Darren Hardesty's Class 10 buggy harks back to the early days of Baja racing when many considered water-cooled engines and their fragile radiators to be a liability rather than an asset. Hardesty's "10 car" uses an air-cooled VW engine for lightweight simplicity, and its single-seat configuration further reduces the payload. He narrowly missed the Class 10 win at Terrible's Cup. Keep an eye out for this guy - in Baja, he's usually near the front of the entire buggy and truck field.
