         KING of BAJA 1000 2016

WHAT:  LIVE! ONLINE! BAJA 1000 Desert Off-Road Race

WHEN:  November 14 through Sunday, November 20, 2016

WHERE:   START/FINISH: Ensenada-Baja California, Mexico (65 miles south of U.S./Mexico Border)

WHO:        Nearly 50 entries from 30 U.S. States, and 20 countries, competing in Pro and Sportsman classes for cars, trucks, UTVs, motorcycles and Quads

THE RACE COURSE:     TOTAL MILEAGE: 830 miles (5 physical checkpoints, '195 virtual' checkpoints plus the finish line). Start/Finish on Blvd. Costero, adjacent to the Riviera del Pacifico Cultural Center in Ensenada. 

Another life-threatening event, starting and finishing in the heart of Ensenada in front of the historic Riviera del Pacifico Cultural Center, the course travels in a counter-clockwise direction. It includes the approximate 20 mile stretch to Ojos Negros which is used in both directions. Outgoing, the course heads south from Ojos Negros through Santo Tomas and then runs along the picturesque Pacific Ocean for over 100 miles and then back across to the center of Baja California Norte. The approximately 830-mile course covers both sides of the peninsula and includes four checkpoints. The race will have its normal start from Ensenada to Piedras Gordas, then out to highway 3 around Rm 20.7 and will go to Km33 and get back on the dirt. The course will go past Rancho Grijalva to El Mezcal and head to Uruapan using La Lagrima Rd, a different road than in past years. From Santo Tomas, the course heads to the coast of the Pacific Ocean and runs down to San Quintin, Nuevo Odisea and then to El Rosario. The course will travel up the well known hill La Vivora, el Arenoso, and will loop around from San Juan de Dios at approximate Rm305 to El Metate Rm 340, Los Martires Rm 363 and go back to San Quintin on the east side of the highway and run north to Col. Vicente Guerrero, Jaramillo and Colonet. The course will travel a new route from Colonet to Llano Colorado and across to Valley de Trinidad. The race course goes along the highway from San Matias to Villa del Sol then crossing the highway at El Chinero, north to Coabuso Junction and then climb up the summit in the opposite direction as previous races from the desert to Nuevo Junction and on to Catarina. From Catarina, it will be back to Ojos Negros and from Ojos Negros back to the finish line. The four checkpoints will be located at Santo Tomas (CP 1–race-mile 87), El Rosario (CP 2–rm249), Vicente Guerrero (CP 3–rm457) and Nuevo Junction (CP 4–rm730). Pre-running will 'officially' open on Saturday, October 29, allowing competitors nearly four weeks of practice time on the official race course.  
[Stay tuned here, the teams have already started pre-running! We'll report it HERE!]
