    On Topic Who to get Mexican insurance with for the Baja 1000 ?

    I go through Baja Bound. I used HDI Seguros. This last time, I rolled me prerunner. Solo, no other vehicles. Mine was fairly straightforward, but still took the insurance a couple of months. I owned my prerunner, no lien holder. I've heard from other that had a lien holder, it takes a few...

    Chassis tag

    The CHP just issues the tag for VINs. In this case it was for a special construction vehicle. There will be no year. The DMV then will issue a registration, either plated or OHV. There won't be real information on the vehicle, and if it has been out of the system for quite awhile, there will...

    Bucket List; Prepping our vintage car for the vintage race

    The old cell did not have a bladder. It was a custom aluminum cell, most likely from the seventies. We never got an answer for using the old aluminum cell, so we went with a newer cell.

    MDR Settlement

    Will SCORE investigate the Caselli tragedy of errors?

    I don't necessarily disagree with you. However, I also want to keep desert racing affordable for all to race. I would gladly pay a few hundred extra per race for better tracking and emergency response. I know the Dakar entry is about 20k, but I'm curious what the actual tracking costs, so we...

    Will SCORE investigate the Caselli tragedy of errors?

    Dan McMillin said it best, at what cost to the racers. The Dakar Rally has a great system, but the registration fee is extremely expensive. Coming up with en expensive solution will most likely make it too expensive to race for a lot of racers. RIP KC66!

    Will SCORE investigate the Caselli tragedy of errors?

    I'm sure everyone involved did the best they could given the circumstances (remote location, poor radio coverage, etc).

    Group T and Turbos

    I asked some of the guys that always race BITD about the eco boost and why it is allowed and we cannot run the super charger. While they have no say so in us running the super charger, the eco boost is allowed because the turbo is installed from the factory and sold as a factory item on the...

    Vorra Yerington 300 May 25 - 27 Group-t side bet

    Exactly Sam! Our fuel line glitch cost us, and with no down time between the top 4 trucks, we couldn't close the gap between the leaders. That's racing though!!
