This awesome video is all about the 2013 Baja 1000 an off-road race that is held each year on Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula in November. The Baja 1000 has been running since 1967 and was originally named the NORRA (National Off-Road Racing Association) Mexican 1000 Rally.
2012 Baja champion BJ Baldwin returned to the race in 2013 to defend his championship and secure everlasting glory with back to back victories. What makes BJ’s victories even more special is that he “ironmans’ the race, meaning he races the full distance himself with no second or often third drivers used by some of the other teams.
This short film, shows him ‘pre-running’ the race with his team to give him as much preparation as possible. Pre-running allows the drivers to memorise parts of the course and to understand all the dangers and tight corners.
