That was frustrating me, especially the GPS option, so I started looking into possible new harder sections for the Mexican 1000. The more I got into it, the more I realised we needed a whole new event. The Diabolical goes in the opposite direction as the Mexican 1000, i.e. it's super tough navigation and terrain (currently looks like 7 stages, 1400 miles). My hope is that I can get NORRA onboard with it. If not, I'll find another promoter to pick it up. But first I have to go prerun some of it to see if it's even possible.
