AGUA DULCE, CALIF. - The Yokohama NORRA Mexican 1000 Presented by Meyers Manx is unlike any other event. Traveling the Baja Peninsula from top to bottom, you will experience the time of your life. That’s why it’s important to document your adventure. The memories you make will last forever, especially if you contact one of the professional photographers who cover the race. NORRA has assembled the best in the business to document the rally for us each year, and you can do the same. Bink Designs, Getsome Photo, Fotosol, and Ernesto Araiza will be providing coverage this year. If you want professional photographs of your team in action, contact them before the race to secure a spot on their roster. Don’t leave it to chance; they cover all competitors, but if you contract with them beforehand, they will give special attention to your team.
Not only are each of these media companies top professionals, but they all have tons of Baja knowledge. Baja is rugged, remote and spectacularly beautiful. These photographers know where to go and how to capture the action. They operate in conditions that would intimidate most photographers, but they do it because they love Baja as much as you do. If you get with them before the event it will be one less thing to deal with. You know you’ll be covered with striking photos for your team members, your media, and those who just can’t make it down to share the fun. There is no better way to share what the Mexican 1000 is all about with friends, family or colleagues than to show them actual photos.
BINK DESIGNS is geared up to capture the exciting moments at contingency and closely follow the cars during the race. Their daily STEEL-IT updates can be expected on NORRA's social media channels.

Known as “The Happiest Race On Earth!” The NORRA Mexican 1000 is entirely about having fun and creating memories that will last a lifetime. Competitors experience the most stunningly beautiful Baja scenery as they make their way down the entire length of the Baja Peninsula. After each day of racing, there is enough free time to experience a different location in Baja with your friends and family. Each overnight stop has its own unique charm and character. There is no better way to experience Baja than at the Mexican 1000, and it’s open to just about anything with 2 or 4 wheels. They even have a safari class that allows street legal vehicles, and follows the route at a more relaxed pace. Led by Baja regulars, and racing legends, the Safari class is a guided tour that will turn anyone into a Baja veteran. Go to norra.com to find out how you can join in on all the fun. Make sure to preserve your memories.

### Good Vibes. Good Times! ###
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, STEEL-IT, Raceline Wheels / Nomad Wheels / Mobelwagen Wheels, Optima Batteries, Hellwig Suspension Products, McMillin Racing, Rugged Radios, Multitool USA, Cervecería Transpeninsular, PCI Race Radios, Schampa, Baja Bush Pilots, The Fab School, Mag7 Pits, the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame (ORMHOF), B3KREATIV, and many more.
