Vehicles, drivers and contact info

This famous off road racing covers a thousand miles of desert, bush, pavement and rock trail along the Baja California peninsula, in México.

The terrain is not the only hazard the racers encounter.

They also have to contend with the livestock wandering into the path of racers and booby traps set by some spectators.

Tecate Score Baja has two versions and both are well worth watching.
