It wasn’t too long ago that watching the world’s most recognized desert off-road race took a trip south of the border into Baja, Mexico. Like so many things today, technology can now bring this year’s 50th anniversary BFGoodrich SCORE Baja 1000 directly to our various computers and devices.
Under the guidance of SCORE International’s Roger Norman, in the past few years the live coverage of Baja off-road racing has expanded to new heights. While the physical logistics of a 1,134-mile race through the deserts of Mexico prevents complete coverage, for those interested in watching, and listening, to the drama, heartbreak and triumph of this year’s historic SCORE International provides several broadcasting options.
The race begins today at 10:00am (PST), with the front running Trophy-Trucks not expected to the finish line in La Paz until 8:00am tomorrow morning – some 22 hours later.
Here is a run-down of the coverage options and direct links to bring the dust and glory of the 50th Baja 1000 right to your living room or work place (just don’t get fired). Grab a cold cerveza, some chips and salsa and enjoy!
