Anyone around here into these types of races?
 
Ever been to a Baja 500/1000? If so do tell!
 
Love Baja 500/1000s! The coverage/footage/tracking of vehicles is insane nowadays!
 
Baja 1000 going on right now if anyone is interested (the channel keeps up w updates etc):
 
Thanks Starlink!
 
Instagram is full of sick footage/shots.

Crewed motorcycles a long time ago for both the 500 and 1000 with Bel-Ray oil.  A hurricane came through one year and wasted the course, causing vehicles to be delayed 10 to 12 hours due to the carnage the storm wreaked on the course. Was total turmoil. At the time our rider was leading the U500 class, but his bike died from dust on Laguna Salada. We were in the extended Dodge  Bel-Ray van. Problem was, a lot of teams were using Bel-Ray banners to mark their pits, but after 8 to 10 hours those crews left to get some shut-eye.  So we would have these tired, starving riders running on fumes pulling up to the van requesting assistance. We did what we could, but we only had fuel/tires/parts/food for our two riders, so we would go scavenger hunting in the empty/abandoned pits nearby  to try to help them out. Interesting trip.

Wow this sounds wild! I’m always amazed at the endurance of those Moto/Quad riders.

Tons of good stuff on YouTube filmed with GoPros and good cameras on peoples phones etc:
