Ocala, FL (Dec. 16, 2011)—Baja-style racing is usually reserved for desert locations in the American Southwest and Mexico. But Legendary Excursions, the leading off-road experience provider in the US, has recreated the Baja Challenge experience in Ocala, FL and is now providing off-road thrills for those in the Southeast.
Offering a private track, Legendary Excursions allows thrill-seekers to drive the same Baja Challenge Race Cars that compete in the Baja 500 and the Baja 1000. Or for those who prefer a more relaxed approach to an off road experience they also offer 4X4 experiences and training.
The purpose-built Baja Challenge off-road race cars travel up to 100 MPH and have 18” of suspension travel, allowing them to handle some of the roughest terrain at speed. They also feature suspended seats, custom Subaru engines, fresh air supply to the driver and passenger, and a custom-built chassis and frame and onboard video and data systems.
To accommodate such a serious off-road vehicle, Legendary Excursions has built several Baja Style off-road tracks with varying degrees of difficulty complete with jumps, banked turns, steep inclines and more. Participants can opt to simply ride along with a professional driver, embark on a half-day experience, or go all out on an all-day off road experience behind the wheel.
Legendary Excursions adventures begin with an orientation, pre-run in one of the chase vehicles on the Baja course, safety equipment outfitting, and then its time to suit up for the experience.
