Moto Road Book Navigation Training And Certification For The 2023 Yokohama NORRA Mexican 1000!

AGUA DULCE, CALIF. - In order to compete in the NORRA Mexican 1000 all motorcycle and ATV riders must pass the certification test or they will not be allowed to compete. If they competed last year, they do not need to re-rest.

All of the information you need to pass is contained in the online classes we held earlier in the year. If you practiced and participated in the training you will be much better off as the navigation has taken a step up on this year's course to make it much better. Yes, there is more navigation.

NORRA is paying for your class if you have entered the race and has extended that well past the Feb 28 original deadline. If you need to view the class please do the following:

  1. Email with NORRA CLASS In the SUBJECT LINE
  2. Let him know your NAME, TEAM NUMBER and Sign Up DATE and he will get you access to the class videos through the EMAIL you used to sign up.
  3. We will do a follow-up Q&A session soon (announced through email to competitors) so write down any questions that you have that are not answered in the class.

NORRA is paying for a class that costs $1100 for anyone else to take, so we hope that you will take advantage of this.

If you have viewed the videos and are ready for the test, please do the following:

  1. Email with NORRA TEST in the SUBJECT LINE.
  2. Make sure you include your NAME, TEAM NUMBER and Sign Up DATE and the EMAIL you used to sign up and we will send the test to you.
  3. The test is PASS/FAIL and if it is obvious that you did not take the class we will require that you watch the entirety of the classes before we resend the test. You may be asked follow-up questions about your answers additionally. If you feel you have enough experience in Rally Navigation to go straight to the test, please email with your list of events you have competed in and we will advise.
  4. The reason for NORRA switching to roadbook navigation is for safety. This training and certification is part of that process. It allows for better courses and the safety of you, fellow riders and locals.

Beginning in 2010, the National Off Road Racing Association (NORRA) began promoting a rebirth of the NORRA Mexican 1000 rally. The unique off-road rally was co-created by promoter Mike Pearlman to consist of special stages (unlimited speed timed stages in the dirt) linked together by controlled speed liaison / transit sections (highway). The one-of-a-kind, once-a-year, five-day rally includes vintage off-road vehicles and motorcycles, as well as modern pre-runners, trucks, buggies, UTVs, bikes and desert Rally Raid cars.

Pearlman’s late father Ed and others established the first running of the NORRA Mexican 1000 off-road rally in November of 1967, which eventually became internationally recognized and evolved into the Baja 1000 in the mid-1970’s.

NORRA enjoys corporate partnerships with Yokohama Tire, Meyers Manx, Bilstein Shock Absorbers, Rugged Radios, STEEL-IT, Raceline Wheels / Nomad Wheels / Mobelwagen Wheels, Adler Motorsports, McMillin Racing, Maxima Racing Oils, Multitool USA, Biltwell, Cervecería Transpeninsular, PCI Race Radios, Schampa, K&N, Baja Bush Pilots, The Fab School, Mag7 Pits, the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame (ORMHOF), B3KREATIV, and many more.
