Making Sparks Together - March 2019

King of the Hammers RecapIMG_1227_fusion

We made the desert our home in February for the Ultra4 event known as the most-punishing race in North America – the 2019 King of the Hammers. A team of welding experts and the crew from LetzRoll Offroad Racing were on site all week to assist with repairs, and each pit stop along the course was stocked with ESAB welding and cutting equipment to help get drivers back on the road.

The ESAB tent in Hammertown was buzzing all week. Visitors had the opportunity to demo some of our most popular equipment, including the Rebel EMP 215ic and the Thermal Dynamics Cutmaster 60i. Some drivers even had the once-in-a-lifetime experience of watching Ian Johnson from Big Tire Garage perform repairs on their buggies. The Ladies Offroad Network also hosted a Ladies Day event at our tent for women at King of the Hammers to learn about welding and get under the hood for themselves.

Unfortunately Andrew McLaughlin from LetzRoll Offroad Racing did not finish the race. He was unable to see the course after the lights on his buggy were broken during a roll.
