If there is an event where adrenaline and passion are the protagonists, it is the Baja 1000, one of the most important events in the state and world class thanks to the challenge of the road and for being one of the longest in the world (This year of 1,227 miles , with an average journey time of 50 hours). Not for nothing has it been voted twice as the “Best Motorsports Event in the World”.
The Baja 1000 is an all-terrain car, motorcycle and ATV rally that has been held in the Baja California desert for more than 50 years; It starts from Ensenada to La Paz, although it can also be done in a circuit and return to Ensenada.
Every year hundreds of fans and admirers of this type of sport meet in one of the main avenues of the port to see the cars, motorcycles and others before they start their journey. There is a family atmosphere of conviviality and merchants and businesses related to the races are placed around the exit.
Every year teams arrive from various parts of the world; many of them take the time to greet the locals and even take a selfie or give an autograph.
This 2021 will take place from November 15 to 20 and it is intended to exceed 200 participants. In this 54th edition of the “BFGoodrich Tires SCORE Baja 1000 presented by 4Wheel Parts”, runners from 17 countries around the world and 35 states of the American Union will be present.
It is projected that 32 new “motorcycle” teams will participate as well as 17 car teams that have never competed on the peninsula, plus 5 car teams returning to a SCORE International race after a four-year absence.
This year will be a little different than it has always been, since the place where the mechanical revision and the start of the race will take place will be changed from the front of the “Riviera del Pacifico” to the marina of the port and it will not be allowed access to the public, since there will be restricted access to brokers, media and staff.
If you want to closely follow the Baja 1000, the local authorities invite you to follow the security protocols in the areas where they gather to see their runners up close. Take your well-charged camera or smartphone with you to capture the best moments of the ride. Enjoy and live the great events in the state!
