FCR Motorsports will be down there but not racing. I will be going down on thursday morning and will be prerunning the first 50 miles or so. If any of you want to prerun the start with me let me know I would like to do it with someone else for safety. I will also just be chasing/messing around during the race so if you guys need help I will be there.

At this time we are really waiting to see how they perform at the 500 before we make a decision about next year. If we do have a UTV class next year it will run the 3 Baja races only. I believe it would be way to dangerous to put you out on the other courses.

Sal


I asked Sal at SCORE if we would be running all the events next year or just the ones the ATV/MC race. Looks like it will be a 3 race series next year (San Felipe 250, Baja 500, Baja 1000)

Looking at SCORE's website they only have 2 UTV entered. Is anyone else going. Mine won't be ready until next season but I hope SCORE get more people signed up and makes it a class for next year. We had 17 at the last race and only 2 at the Baja 500. I know there will be some late min. entries. I hope we get more the class 11 (stock bug)

There are 4 teams that I can confirm. 1801 Team Toxic Rhino sporting a V-Star powered machine. 1802 Francisco Quiroz of Mission Viejo Ca. 1803 Team Ranger Performance in the custom built Polaris !!! 180? we missed the number dead line. Team Desert Toyz, Side by Side Action Magazine, Elka Shocks, Black Rhino, Poweroll, ACRO HID Lights, Yamaha Rhino.

My plan is to finish in 17 hours and 40 minutes. My Rhino is hungry! and will be ready to CHARGE across the rugged Baja pennisula. With 30hp and almost 9" of wheel travel it will be an ADVENTURE !!! Oh yea we will also be starting last of over 400 racers, I belive their plans will be not to get caught by the UTV's. Look for us in our Yellow Rhino. Thanks to all the UTV Teams that show up. Cory S

I heard the UTVRA will be there with a support/chase white Jeep Cherokee to help all the UTV Teams. Outfitted with 3 radios and GPS they will be chasing and supporting all of the UTV teams.

Cory, you are correct. I will be at the 500. I will be chasing the class and offering radio support to all teams competing. I will be monitering both the UTVRA frequency and the weatherman frequency. I should be getting into town early Friday Morning. Let me know if you guys need any thing.

Baja 4000 in 2007 in planning!

It's official! SCORE is planning to hold a marathon Baja race in 2007, the BAJA 4000 will run from Ensenada to La Paz and back! Over 4000 kilometers, all being planned with state officials in Baja Norte and Southern Baja Mexico. More details loading...

I found this on Baja News website. I hop they let the UTV in for this race. I can't imagine how many hours this race would take. But I am willing to try it next year.

so they are calling it a "4000" ? in 2000 they ran to la paz and back and called it Baja 2000. I think doug fortin won overall. Hey Cory how many miles did your rhino have on it when the motor popped? my guess is approx 1000 race mi, was the rhino brand new for Vegas to Reno?

Good luck to everyone going down there. What I am hearing about pre running reports that the pine forest area about 30 miles in to the race is really tight,rocky and traffic will be backed up in this area. Sounds like a great area for the UTV's to make up some time. I want to see some pic's of a UTV bumping a Hummer or a buggy to pass.
