See map above. 40 dedicated pit spots will be available at $100 each that can be purchased online on a first come first served basis (www.norra.com/fc/store). Teams can setup tents near their vehicle pits. MAG 7 will have their main pit there also to help anyone that needs a hand. NORRA ops will be adjacent to the Start/Finish on Main Street; there will be a bonfire area, music, and a big tent set up. "La Gringa" Bar and Restaurant has a nice resting area to enjoy some ceviche, beef and fish tacos, cold beer, margaritas and prepared drinks. La Gringa will also host the drivers meetings and briefings. Pit City will have showers and bathrooms, a camping area and parking for chasers and trailers.

ABOUT NORRA

Beginning in 2010, the National Off Road Racing Association (NORRA) began promoting a rebirth of the NORRA Mexican 1000 rally. The unique off-road rally was co-created by promoter Mike Pearlman to consist of special stages (unlimited speed timed stages in the dirt) linked together by controlled speed liaison / transit sections (highway). The one-of-a-kind, once-a-year, four-day rally includes vintage off-road vehicles and motorcycles, rally cars, a limited group of modern desert racecars and classes for prerunner trucks and buggies.

Pearlman’s late father Ed and others established the first running of the NORRA Mexican 1000 off-road rally in November of 1967, which eventually became internationally recognized and evolved into the Baja 1000 in the mid-1970s.

The NORRA Mexican 1000 is supported by General Tire, American Racing Wheel, South Point Hotel Casino, Walker Evans Racing, Azunia Tequila, KC HiLites, Bilstein Shock Absorbers and Mastercraft/Impact Safety.
