2104 NORRA Mexiacn 1000 racing action


Vintage and Evolution classes to share majority of rally route
March 27, 2015

In contrary to the report in the May 2015 FYI section of Hot VWs magazine, it was reported after ship date that despite investing considerable time and financial resources to provide its Vintage categories an entirely separate rally route on Day 1 of the 2015 General Tire Mexican 1000, the National Off Road Racing Association (NORRA) announced it will return to its tradition of running all two, three and four-wheel competitors down the Pacific side of northern Baja for this year’s event. The announcement comes after lengthy discussions between NORRA and its racers. The Vintage course first announced by rally organizers was intended to provide a separate route from the Day 1's Ensenada starting line to the Mexican 1000’s first overnight stop in Bahia de Los Angeles (Bay of Los Angeles). Originally scheduled to take NORRA’s unique Vintage category competitors east and then south along the Sea of Cortez. All Vintage racers will again join their Evolution-class four-wheel counterparts for a good portion of 2015's Day 1 race course.
NORRA will continue to provide Motorcycle categories with separate starting times and overnight locations on Day 1 and Day 2 to offer a far greater measure of safety and enjoyment for an event known as “The Happiest Race on Earth.” NORRA pioneered the concept of using a multiple route, multiple day, rally-style format for long-distance desert events, executing a successful “proof of concept” in 2014 with separation of their two and four-wheel entrants. Scheduled for April 25-29, the 6th annual NORRA Mexican 1000 will once again start in the northern port city of Ensenada, Baja, Mexico and wind its way down to the very tip of the legendary peninsula in the world-class resort area of San Jose del Cabo/Cabo San Lucas. While the exact route is held in secrecy until just before the rally begins, NORRA’s announcement provides chase crews the opportunity to finalize their pre-rally race and fueling strategies.
