Overview

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 had a great time with an excellent guide (Angel). The cars were awesome, and more than powerful enough for Motocross racers like ourselves. The hospitality was top notch, the track was amazing and the whole experience was worth every second. Definite recommendation for others...More

Just completed 4 day Baja tour. Unbelievable. No words can describe sensation of doing 70 mph on back roads, drifting up and around and over turns, gullies, washes, rocks, through incredibly scenic Baja desert. If you have the need for speed, this is for you!

There's a chance you could book the day before but not the day of. You have a driver take you to the track and venue, so they need a little time in advance to coordinate schedules
