Default The return of NORRA.

Let's step into the Wayback Machine, Sherman.



The Baja 1000 race was originated by NORRA back in the late 60's. The original founders are back.

I put this here because most of you have read my E85 involvement over the years. They are having an alternative fuels class! It's the first class that I know of in such a rally of this kind. This ain't your little brother's rallyX. Few of you would actually build a car for this event, but I'd like to encourage the well funded and attentive to take a gander . They have a vintage class and an alternative fuel class. As a biofuel nut, this was really cool to see it finally take the forefront in an extended rally format.

Ain't none of us old school like these guys.

Perhaps you didn't get it...

Think of a return of 1,000hp Group-A rally cars running on biofuels in the 21st century. There are no restrictions, meaning this is true open class racing. 32mm what? FIA who? There's plenty of major media coverage planned. This is the real deal, folks. This isn't a flash in the pan reunion tour. It's not an SCCA rally cross. This is 1,000 miles worth of an all-out race to the finish. No rebuilds. No stages. Race to the end, or learn some Spanish trying to get there.

I really want to see some interest from the rally crowd on this. It's far more brutal than rebuilding a can at every stage. Can a Subaru compete successfully in a Baja 1000 race?
