Baja racing expands as KTM 690 BAJA Moto Project Continues this racing season, for the Baja 1000, in Baja Mexico

KTM is known for building niche machines; bikes designed to win races in specific categories and terrain. The OEM also happens to live and die by its slogan "Ready to Race." Combine those two attributes and you have one of the most successful off-road racing programs anywhere in the world. The list of successful ventures in cross-country, GNCC, enduro, rally, dual-sport, WORCS and motocross is about to get longer as the Orange company has decided to dump its R&D might into the world of Baja.

Desert racing is nothing new for Katoom, but with a long-standing tradition of Honda dominance in the sand and rock below America's southern border has prompted a completely new niche machine, the 690 Baja.

"The 690 Baja is a highly competitive machine that is capable of winning Baja races in the hands of a top professional rider," says KTM. "The bike is also easy for an amateur to ride and has enough power in any situation. The machine has proved to be reliable and stable and features a new ergonomically streamlined, 19-litre tank that attracted a great deal of attention. The 690 Baja is also significantly lighter than other 650cc enduros and is especially designed to meet the demands of top caliber desert racing."

A testing crew consisting of the reigning Dakar champion, Cyril Despres, Dakar's third-place finisher and Baja veteran, Chris Blais, and current AMA National Hare and Hound champion, David Pearson, was constructed to shake down the bike in a series of events leading up to the Baja 1000 this November. The November Baja 1000, off-road desert racing in Baja California Mexico, is celebrating its 40th Anniversary this year. The KTM effort is slated to be a two-year development process.

Things kicked off in earnest when the dusty trio ran the all-new 690 into a runner-up placing at the 2007 Baja 500. Though they were 27'28 behind the leaders, such a strong result in the first outing is a feather in the cap for the bike that is based off of KTM's extremely successful 690 Rally. That event was followed up with a trip to the Baja Aragon where another Katoom Rally god took a turn on the newbie LC4-based motorcycle. Spaniard Marc Coma took a break from his factory testing to do some eval on the Baja machine. Under his guidance it took top honors only to be penalized and dropped in the standings for a missed check point.

The project has recently hit a snag with a terrible injury to the American leader of the test squad. Blais, with his knowledge and wisdom of how to successfully approach Baja racing, has been filling the role of project coordinator as they work with factory technicians from Austria. Unfortunately, while prerunning for the Best in the Desert Las Vegas to Reno event, Blais crashed and broke his T7 vertebrae outside of Tonopah, NV. He is the second factory KTM rider to be paralyzed this year after Isidre Esteve Pujol was injured during the Spanish All Terrain Rally in March.

Regarding Chris Blais, this was posted by Patty on ADVRIDER:

Hello to all you ADV Riders! I have finally been able to skim through some of the message boards. The amount of support has been astounding. We just can't believe it. The amount of phone calls, visitors here, messages, emails is just incredible! People are amazing from all over the world.

THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU! Thank you for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers. The positive feed from all of you is helping us get through this rough spot.

Chris is amazing. He is keeping me positive and I'm trying to do be so strong for him. The first thing he said was he has no regrets. The second thing he said was that maybe some day he will save someone else's life by being a good example by wearing the Leatt Neck Brace. He truly feels this thing saved his life. Cyril had asked him on Day 1 of the pre-run if they should wear the braces (because he didn't know how fast/slow they would be pre-running) - Chris said "We need to wear them always. We are setting an example." Cyril understood. The next thing he did was give David/Quinn a handheld radio to carry with them and also one for himself/Cyril. He saved his own life!

Basically what happened was Chris was in silt and hit a square-edge. He said he was only going about 50mph. He did a nose-wheelie for quite a ways trying to save it. He went over the bars hitting head first then his head folded to the left, breaking his collar bone and the neck brace. It takes 1500 pounds of pressure to break the brace. It did it's job. The next thing that happened was that the bike landed on Chris, crushing in into the ground stomach side up. This is probably what broke his T7 vertabre. Some of the fragments of bone from the T7 were "resting" on/in his spinal cord like splinters causing the leg numbness. He never lost consciousness while down on the ground but said to Johnny and Quinn "I need a helicopter". Johnny and Quinn would not let Chris be taken out of the desert any other way (because at one point there were talks of driving him out to the highway by the EMT's and others from what I understand).

This all happened about 30 miles north of Tonopah, NV. This is a very rural area and also part of the problem of us trying to get the help Chris needed. Nobody's fault but just saying, things could have gone way more wrong and thank God for all of the people that were there with him and from what I understand, there were quite a handful of bike guys and truck racers. THANK YOU To these people!

The surgery took 4 hours and the splinters were removed and the T7 was fused to the other vertabrea. The surgery was done immediately on Sunday night by a very well known specialist here in Reno. He said the surgery went perfectly and it could not have gone any better. Thank you Mr. Song! Now we wait. We wait for the swelling to go down and for the healing to continue.

Chris has been doing great the whole time. He is not hooked up to any machines at all at this point. As of last night, he was moved from ICU to critical care where he has his own private room. Yes he's sore and yes he's ready to jump up but just can't right now. He's been sitting up for hours at a time and is able to do many things by himself. They are pushing him along and he is doing everything that is asked of him times 10. He wants to get to rehab to start the process. They have never once said that his leg numbness is permanent - never once.

TRULY THANK YOU. There is no other sport in the world like ours, none. Where in the world would people who don't even know you offer you their home and their vehicles or come to visit you because they also race but maybe a horse or a midget car or a boat. People are just incredible and it's blowing us away!

Chris wants David and Quinn to still race Vegas to Reno and is pushing for them to do so. We're pushing for Cyril too maybe as a solo ride or with someone else. He wants life to move forward for everyone and does not want his accident to cause any pauses in KTM's plan, his plan, or anyone else's life plans and goals. He also wants me to still race it with my team but I can't. I would not be focused at all.

Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers and continue to support my husband as you all have already been doing. His character is going to help his healing process. His attitude will help mine.

Cameron Steele Draws Pole Positions in Two Classes for Primm 300


Cameron Steele gets pole position, the only way possible, hand chosen by SCORE, for not one, but two pole positions. C'mon, get real! CLICK HERE

From SCORE & Dominic Clark,
""Good fortune smiled down on veteran racer and TV sportscaster Cameron Steele, who drew the first starting position in both the featured SCORE Trophy-Truck and the SCORE Lite divisions in the computerized drawing for starting positions for next month’s 12th Annual SCORE Las Vegas Primm 300 desert race. Round 5 of the six-race 2007 SCORE Desert Series will be held Sept. 7-9 in Primm, Nev.
In a sport where there is no qualifying or open pre-running (in the U.S.), the drawing for start positions has added significance and the No. 16 Desert Assassins Chevy Silverado SCORE Trophy-Truck and No. 1201 VW-powered Desert Assassins open-wheel desert race car were selected randomly in Wednesday’s computerized drawing at the SCORE Int’l headquarters in Los Angeles.

“Wow, this is so cool that I am almost speechless which is something I seldom am”, said Steele, 38 of San Clemente, Calif., a second generation desert racer who is a pit reporter for telecasts of the Champ Car World Series and just finished announcing the motorcycle events in the X Games for ESPN. “This is a great opportunity for me in both classes. I am very comfortable in SCORE Lite and being able to run that class in the morning group will definitely give me a bit of an edge to then go out in the afternoon and lead the SCORE Trophy-Trucks into the desert. We have a new SCORE Trophy-Truck and it is very capable of running with the big dogs as long as I don’t have any pilot errors.”

With one race win this season, Steele is leading the SCORE Lite point standings, but he has struggled in SCORE Trophy-Truck where he is currently 22nd in points.""

Baja Racing News Question...How does SCORE pull their draws?

Robby Gordon, "I'm a whack". The Baja 1000 racer.

By Chuck Burton, AP

No hard feelings: Robby Gordon and Marcos Ambrose played Busch Series bumper tag last Saturday, but can laugh about it four days later. Gordon made an unusual peace offering, giving Ambrose a Nextel Cup ride for Sunday's event at Watkins Glen.
He wasn't old enough to rent a car at Orlando International Airport, so he hailed a cab to reach Sebring International Raceway — which was 90 miles away. Upon arrival, he strapped into a sports car for the first time and was on pace with road-course ace Dorsey Schroeder by the second lap. He begged a Ford official to borrow a car afterward and raced back to the airport to catch a flight to Los Angeles, where he attended a banquet to collect a check for an off-road championship.

Robby Gordon caught a red-eye back to Florida, drove straight to Sebring and clocked laps faster than the previous day. Dan Davis, director of Ford Racing Technology, chuckled when a colleague recently recounted the story of how Gordon, then 19, earned the first major-league ride of a career often as brilliant as it has been bullheaded. "He's a dog with a bone, and he'll wrestle that bone and bury it and dig it back up and bury it again," said Davis, who oversees Ford's Nextel Cup Series program. "Robby doesn't back down from anything."

That includes NASCAR, and Gordon's stubbornness with the sanctioning body flared again last week in the Busch Series race at Montreal. For repeatedly disobeying a black flag and staging an outlaw victory celebration replete with a defiant, nose-thumbing burnout, Gordon was parked at Pocono Raceway, fined $35,000 and warned one more transgression will trigger an indefinite suspension.

But the dogged persistence that has punished Gordon also has pushed him into a precedent-setting position in NASCAR's premier series. The 38-year-old is the only single-car driver-owner remaining in Cup and has been competitive this season against multicar organizations with four times the budget and staff of his 58-person team. In a recent six-race stretch from Dover International Speedway to Daytona International Speedway, Gordon gained more points positions (nine) than anyone but Casey Mears, who also comes from a long line of off road racing, while climbing to 24th in the standings.

The versatile driver who has won in Indy cars, stock cars, sports cars, desert racing & Baja racing trucks and dune buggies will enter this weekend as a threat to sweep the Busch and Cup races at Watkins Glen International, and he believes his maverick ways eventually will make him a weekly contender. "There's no one like me," said Gordon, who is making an unconventional peace offering to Marcos Ambrose, whom he spun out from the lead at Montreal, by fielding a car for the Australian's potential Cup debut at Watkins Glen. "I'm a whack! I eat, sleep, drink and poop racing, OK? Nobody in their right mind thinks about it as much as I do. If you just follow the way everyone else does it, you're never going to get ahead. We have our own way of doing things."

The uniqueness is evident in the driver motor home lot. At the track, Gordon lives in a custom-built, two-tiered tractor trailer with two bedrooms and a glassed-in conference room laden with flat-screen TVs that are elevated 4 feet to offer a suite-style view for entertaining sponsors. It's unlike any of the million-dollar buses housing his peers, and it shows the ingenuity upon which he prides himself. Gordon commissioned an engineer to devise a touch-screen software program so his team could track speeds on laptops. To ensure assembly-line efficiency, Robby Gordon Motorsports is installing monitors in its shop offering detailed instructions and photos for building cars in a format "no different than shopping at AutoZone," according to Gordon.
"I think of things that other people don't," he said.

Gordon said his creativity and organization stems from off-road racing, in which exotic locales and logistical hurdles necessitate extensive planning. He has eight crewmembers readying for his fourth consecutive attempt at the Dakar Rally, a two-week race spanning two continents. He will head to Portugal in January, six weeks after his Hummer and supplies are shipped. "When you cross the Strait of Gibraltar, if you didn't think of something a month and a half before, you don't have it," he said.

The Baja 1000 demands as much preparation. Gordon positions a 100-person chain along the Baja peninsula to provide pit support during the endurance race in the Mexican desert.
"All those things help with managing the stock car operation," he said. "We're gong to pull into the winner's circle."

Gordon's No. 7 Ford is ranked 29th in owner points, but Kyle Petty says the car has been better than its results. "He's still been impressive," Petty said. "A lot of people have questioned his decision-making, but no one has ever questioned his talent." Ford has encouraged Gordon to add a second car, but Davis isn't second-guessing whether Gordon can succeed without one.
"He's going up against a lot of multicar teams, and he's whipped them," Davis said. "On track, he doesn't make a whole lot of friends, and that's Robby. He runs a tight ship and demands a lot out of his employees and himself. He's absolutely tenacious at achieving his goals. I think he can make it."

Off-road race needs to stay put, not desert speedway

Jeff Wolff

REPRINT ED FROM July 20, 2007 EDITORIAL
Copyright © Las Vegas Review-Journal

If you believe God created Earth in six days, then he made the deserts five minutes before quitting time. He must have been in a hurry to clock out for that noted day of rest.
Truth is, the only worthwhile sand is on beaches, where cool waves lap ashore.
Sorry, I just don't like varying shades of beige, heat and prickly things.
Desert racing is the only good byproduct of barren terrain.

I was excited when the SCORE Las Vegas Terrible's Cup was created three years ago for the dirt track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. It showcases the sport like no other venue -- especially for urbanites such as me.
My prayers were answered: a desert race with paved parking, permanent restrooms and a circuit where nearly all the action could be seen.
Sweaty, dusty excitement with the amenities of a modern racing stadium and races scheduled at night to avoid the heat.
Now that's heaven.

Apparently I'm not the only one enthralled by the marriage of a comfortable facility and desert racing.
The crowd for tonight's first of two rounds of Terrible's Cup III at the speedway could surpass the event's previous editions, which were entertaining and well attended.
Many were surprised in 2005 when an estimated 13,000 defied the heat and showed up for the two-night event. Even more attended last year with about 15,000 over two nights.
There's added interest this year: For the first time, racers will vie for coveted SCORE championship points on the 1.5-mile circuit, about 90 percent of which is visible from the grandstands. What little fans can't see is shown on a jumbo television screen in the infield.
The points incentive has nearly doubled the field of SCORE Trophy-Trucks to 21 from the number that competed a year ago. Total entries have risen to 97 from around 60.
Sal Fish, desert racing's godfather, wanted to have a stadium race at the speedway seven years ago and sought the help of desert racing's premier supporter, Jerry Herbst.

They couldn't come to an equitable deal with the speedway. Four years later, Las Vegas Events, which owns the event, stepped in with major sponsorship and promotional support from Herbst. The Herbsts, who field two of the most successful teams ever in the desert, invest more in the sport than any other group.
However, the speedway event could be in jeopardy of eventually moving to Primm.
Herbst Gaming's purchase of the three properties in Primm from MGM Mirage for $400 million was finalized in April. The complex is along Interstate 15 about 40 miles southwest of Las Vegas.

Ed Herbst, at 46 the oldest of three racing brothers, said his company plans to create a desert-racing stadium behind Buffalo Bill's in Primm, which will host the 12th annual Las Vegas Primm 300 on Sept. 8.
He said the facility -- or "desert racing mecca" -- will have various off-road events, along with motorcycle racing and sand drags.

The venue, which will have a 1- or 1.5-mile course, will hold a Championship Off-Road Racing event in November with between 10,000 and 15,000 temporary seats. Herbst said permanent grandstands with fan amenities might be built.
CORR, which runs on 1-mile circuits, and this weekend's speedway event in a few years could become the only way desert racers can compete in Southern Nevada.

A proposed regional airport will continue to swallow much of the land to be used for the longtime SCORE Primm race. For each of the past few years, the course for the season-opening SCORE Laughlin Desert Challenge has gotten shorter because of land sales and planned developments in the city.
Fortunately, the Baja 500 and Baja 1000 in Mexico seem safe, as does the Las Vegas-to-Reno race in the Best in the Desert Series.
Herbst said he believes the success of the speedway event could outgrow the 8,000-seat permanent grandstand.
LVE president Pat Christensen said he's ready to roll in temporary grandstands when that happens.

What Terrible's Cup promoters call "a taste of Baja" should remain at the speedway's dirt track until a comparable facility is built in Primm.
The Herbsts always have put the sport first, and there's no reason to believe they won't when it comes to keeping the Cup at the speedway.
Every racing series needs a family like the Herbsts. Desert racers are glad to have them.

Who's Your Daddy sponsors Albanez Motorsports

Baja Racing News EXCLUSIVE!

Who's Your Daddy, a brand management company focused on the marketing, sales, production, and distribution of energy drinks is sponsoring the Albanez Motorsport racing team, a championship off-road desert racing team which competes in the Score International, CODE and MDR racing events throughout the year.

The team competes in eight races per year, half of which are in the Baja California, Mexico area for Score-international, while the others are in the Las Vegas area. Financial details were not disclosed. Carlos Albanez, president and driver for Albanez Motorsports, commented: "We at Team Albanez are confident that this sponsorship is a win-win for both Who's Your Daddy and the Albanez Motorsports team. The pinnacle of our race year is the Baja 1000, which will start this year in Ensenada, Baja California and finish in Cabo San Lucas in the extreme south end of the Baja peninsula."

Mr. Albanez continued: "The team is currently preparing for the upcoming Score-International PRIMM race in the Las Vegas area followed by the Baja 1000 in the fall, the biggest racing event of the year. Team Albanez intends to win the PRIMM race in September 2007, and place first, second, or even third in the coveted Baja 1000, to win the Score Championship Series."

Who's Your Daddy said that following each race, Team Albanez will be featured in several print publications, and covered in live video footage by Cactus Films during the bigger races. The team will soon be featured in the Score-International Radio promotional, which will highlight some of the sport's most promising teams.

As part of the sponsorship deal, Team Albanez's trailer and Volkswagen Class 5 Unlimited Racer will be covered in Who's Your Daddy energy drink advertisements, and will be outfitted in appropriate apparel to represent Who's Your Daddy energy drinks at the many race events throughout the year. The team will also distribute Who's Your Daddy energy drinks to fans as well as logo stickers and t-shirts.

Who's Your Daddy president, Dan Fleyshman, said: "Since the company began sponsoring Team Albanez, they won two back-to-back championships. Their success has generated tremendous public exposure for Who's Your Daddy energy drinks."

He continued: "Sponsoring Team Albanez is a great way for Who's Your Daddy to build brand recognition, to generate tremendous public exposure, and to attract new customers in this growing sports market. Action sports like motorsport racing are gaining popularity, particularly among the youth generation which is our target demographic."

UPDATE! Saturday, August 11, 2007

Baja Racing News has received no denials regarding this EDITORIAL. Another inside Baja Racing News source breaks news. Do you have a Baja Racing story to tell? Do you have inside information about off-road racing?

Private & Confidential.
Send it to safari2002@cox.net

Original EDITORIAL:

C'mon 1600's race at Primm at years end. No need going to that bad MDR Dash race.
MDR gets boned in the process. Last years Dash and all the trash talking after the race, from the spoiled 1600 whiners who got BEAT, now are being proded to take their money and racing to Primm. And, reportedly, with Cam Steele getting a cut of the take. A piece of the hotel, bar and gaming proceeds.

The Scaronis are also saying 'No Mas Dash'. They dont need a cut of the take, they have all those friendly guest workers cutting lettuce.

Well, we told you so. West coast off road racing will never be the same. As long as there are rooms to be filled in PRIMM Nevada and a cut of the take to be made, every offroad race event COULD take place in Primm.

And the Pied Piper of the lobotomized off road community, Cam Steele has started the freefall. Heres the proof. Here's PABS thread starter " New Years 1600 race at Primm!", posted by (Cameron Steele) on the 'non-profit website', ""Hey *** familia(?) the buggy dorks are working with the Herbst and all involved at Primm to bring ya a real whiz bang of an event.

More to come but this much I know.....multiple races with multiple drivers and way more fun than you can handle. The Tree Bar will never be the same.

V Town boys will be head over heals and a team format could see Rob Mac and the Freedoggers taking on Poptart and Cheater who will be up against the Boyers and then Phankutch and Ashcraft and that other McMillin guy and the Champ Gaddis against Geer and Folts with some Sammy and LJ getting crazy! The real Cheater Steven Eugino and bad *** Gumz clash again on the infield? Who will reign supreme? Maybe a Bekki Wik sighting will be made and by the way the Herbsts have some 1600 cars too! Oh man there goes the neighborhood!..............Hendrickson out of self imposed retirement G Wallace in the house. Even Kash and Hardesty are claiming an appearance.

Let's hear it boys and girls ya ready to tango?

I know RDCers won't believe it but Robby Gordon has 1600 history! Had to throw in some RG to really get this thread going......wait....hold on.....what if RG and Rob Mac went head to head................arghhhhhhhhhhhh my head is going to blow!

Spread the word, like last year it will be a roll call of people throwing into the pot, looking for sponsors and we will pile on the love of those that support the best in 1600!

This would be a perfect spot for the Tavo Protruck vs. Pinkie battle!

For more info PM Glamis Girly she did it all and we all owe her! Or you can call Cheaters cell phone""

Lets all follow Cam Steele to Primm.
