Looks good!
Since there's no transit to Santo Tomas, will there be a staging area near the start?
Yes, we will have a designated area in Santo Tomas for teams to unload cars from trailers and also stage prior to starting, it is a big lot inside of town near the cemetery, access from the highway will be guarded by course workers to show you where to go into the right street.

If you decide to drive your race car from your hotel to Santo Tomas i believe logistics for you will be much easier.

We will post the staging area map closer to race for teams to get a grip on how to do it.

Will it be possible to have our Mexican 4x4 chase truck transit from La Calentura to Trinidad after all race vehicles have passed.
They have no problem doing route if OK. Better then looping back thru Ensenada to San Felipe. Gracias

La Calentura Check closes at 14:54, after that it will be open for non-race traffic and your chase team can do the 38-mile trail to Valle de Trinidad.

Eliseo, Has NORRA made any arraignments to allow racers to bring spare tires and parts across the border for the race without paying import tax?

Mexico Customs has not changed its policies, we will send the Border Crossing information Alert next week with the instructions on crossing the border but it will be similar to 2019.

Here is what they instructed us in 2019:

All race teams and support vehicles should have a NORRA sticker on the windshield or visible, printed, NORRA logo on the dashboard. Mexico Customs will be in charge of receiving racers through the border crossing.

All vehicles should have the following documents in order and preferably in a folder ready for inspection:

  • Vehicle registration.
  • Proof of ownership, green sticker, invoice or DMV paperwork.
  • If the owner of race car or support vehicle is not present during crossing, driver must show photocopy of owner’s ID along with paperwork.
  • All vehicles need to have a license plate (except possibly race cars)
Have a list (and invoices) of all major spare parts (engine, transmission, wheel/tires). They must match the race car. For example, if the race car has an 8-cylinder engine and the chase truck has a spare 4-cylinder engine, it will not be allowed thru the Border duty free and you must pay taxes for those parts. Only four (4) spare tires per race or chase truck are allowed maximum duty free.

All spare tires must match race car tires and must be mounted on wheels. Any additional spare tires teams must pay taxes of 16% of tire value.

Vehicles with race car spare parts must go across the border simultaneously with race the car. No chase truck with spare parts will be allowed through the Mexican border duty free on its own.

Finally, No gas of any kind allowed through the border!
