|OTHER BORDER CROSSING TIPS FROM NORRA: |
This is an opportunity and convenience that will drastically improve the crossing vehicles on their way to NORRA registration. Please follow the rules below.
Please make sure that everyone in your party has passports or passport cards. Everyone transitioning from Baja Norte to Baja Sur will also need tourist visas, which can be processed at NORRA registration.
All NORRA Baja border crossings are to be conducted at the San Ysidro/Tijuana “El Chaparral” border.
All NORRA racers to conduct Baja border crossings in Lane #2.
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!
