There were parts they were really fast...other parts they had problems. Article says no mechanical problems...but I saw the engine out of the red one in Bahia de Los Angeles.

Thanks. It is a cool event. Much better run than the SCORE events IMO. https://www.norra.com/mexican1000.php

HA!

Lower car count.

How many bikes?

Higher entry fee.

I guess it might be easier to run the event.

Get 20- 30 trophy truck drivers together (like score) and see how easy your event runs.

Goes to show jow much some people think they know. We run both Score and Norra. Norra is cheaper. $3500 entrance fee. Over 200 cars and 46 bikes. The organization of the race has nothing to do with how many trophy trucks there are. If anything organizing a 5 day race is harder than a race with no stops. Lastly, before you think any race is easy....try it first.

The spirit of the event was to bring out the vintage vehicles, and to have multiple days of fin getting down the peninsula. Obviously the Trophy Trucks bring a lot of interest, but they kind of screw up the course for the little guys. I was disappointed that they upped the max tire size a couple years ago. I was wondering how that has affected things for others.

Also they have been running the bikes on a different course, but only certain days it seems. I like the idea of keeping the riders safe, but it seems inconvenient for a few reasons. I've been wondering how that has worked out, and the reason for it.
