Tremont, PA (Oct. 25, 2011)—When one thinks of Baja racing, images of off-road race vehicles flying over desert terrain in the warm sun come to mind. Other thoughts could include dusty trails, parched topography…and falling snow?
Yes, falling snow. Legendary Excursions, the premier off-road racing experience provider officially announces their Winter Wide Open Excursions Program, offering adventurists the experience of Baja racing in the snow.
Rather than only offer only a seasonal experience when the weather’s warm, Legendary Excursions is turning the fun up a notch and staying open all year, guaranteeing a winter off-road experience unlike any other.
Nestled in the Pocono Mountains in Southeastern Pennsylvania, Legendary Excursions allows thrill-seekers to drive the same Wide Open Desert Challenge Race Cars that compete in the Baja 500 and the Baja 1000.
These purpose-built off-road race cars travel up to 90 MPH and have 18” of suspension travel, allowing them to handle some of the roughest terrain at high speed. They also feature suspended seats, custom Subaru engines, fresh air supply to the driver and passenger, and a custom-built chassis and frame.
To accommodate such a serious off-road vehicle, Legendary Excursions has built a serious off-road racetrack 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 experience behind the wheel.
Legendary Excursions adventures begin with an orientation video, pre-run on the Baja course, equipment outfitting, and suit up. Then, Legendary’s professional guides review the race cars, driver training procedures and safety equipment procedures.
A full day driving includes professional drivers instructing both driving and co –driving skills and techniques that make off road racing adventures legendary. Participants follow a lead guide car through sweeping turns, water crossings, technical sections and up and down hills that provide a challenge packed full of adrenaline. Mid-afternoon brings lunch served safari style overlooking beautiful mountain views, and the day is finalized with another spin or two around the long course.
