More than 325 cars, trucks, motorcycles, and ATVs will begin their 673-mile charge through Baja California this Friday once the flag drops for the 42nd annual SCORE Baja 1000. To accommodate enthusiasts who wish to follow the action live, BFGoodrich Tires and International Racing Consultants/Tracking International have partnered to bring up-to-the-minute tracking and live video courtesy of a dedicated micro-site available through BFGoodrichTires.com. Tracking is available for all BFGoodrich Tires drivers and competitors who have registered with IRC/TI.
“We are excited to bring the TI viewers closer to the event with live and behind the scenes coverage. Our viewers will have the opportunity to see the SCORE Baja 1000 from the participant’s point of view and get a true feeling of the Baja 1000,” said Raymond Barre of Tracking International.
Live tracking starts at 6:30 a.m. PST with the departure of the motorcycle and ATV classes. Cars and trucks are scheduled to begin the endurance race at either 10:30 a.m. PST or three hours after the last ATV has left the start line. Tracking information will be updated in two-minute intervals throughout the race.
In addition to tracking live progress, the micro-site will also have video from the BFGoodrich Tires pit locations and start/finish lines. The live video will begin streaming on Thursday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. PST for pre-race coverage and on Friday and Saturday from start to finish.
To celebrate previous Baja 1000 races, a photo/video gallery has been added to the micro-site. Once the race ends, exclusive behind-the-scenes footage will also be available.
