ENSENADA, Mexico — SCORE race officials announced Thursday that two of the four races on the 2021 SCORE World Desert Championship schedule have changed dates.
The two races with new dates are the SCORE Baja 400 in September and the season-ending SCORE Baja 1000 in November. The series schedule was originally announced on Aug. 4.
SCORE has pushed the SCORE Baja 400 back one week to Sept. 14-19 and the legendary SCORE Baja 1000 has been moved back two weeks to Nov. 15-20, the week prior to Thanksgiving in the United States.
Featuring all four races in Baja California, Mexico for the sixth time in series history, the events will all be taped to air domestically, as well as being syndicated internationally to as many as 25 countries.
The 2021 season-opener will be held in San Felipe. Two others will be held exclusively in Baja California and the season-finale will start in Baja California and finish in La Paz, Baja California Sur.
SCORE anticipates the announcement of the start and finish locations of two of the races and the start for the season finale to be announced within the next few weeks.
“After further review with our numerous stakeholders and government officials, we have determined that these two date changes are in the best interest of all concerned,” said Jose A. Grijalva, President and Race Director of SCORE International. “We have quickly adjusted the dates for the final two races of the year and look forward to producing another memorable season of SCORE Baja races.”
