OUR PLAN is to be within 30 miles of Irvine Lake, with the our hope of returning to Irvine Lake.

Current COVID guidelines change almost daily, so some of what we know and don’t know is affecting our location announcement.

REST ASSURED we are actively working with our venues to create the best version of OTH we know how to create, while we are very aware of the community’s heal unitiy’s health and health management challenges for authorities.

THE MAGIC WILL CONTINUE- We have lived, breathed and loved the race day magic of Over the Hump at Irvine Lake, and we continue to be passionate about serving the Orange, Riverside, Los Angeles and San Diego racers that are family, with a central location.

We can’t wait to see you, our family, in July. Make sure you’re signed up for our email list to get the latest announcements
