here is prices from just ONE of the tour groups running in baja

General Pricing:
3 Days - 4 Nights $1895
5 Days - 6 Nights $2895
7 Days - 8 Nights $3795

and thats just that.. a tour .. not a race

if you look up how much the entry is for the vegas to reno and times it by 4 this race is just about even cost wise only it runs the peninsula !!

You can add another $400.00 for the Mag7 pit crew and around $200.00 for fuel.
I rode the event 2 years ago when the entry fee was $1200.00 and with travel expense and motel rooms, I spent about $3000.00...

why pay 400 bucks to people who arent there? This year there will be a camping bivouac.. tacos are cheap.. team up with someone for gas and expenses

look at it as a vacation... with a race

Planning on skipping mag7 this year and just getting a bigger tank. Infuriating how useless they were.

I'm going with 6.3 gal tank w/Pemex stations and no Mag 7 after the horror stories I heard...............That is if I get to race.....seems to be a snafu with my sign up. They are telling me that they didn't get my payment when I got and email from them saying they did ......More importantly have not got to pick my race number because of that.....that's the most important thing outside of beer right

Yes agree would rather spend the money on a larger tank and have something to show for it. I was one of many of the unlucky guys that ran out of gas mid stage. Not again.

From this:



To this:



Motor & tranny gone for re-build, chassis ready to go for media blasting. Going to have a ton of aluminum work, wiring, and I guess just a lot of work before we take it to Mexicalli.

I cant wait to race against the Blazer this year, its by far one my all time favorite off road cars. One of the coolest things about NORRA is that there are cars running today, that competed raced each other in the old days.

Sway-away is making new torsion bars front & rear. The car is being brought back to the 1974 car when Scoop Vessels & Bob Gordon raced it, It will be all black with the gold Vessels Stables logo. In 74 it ran re-buildable Gabriel shocks, there are Rough Countrys on it now which are just about the same thing. They will prolly get painted Gabriel white and run after re-building. The car has 10 inches of travel in the front & 11 in the rear. Here is a pic of the rear torsion bar suspension:



The silver can in the pic holds the water jug for the drinking system.

We are still waiting to hear if Malcolm Smith will be one of the drivers or not, he is supposed to have back surgery in the next couple of weeks or so.

Thanks for the perspective. I guess I've been out of the racing scene for too long.

I am definately a klr type person (having never owned a klr) I'm way too cheap to pay for a guide on just about any place on this planet.

Fuel capacity will not be a problem.

Who knows. Maybe WI will submit a team 2wd.

Motorcycle entries are already at 25! Going to be a big increase in participation this year I reckon.
