Back in 2010, the National Off Road Racing Association (NORRA) brought back the Mexican 1000. Now, the Mexican 1000 is known as the “happiest race on Earth,” offering classes for vintage vehicles, dirt bikes, UTVs, and modern off-road race cars. NORRA does truly look to honor the past and forge the future.

The off-road rally, co-created by promoter Mike Pearlman, blends both off-road racing and rally elements, to combine a number of special stages on the Baja California, Mexico, racecourse that are linked together by controlled-speed highway sections. This one-a-year race brings out off-road legends along with the current-generation of racers for this unique event.
