Baja 1000 race coverage?

Hello all. I was just wondering what the best way was to keep up with the 1000's race coverage in real time?

None, zero, zip, nada.

There is a off road forum that has a webcast of the radio channel 151.625 aka: "The Weatherman". But Weatherman is a communication frequency used to pass information up and down the race course by race teams. Sometimes Weatherman will say something like first bike though check 5. You will not be able to find out who is leading different classes let alone who is in 2nd or 3rd or how far behind they might be. You will be able to hear some racer's girl friend asking Weatherman where her boyfriend's car is, and get to hear a someone with a stuck mic for extended lengths. You may be able to hear real communication like a class 5-1600 car needs an alternator at race mile 235. It can be entertaining at 03:00 in the morning when sitting in your chase truck for about 10 min, then its just stupid.

Hmmm.

That's strange. I could've sworn there was a website that showed where people where competitors were at on the course.

I thought I remembered keeping up with Ciampa when he soloed in '10.

But I am getting old. Memory's not good.

Thanks

You can track individual car entries in real time on the iritrack site. Most bikes do not have the real time tracking transponder and are only required to carry the iritrack recording device. Some guys will use a spot tracker so their progress can be followed stateside. But again there is nothing that could be considered "race coverage".
