Yea, The 1012 car was with our team, He is only 25, and this was his first long Baja race! also his Co rider was a 1st timer in the car!
He did well, starting back around 160?? We all had a great time!

We stopped to help Randy Wilson who experienced problems negotiating a turn south of Coco's. I think he finished first in his class.

Personally I don't think they should have allowed them to race between Gonzaga and Chapala. Too much other traffic.

I just noticed that Stella (on right side with red diamond) is doing its thing, alerting the occupants of the car that they are approaching a problem. No surprises = safer race.

For us Stella worked great...on the other hand some of the slow drivers did not know what the push to pass signal meant or they did not seem to care.

That rally looks like fun.

Is that your son next to the squid whisperer or a paisano?
