January 11, 2012:
"And just in case you believe you're safe and THEY don't know that you are racing in Mexico, they are racing along side you! A Class 1 racer at the San Felipe SCORE 250 was yanked out of his Class 1 rig as they were lining up for the start. Who is he? A Class 1 hitman for one of Mexico's largest drug cartels!
The racer yanked out of his Class 1 at the SCORE International San Felipe 250 event, is a criminal of historic dimensions. Who checks these racers-teams out really? NO ONE. They just want the entry fees, the money-dinero-$$$. Now they're taking money from the tourism authority of Mexico to lure YOU - DOWN.
This person was one of the most NOTORIOUS KILLERS IN MEXICO!
Before starting the race, law enforcement authorities from the local cops to the Mexican Navy swooped in and apprehended the 'Blind Man'. Saul Montes de Oca Morlett. Race vehicle number 117. A local race team, with his helmet on and ready to race, the officials guns were shoved into his face and he was ordered out of the race rig. Arrested and flown to Mexico City.
This "Team", was the same organization involved with the notorious helicopter crash at the Baja 1000. CLICK HERE
The 'Blind Man' was in charge of a kidnapping and killing cel (group of men) for a major drug trafficking cartel of Baja California Norte. After all the assurances of safety by the authorities, including SCORE, the race sanctioning and promoting body, this killer was racing with all the Americans. Surprised?
Baja Racing News has warned of this situation for YEARS.
The state police have warned you, the State Department of the United States has warned you and now the recent events during these races have exposed the reality of the situation.
What does this all PROVE? Racing in Baja Mexico is "the Most Dangerous and Notorious Racing in the World". And this isn't even talking about the actual RACING!""
Original Reporting Started January 1, 2015:
Throughout the month of January, we are reporting deeper into the people who desert off-road race, in Mexico. [December 24, 2014 State Department Advisory]
"Baja California: Tijuana, Rosarito, Ensenada and Mexicali are major cities/travel destinations in the state of Baja California - Exercise caution in the northern state of Baja California, particularly at night. Criminal activity along highways is a continuing security concern. According to the Baja State Secretariat for Public Security, from January to October 2014 Tijuana and Rosarito experienced increasing homicide rates compared to the same period in the previous year. While most of these homicides appeared to be targeted criminal organization assassinations, turf battles between criminal groups have resulted in violent crime in areas frequented by U.S. citizens. Shooting incidents, in which innocent bystanders have been injured, have occurred during daylight hours.
Baja California (Sur): Cabo San Lucas and La Paz are major cities/travel destinations in the state of Southern Baja California – Exercise caution in the state capital of La Paz. According to the Department of Interior of Mexico, in 2013 Baja California Sur registered its highest homicide rate since 1997. Many of these homicides occurred in La Paz, where there has been an increase in organized crime-related violence."
BajaRacingNews.com, is looking deeper into racing in Mexico and the people from the United States and other International countries, who have made decisions about their own lives. The people of Baja Sur are demanding an end to the prevailing insecurity.
