SCORE Baja 1000
Baja 1000 has become one of the most prestigious racing events in motorsports – claiming the throne as the longest non-stop, point-to-point race in the world. Located in Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico, the race attracts drivers from around the globe to compete across unrelenting terrain and grueling weather conditions. Originally imagined in the 1960s by Bud Elkin as a way to test Honda dirt bikes, the Baja 1000 is now host to several classes of racers – motorcycles, ATVs, UTVs, trucks and buggies and pins its competitors against each other for over 1,000 miles. The Baja 1000 is a true test of endurance, engineering, and mental fortitude – on average demanding 20-25hrs of racing to complete.
Why we like it: For us, the Baja 1000 is the pinnacle of off-road racing. It’s the true testament of man and machine. KMC does product testing with our athletes who race in the Baja 1000.
