This will be the first effort for an Ultra4 car to compete in this style of race. “This will be my third time participating in this race and taking my car makes it even more special this year,” said JT Taylor. “The roots of Baja racing are part of this race but this effort will be the OG of desert racing.” The OG13 King of the Hammers racer is always trying to extend the boundaries for this style of vehicle first with Hill Climb racing including the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb and now with the NORRA Mexican 1000 in Baja, Mexico. JT Taylor #13 will be running in a brand new class called the Evolution 4x4 Class. In 2012 JT Taylor was the driver and co-driver in the #11 Elf Dirt Sports Car taking 2nd in class, and last year he co-drove for the 1982 Raceco Car with Marty Fiolka where they placed 1st in class. The 2012 General Tire NORRA Mexican 1000 is a four day, four stage race. “My favorite part of the race is getting to see all the vintage cars and the legends each night at the end of the day. I love to just sit there and listen to all their cool stories of past and present racing,” said JT Taylor. Sunday April 29th they will start in Mexicali and go to Bahia de Los Angeles. Day 2 they will continue to Loreto. Day 3, May 1st, racing continues down the coast to La Paz with the final Day 4 taking them to the tip of Baja at San Jose del Cabo to the finish celebration.
