Price: unlike all motor sports events in the US this race is completely open for everyone to see free of admission!
You will need to bring your own food drinks and gas!
Itinerary: Friday June 4th, 10am: meet at tbd. Spot and head down to ensenada takes about an hour and a half to get there. Arrive in ensenda and enjoy the prerace festivities which include contingency / tech inspection full of vendors drinks food music and all the race cars and bikes being paraded through. Around 4pm head out of ensenada and into Ojos Negros about 45 minutes to an hour away from ensenada I think we will be at race mile 30 or so. This is a good place to see the race because. Its about the only place where we can see them as they head south at the start of the race and. As the come back north towards the finish..
We will find a spot near the race course and set up camp tents and sleeping bags required!!! Barbe que some chow and drink up the rest of the night.
Saturday June 5th: Race Day!! Motorcycles and quads start at 6am will be at our spot around 630am. Trucks and buggies at 9am. Will be at our spot around 930 see cars go by for about 2 hours then we enjoy some beer and food till they start coming back prob. Around 4pm. They keep coming back all night...
Sunday: wake up pack it up and head home..
Safety: I know mexico is a red flag for everyone however it's only Tijuana that you need to worry about. We will drive past it on the toll road which runs along the border. Also during the race there is extra security everywhere. Even the remote area where we would stay is patrolled by the federales and military.. As long as we stay together we will be fine.
Not to mention also that my uncles know the mayors of tj and ensenada and the police chief! We can also get a race escort. They offer group escorts from the border down to ensenada..
It will be a lot of fun hopefully a lot of you are down!!! Post up any questions or if your down!
