    A new Baja: Edge of Control Racing League (XBOX360) is being planned by the Off-Road Racing League (www.offroadracingleague.org) and DiRTnation (formerly BajaEdgeTournaments: www.dirtnation.proboards.com). We hope we can launch this new league next year beginning in January. I would like your opinion about the next ideas and also I would like to know if you would join the league.

    These are the two main ideas so far:

    BAJA League (Idea 1)

    Two different series by class: Unlimited (TT, Class 1, Full-size Trucks & Mini Trucks) & Limited classes (Open Wheel, 4X4, Unlimited VW, Stock VW)
    Two different series by type of venue: Short Course and Point-to-Point

    Venues: (Possible dates just to give you an idea; races every other weekend except for the Baja 1000) Total of 24 races

    Laughlin Desert Challenge (short course)
    - January 17: Full Size Truck
    - January 31: Unlimited VW
    San Felipe 250
    - February 14: Trophy Truck
    - February 28: Open Wheel
    Short Course
    - March 13: Mini Truck
    - March 27: Stock VW
    Sky Ranch 250
    - April 10: Class 1
    - April 24: 4x4
    Short Course
    - May 8: Trophy Truck
    - May 22: Open Wheel
    BAJA 500
    - June 5: Full Size Truck

    - August 14: Stock VW
    Short Course
    - August 28: Full Size Truck
    - September 11: Unlimited VW
    Ensenada 250
    - September 25: Class 1
    - October 9: 4x4
    Short Course
    - October 23: Mini Truck
    - November 6: Stock VW
    BAJA 1000
    - November 27: Trophy Truck
    - December 4: Open Wheel

    Prizes for the Top 3 of each series (4)

    BAJA League (Idea 2 – Baja Ghost)

    4 different series, SCORE, BITD, HDRA and CODE.

    SCORE:
    - Laughlin Desert Challenge
    - San Felipe 250
    - Baja 500
    - Primm
    - Baja 1000

    BITD:
    - 5 races; which ones?
    HRDA:
    - 5 races; which ones?
    CODE:
    - 5 races; which ones?

    Baja Ghost (AKA BAJAMAN2) suggested that each series lasted 3 months with prizes for top 3.

    If you would like to participate in the upcoming Baja Edge of Control Racing League please go to: http://www.offroadracingleague.org/#/forum/4543230581,; then go to the "Baja Edge of Control League (XBOX360)" forum, and then click on the "Baja Series (Pre-registration)" topic and post a message with your gamertag.

    It is VERY IMPORTANT that we have an estimate of participants before we launch the league.

    Thank you very much

    I was just going to post about that! I was talking to Baja Ghost (Bajaman2) and he said maybe we should race on Fridays at 6pm Pacific Time; if that's cool with most of you. If you can't make it please let us know what time you can so we can set it up so it works for most of you.

    I will take that in consideration. Actually, I will run a poll (in the ORRL website) soon so we know what day it's better to race.

    Thank you for your feedback; please keep the ideas, suggestions and comments coming as all this will make the series better!

    Don't forget to Pre-register regardless of the day and time; I would like to know how many people are interested.

    How to pre-register: http://www.offroadracingleague.org/#/forum/4543230581,; then go to the "Baja Edge of Control League (XBOX360)" forum, and then click on the "Baja Series (Pre-registration)" topic and post a message with your gamertag.

    Thank you.

    You guys might make me have to put aside Forza and Battlefield and put my old copy of Baja back in...
