AGUA DULCE, CALIF. – Staying true to its core value of promoting “The Happiest Race on Earth,” NORRA today announced a new three-way partnership with MAG 7, Amber Racing Service and F&L fuel to provide racers with world-class support services at the upcoming Yokohama NORRA Mexican 1000.
The new agreement offers several tiers of service down the remote Baja peninsula for the upcoming event, a 1,256-mile journey from Ensenada, Baja, Mexico to the shores of San Jose del Cabo. The 10th running of the retro-themed rally is expected to attract more than 250 entries in a variety of classes for a five-day adventure that runs from April 26th to May 3rd.
The challenges of racing in NORRA’s growing category of stock UTVs has also been addressed, with the “Full Service Package” offers the option of much-needed fueling option support every 80 miles (in addition to road crossing and Pemex stations). This service is a huge aid to Baja stock UTV racers as they must run stock fuel tanks, which offer a very limited fuel range.
MAG 7 is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization whose mission has focused on supporting Baja racers since the first Mexican off-road race in 1967. This is what they love to do!
To sign-up for all MAG 7 Full Service Packages, racers are encouraged to register online at www.mag7race.com. Note: online registration closes on Sunday, April 21, 2019.
Beginning in 2010, the National Off Road Racing Association (NORRA) began promoting a rebirth of the NORRA Mexican 1000 rally. The unique off-road rally was co-created by promoter Mike Pearlman to consist of special stages (unlimited speed timed stages in the dirt) linked together by controlled speed liaison / transit sections (highway). The one-of-a-kind, once-a-year, five-day rally includes vintage off-road vehicles and motorcycles, as well as modern desert Rally Raid cars, pre-runner trucks, buggies, UTVs and motorcycles.
Pearlman’s late father Ed and others established the first running of the NORRA Mexican 1000 off-road rally in November of 1967, which eventually became internationally recognized and evolved into the Baja 1000 in the mid-1970’s.
