2016 would see the first annual Cannonball GNCC at the Hill Family Farm in Sparta, Georgia and the stop would become an immediate favorite. While the venue was new to the world of GNCC Racing, it was no stranger to the off-road racing world, as the Southern Off-Road Championship Series has visited the property for a number of years. 

This course is pretty unique. The soil ranges from red clay to loamy brown dirt, a little bit of sand in places as well, and there are also a few areas with some rocks mixed in. This course also offers up a variety of slower, tighter trails, fast flowing trails, fast field sections, and everything in between. Overall, this is a course that everyone will want to experience! 

However, don’t let the beauty of the Hill Family Farm and the fun factor of the trails trick you, as this can still be a tough event. The fast sections tend to get rough as the red clay base can get hard and develop braking bumps into corners and acceleration bumps out of corners. As the race wears on, roots become exposed and can get pretty slick. There’s also a few low lying spots where mud holes will develop, and some small streams with large rocks in them that can be pretty slick. Regardless, even with these challenges Cannonball stands out as an excellent event and one of the most fun courses of the season.
