Ensenada starts of Baja Offroad Races, "NO MAS"!
Ensenada, Baja California Norte, Mexico-
Sal Fish of SCORE has confirmed the rumors as true, no more Baja Races will start in Ensenada. Races will now start in Ojos Negros, miles from Ensenada. How will this affect the racing fans? How will this affect the races? All questions in the air. Here is the scoop- our reporter has forwarded this direct interview with "Sr. Pesca".
""Hi, i make one interview with Sal Fish in the last Laughlin Desert Challenge, and Fish tell me in exclusive for the news papper El Vigia this info, no is a rumor, is true, the Baja 500 2006 are gonna start in Ojos Negros, i dont know the exactly race course and if the race are gonna finish in the same place.
The tentative place for the start is El Crucero, in front of the highway near to the big jumps in Ojos, like the Baja 1000 1999, this move of start out of the city is decided by Cesar Mancillas (mayor of Ensenada) with Sal Fish, because in the point of el big canyon of doña Petra, in the place for the pass for the last 500 and 1000 are building a new part of complex of houses and the new sport city of Real Madrid, the legendary soccer team of Spain. That project is idea of Mancillas, and maybe the 500 the next year can go for the canyon and go straight to Guadalupe valley, passing first for El Porvenir.
This is all the information I know in this moment, but my felling this is a great move for the people of Ojos Negros, for have money and this is better for have control in the jumps of Ojos, remember the last accidents and stupid things for people in that place, i gonna try to help Score International and all the drivers for make conscience in the spectators.""
Another source is a major tire executive who wishes to be confidential.
"The races will be significantly changed with this move to Ojos", said the executive. "The fan aspect of the races, in town in Ensenada, with the racers screaming through the paved city, is gone forever!" Starts out of Ojos will consume the road to San Felipe, it will be unsafe. Ojos is not suited for the numbers of people who will be wanting to get to the action. He said, "this is the death knell of the Baja Races for Baja Norte!".
A planned Baja Racing Cruise planned for the Baja 1000 in November is a dead duck. Why take a cruise to Ensenada when the racers won't even start there? The hotels, motels and inns from Ensenada must be lamenting the situation. The entire fan aspect of the races will change significantly, from a focus on Ensenada to a focus outside of town.
Mas Confusion de SCORE Ja Ja Ja SCORE More Confusion Ha Ha Ha
News of the day, a little while ago i had the oportunity to have a chat with Oscar Ramos where it was clarified the misunderstanding on the change of the point of start of the Baja 500 to Ojos Negros, this aint gona happen, the race starts and finish in Ensenada, it was part of a confusion between me and Sal Fish, but is now resolved.The Baja 500 starts in Ensenada the same for the Baja 1000, as always Blvd. Costero, Arroyo Ensenada, Ambar Street, end of Ruiz street, and from there on to Cañon de Doña Petra, there is going to be an access between the new constructions, for the race to pass trough, this info is going to be published on RPM this Saturday, hoping that is published on the Frontera from TJ and La Cronica from Mexicali newspapers this weekend.
