Learning how to drive a Baja rig is one thing, but driving the Baja 1000 – regarded as one of the most grueling off-road races in the world – is something else entirely. Wide Open Baja can help you experience just that with their arrive-and-drive Baja 1000 program. Not only will they give you use of their purpose-built, Subaru-powered Class 10 truck that's capable of running up to 95 mph on dirt, but they provide an experienced support crew to follow you around throughout the race. Be warned, this is an extremely dangerous race. That said, you only live once. Please note: Wide Open also provides Baja car training, as well as group desert tours.
