Navigation & Communication

Navigation & Communication

Possibly the most difficult element of racing in the remote areas of Baja is navigation and communication. It all seems so straight forward when you are sitting comfortably in your house and you see these GPS units and phones and think “how hard could this be!?” but you quickly are introduced to a world without […]

Beat Up and Grinning

Holy. Crap. I seriously don’t even have words to explain what the hell just happened, but I’ll try a little bit. Josh and I got in 1137 around Rm 80 and the car had already started to take a beating. Rear fenders were dented, engine was boggy and lacking power, it was missing a piece […]
