My buddy and I left our wives at the pool and I opted for the 1/3rd Day Trip, Taste of Baja. We headed out of town in their own van into a remote part of the desert, which was only about a 25 minute scenic drive. From the moment you pull off the paved road towards their setup the cars were ready and waiting for us. This isn't their first rodeo...they have their act together! After a short prep on the cars, safety, the tracks, etc. we were quickly into the cars and off.
Roy, one of the owners of Wide Open, was our team leader for the day. Roy was fantastic! A great guy with a real passion for the experience and full of fascinating stories about past trips and current clients.
We had a group of 4 cars and took off on the 1st of 2 tracks. They aren't kidding when they tell you these cars are for real! The 1st time around the track the driver is getting slightly used to the car and the co-driver is getting used to the communications between other cars. After that 1st lap, it was all on! Drifting around turns, hitting jumps, setting the suspension, navigating hairpin blind turns and just basically testing the cars abilities. These cars can take about anything you can dish out.
They give you lunch, snacks, drinks in between runs while the pit crew prepares the cars for the next run.
They also do several other trips (1 full day, 3 day, 4 day, etc. ) that we did ask a lot about and we're very interested in doing when we're able to find some time to go back.
When we finished for the day they had plenty of snacks, cold water bottles and colder cervezas!
Great adrenaline fun with a great company and a really great group of people. I couldn't possibly recommend it more. Thanks Roy!!!
