I haven't ever seen a light weight bike with 5+ gallons from the factory, does one exist? Maybe Baja Dad means the displacement from the manufacturer, not the fuel cap?

Regardless, I hope to be there
Yes Displacement of Motor from the factory
Fuel tank Size should drop to min 4 gal to allow (IMS,Clark,Aceribs,etc)
They do not like the Idea of carring Gas on the Riders Body ( safty)

I help NORRA Back in 2011 to Establish the Modern Bike class for the 2012 Rally

The Mid size Bike class is for the open mid size bikes
KTM 500.530,620,640,690 Husa 570,DR 650,Honda XR 650 Kaw 650 just to name a few

Big bike class was made for the KTM 950 990, BMW,etc
( Hoping to get some ADV type BIG BIKE Guys to come ride Baja and have a little fun Race atmosphere.
All I can say is it is only getting BETTER !!!!

Question for those who have done this before...

I'll be a first-timer in 2013. How many chase trucks do you plan for? If more than one, do you plan a Northern crew and a Southern crew? I'm assuming the chase crews assist with the daily maintenance at the end of each day (oil changes, tire/wheel changes, air filters, etc.). Any other typical duties?

Thanks!

one will be fine with sufficient chase route and timing scheduling and planning. I chased for two 950's last year and simply because I didn't know what I didn't know about roads and times and routes, I missed them at a few pits. BUT, they used MAG 7 for fuel, so I was just a bonus pit if I could keep up.... which I couldn't, despite my best efforts...

You did good, even though you had two guys to help but leaving an hour earlier might have worked better I think. I'm guessing that we didn't need you in the morning before the start?

NORRA ANNOUNCES 2013 MEXICAN 1000 RALLY DATES
-- General Tire and NORRA Also Create Popular Display at Lucas Oil Off-Road Expo --

OCTOBER 10, 2012: With just under 200 days left before the drop of the green flag for the 2013 running of the General Tire NORRA Mexican 1000, the sanctioning body confirmed its official dates for next year’s event – April 27-May 1, 2013 – at this weekend’s huge Lucas Oil Off-Road Expo in Pomona, Calif.

Following a format instituted by the National Off Road Racing Association (NORRA) in 2012 and endorsed by nearly all of this year’s racers, chase crews and event VIPs, once again the vintage-flavored Baja rally will start on Saturday, April 27 with a unique Race Vehicle Show and Tech Inspection at the historic bull ring in Mexicali, Baja, Mexico. The 1,200 mile trek to the rally’s finish line will begin on Sunday, April 28th as competitors enjoy a scenic run to the first overnight stop at Bahia de Los Angeles. On Monday, April 29th the longest day of the event takes place from Bahia de Los Angeles to Loreto. The challenging Day 3 will take place on Tuesday, April 30th from Loreto to the seaside town of La Paz. And like last year, Day 4 will consist of a fun run from La Paz to San Jose del Cabo on May 1st with a seaside Land’s End Party and Driver’s Awards Presentation taking place that evening.

In keeping with a newly created NORRA tradition, registration will officially open for next year’s four-day rally on New Years Day, January 1, beginning at noon, (PST). NORRA is expected to release additional rally information, formatting and rules over the course of the coming weeks in preparation for opening event registration. A field of more than 150 entries are expected for the 2013 Mexican 1000 rally, a 50-percent increase over this year’s off and-on road stage rally.

The announcement was made at the Lucas Oil Off Road Expo in Pomona, Calif. With the largest off-road industry show in America as its backdrop, the massive General Tire booth was the location for a highly popular display of NORRA Mexican 1000 vehicles and booth for event information. One of the most successful Off-Road Expos in history, the 12th annual event attracted a reported crowd of 60,000 fans and more than 300 exhibitors over its two-day run.

In addition to revealing the dates, NORRA President Mike Pearlman also took the occasion to personally deliver the organization’s unique thank-you plaques to its family of event sponsors including Jim Riley (Azunia Tequila), Chris Anderson, at left (American Racing Wheel) and Michael DeHaas (KC Hilites).

Known as “The Happiest Race on Earth”, the Mexican 1000 has gained a reputation for bringing fun and a shared sense of adventure back to Baja off-road racing. The one-of-a-kind, once-a-year rally spotlights vintage off-road vehicles, motorcycles and ATVs, as well as rally cars, a limited number of modern desert racecars, and classes for prerunner-type trucks and buggies. The four-day, on and off-road rally offers teams high-speed off-road driving with unparalleled views of Mexico’s scenic Baja peninsula, as well as offering new levels of the hospitality and social camaraderie that is the heart of the General Tire Mexican 1000 experience.
