The much celebrated SCORE, Baja 500 - this year the 42nd Tecate SCORE Baja 500 - has a long and colorful history. The course wanders back and forth across northern Baja Mexico giving each participant a little taste of everything that the peninsula has to offer. From the start in metropolitan Ensenada, across dry lake beds, through canyons, over mountains and along the coast the challenges and sights are never disappointing. Some sections have been raced on for years and yet, there is always an uneasy feeling in the minds of the racers who are familiar with the un-expected character of Baja.
