Good Morning, all this past week, a group of friends and patrons of the WILD WILD WEST 500 2009 are working on running the course of the 2009 version of this annual race.

We can say the choyeros, the locals have done another great job, designing and executing a great race. The course is in excellent shape, with all the challenging sections, intact. We have run most of the course twice, having accomplished and overcome all the off-road desert barriers. Including, getting ice and beer on a regular basis!

The stops to rest and recreate have been plentiful. The waterfalls, restaurants and local friends of Baja Sur most accomodating!

The Cabo San Lucas HARD ROCK has some great dinner & drink specials for all the international travelers here in Mexico! The Hotel California is offering the finest accomodations in Baja California and be sure to get your vehicle rentals at the National Rent-A-Car at the San Jose del Cabo Airport location and say CABO 500!

The most historic race in southern Baja California Off-Road Racing, will take place, as usual, on 1, 2 and May 3 in the areas of La Paz and Ciudad Constitution, as part of the celebrations of the founding of the Spanish pueblo that evolved into La Paz.

In 2008 the local race, aka WILD WILD WEST 500 broke all records! over 210 teams fought over racing the challenging desert between the Gulf of California and the Pacific Ocean.

For the 2009 edition, the route is already marked with a totally good work done by the La Paz Auto Club, the organizer of this event, which has been working to have the track ready in time for the local racers are traveling the longer routes and pre-running all over.

The sixteenth edition of the WILD WILD WEST 500, organized by the Club La Paz is now on talked about as the most important race, of the favorite and most beautiful State of Baja California Sur (South).

Pre-Running the WILD WILD WEST 500 this year

Lets give the racers some tips and gave us some comments of how the race to begin with, the route is exactly the same as the 2005 route, which goes by "The Bebelamas" and it will be a route to than other years, will begin with a stretch in which to develop high speeds, this is 194 km to La Paz, as this installment is now in very good condition and will be provided for riders who are looking for the Overall the race was a "fast flight" in this part of the track.

In contrast, in sections that were sometimes "good", now would be difficult, noted that the "Race Mile 192" at the entrance to "The Virgencita" is "very bad", between the ranch "Calderón" and "artillery" is very challenging with "permanente", "Los Llanos de IRAI" is flooded with water, so that the road was jammed, but indicated that the path is glued to the flat is better.

As for the 157 km location, is in good condition and due to the amount of water that fell in that area last year, has determined that it is likely to become "talcales" or "silty". Another part of the race course said to be "bad" is in the puebla of Santa Fe.

Given this, it is clear that the second part of the race will be very technical, so the organizer recommends that care should be taken long drives in that part.

This year will not be National Republic of Mexico Championship race, like 2006. So the La Paz ferries won't be as busy bringing teams from the mainland. In 2006, the CABO 500 was the biggest race in the Republic of Mexico, because it was a National and State Championship race.

In relation to the motorcycle racers, the club said "We have worked very well with Alejandro Vizcaino and motorbikes, it seems that people come out to run in this race, it will be well attended by motorcycle teams"!

As for the overall estimates of racers who will be participating in the event, the Club La Paz, estimated around 150 cars and motorcycles, so there will be a great festival of off-road desert racing again this year. This is the most important racing date this year for the Championship Off Road State Series of Baja California Sur.


The WILD WILD WEST 500 will be blasting in La Paz Baja South Mexico on Saturday, May 2. All of the best off-road desert racers of Southern Baja are signed up and racing in the BIGGEST BADDEST RACE of the year.

Racers make the WILD WILD WEST 500 for the racing, the sweet local cuisine and libations! GET SOME!

Fans from all over Mexico will be returning to the Capital of Racing in Mexico, La Paz for the annual desert off-road race. For More Information see CABO
