*Roger Norman has already blown off this race! 

Roger will race this years Baja 1000. Why? Because he has sold the sanction. Rogers own words, "We put together a family race team for this years 'SCORE event'. This will be a huge bucket lister for the whole family. My brother is the Driver of Record and our brother in laws will be driving as well. We are really looking forward to a great family photo at the finish line. I will be co-driving 40 miles of the race with my dad at the wheel."

The KING of BAJA 1000 LIVE! Event has designed and finalized this year’s race course coverage!

  Starting and finishing in the heart of Ensenada in front of the historic Riviera del Pacifico Cultural Center, the course travels in a counter-clockwise direction. It includes the approximate 20 mile stretch to Ojos Negros which is used in both directions. Outgoing, the course heads south from Ojos Negros through Santo Tomas and then runs along the picturesque Pacific Ocean for over 100 miles and then back across to the center of Baja California Norte. The approximately 830-mile course covers both sides of the peninsula and includes four checkpoints. The race will have its normal start from Ensenada to Piedras Gordas, then out to highway 3 around Rm 20.7 and will go to Km33 and get back on the dirt. The course will go past Rancho Grijalva to El Mezcal and head to Uruapan using La Lagrima Rd, a different road than in past years. From Santo Tomas, the course heads to the coast of the Pacific Ocean and runs down to San Quintin, Nuevo Odisea and then to El Rosario. The course will travel up the well known hill La Vivora, el Arenoso, and will loop around from San Juan de Dios at approximate Rm305 to El Metate Rm 340, Los Martires Rm 363 and go back to San Quintin on the east side of the highway and run north to Col. Vicente Guerrero, Jaramillo and Colonet. The course will travel a new route from Colonet to Llano Colorado and across to Valley de Trinidad. The race course goes along the highway from San Matias to Villa del Sol then crossing the highway at El Chinero, north to Coabuso Junction and then climb up the summit in the opposite direction as previous races from the desert to Nuevo Junction and on to Catarina. From Catarina, it will be back to Ojos Negros and from Ojos Negros back to the finish line. The four checkpoints will be located at Santo Tomas (CP 1–race-mile 87), El Rosario (CP 2–rm249), Vicente Guerrero (CP 3–rm457) and Nuevo Junction (CP 4–rm730). Pre-running will 'officially' open on Saturday, October 22, allowing competitors nearly four weeks of practice time on the official race course.

***INSIDER details*** HERE>>> 

UNO! First of the INSIDER details...the racers are sick of the fake Baja 1000 'qualifying' at SEMA! The stupid dog and pony show that wastes valuable course work and race prep time. The amateur timing, leaving no illusions that any team that shows in Vegas, has money and time to burn! Not mentioning those teams are also burning up their chances to compete and win in Baja.  

Here's the lead-up to last years coverage!

***What do You think the Baja 1000 is?***

Most know it as a desert off-road race. The pure racers.  They also know about the carnage!

The colossal event mismanagement by SCORE has caused the racing to change. The racers now know to plan for contingencies on their own. That's the greatest threat to Baja racing and the international visitors/racers in the Republic of Mexico.

Last years race concluded with the entire group of Trophy Truck drivers (the country clubbers) talking among themselves, seeking answers, then a boycott. The boycott of the series of races put on by Norman, culminated at the last event, the Rosarito race.

None of the real Trophy Truck owners showed.

The racers are tired of the mismanagement of the sanction, SCORE International.

Pre-Running Reports BAJA 1000 2016 KING of BAJA

The KING of BAJA 1000 2016 Pre-Runs!
Gary Newsome

Course slows down quite a bit after RM 300 to lots of silt then onto technical rocky sections. Some new trails that haven't been run before. Around 300 starts some good silt beds and once those are done some gnarly rocky sections that were similar to the summit. Finished at RM 410 today. Getting a late start after some repairs from the backside of summit last night.  

Going to be some course changes (no more reverse summit challenges) so that means lots more marking to redo a couple hundred miles. The idiots at Score International are working to fix their problems now! 


Yesterday was the gnarliest hill climb I've ever done and especially at night. Going up the summit backwards at night was a challenge with 2' shear faces. Driving it like a 2wd keeping momentum going 15-20 mph up the summit Backwards! 

Silt beds were also pretty intense from previous races with good ravines on both sides. We broke a tie rod in the worst spot possible right at top of the summit. Luckily we got an assist and took our tie rod down the summit and came back with it welded up ready to get down the front side of summit. 

A couple other TT racers were unable to make it up the summit backwards in there high-powered 2wd prerunners.
