Yokohama NORRA Mexican 1000 RALLY

No other racing event immerses competitors in the food, drink, culture, and beauty of Baja, like the Yokohama NORRA Mexican 1000 – "The Happiest Race On Earth!", and the competitors run the gamut from offroad racing icons and current stars, to adventure seeking average Joes and well-travelled lovers of Baja. NORRA has classes for bikes, quads, UTV’s, and 4-wheel classes for everything from vintage vehicles to state-of-the-art race cars. There’s even the Safari Baja Expedition for those who want to participate, but not compete. NORRA pays homage to the past and celebrates the future.

Stella EVO III unit with the SPICA unit will be used for tracking and safety. Anube will supply the units, which you will rent from them when you register online for the event.

If you already have a Stella mount from previous NORRA races you can still use it for the Stella device. But you will need to purchase a SPICA mount from Anube if you don’t have one of those. The SPICA is a GPS data logger and does not have an external antenna. You can order what you need from:

If you order mounting hardware close to the race date, Anube will bring it to tech in Ensenada rather than shipping it.

Border Crossing

Details about border crossing will be distributed as a Rally Alert shortly before most teams will be departing for the event. At that time, you will be able to register all vehicles crossing the border with your entry.

Plan ahead! You will need the following:

  • A valid passport or passport card with an expiration date more than six months later than the date you enter Mexico. You can use a passport that has less than six months remaining as long as you leave Mexico before it expires, but you will need to apply for your FMM card in person at the border crossing.
  • Vaccinations. Discuss with your doctor at least two months in advance of travel. See the CDC Mexico Travel page for current U.S. recommendations.
  • Depending on your country of citizenship, you will need either a visa or an FMM (tourist card). U.S. citizens need an FMM. For other countries, check with a Mexican embassy or consulate in your area. Click here to get an FMM within 30 days of travel. You complete the form online and then print it. You need to get it validated at the border if you drive into Mexico. We are currently verifying the status of the FMM requirement with Mexico Migración
  • Valid registration for each vehicle.
  • Valid driver’s license for each driver. Mexico accepts licenses from your home country if they are in English or Spanish. They also accept International Driving Permits.
  • Be sure to bring some Mexican pesos. The best exchange rates are generally found in San Ysidro, California. In Mexico, check the rates at casas de cambio. If you use Mexican ATMs, you will incur high fees from both your bank and the Mexican bank.
  • There are limits on carrying certain items across the border, including the number of spare tires and spare parts. Some items must be declared, such as if you bring more than $10,000 cash. Fuel in containers is not allowed. More information at the Welcome to Mexico webpage and in the upcoming NORRA border crossing Rally Alert.
