 Baja 1000 Organizers Pay for Road Damages

There’s a bit of a stir brewing in Southern Baja, and it’s all about the aftermath of a high-octane event. SCORE International, known for its adrenaline-pumping races, recently made a payment to the state’s roads department. The amount? Nearly $18,000 USD, meant for repairing the dirt roads damaged by the race. But here’s the catch – the governor isn’t too pleased with this figure.

Victor Castro, the governor of Southern Baja, has voiced his concerns loud and clear. He’s of the opinion that $18,000 just doesn’t cut it. In his words, “it’s not enough even for heavy equipment’s diesel!” Considering the scale of the event and the impact it has on the local infrastructure, his frustration is understandable. After all, a company that generates millions of dollars could, perhaps, contribute a bit more to mend the wear and tear caused by their event.

This situation sheds light on the delicate balance between hosting large-scale events and maintaining public infrastructure. It’s a reminder that while such events can bring excitement and economic benefits, they also come with responsibilities. Hopefully, this opens up a dialogue about fair compensation and responsible event management. After all, it’s all about finding that sweet spot where everyone, including our dirt roads, comes out a winner.
