One of the goals is to make sure bikes and cars are not on the same piece of track at the same time. We have alternate routes and schedules for bikes and cars on day 1. On days 2 & 3 we will have suitable time gaps to maintain a separation.
Another thing we are doing is providing Spot Gen3 live trackers for all competitors, bikes and cars, at no extra charge. You can check out our live tracking links below.
We also will have weatherman on the air with two mountain top relays designed to cover the entire 3 day route system. We will be on 151.625 MHz. Would not be a bad idea to carry a small handheld VHF radio with you.
Rally Navigator software has been a big help in preparing our road books. We are using the Pro version and will be providing roll charts to those who can use them, again at no extra cost. Yet another reason to go ahead and invest in some good nav equipment. For next year, I hope we can adjust the event schedules so there is some time between our Mexican 500 and the Baja de Motos event (which sounds like an awesome event BTW) so those who would like to run both can have some time to prep between events.
