Well the Baja 1000 started on the 15th of November and since it was close by I went to watch the start of the race in Ensenada. The race is a monster- 1000 miles across dirt roads and trails. There are pit stops but no sleep. You just drive. The guys that do it fast can do it in around 24 hours. Guys that are slower or less experienced can take up to 40 hours to complete. And of course you have to drive on these rough trails through the night. I arrived too late to see all the categories starting (they started at 5:30am) but it was fun seeing the trucks up close and watching them as they whipped through a few Ensenada side roads and the into a dry water canal that lead them out of the city. After they were all gone I drove up into the country and actually drove down one of the better dirt roads that make up the Baja 1000.
