Yokohama NORRA 500 Media Pass

NORRA welcomes our friends in the media to join us at the 2023 Yokohama NORRA 500 presented. No other events offer the rich history, amazing tales, interesting characters and spectacular backdrops that the NORRA rallies deliver. Every stage of the rally has its own unique flavor; encompassing the challenge and beauty of the Baja Peninsula. There is a class for every competitor and a story for every audience. The list of drivers entered is just impressive. Drivers range from living legends, and current pros to your average Joe who has a love of speed, and adventure. We also offer the Safari class, sponsored by Myers Manx. It is a non-competitive expedition for those who want to experience the NORRA 500, but don't want to race.

We have a new route for the NORRA 500, starting in Ensenada and staying overnight in San Felipe before returning to Ensenada. It still includes racer favorites like the pine forest and Mikes Peak (for select classes) and has a spectacular finish on the beach in San Felipe. New for this race, the Pro Turbo UTV class and the 2000 class will have a qualifying run on a short course on the afternoon of the 19th to determine start order. The NORRA 500’s 2-day race format is intended to reduce complicated planning and logistics. It’s an event that racers can easily manage while including friends and family. Go to to find out how to join the fun!

If you're in the media and you haven't already completed your online application, sign up today as the rally is quickly approaching. The media pass application deadline is Monday, October 16th at 5 p.m. PDT.
