Paid registration is required for any and all rider support crew to enter any bivouac.
Support crew members must adhere to safe, sportsmanlike and respectable conduct during the rally. Exsessive intoxication, rude or disrespectful conduct by a crew member reflects directly onto the rider and will result in prompt disqualification.

Meals will be provided to paid participants and their registered, paid support staff only. No un-registered guests may enter any bivouac.

RULES & TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS:
Our BAJA RALLY rulebook and technical requirements are currently being translated from Spanish to English and will be available in both languages for download form www.bajarallymoto.com on or after November 15, 2014

Fuel Range:
Currently, riders must have at least 150 miles of fuel range. A final determination of fuel range for BAJA RALLY 3.0 will be made on December 1, 2014 concurrent with the opening of Advanced Pre-Registration.

Minimum Requirements
Rider must attest to road book rally experience, and deem themselves qualified and capable of managing road book navigation
Road book reader: Must be electric powered
Odometer: Must be electric and adjustable
Electronic compass (GPS or cap repeater)


GPS REQUIREMENT: Pending Announcement
The policy with compliance tracking is under review at this time and will be announced definitively on December 1, 2014 with the opening of pre-registration. BAJA RALLY will either:
A. Require riders to record their own tracks on their own GPS devices (Garmin Units only)
B. Provide riders with a tracking device & service paid for by BAJA RALLY.

*Please note that participants will need a device to display their “cap heading” for any off-trail navigation and to confirm they are traveling in the correct direction coming out of selected course notes. Therefore, any GPS unit which displays the numeric “cap heading” in a large, viewable format is favored over units which have the numeric “cap heading” in smaller, harder to read format.


SPOT TRACKER:
Properly configured SPOT trackers are required and each rider must verify that he or she has a functioning device at registration.
***All participants must be able to demonstrate their SPOT Shared tracking page is functional to Baja Rally specifications during registration.



THE COURSE:
The course route for each of 4 days will remain a vague mystery until the evening prior to the first stage when the road book is handed to each rider after registration. The stages will be confined to within the boundaries of northern BAJA CA.
REGISTRATION & TECHNICAL INSPECTION:
San Nicolas Hotel in Ensenada.
8:00AM Monday September 28, 2015

INQUIRES:
BAJA RALLY at bajarally@gmail.com

The BAJA RALLY is the only navigation-based motorcycle “rally raid” to be held in Baja, CA, Mexico. Using the same navigation criteria based on the world famous DAKAR Rally and World Rally Championship, this 5 day rally raid will test the riders’ endurance, speed and skill, as well as their ability to read terrain and the road books given to them prior to each stage.

A few enhancements

A couple of things our team is doing to make the BAJA RALLY even better:

GRIDER TAKES THE WHEEL
ANDY GRIDER has accepted the post of Director Of Competition for BAJA RALLY. Andy has about as much rally experience as any other American racing today and one of a very few who have stood on a Dakar podium (2009). Andy will be overseeing the rulebook, course routes, road books and all of the course officials, excluding safety personnel.

NEW RULEBOOK
We have licensed the use of the RALLY PLAYERO rulebook and translated it into English. Rally Playero has been making competitive rallies in Mexico for several years and have just updated their rules for 2015 and allowing BR to adopt. The new rulebook brings a level of professionalism to BAJA RALLY. Now that we have proven to the governments of Mexico that we can do this safely, cleanly and with everyone's blessing, we can now develop the infrastructure of a world class rally. We should have both versions of the rulebook available fro download from our site by Dec 1.


COMPLIANCE TRACKING
We are in final talks with a 3rd party to provide standardized compliance tracking devices for all participants included in the price of entry. The device in question will do provide a reliable a fair method to calculate waypoint compliance and speed zones in real time. Additionally, the device can perform a host of other functions that make the BAJA RALLY safer and more enjoyable.
*The immediate result, when finalized, will be the competitive debut of this device next Sept, 2015 and that riders will not be mandated to bring only a Garmin device to the next rally.

How about Iritrack? well proven tech, also gives the rally more PR since riders can be tracked online by fans, sponsors, public etc.

We have considered it carefully and we are well acquainted with the North American licensee (IRC). Its just too pricy for our young, growing event.

We had some of the most awesome public tracking without using IRI track.

Perfect world stuff, we'd call IRI Track and tell them to send the units. Its not economically viable for a going concern like ours. Instead, we are being creative and careful to work with innovators who can do many of the same functions without the high-price tag.

I expect a warm response to the technology and devices we hope to deploy.
Most importantly, we've ID'd our event's greatest weaknesses and surveyed all the riders. That's all we are doing for the remainder of the year, to address and improve anything that wasn't considered top notch.

Thanks to our team for working together to make something great.

Currently dates I have a conflict with. Going to have to see about re-scheduling the meetings I have at the end of that week.

All the announced changes look good Scotty!
