ROSARITO BEACH, Baja California, Mexico – With late entries for motorcycles and quads being accepted on Saturday, a total of 132 teams are officially entered as of tonight for this week’s Rosarito Beach 20th SCORE Desert Challenge. Round 3 of the four-race 2016 SCORE World Desert Championship is being held through Sunday in Rosarito Beach, Baja California, Mexico, 19 miles south of the U.S. Border at San Diego.
With a special race format, Round 3 of the four-race 2016 SCORE World Desert Championship will be held Thursday through Sunday in Mexico’s Baja California. The actual start/finish area, hot pits and primary spectator area will be at Los Manantiales off of old Highway 1 south of central Rosarito.
Unique for SCORE, the 20th time using this race format will see all classes racing a total of four laps over a surprisingly rugged 32.1-mile race course (128.4 total miles) split into two, two-lap sessions.
Nearly 150 total entries are expected at the start line with entries from 17 U.S. States and five countries anticipated. Classes for cars, trucks and UTVs will be divided into four groups, running their first two laps on Friday and their final two laps on Saturday.
The motorcycle and quad classes will run as one large group, running all of their laps on Sunday, their first two in the morning and the final two in the afternoon following a break.
Racing for the cars, trucks and UTVs will start at 6:20 a.m. PT on Friday and Saturday and the course will close each day at 6 p.m. PT.
The featured SCORE Trophy Truck division for high-tech, 850-horsepower unlimited production trucks will start their laps along with the Trophy Truck spec class each day at 12:40 p.m. PT followed by the group including the unlimited Class 1, Class 10 and SCORE Lites and 3:20 p.m. PT as the final race of each day.
On Sunday, motorcycles and quads will start their first two laps at 10:30 a.m. PT and their final two laps starting at 2 p.m. PT with their course closing at 3:55 p.m.
The start order for the second session for all classes will be an invert of the start order from the first session.
