SCORE-Rosarito-Desert-Challenge-Logo-8-12-16ROSARITO BEACH, Mexico — With less than two weeks before the start of something spectacularly new for SCORE desert racers, this week’s pre-race schedule includes the drawing for starting positions within each class as well as pre-running on both days this weekend.

The internationally-televised Rosarito Beach 20th SCORE Desert Challenge, Round 3 of the four-race 2016 SCORE World Desert Championship, will be held next Thursday to Sunday (Sept. 15-18) in Mexico’s Baja California. Starting and finishing just south of Rosarito Beach, the colorful resort area on the Pacific Ocean located just 19 miles from the U.S. Border south of San Diego, it marks the first time in its storied history that SCORE International has held a race in the Rosarito Beach area.
