New Sponsorship Deal Announced, Baja Rally

ENSENADA BAJA CA MEXICO- announced a sponsorship deal with Multitool-USA Racing to support the 2017 edition of BAJA RALLY, North America’s fastest growing off road rally-raid for motorcycles and UTV’s, October 9-14. The 1-year deal includes Multitool-USA co-hosting a mobile “courtesy shop” at technical inspection and each of 4 remote bivouac locations to provide a virtual fabrication workshop for all entered racers and their crews. At the heart of the new partnership and courtesy shop is the Multitool USA Belt & Disc Grinder that has been showing up in supercross vans and fabrication shops worldwide.

Additionally, future Off Road Hall of Famer and Baja racing legend Steve Hengeveld will defend his back-to-back BAJA RALLY Championships under the Multitool USA tent along with veteran racer and Multitool USA co-owner Joe Bolton. Rumors have swirled that Hengeveld will make his UTV debut at the upcoming BAJA RALLY although Hengeveld’s camp would not confirm this at press time.

BAJA RALLY founder & chairman Scotty “Breauxman” Bloom expressed his enthusiasm about the news that the deal had been finalized.

Steve & Joe are both stepping up in the name of competition and to support our entire sport”, said an elated Bloom, “Henge keeps winning in Baja and Multitool USA’s support with Joe’s UTV effort proves that their families share our affliction for multi-day rally racing. They are all part of our rally racing revolution.”


Dubbed “The Ultimate Finishing Tool”, the Multitool Belt & Disk Grinder is a favorite among mechanics and technical experts as an all-in-one, portable fabrication solution for race teams and shops. The units are found in semi-rigs and box vans at virtually every type of motorsport race you can think of. Multitool’s Australian heritage dates more than 3 decades and Bolton’s team has branded the machine as a must-have tool for motorsports racers and their crews.

“Everyone we race with either has one or wants one in their rig”

The enthusiastic Bolton explained from Multitool-USA’s headquarters in La Mirada CA, “We’ve been a racing and supporting BAJA RALLY from day one and can’t wait to race again. We’re also giving a Multitool to the winner of each class at the next rally.”

The idea for the BAJA RALLY “courtesy shop” came from the event’s “racer-experience” team whose mission is to enhance the effects of the BAJA RALLY’s dedicated volunteers, contractors and engineers to deliver a memorable, safe and convenient experience while maintaining the adventure and challenge that comes from a week long racing odyssey through the desert.

In its fifth year of operations, BAJA RALLY is an eco-adventure competition where motorsports athletes use their intelligence and experience to navigate themselves and their equipment into unknown stage routes that are relatively less impactful on the environment than traditional motorsports events. The 5 day BAJA RALLY begins and ends at the host site of Nico Saad’s San Nicolas Hotel and Casino, the “Home of the BAJA RALLY”. For more information, visit
