(Agua Dulce, Calif.,) While the world enjoys this week’s Christmas holiday, racers and adventure seekers from many parts of the globe are looking forward to their own off-road motorsports tradition. With just 140 days left before the fifth annual General Tire NORRA Mexican 1000, event registration will open as it has for the past three years – on New Year’s Day, January 1, 2014 at exactly 12:00pm (noon) Pacific Standard Time (PST).
NORRA’S’ electronic registration process takes place entirely online to insure a fair process for those wishing to secure spots for this increasingly popular and wholly unique motorsports adventure. Early registration not only guarantees a vehicle entry, but also provides competitors with their choice of numbers, up-front Day 1 starting positions by class and a comfirmed hotel reservation for the rally’s first overnight for four-wheel vehicles in Bahia De Los Angeles (first-come, first-served).
“New Years Day is really like Christmas morning for the entire NORRA crew,” explained National Off-Road Racing Association (NORRA) President Mike Pearlman. “Last January we accepted nearly 80 entries for the 2013 rally at the dawn of a new year, and we expect to exceed that number next Wednesday. We also felt strongly that we will be hosting more than 200 vehicles at next year’s rally.”
