NileGuide Expert tip:
Taste of Baja is a great introduction for those new to off-road racing, and includes a snack break and post-race beer.
Racing fans, and those who remember the old Wide World of Sports, are undoubtedly familiar with the Baja 1000, the off-road race that winds down the peninsula from Ensenada to La Paz, with everything from motorcycles, buggies, and trucks trying to weather the shock-busting desert conditions. Wide Open Baja gives visitors a taste of these challenging conditions, with experiences, tours, and races that last from a few hours to four days. Taste of Baja is the introductory experience, a three hour adventure that includes 15 miles of off-road driving in an authentic $100,000 Baja Challenge race car. The car features a custom made Chromoly chassis, 4-speed manual transmission, 18 inches of suspension shocks and springs, safety harness, and a fresh air supply to combat the desert dust. The Lunch Run lasts a full day (9 hours), and includes 120 plus miles of off-road driving from Cabo San Lucas to Todos Santos, with lunch at the legendary Hotel California.
