Jalopnik: What It’s Like To Drive A Badass Off-Road Racing Beetle

We had a great time talking Volkswagen with Jason. Man that guy knows his stuff and really appreciated all the little odds and ends that we had to deal with to build up this car to the solid state that it is in now! I know that the formula that usually works best for a […]

Two years ago, on a shoot for Volkswagen, we met Jim Graham and a few members of the Desert Dingo Race Team. From that moment on it was my dream to cover a Class 11 race team make a run at the Baja 1000. I was fascinated by the tenacity and pure determination it has […]

Inspiration. What inspires you? Who inspires you? It doesn’t necessarily have to be a person, but a type of person from whom you draw inspiration. During my experience with the Project Baja team I drew inspiration from every individual I met. I joined the team as a Johnny-come- lately chase crew member who flew in […]

The Final Push: Race Car Edition

The final weeks of preparing for a race like the Baja 1000 involves a few big things but typically a million little things. Lets start with the big things… Like Repainting the whole car! In addition to that we have been working on the vent system for our fuel cell. We use a Discriminator valve […]

Again!? Yeah, again. We competed in the Baja 1000 in 2014 and when we got home it took a little time to believe that we would actually be able to pull off going back. This is such a monumental task and it is hard to explain just how much work it really is. Of course, […]

Well, we did it. All the odds were against us- in fact one website had us at 9 to 1 but we did it, suckers! We were finishers at the 50th Anniversary of the Baja 1000. It’s difficult for people who don’t live for racing and haven’t experienced such a thing to have a concept […]
