    BM, I don’t know if you have read about the first guy to do the Baja solo on a motorbike. The guy is completely nuts as they usually do it in teams. He said he was hallucinating and all sorts of stuff by the end.

  • Bavarian Missile®™

    Nah havent Steve,but find it easy to understand why he would.

    The D V Ds are really hard to find of the event and I guess unless you have Foxtel you wont get to see this race either :(

    Pity cause its excellent viewing .

    What was the Lexus/Cruiser racing against in its class I wonder ?

  • DesignEng©™

    “Lexus is celebrating its first of-road (CLASS) win …”

    The full stock class only had 3 entries and 2 DNF’s, therefore a win by default, but you do have to finish to be in the running.

    73 rd overall and 7 hours behind the winner. Good effort for the rookie driver.
