Now you get to experience the thrill in the driver’s seat! In the heart of the untamed Baja peninsula you get to drive in the safety of our custom built race cars, always within radio-shot of our experienced guides and the professional support crew of Wide Open Excursions! The closed course track is just outside Cabo San Lucas. Wide Open Cabo’s Baja Challenge (BC) racecars are not “dune buggies” or “sand rails”; they are the same cars that race in the Baja 1000. With Wide Open Adventures you will experience the thrill of racing in the Baja 1000. You will slide around sandy berms, view scenic trails, capture the true beauty of the Baja peninsula while safely strapped into a suspended racing seat by a 5-point safety harness system. Wide Open Cabo’s racecars are powered by 4 cylinder 2 liter engines that provide almost 200 hp. They are outfitted with off-road racing suspension and shock absorbers that provide 18” of suspension travel. We run exclusively on BF Goodrich All Terrain TA and Mud Terrain TA Tires. Each car is equipped with a 2 way radio system, internal intercom system, global positioning system, and fresh air filter.For as little as $395.00 USD, plus tax, you can strap yourself in one of our purpose built off-road race cars. Our staff will explain the safety precautions and provide you with some tips on how to handle these thrilling desert machines before tackling our off-road course. Three options are available, and while none of them require previous off-road experience, these cars have manual transaxles so experience in driving a standard shift vehicle is helpful.

We did the taste of baja 9 lap experience. When we called most of their cars were out on full and multi day tours, so I think they parted one together for us, as they were unsure they could accommodate us last minute but were able to. Cat still ran good and was fun. Our guide was great as well.... More

Coming from such a beautiful country like New Zealand it's hard to be impressed by new experiences. But Wide open was truly a life changing experience. Driving such an amazing machine through the desert truly goes unrivalled. You will zone-out and fall in love with your car and surroundings. Darrin is the perfect guide for all of this, he has...

This experience had been on the bucket list for 8 years. As an adrenaline junkie I had high expectations. Myself and 6 other guys made the trip to cabo and joined Wide open for a full day excursion where we drove actual baja race cars through the mountains and countryside on 150 miles of the actual baja 1000 route. Stopping... More

My husband had wanted to experience this for a few years. It was not on my list of things I wanted to do, but none of his buddies wanted to do it (not sure why) so I went with him. OMG - it is so much fun. We did the one day tour and we were the ONLY car!!! WOOHOO!.... More

I love to do a lot of stuff. Surf, snowboard, skydive. And this was by far one of the best things I have ever done. The staff was amazing! Getting to drive one of these cars was truly an experience like no other. It makes those Razor things look like a three wheeled golf cart. Totally worth the $$

This tour company is top notch. I did the 1/3 tour during a recent trip to Cabo. One of the best times I've ever had in a car. Equipment is excellent. Staff is very kind and helpful. It's well worth the money. I highly recommend them and the experience. Simply amazing.

This was the highlight for my husband as he was kind of racing guy who enjoyed the thrill and adventure. Everything went perfectly - from pick up at our hotel to spending half day at their private ranch/track to hanging out with the friendly staff during break. It was very fun to see an actual Classic 10 Baja 1000 Race... More
