Interview with Alan Kohl of MotorMexico.com
Alan, how long does it take competitors to complete the Baja Mexico 1000 race?
"The competitors of the Baja 1000 off-road race are given an allotted amount of time to complete the race. The time allowed to complete a race depends on the length of the course.
Here are examples:
Nov 2009 (this year): Course length 672.85 miles. Time limit to finish: 31 hours.
Nov 2007: Course length 1,296 miles. Time limit to finish: 53 hours (finished in Cabo San Lucas)
Nov 2005: Course length 709 miles. Time limit to finish: 30 hours
Nov 2004: Course length 1016.13 miles. Time limit to finish: 40 hours (finished in La Paz)
Nov 2000: To celebrate the millennium, the race was 2,000 miles long. I don't recall how many hours they had to finish, but it was something like 80 hours. They finished in Cabo San Lucas."
Below is the 2009 course map.
