Pre-Running Notes UPDATED!





"Just pre-ran from RM915 to finish. We have to send a big thank you and congratulations to the entire SCORE team, RN, Jose Grijalva & Oscar Ramos, as well as local authorities for all their great job making the race possible to come down to the south. Thanks and congrats to the whole BFG mapping team too!

The entire trail from San Isidro turn off to Loreto has pretty much been graded! A lot of rocks and stuff, but everything is passable and we pre-ran in a 2WD F150.
Same for the section from San Javier to Maria Auxiliadora, where the locals were working with D8s making some REALLY deep arroyos passable.

The Score crew was out in a couple of Polaris, and did a great job marking to San Carlos more or less.
Be very careful once you come off the highway at Maria Auxiliadora, as it there is some very deep and sticky mud there... when we went through, it had just dried up enough to make a comforting looking hard to layer to allow you to get nicely stuck!

Those of you asking about the silts around Santa Fe... it bypasses them, as it goes up to the highway at Highway 1 KM111, and drops back into El Conejo at Highway 1 KM80. On race day, you will have to be VERY careful on this sections, as the locals always use this trail to go and see the race, and there aren't a lot of options for them to use another access.
From Conquista Agraria it is pretty much 80% new trails for the Baja 1000,

Definitely, it is going to be a tough and challenging Baja 1000, and Kudos to all involved it making the race down south a reality after such a big hit as the Odile."

All German Motorsports Blows Apart!


A long-standing and successful partnership is drawing to an end: After the 2014 SCORE Championship season is over, Armin Schwarz and Martin Christensen will strike out on their own paths. Their last race together will be the legendary Baja 1000 in Mexico (13 to 15 November).

Schwarz charts a new course for the 2015 season and is currently in the process of setting this up. Christensen is keen to cut back his racing commitments after many intensive years of motor racing and would like to dedicate more time to his company.

Christensen: “After winning the Baja 1000 on Sportsman motorcycle in 1995, I was hooked on Baja Racing. I got together with a friend and raced a Class 9 car in 1996 and have raced nearly all SCORE races and a few BITD since then. Through the years, I have formed many lasting friendships which I am extremely great full for. But now, after close to 20 years of continued racing, it is time for me to take a break. The last 8 years of racing with Armin has brought extreme successes which has moved All German Motorsports up in off-road classes to the extreme of the Trophy Truck.

“First and foremost I would like to thank Martin and the entire crew of All German Motorsports for the many years together,” says Schwarz. “We have shared a tremendous amount of experiences during our time together in the SCORE Championship. We have celebrated our successes together and our setbacks have had drawn us closer.

“I’m now in the planning process for the upcoming season in the USA and Mexico,” Schwarz explains further. “I’m looking into and hearing about various options that are available. There is a whole raft of interesting possibilities, but I haven’t yet made a concrete decision. But one thing is certain: My long-standing friend and navigator, Bryan Little, with whom I secured second place at the Rally Legend last weekend, will continue as my co-driver.

The final joint appearance at the legendary desert race in November is where everything comes full circle. 
Since the 2012 season, they have competed in their own specially developed AGM-Jimco X6 SCORE Trophy Truck in the highest vehicle class of the offroad series.

At their last race together they are now eager to notch up another highlight. “We will be going all-out at the Baja 1000,” says Schwarz. “After our good result at the Score Desert Challenge in September we are all feeling extremely motivated heading to the finale. We’ve set our sights on a top result at our last race together before we strike out for new shores.”
