The Cars of the NORRA Mexican 1000 Contingency

Baja is synonymous with off-road racing and draws off-road enthusiasts likes bees to honey or like a dog to a bone. Off-road obsessions often start at a young age with fantasies of going fast through the dirt in fantastic places around the world and culminate with the adventure-bound young at heart road tripping down to Baja to explore, watch, or join in the race.

The NORRA Mexican 1000 is a unique race. With many nods to off-road racing history (including a whole bunch of very cool vintage race cars and trucks), the NORRA is a less stressful, more laid back race for those who want to turn childhood fantasies of racing in a vintage vehicle into reality. Given the chance to go down and check out Mexico and the race is something that is hard for any off-road obsessed enthusiast to shrug off. So when we got the chance we grabbed our camera, packed a few bags and hit the road to adventure.

April 22, 2017 was contingency for the race and we got a chance to spend some time checking out the race cars in Ensenada, Mexico, before the race. Our plan is to cover a bit of the race through a few different channels, explore, go wheeling and have an adventure. Look forward to a few different upcoming articles about our trip, but with the trip just having begun we can’t help but share…even if it’s just a little bit. Here’s what we saw at contingency, just a few of the 260 cars, trucks, and motorcycles entered in this year’s race.
