21st Tecate SCORE Baja 250 moved to Ensenada

Round 2 of the SCORE Desert Series to run
from Ensenada to Santo Tomas on March 10

LOS ANGELES—Because of ongoing political issues beyond its control, SCORE International was notified by the municipal authorities of San Felipe Monday that next week’s 21st Annual Tecate SCORE Baja 250 could not be held there, forcing SCORE to secure a new venue. SCORE has announced that next week’s race will start in Ensenada and finish in Santo Tomas, Baja California, Mexico, on the Pacific Ocean side of the majestic peninsula. The race has previously been held in San Felipe, on the eastern side of the Baja California peninsula.

“Due to irreconcilable differences between the city of San Felipe and one of the San Felipe Ejido land groups, the race is being moved to Ensenada”, said Sal Fish, SCORE CEO and President. “SCORE deeply regrets any inconvenience this may cause, however, this situation has absolutely nothing to do with past or present conduct of SCORE International. We are sincerely grateful to the city of Ensenada, Santo Tomas and the other areas along the new race course for allowing us to move this great event to another course.”

With a race-record field of 374 entries, to date, from 15 U.S. States, Mexico, Canada, England, Italy and New Zealand, Round 2 of the six-race 2007 SCORE Desert Series, the World’s Foremost Desert Racing Series, will be the first of three races produced annually by SCORE in Mexico.

The finish line area for the point-to-point course of approximately 215 miles will be Santo Tomas, located 30 miles south of Ensenada. All vehicles will have a 9-hour time limit in the elapsed time race and vehicles will start in 30-second intervals.

SCORE officials expect to have the new course map posted on the SCORE website by Friday and the course will be marked and pre-running from Ojos Negros to the finish line in Santo Tomas will open this coming Saturday (March 3).

A race-record of 374 entries have been received to date, preparing to compete in 27 Pro and 6 Sportsman classes. The green flag will drop at 6 a.m. on Saturday, March 10, for the motorcycle and ATV classes, followed by the car and truck classes three hours later at approximately 10 a.m. The start line will be at the end of Avenida Ruiz in Ensenada, approx. two miles east of downtown.

To date, a race-record of 374 official entries from 15 States and six countries have officially entered the Tecate SCORE Baja 250, led by the unlimited Class 1 with 39, the featured SCORE Trophy-Truck division with 36, Class 1-2/1600 with 28, SCORE Lite with 26, Class 10 with 21 and Class 22 and Class 30 with 16 each. So far, 220 of the entries are cars or trucks and 154 are either motorcycles or ATVs. Late registration will be accepted up until race morning, virtually guaranteeing a final starting grid of more than 350 for the first time in the colorful 20-year history of the popular race. The previous entry record of 362 set last year and last year’s 341 starters were the most in the event’s history.

Pre-race festivities at the Tecate SCORE Baja 250 will include the colorful SCORE Midway and tech inspection in downtown Ensenada from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Friday (March 9).

At 10 a.m. on Sunday (March 11), the awards celebration will be held poolside at the San Nicolas Hotel. Racer registration will be held at the San Nicolas from 2-7p.m. next Thursday and 8:30-4:30 p.m. next Friday.

The 2007 SCORE Desert Series also includes the chase for the $75,000 Kartek Off-Road contingency bonus to be awarded to several 2007 SCORE Class point champions along with the run for the $12,000 Toyota True Grit and Toyota Milestone Awards.

Current SCORE official annual sponsors are: BFGoodrich Tires-official tire, Sunoco Race Fuels/Bryant Petroleum-official fuel supplier, Bilstein-official shock, Instant Mexico Auto Insurance-official Mexican auto insurance, American Racing ATX Series-official wheel, Slime-official tire sealant, Airstar America-official space lighting provider and Red Bull,--official energy drink.
