    ★ Dakar 2019 - Mapmen

    Speaking of maps, the Race Dezert schedule on the homepage doesn’t currently list the Sonora Rally or its dates..... As to the topic, I’m 100% with Hog on this. Navigation with only the roadbook is half the point/challenge/adventure of Rally Raid. Interesting that ASO singled out the one most...

    Yokohama Sonora Rally 2019

    It’s fantastic to see so many of the USA Sonora Rally racers rocking it in Peru:) I’ve been reading all the 2019 Dakar threads and I don’t think these folks on RaceDezert quite get it... any stage of the Sonora will KICK YOUR ASS, in a big way; that includes all the top racers at this years...

    Sonora Rally 2018

    Scott, many thanks and please don't take my above comment the wrong way. In hindsight it seems out of line and I regret making it on a public forum as I don't have all the inside data:(. Please accept my apologies. Dogfart and Shirley especially - you guys rocked it regardless - and you didn't...

    Sonora Rally 2018

    Second spelling correction "roached", not reached. Our rally raid G Wagen needs many more mods before we race again. The wives didn't approve the budget this year:(

    Spelling correction. !Jergensen! Not Jorgensen...

    Sonora Rally 2018

    Are you kidding me! You guys are beyond mortal men! For those boys watching Dakar come down to Sonora and watch the Jorgensen team! This is the North American grudge match of North American rally raid of the century (that's easy to say). Wonder if the Dogfart Buggy men are going to try and...

    2017 Sonora Rally

    Man, it's only May and we're already psyched when we think about running next years course. 2017 kicked our butts thoroughly - our mods will hopefully be beneficial for 2018. What will the Sonoy Rally Organisation do next year? We're hoping that it will be an old school, extreme...

    2017 Sonora Rally

    And kudos to the Jergensen's. Nothing can stop those two guys! Fearless, determined and talented! They ran the course faster than anyone, it just came down to opening a waypoint and that cost them the win. And they blazed the trail for everyone. Their lines were insane, especially in the...

    2017 Sonora Rally

    Well, we're back from Sonora in one piece although the shape of the piece is a little different. The new OM606a diesel motor exceeded our expectations and the G wagen held up incredibly well - ran super cool with all the new stuff. Our crew was awesome - all guys from Club G Wagen - took...

    2017 Sonora Rally

    For those that don't know, I believe Scott takes a personal pleasure in torturing racers on his course. When he says stage 4 may be the most diabolical stage yet for the rally, let's just say we are in for a hell of a ride.

    2017 Sonora Rally

    Just my opinion but I think the Sonora Rally organization is brilliant and the are going to supersede the Dakar at some point. Especially with the factory teams who just want to push their limits and test their cars in a true fashion. Who wants an encyclopedia of rules and restrictions intended...

    Sonora Rally 2017 - The Competitors

    El Mamito, Come on down and join us! I live in Santa Fe and James lives in ABQ. Our build is taking place in SF at the moment. Lemme know if you want to drop in and check it out. Sonora is perfect this time of year and it's warm. Help is needed al throughout the bivouac and during the day...

    2017 Sonora Rally

    Thanks Darren! Good news. I'm sure I can speak for all of the competitors in that we are really looking forward to this year's Sonora Rally... The fear levels are rising.... Wait til you see the rally raid g wagen this year - it's looking more like a Pug every day. Now if we can just do our...

    2017 Sonora Rally

    Scott, Many thanks. I'll wait to hear from Darren regarding the availability of diesel in Puerto Libertad. Curious; what satellite network did the RallyComp use last year?

    2017 Sonora Rally

    I assume there is a gas station in Puerto Libertad with diesel?

    2017 Sonora Rally

    Very cool. So now your assaulting our olfactory senses along with everything else.... Nice! My guess based on the northern desert bivouac cuisine of last year is ribeye. If we're the first to it were gonna eat it! Fuel for the rest of stage 4 (deduced by CAP and ODO)! Saving the most brutal...

    2017 Sonora Rally

    Oh man! We can't wait! 30 days to departure day! So what's the significance of the non-block number on the last digit of the km? Will we be seeing that in the roadbook?

    2017 Sonora Rally

    This year is going to be epically awesome. Some seriously seasoned and talented pros are going to be getting into a battle like they've never seen! For those of you on the bench I'd recommend you jump in. Waiting another year is just going to give the competition a significant experience...

    Sonora Rally 2017 - The Competitors

    Indeed it did and for exactly that reason! I actually need to make a correction to that weight. We put the car on wheel scales yesterday following our engine transplant and it now weighs 4500#. Fortunately it is a perfect 50/50 split front to back and shifts to the rear when we get in the car...
