The Bell Lexus North Scottsdale Copperstate 1000 is fortunate to have the involvement of many dedicated people and organizations, and in no area is that dedication more apparent than when mechanical assistance is needed. We travel with 4 professional mechanics and tow drivers with flatbeds. Our title sponsor, Bell Lexus North Scottsdale, generously donates new Lexus’ for use when your car just will not be able to finish the rally and our professional tow drivers with flatbed carriers are on-hand to assist with the transportation of not-so-willing cars.
Although we provide mechanical assistance on the road, a properly prepared vehicle is the responsibility of the driver. All accepted cars will be required to undergo a vehicle safety inspection prior to arrival. A certified mechanic is required to inspect your vehicle and sign-off that it is in rally ready condition.
No need to pack lightly. We travel with a U-Haul Luggage Truck (generously donated!) and 3 luggage handlers so all your luggage needs will be serviced. Drop your bags off in the morning and they will be waiting for you when you arrive.
