to travel through going both directions.
Spectators are allowed to view the event from Phantom Hill, there will not be any hosted restrooms, tents, bleachers, food trucks, or any services in this area. No parking is allowed on Highway 75 on the four-mile permitted stretch of highway.
