The same uncrowded location:
02/28/14 Friday - San Felipe Baja 250 Contingency - Hang out at camp or explore San Felipe - Contingency is the pre-race festivities and technical inspection of the race vehicles. There is plenty of raucous action, food and drink on the Malecon and an opportunity to get up and close with the racers and their cars - you can also choose to stay on the beach and relax around camp - a short drive out into the desert to watch the racers test their cars is an afternoon option - late comers can meet up with the group at camp.
Contingency on the Malecon:
03/01/14 Saturday - San Felipe Baja 250 Off-road Race - For those interested, we will get out on the course around Race Mile 4 to see the race up close and personal - Motorcycles and Quads start at the crack of dawn - Trucks and Buggies start around 10am - 4X4 is not a bad thing to have on this adventure, but on the other hand we will probably be parked next to a 1972 Pinto and a 2wd '89 Ranger - we won't leave anyone stranded and I know all the sneaky ways out to the course - After the racers all pass by, we will saddle up and make our way south towards Puertecitos - maybe catch some more race action depending on the course - then on to Gonzaga Bay to camp for the night. The road to Gonzaga is paved all but the last few miles and is very scenic.
Robby Gordon's Trophy Truck at Speed:
03/02/14 Sunday - Enjoy Gonzaga Bay - Swim - Paddle - Fish - Eat - Drink - Tan - Get lucky and swim with a Whale Shark - Just get Lucky - Do whatever you want! - There is a Bar, Restaurant and Hotel called Alfonsina's where we can have a great dinner and party in the evening. Last time Jan and I were there... Sorry what happens in Baja, stays in Baja!
