JANUARY 2019- DETAILED ROUTE WILL BE ANNOUNCED SPRING 2018
Teams can join the Baja 4000 in racing and touring categories. The route of both categories will be the same. There might be slight differences in routes of the two categories.
The rally will start in Los Angles in January 2019. The detailed route will be announced in the spring of 2018. It’ll be a round trip along the Baja peninsula. We will travel on different routes going south and coming north.
After a day in California, the rally will enter Baja California and travel to Cabo San Lucas and then back to Los Angeles.
Our goal is to keep the stages between 200 and 600 kms each day and take the rally through the most spectacular desert landscapes and beaches of Baja California. Raw untouched natural beauty, off-the beaten path adventures have been the trademarks of Bamako Adventures. This trip will be no different.
This was the route of the 2017 run of the Baja 4000.
