For years, the Jacume GP has been the crown jewel of CODE’s race schedule. The two-day event has long been the fan and racer’s favorite event since its inception eleven years ago.
Compared to other two race format events like Laughlin and Bluewater GP, CODE delivers a great racing experience that’s fun for fans with open camping, an infield jump or “leap” that puts others to shame, and a 20 mile Baja style course that’s fast yet technically challenging.
Fans come from all over Mexico and the United States for the truest, grass roots style form of off-road racing: camping in the pits, camp fires, bbq’s, and good times with friends, family and fellow racers. What we all love about off-road lives strong at CODE.
“We come every year!” said Michelle Bruckmann who won both races co-driving with her husband Vic in heat 1. “I got my start with CODE, and even though we’re busy racing in SCORE and BITD, we always make time to come back, particularly this race because it’s so much fun.”
Every year a few more discover CODE- the true spirit of racing Baja. Friends and family gather to have a great time racing, spectating and enjoying life in a way that seems to be forgotten at the state side races. A strong sense of community or even familia. This is why RDC continues to attend and cover these races.
CODE’s next event will be the ever popular Mexicana Logistics 300 held just outside Mexicali, MX. Don’t miss it!
