    Heard somewhere that qualifying would be a smaller loop near Ensenada, but I'm not certain.

    What's up guys?
    I'm hoping to make it out to this race this time around. I missed out on the 250 & the 500 from last year.

    If I go, i'll be going down to spectate. Possibly camp out Friday night along the course & then head back home Saturday afternoon.

    I hope to watch the race around Uruapan or Erendira. We watched it somewhere south of Ensenada once, about 7 miles into the desert/mountains from the highway @ night. I have no idea where the hell we were but we followed some other trucks in. It was an awesome spot.. Hope to find that spot again. Any recommendations for good spots south of Ensenada? Hopefully not too far south...

    Okay guys, the official map is out. I am thinking about going to watch the race from around Race Mile 100. Does anybody know if there is a 2wd friendly road that will take me there? Looking at the video below, it looks like if I follow the race course from Heroes de La Independencia, I'll be able to get there. Only thing is that it's a good drive in.
    I'm looking for a shorter way of getting to that spot, as well as getting back to the highway avoiding the race course.

    I'm looking to watch the race near the jumps at minute 14:45, possibly even further ahead, somewhere between there & minute 22:30.

    their is an access road that will take you to "Santa Catarina" roughly Race mile 85, from their it would be race course, also the big 180Degree uphill turn 1/4 mile after Mike Sky Ranch is always fun to watch and help out....but you are stuck their all day and the only way out is thru race course, but its worth it for sure!!

    Thanks for the input.
    Some guy from RDC gave me a google map of the access road at KM100.5
    It'll take you to either RM90 or so or to RM 105 or so.

    I thought I heard on the Dirt Live map overview that they said Mike "fixed" that hairpin turn so it shouldn't be an issue this time around.
