-The BFGoodrich Baja 1000 35th
edition took place, as every year, in sunny Baja. These time the
space tech rigs sorted in 24 Pro and 5 Sportman classes wrapped
up the year in a cross peninsula, more likely a -cross bush roots
thorn cactus- inferno Ensenada-La Paz. Class winners are determined
along with the overall race winner in Pro Cars/Truks and Pro Motorcycle.
After 18 hours of driving the first legendary pioneers came into
La Paz. Through three days, the 243 total entries from 30 U.S.
states and 10 countries come into the finish line at La Paz....
a 1017.56 mile quest. Pro Cars, Trucks, Pro Motorcycles, Motorcycles
& ATVs have a time limit 40 hours to complete the ordeal.
Along the trail, the explorers are given tokens in every check
point race pit, to ensure the proper followship of the designated
course. The layout and maps are given out on the last minute....
so all rigs in their given classes stand a fair chance. With no
characteristic geological accidents...(a plain, flat peninsula....
no high peaks like in other races), the navigators had no reference
points to find an easy way out. The entry budget to race on a
self sustained motorcycle is roughtly 8000 dlls all the way up
to the 300,000 dlls range. Who can not notice Ed & Tim Herbst
V8 powered, 750 horsepower Beast and its tailing chopper.

- Wham... ouch... missed it. Had smacked myself on the
back of my neck and the buzzing persist all around me. Just
hope the flying multi-leged, furry black, key-chain size intruders
dont get to friendly with me. Waiting for 4 hours now, posted
out on the black night for a vehicle of any kind. Remainds me
of the 5 consecutive Eco-Challenge endurance competitions I
have covered for Discovery Channel. Only these time Iam waiting
on the rigs and not following a 4 brotherhood team thru mountains,
valleys, ice carveses, caves, oceans, camel rideing, jumbaring
wasterfalls, etc..on their 300 mile penitence. Something
is sure.... (1)- these time I can get runned over. And (2)-
like in the Sahara and Australia, Iam exposed to extreme climates.
Fainting hot in the day and freezing cold at night. Also share
the loving local fauna too, so that I dont get lonely. Have
to be respectful with the semi dormed diamon head snakes, any
number of crawling thingies to my boots and all the imaginable
flying biters and stingers you can think of. The aborigines
tought me well to stump my feet when walking to scare away snakes....
wonder who is more frightened. Have to be on a watch out cause
its pitch black on the desert and the monster size rigs fly
over men size cactuses and bushes with no compasion. Their 36
inch rubbers are fierceless cheered up by the roaring 750 hp.
All soaked up in moskito repellent I dont care for my gear slipping
on my fingers.... just practicing to manualy fast focus on my
lens. Have to menage to properly flash expose, no burn-outs,
in a milisec with no focusing reference on my viewfinder....
in pitch black. The sky is beautiful, countless stars... just
wished the blasting 4x4 will call the day and pose for me on
a bulb long exposure for a fine art calendar promo.
Gear- tree bodies, monopod, tripod, all sort of lenses,
tall booths, proper cloths and camping gear, raincoat, flash light,
survival kit and lots of patience.
