NORRA (National Off Road Racing Association) was the first promoter of the original Mexican 1000 Rally in 1967. This rally evolved into today's SCORE Baja 1000.
NORRA and the Mexican 1000 Rally have returned to the Baja Peninsula, as of a few years ago, with what has become one of the best Off-road events of the year.
This year's Mexican 1000 starts in Mexicali, BC Norte and finishes in San Jose del Cabo, BC Sur and runs from April 27th through May 1st.
There are classes for vintage race cars and motorcycles and modern race cars and motorcycles. The vintage cars are really cool and the focus of the event. There are currently more that 125 entries registered.
The event consists of "Special Stages" run at race speeds and "Transit Stages" with time limits and other restrictions. Each day ends at a wonderful location in Baja and there are parties and meals that make the whole event the most fun you could possibly have in Baja.
There is also a charity Poker Run down the course that is open to any capable vehicle.
Jan and I will be taking our SMB down to support a couple of the teams racing in vintage classes. As crew members, registered for $60 each, we will be able to attend all the parties and events and have an awesome time camping our way down the peninsula.
I though I would put this out as an invitation to other SMB's to join us in the epic adventure. This is, as always better with 4-wheel drive, but 2-wheel drive accessible.
Is anyone interested?
