Off Road racing isn't nearly as risky as in the good old days. Now there is: satellite tracking devices, 2-way radio, satellite phones, helicopters, and the Weatherman up at the observatory.

What hasn't changed is what some of the stupid spectators and racers do on race day. You just can't fix stupid.

Come, watch the race and witness "natural selection" in real-time as a bonus ....

How close can I get to a racing Trophy Truck without getting killed?
Are there rules?
How about guidelines?

I thinking 1 foot away would be as exciting as I can take... but easy to miscalculate...
5 feet just seems too far...;)
How about laying under a jump... in a fox hole?
Too close?

I'd rather see stupid spectators killed than have them building hazards along the route that could kill a racer.

Inspection, start, and finish out of Estero Beach. It is going to be a desmadre.

Say a prayer for Chapultepec.

The good news is Costero won't be fuxored for five or six days. :)

Anyone going to be watching near race mile 180 or 190 or Borrego? Thinking about coming down for a couple days.

We'll be at RM173 helping Nomad Tunaeater. He is racing a bike and gets on there and gets off at San Matias. I think he is then going to the finish line so we'll probably head back to Borrego and watch the race for a while.

Camping? How do you access 173? Backwards on the course?

I know where that road is. Always wanted to see where it went. Thanks David.

It is how you can get to Cohabuzo Jcn. I went that way to get to Guadalupe Canyon from San Felipe. Back then, there was deep silt and it was really rough between Laguna Salada and Cohabuzo. That was in late 2001, probably after the Baja 1000 used it? It would have been faster to go around the long way on the highway and down the dry lake.

This map shows the two other ways to Guadalupe Canyon from the south.

We'll go in at Hwy 5 KM87. I'll be with the squarecircle (Roy). We may stay south of San Felipe the night before the race at Paul's dads place. Rudy and his neighbor will join us. Then we plan to head up to Mike's Sky Ranch on Sunday and out to El Coyote. Just checking things out for a Nov. trip a group of us are taking.
