Owner description: 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.

I just recently did a one-day experience with my wife on their closed track. Angel, our guide, was incredible! Driving these wide open cars is amazing and way better than any other ATV experience.

I will say that about 10 years ago, I did the 5 day excursion that travels up the peninsula and this is a much better experience than the closed track just because of the variety of terrain and scenery. It is more of an adventure to get out into the experience of the Baja 1000 for a few days.

If you are an adventurer or if you like a good adrenaline rush, you should definitely check this out!

If you want to have the best experience in Cabo and like adrenaline, do yourself a favor and check out Wide Open! Angel is the man and runs a tight operation and it is a blast. The cars are the real deal and the course is challenging, but definetly doable after a few times around the 5 mile course. Take the 1st lap slow and then once you feel comfortable you can start jacking up the speed on the straightaways and can catch some air in certain spots if you want to. This is the closet thing too racing in the Baja 1000 you can get! Thanks again to Angel for taking care of us!

Several friends, my son and I just returned from Cabo, and Wide Open. Angel was such a huge help with getting my group scheduled - with only a short notice. He was very professional, knowledgeable and understood that safety was job one.

These are real race cars that truly have raced in the Baja 1000. You'll understand once you see them and get buckled into them. This is a once in a lifetime experience, that I'm going to make sure I experience again. Incredible!

I just treated my two boys to a half day off road racing experience with Wide Open Cabo and can't say enough how much fun we had. All three of us are experienced Motocross Racers and a blast honing in our skills on their 5-mile off road course.

This is the real deal and you can go as fast as your skills will take you.

Our host Angel was the best, First class transportation from Cabo to the track and he took care of all of our needs throughout the day.

These guys are great and I highly recommend to anyone to give them a try if you want to sample off road car racing without spending $300K

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 to try out Wide Open Baja's class 10 cars. Looking forward to going again!
