THE PUNTA BANDA PURE "125" & THE GRAN CARRERA "GP" - MAY 16, 2015...AWESOME!
This is going to be one of the most incredible and spectacular race courses ever. The course is on private property belonging to Ejido General Esteban Cantu. It's over 700,000 acres and it is pristine, never before used for any type of events or races, and we have it on a multi-year contract for two events a year.
We must protect it, conserve it, keep it clean but we will have the opportunity to use it for our events. Your help is requested as this Ejido could be the future location in Ensenada for many of our events.
We are grateful and delighted that the authorities from Ejido Cantu welcomes all racers and our organization with open arms.
On a side note: Any thing that you may wish to donate to the Ejido, especially to their children and their schools, it is more than welcome. Let us know what you might be bringing so that we can alert them.

COURSE CHANGE as of May 6, 2015...
Due to several unforeseen circumstances and Mother Nature, we have cut the course in half, eliminating a sections called "El Cantil" which takes us down to the beach. This was done because of boulders and debris from a recent rain storm on the narrow trail.
We met with Ejido officials on Tuesday, May 5, and decided for safety issues and time to make repairs, we will eliminate that portion of the course until they have time to get it back in order. This is the same road that some of the fishermen use to get down to the beach so it's imperative that it be made safe.

Regardless, the course will still have the spectacular views that we have been telling everyone about, the technical and fast sections, on a course never before used for any event.
The course map will come out later today or tomorrow. The time limits will; remain the same:
The Gran Carrera “GP” will still be a two-hour event, starting at 10 a.m. and the checkered flag coming out at exactly 12:00 p.m. Noon.
We still have plans to start the PURE UTV “125” event at 1 p.m., unless we are delayed by a problem on the course, and instead of making a prescribed number of laps, the race will be a four-hour race, ending exactly four hours after the start (expected to be at 1 p.m.).
More importantly, Ejido Coronel Esteban Cantu is on-board with us to put on a good show for the thousands of spectators that will be viewing the race in a “controlled” area, near the start and finish. They too will have a great views of the race, while settled in a great, park-like setting.
