I've been talking with Pat and he's provided me with a lot of good information.It'll come up when I post about different topics.Get with Pat Sims, buy him a steak dinner (make sure the ice tea is all you can drink or he will break ya) and he will gladly give your a couple of years worth of experience racing Baja. Maybe chase for him as he is working with a great crew of people that have LOTS of Baja experience.
Are you going to race the truck at the 1st TDRA race in January? Hope to see it out there, dress warm!
Yes we will be in Notrees in two weeks. Really just using that as an opportunity to put a healthy shakedown on the truck and learn about it's limits and functions. More of a test n tune under race conditions for us. I agree on it being a little chilly! (should have left the heater in the truck )
@taquache_motorsportsthis pretty much sums it up..

whats your instagram name?
I'll definitely be looking for you at those races. I appreciate your help thus far on Baja and TORRA.
That is some good advise. I hadn't though about splitting the crew up after prerunning and setting up multiple "base camps" to cut down on some non-race drive time.We always get a rough estimate of how much fuel we will need for the trip then convert dollars to pesos just for that reason. it will save you money especially when you go through a lot of fuel. As far as hotels go, make sure to get them well in advance especially in the middle of the peninsula as those ones are limited and go fast. It's also a good idea to pre enter and get your wrist bands early for the 2nd and 3rd drivers if needed since they will most likely not be headed back to Ensenada after prerunning just to turn back around to do another long drive back to where they are getting in the race vehicle. For us it's better to post up and relax in a hotel closer to where we are getting in rather than wasting a lot of time driving back and forth. One more thing, we used Text anywhere at the last Baja 1000 and it worked great.
