SCORE International’s new era continues as online racer registration officially opens for one of the most popular motorsports events in the world—the 45th Tecate SCORE Baja 500 desert race.
Round 2 of the 2013 SCORE Desert Series will be held May 30-June 2 in Mexico’s Baja California Norte, starting and finishing in Ensenada, the seaside port on the Pacific Ocean, 80 miles south of San Diego.
Most of the world’s best desert racers will be in action at this year’s 45th anniversary of the Tecate SCORE Baja 500, the original desert race produced by SCORE on July 26, 1974.
The race will feature a course that includes new or seldom-used areas as several new festivities will be held surround the event as the celebration continues for the 40th season of SCORE International desert racing. In order to be included in the start drawing, entries must be received with full payment by 5 p.m. on Monday, April 22.
SCORE has also announced the pre-running on the race course will begin officially on Wednesday, May 8, except for the portion from the start to Ojos Negros (approximately 35 miles), which will be used in both directions during the race.
The new SCORE online racer registration system requires full payment of all entry fees based on four levels for cars and trucks, depending on the type of class a racer is attempting to enter and two for motorcycles and ATVs. Payment is accepted via credit card with payment by check allowed although with a check the entry is not official until the check is received and processed by SCORE.
