Feature Race


The Red Desert Baja race is back! A few years ago I created the Red Desert Baja course.  It is a tough track with jumps, bumps, and multiple surfaces.  This is a one of a kind race on a one of a kind track that you definitely don't want to miss!

Cars run a time trial on the course, the top 16 cars will race head to head in a single elimination bracket.

Here is some video to give you an idea of the track.




Rules & Restrictions
Max weight 65 grams.
Max length 4 inches.
Max height 2.5 inches.
Width - should fit on Hot Wheels orange track. (I utilize orange track for the start gate.)
Any wheels and axles are allowed.
Stock or modified cars are allowed.
Dry lubes only

One car per entrant.  If you have multiple people sending cars in the same house that’s fine.  I want everyone that wants to enter to be able to, but this race is a lot of video work since everyone gets their own time trial video so just one car per person please.

There will be a $1 entrance fee per car. 

Races will be videoed and posted online.

Cars due June 16th, 2018.  Racing will start the following week. Video and results will begin to be posted the following Saturday, June 23rd.

Where to send your cars:

Scoring and Winning
First there will be a time trial.  Each car will have 5 runs.  The fastest 16 cars will qualify for a head to head bracket.  The winner of the bracket will be the Red Desert Baja Champ.  If 16 cars are unable to finish the course during the time trials, the furthest distance each car was able to travel will be used to round out the 16 car bracket.

January 2018 - Race Results

I have to apologize for the quality of these videos.  Watching them at full screen will produce a more blurry image than normal.  I had a technology issue this month and had to use a different editing software.  Looks like I need to adjust the export settings to for a higher quality.  Hopefully by next month I'll have it worked out.  :)
