ENSENADA, Baja California, Mexico—Following late on-site registration on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, 296 total vehicles have been processed as official entries so far for this weekend’s internationally televised 51st SCORE Baja 1000, the season-finale of the four-race 2018 SCORE World Desert Championship. The race will be held over a rugged race course of 806.76 miles.
The race and all festivities surrounding it are being held in Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico, the seaside port on the Pacific Ocean, 80 miles south of San Diego.
With classes for Pro and Sportsman cars, trucks, UTVs, motorcycles and quads, racers from 41 U.S. States and 18 countries entered. The elapsed-time race will start at 4 a.m. PT on Friday for the motorcycle/quad classes followed by the start of the car/truck/UTV classes at 10:30 a.m. PT. While the fastest finishers are expected to finish in approximately 16 hours, all vehicles will have a 36-hour time lime to become an official finisher in the epic event.
The race will start and finish once again on Blvd. Costero with the Bahia de Todos Santos on the West side and the historic Riviera del Pacifico Cultural Center on the East side in the heart of Ensenada.
The race includes 39 entries in the marquee SCORE Trophy Truck division (Including six SCORE TT Legend vehicles for drivers over 50 years old) which is completing its 25th season as the premier racing division in the sport.
Internet streaming from the start/finish line as well as vehicle tracking will be available at www.score-international.com. SCORE live streaming announcers will be Rat Sult and Dave Arnold.
