This what I was talking about.
(Spanish)
That’s an interesting article. I wonder what the crossover road looks like now that was used at the 400. I looked at the entry list for the last peninsula run it looked to be about 340 entries X 5k per entry = $1.7M. I hope they take care of the land owners and repair the roads, not only is it the right thing to do but they should have plenty of money to pay for it with not only the entry fees but sponsor money as well.

And that’s just one race of the four

Do we need to have tourist visas? Is there any other requirements we should be aware of going into BCS?

I remember seeing that it was absolutely necessary for the 250, we paid our fees, they never asked for registration or even glanced at our trailer and race car and waved us on in through some gate into Mexicali.

Technically to be in Mexico you need a tourist visa. It’s like car insurance, even though it’s the law, a lot of people don’t get it. And like a insurance, if you have a problem in Baja you will need your tourist visa. Specially if you have an auto accident your mex insurance will not cover you if you don’t have a tourist visa. Sometimes I stop and get it and sometimes I don’t but since this is going to La Paz, personally I will get mine for peace of mind.

Very good test of our Evo'd Boot. Much faster and more comfortable. We gathered a lot of data for our 2022 Zero Emission Baja 1000 attempt.

You got lucky! we have had a lot of problems crossing mexicali for any race besides the 250. have sat there literally for hours before while they tried to figure out how and if they were going to charge us taxes on everything!

recently we pulled in and the patrol stopped us, walked the truck looking at everything packed in and asked us to open only one box in the cab that had a throttle cable in it. Looked inside the box and waved us through.

I need to know the best way to get our helmets and suits tech'd before we go down to pre run as we plan on staying south and SCORES schedule conflicts with our pre run schedule.

Is there anyone stateside who can get this done before we head down?
