In a first-ever endurance test of its kind, a Baja 5B has been driven non-stop across 120 miles of unforgiving unpaved roads across the sun-blasted desert of the American southwest!
A Tough Yearly Tradition
Full-size desert racers from across North America take part in the annual Barstow to Vegas race, pitting themselves and their cars against the elements and the rough desert terrain. Even though the usual equipment for this race means 30-inch knobby tyres, suspension travel of more than a yard and vehicles such as desert racing trucks and specialist racing buggies, we knew that this was the best endurance challenge the Baja could undertake. With enough fuel and a couple of spares, it would be fun to get the Baja across a desolate, uninhabited stretch of classic southwestern American desert.
