SCORE 500 Racing Ensenada To Ensenada

To win an off road race in Baja you need enormous intestinal fortitude and a never say die attitude. When the racing team of H12:One, the Class 11 VW Bug, was only two miles from the finish line last year they broke down. It was ridiculous.

Jot This Down

The federal Chamber of Deputies has approved legislation that will make 066 the official, nation-wide emergency number for civil protection and emergency police response.

Que Pasa in Baja?

Tourism update. Nicolas Saad, owner of the San Nicolas Hotel in Ensenada, has spoken out against the proposed merging of municipal tourism funds into one larger statewide fund.

Call for Volunteers

The Baja Blues Fest is coming back around  and their hotline is beckoning all artists, vendors, and volunteers to fill out applications, which are available in English and Spanish.
