Dozens of vintage vehicles are making their way south through the Baja Peninsula for the NORRA Mexican 1000. The annual race is headed to Cabo for the first time since the pandemic began. Last year’s race was a rare loop, starting and finishing in Ensenada. The 2020 version was cancelled by COVID.
One of the most iconic vehicles is running the in the rally. The original Big Oly that recently sold for over a million dollars is back in the dirt. The last time it raced, Parnelli Jones was behind the wheel. There are also several Myers-Manx vehicles in the rally.
The Rally has no shortage of Baja legends competing. The course will take competitors south down the Baja Peninsula over five days ending in San Jose Del Cabo. The first day of racing takes the competitors into San Felipe. Every night there is a party at the finish line, complete with drinks and food. Organizers call it the “Happiest Race on Earth”.
