Any news on dates? What are the rumors?
I sent Mike Pearlman an email a couple weeks ago asking about 2017 and I also asked him about lower entry fee for the vehicles and bikes that ran in the first Mexican 1000's. Haven't heard anything back so far.For NORRA for the 50th anniversary....how about a "suggestion" rather than a rumor.....
This last year we had what felt like a LOT LESS vintage iron......what if the entry fee for vehicles from the "Original Era".....1967-1972.....had an entry fee of only $1,967?
I thought I recalled motorcycles and UTV-side-by-sides had a lower fee and it would seem reasonable to have vintage iron the same so that it encouraged more participation.
I'm working on an original tagged '69 Manx.......we didn't have any last year and that's a shame.....
A LOT of teams won't have the resources for this. My bet is that not only is it going to be basically the same format as it has been but also expect less mileage on day 1/2.I have a crew ready for 2017, all are pumped and ready for a 7 day event down Baja, if we rest in Cabo and race back to Ensenada I don't know how many of the group could invest that many days.
