announced “Pre-season” entries opened to the 2018 edition of BAJA RALLY October 8-13. This is particularly good news for early planners, teams of racers and returning navigators, all of whom will take advantage of 30-40% off the standard cost of entry during the month of December. The normal entry fee structure begins on New Years Day, starting with first the first of 3 levels of pricing. Apart from the cash discount on entry fees in December, pre-season allows riders riders and teams to draw a low running number and/or choose their number from 10-50.

With an emphasis on expanding the field of UTV Rally racers, BAJA RALLY officials made the announcement Saturday morning in a “live seminar” this at the International Of Road & UTV Expo in Scottsdale, AZ. The successful consumer event, organized by Andy Myers from Never Stop Riding, enabled the rally to reach out to pro UTV racers and team sponsors about getting trained for cross country UTV rally racing.


“We’ll continue BAJA RALLY SCHOOL training sessions each month through July 2018”, explains rally chairman Scotty “Breauxman” Bloom. “Adding Malle Moto and Quad Pro classes to next year’s rally, the school is gradually building a core-base of racers for BAJA RALLY and others like it. A key focus for our team is training UTV champions from other series like SCORE and BITD and prepping them for the easy crossover into rally.”  

Bloom said the next BAJA RALLY SCHOOL date is scheduled for January 19-21. The 3-day training academy, which has proven quite challenging even for professional racers, has produced 20 graduates this year and six who went on to race BAJA RALLY 5.
