Thanks for the info SB!
In goes the vacation request NOW!!
Rooms and Flights all Booked !!!!!!
I hope you booked the Cabo Azul in Cabo. It is where the finish is as well as the awards. Mark Post (Owner and NORRA/SCORE racer) gives all of the entries a HUGE discount and the place is FUCK'n amazing!!!!!!!
Yea, no doubt... the place was wild
YES SIR !!!!!!
Mark took care of us !!!!!!
Any word on classes or rule changes?
Nope. Plenty of stuff has been worked on already, I've re-written the timing/scoring/penalties rules, but it won't get posted till things are ready. On classes/car/bike rules, I wouldn't expect a lot of change.
But... if there are class rules that anyone feels should be altered, I can give you two good pieces of advice:
What won't help at all: talking about it here. It will change nothing. Sorry guys.
What might help: _call_ the folks in charge and talk about what you're thinking, _and_ follow up with detailed, written rules emailed to them. I'm talking about drafting the actual language that would be placed in the rule book.
I'm getting excited, making plans already. :)
Yes, the starts were an issue, but the "if you miss your start time, the clock starts" solution has safety and liability issues, so that's not the solution NORRA will implement. There are other better ways to manage it.
Mornning First Start time of day ( you already have stage start ruels)
At ever SCORE,BITD, race I haved raced this is what happens (EASY FIX !!!! )
Trying to tighten up bike sizes and Fuel tank size Requierments
EXP: Class MH Bikes 700cc and up as produced by mfr and must have at least 5 gal fuel tank capacity
Class MI Bikes 451cc- 699cc as produced by mfr and must have at least 5 gal fuel tank capacity
Maybe a New class ML 250cc - 450cc as produced by mfr and must have at least 5 gal fuel tank capacity
Trying to get the MC Start Time penalties in place (This is a Must ) EASY FIX!!!
EXP: if you miss your start time, the clock starts and you must start after ALL on time MC's start.
TRUST me , they would only miss there start time once!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Might even change the results.
Not many midsize displacement bikes have 5+ gallons of fuel from the factory, well.... except the bike Baja Dad is bringing Maybe the high cap mid weight class should just be a spec 640 ADV class?
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 !!!!
I'm bringing my wife along this time, glad to know it won't be all middle aged fat guys
Are you riding this time?
No, I'm not ready yet. Working on a team for 2014.
I'll chip in for that Mike plans on running a vintage bike, so I'll be his pit bitch. This desert racing stuff is like sandy crack The Wife is excited about going but we won't be squatting, she wants nicer accommodations
