Not sure if folks have seen the thread in the Desert Racing forums so I figured I'd post here too.
Please donate to help our injured MAG-7 pit support volunteers! On April 25th, Fabian and Alberto were fueling a vehicle at the NORRA Mexican 1000 race. Fumes from the gas (blow back from the fuel filler) were ignited by the vehicle and both men were engulfed in flames. Both men were airlifted to a hospital in La Paz to begin treatment.
Alberto suffered second degree burns over 20% of his body that may require skin grafts to heal. He has a family to support and does not have health insurance. Fabian is currently sedated in intensive care with second and third degree burns over 50% of his body that will require multiple skin grafts and surgeries to heal. As soon as Fabian is stable, he will be transported to Mexico City in order to be attended to by burn specialists. Fabian's recovery is expected to take several months, and he and his wife are expecting their first child this summer.
MAG-7 is a non-profit club made up of volunteers from the U.S. and Mexico. We have supported Baja races for 51 years without a major incident. Providing pit support for Baja racers is our hobby, and we do not profit from any of the races we attend. This is why we need your help in raising funds for Fabian and Alberto! Please contribute what you can and know that all donations will go directly to help our injured friends.
