BAJA 500, The Tragedy and The Embezzlement
ZETA Newspaper Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico
For various reasons, the Baja 500, records at least one death during the most important sporting event in this oceanside community in Baja California, Ensenada, every race!
Governmental entities that organize the events have been declared in the red, bankrupt, as the budget is insufficient and end up paying with money from the community.
The latest edition of the Baja 500 off road race, controlled and organized by the American firm Score-International of San Diego, California, holds the race in Ensenada.

Even though it appears that the municipal government benefits with the location of the competition, what is certain is that with each race, the municipality, through Proturismo, had ended up in the red since 2011, with debts of 150,000 pesos (US$8,000) which end up being paid with city money.
"The races have had Proturismo in bankruptcy for years," criticized one person interviewed.
Businesses such as prostitution also have become an attraction for those in that business, and days before the race women in the business arrive in Ensenada from other Mexican states.

This is not the first time that tragedy loomed within the most important sporting event in Ensenada.
In each edition at least one person linked to the event dies for different reasons.
SCORE and Roger Norman, has manipulated and threatened authorities with the possibility of move the race to Puerto Peñasco, in Sonora, or La Paz, Baja California Sur.
Those governments have computed the proceeds and rejected the SCORE proposals because the government revenues would be insufficient to the costs born by the local people.
