46th Tecate SCORE Baja 1000, Nov 14-17
 



46th Tecate SCORE Baja 1000

  • – November 14-17, 2013
  • – Ensenada, Baja Mexico
  • – Use Hashtag #baja1000

Some big changes this year including an 920-925+ mile loop, Bikes are starting the night before the trucks and they are running part of the course that hasnt been used in a long time!

This will be my 6th B1K and something like the 20th+ time Ive gone racing in Mexico. I love the atmosphere down there and cant wait to get back to Baja.

Of the several teams I have worked for some have picked up new trucks, and some have stepped down a class level to save money so I am not yet sure where I will end up, but hopefully back on a Trophy Truck team!

So who is planning to head down to Baja to catch the 1000 this year? Are any of you planning to race, chase or spectate?

I have only missed one baja 1000 in 11 years, and if i was not in the hospital i would have been there, even if it was to dump fuel.

started stock full
moved to class 8

The 2013 Baja 1000 course isn't a whole lot different than the first SCORE Baja 1000, in 1975 (I was there :) )... just reverse direction...

Very cool find. i was 6 and just mastering my bigwheel around the hair raising corners of the pool. and all i had was emulsion shocks at the time.
Cheers, thanks for a look at the old school map.

In 1994, the Baja 1000 started and ended in Mexicali!
