BAJA 1000 Situation Update

The real danger in this event is not the race, not the desert, not even the mexican crime wave! The real danger are the decisions made by the event organizer. RogerNormanInc.

Norman's SCORE has been found culpable in the Kurt Caselli Incident, where a top racer perished, partly as a result of decisions made by Roger Norman.

One expert witness, Bill Fuentes, who worked directly for Roger Norman, has identified the 'owner' of SCORE, as a sociopath.

Rogers attempts at stealing racing events is now legendary! The board members of SNORE who told us the entire tale of the MINT 400 were shocked!


The fake 'Pull' for non-unlimited Starting Positions

Roger's SCORE will hold their event in PRIVATE...said to be a 'Computerized' pull, much like the Fish days, the entire pull is a sham. Norman will choose who starts off the line and when.

Norman is well known, to pick and choose the winners and losers of his events. Who he likes and dislikes.

The most recent outrage was the Clyde Stacy teams getting all the first starts in the Baja Sewer. From the vacuous press release: "Southern gentleman Clyde Stacy, of Bristol, Va., received the honor of". Proof, there was no real 'pull'. He was gifted the starts by his pal, Norman.
 
Stacy, who also participated in the bidding process during the sale of SCORE to Roger Norman, is said to be a kidnap target by local Mexican criminal groups.

Clyde Stacy is a coal-baron, who desert races and finances teams for his personal pleasure.

THE KING OF BAJA 1000 2015


November 2, 2015 Update!

Good Ole' Fashioned PreRunning
Today, we report on our preruns over the past weeks. The El Nino influenced weather and the moon conditions have left us remembering "Dear Old Western Skies". LOADING NOW>>>

Radio Comm Warning!  
"GEOMAGNETIC STORM ADVISORY: A high-speed stream of solar wind is about to hit Earth's magnetic field, prompting NOAA forecasters to estimate an 85% to 90% chance of geomagnetic storms on Nov. 2-3.  This is the same 800 km/s stream that lashed Earth's magnetic field in early October, sparking strong geomagnetic storms and bright auroras over northern-tier US states."

October 31

Many race course changes! Count on at least ten (10) new race course editions before the green flag drops. 

*Race Course Run-Downs After Pre-Runs

70 miles of paved road from Cocos corner north toward San Felipe in the middle of nowhere, surely there must be a goat trail we can run on that will bring the off road miles to well under 700. First 840 miles are not close to a 1000. One-hundred plus paved miles!


Loop 1000 races are 800-900 miles 95% of the time. This event will be a perfect time to run your speed limiters!

There is a big section of that highway though that we don't see why it couldn't get permitted as race speed! There are alot of side dirt roads (use for access) that could be raced on and only get on the highway where needed.

This 1000 event is going to be challenging. Going to have dust and silt getting from Ojos to Urapan, then get a little break to get ready for the regular coastal fog if you dont beat it, then rocks and silt getting to Catavina, then some fun until you get to the nasty silt, after that more fun until you hit the highway after Cocos Corner, then San Felipe awesomeness to make sure your vehicle is still holding together, and the fun just continues till you make it across the finish line! 


The bypass at El Rosario was fixed by a tractor, so it could be used by all vehicles, including emergency rigs. Four miles of lotsa rocks and the largest concrete runway we've discovered in Baja California! Is this a goverment military cartel fly-in? It's only one klik off the main Highway 1!. There is tons of water damage from here past Catavina. More Loading>>>


*Pre-Running has begun during the, 'course marking', over the last week. Already, the markers are turning into 'tacos' (cheaply made without lamination) and disappearing! Souvenirs!

And Roger doesn't re-mark, nor clue racers into any course changes, until the electronic file is updated. Meaning, many racers over the next few prerunning weeks, will not get the correct course changes. They'll be prerunning over changed course routes!

Very common nowadays.

*Qualifying is only just days away (in Las Vegas) and the Baja 1000 entry list is still short hundreds of participants. But, Roger doesn't care. He only cares about his 'unique views'. The truth is, fewer and fewer customers are willing to give this man any money. Racers, sponsors and vendors.

The lack of entries is not reflective of the superior weather conditions, nor the hospitality of the people of Baja California, Mexico.

It is reflective of the owner/operator of SCORE International, Roger Norman. He's made so many bad decisions, impacting sportsmen desert off-road racers, this publication is now reporting on the topic, daily. [Citizen Norman]

Already this event is signifying the loss of sportsmen racers, motorcycle and quad competitors.  The racers who started it all are no longer wanted in the event. Well, their money for huge entry fees is wanted, nothing else. Not their viewpoint, history nor inclusion in any of the activities surrounding the race.

Just look at qualifying and the dog & pony show scheduled at SEMA in La Vegas. Just the unlimiteds.

Roger couldn't even hold a starting position draw at Off-Road Expo! Not enough entries to have a legit draw!

Even before the green flag has dropped, Roger Normans vision of racing in Mexico with SCORE International has changed into RogerNorman Inc.

It's not the SCORE everyone knew from its historic past.

The vision? The giga-uber-wealthy now own the series. They are the only ones that can pay the outrageous costs and who can really afford the risks?! Remember, Norman told us, "if you can't afford to lose everything (including your life) this racing isn't for you"!

The LAST Imperial Valley 250 EXPOSED

*The 2016 Score schedule will begin in late February with the San Felipe 250 celebrating its 30th birthday.

Later in April, Roger continues to carpetbag Baja Surenos with his Baja Sewer 500. Norman is trying desperately to blame dead attorney Oscar Ramos . 


In June, the Baja 500 enjoys its 48th birthday with a competition with start and finish in Ensenada. 

In September a new Rosarito event will replace Imperial Valley in the schedule. We are watching the movements of Raul Rodriguez of  Tecnovision. Roger Norman is using his new boy to run the Rosarito off-road race.


In November, all roads lead to the LIVE! KING OF BAJA 1000, ONLINE here on BajaRacingNews.com.

The 2016 race course, starting and finishing in Ensenada. The 2017 event will attempt to rival the "Baja 2000" race course. Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the SCORE event. The event actually started under another sanction, much earlier in time.

*Saturday, September 19: "McVoss" Announced to take on Unlimited Field in Fall Classic 

The San Diego McMillin family has announced they have teamed up with 2013 KING of LAS VEGAS Voss Motorsports and Jason Voss to take on the 2015 Baja 1000.

The Mark McMillin side of the racing clan continues to participate in the activity, Luke and Dan. The Scott McMillin side, Jessica and Andy are not, in fact, they are selling their set of expensive Geiser Trucks. Andy fills in open seats for Rob Mac and Steve Sourapas.

Both Scott and Mark, sons of the late Corky McMillin, do not race any longer.

October 25:


The HONDA Ridgeline 'Desert Race Truck' is now being teased as the design of the new Ridgeline via a concept that will debut at SEMA and race in the Baja 1000.

No additional details on the 2017 Ridgeline have been released but Honda states that the concept version being unveiled at SEMA will mark the brand’s return to Honda Performance Development (HPD)-powered factory off-road racing on four wheels. The automaker has previously confirmed that it will compete in the unlimited off-road category of the 2015 Baja 1000 desert race this November.

It now looks likely that the Ridgeline Desert Race Truck will be Honda’s weapon of choice for the race. Honda’s Baja entry will be powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 engine and feature an Albins ST6 sequential transmission, racing shocks, and racing tires.

The HONDA Ridgeline hasn’t been on sale since the 2014 model year but a new generation is being readied for 2017, and we’ll see it for the first time at next week’s SEMA show. Honda isn’t willing to show the production version just yet.



As for the production Ridgeline, it’s expected to hit the market as a 2017 model, powered by a 3.5-liter naturally aspirated V6 pulled from the 2016 Pilot that should be good for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. We can expect the new Ridgeline to be sold only as a crew-cab model (like the previous generation).

Though the 2017 Ridgeline will arrive in SEMA as a concept, in just one week, the truck will debut in production form at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Honda will be diving into a hotly contested small truck market, with new or recently redesigned entries like Toyota’s 2016 Tacoma, Chevrolet’s Colorado, and GMC’s Canyon (and soon Fords new Ranger and Bronco, Reported in BajaRacingNews.com Exclusively).

The previous generation Ridgeline was always a bit of an oddball in the pickup truck market, offering a car-like ride with slightly more utility than an average small truck, so it will be interesting to see how a more attractive and off-road capable next-generation sells.

UPDATE October 1




"Honda Announces HPD-Powered Factory Off-Road Racing Initiative, First Race in SCORE Baja 1000


  • Honda unlimited off-road race vehicle, powered by Honda Performance Development
  • Factory off-road race initiative kicks off with Baja 1000 in November; continues into 2016
SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (August 24, 2015) – Honda will make its 4-wheel off-road factory racing return this November in the Baja 1000 desert race, with an unlimited off-road race vehicle powered by Honda Performance Development, the racing arm of American Honda Motor Company, Inc. The manufacturer teased images of its race vehicle today, featuring a twin-turbocharged Honda HR35TT V6 engine, Albins ST6 sequential transmission, Fox racing shocks. More information will be available in the days leading up to the Baja 1000 event in November.
This return to the Baja 1000 marks Honda’s first 4-wheel desert race since the HPD Desert Pilot competed in Class 6 in 2012. For more information about HPD and the company’s racing product lines."

A HONDA production V6 will be the foundation for this years Baja 1000 effort. Right Now: The HR35TT twin-turbo V6 runs in the Tudor United Sportscar Championship, 2015. The engine will debut in the 12 Hours of Sebring mounted in a Riley Gen3 prototype chassis from the Starworks Motorsport garage.This engine is derived from Honda’s J35 production engines. Key features of the HR35TT include steel crankshaft and rods, dry sump oiling, direct fuel injection and HPD/McLaren engine management. This Honda engine is the second twin-turbo engine approved for Daytona Prototype cars.



This effort, will make its 4-wheel off-road factory racing return this November in the Infamous BAJA 1000 desert race, with an unlimited off-road race vehicle powered by Honda Performance Development, the racing arm of American Honda Motor Company, Inc. 

The manufacturer teased images of its race vehicle today, featuring the twin-turbocharged Honda HR35TT V6 engine, with an  Albins ST6 sequential transmission, racing shocks. More information will be available in the days leading up to the Baja 1000 event in November. 

This return to the Baja 1000 marks Honda's first 4-wheel desert race since the HPD Desert Pilot competed in Class 6 in 2012 (Skiltons Team).

The Skiltons ran away from Baja racing in 2012, saying the SCORE insurance wasn't good enough. Probably BS. HONDA probably nixed the effort due to poor race showings. Yea, blame the race sanctions insurance!

Not only was it obvious to onlookers at the start line in Ensenada, you can see them online, now, at the site that has SCam Steele leaving the start line on video. The BFG tire tread pattern is glaring.


The BFGoodrich tire inspector team at the start line caught Steele pissing all over his team sponsor, Yokohama. The late Robert 'Radio Bob' Hynes and his assistant busted the Desert Asses!  

The Team Spills the beans on the BFGoodrich-Yokohama blowout:

""That is a personal issue between the vehicle owners (cam & clyde) and the two tire manufactures .... no need to drum up this kind of drama on this big "stage" ... maybe some other time, you'll get your question answered", said a DA source online. "They (The Desert Asses) haven't felt comfortable enough with the 35's & 37's of Yokohama and have not severed ties with BFGoodrich Tires.... nothing against Yokohama, they have been absolutely awesome supporters "all year" of Cameron Steeles "Team" .... and yes, heidi and vano have been using the Yokohama tires on the 7 as well as pinkie and cheater on the buggies", he continued.""
