The El Naranjo sewage treatment plant lacks the capacity to process
sewage from 25% of the city of Ensenada, so the para-state agency has
opted to discharge the untreated sewage into the ocean.
A worker has filed a criminal complaint against the State Commission for
Public Services of Ensenada (CESPE) with the Federal Attorney General,
as he holds CESPE responsible for acts and omissions which has caused
In the complaint filed August 31, file number fed/bc/539/2016, the
person reporting said that in the night time he has been instructed to
"open the valve" to the sewage pipelines that discharge into the sea
from the El Naranjo sewage treatment plant onto Playa El Ciprés, one of
the most visited tourist areas.

*San Quintin Cops Out Of Gas!
The municipal police in San Quintín were without fuel for patrols in
more than 55 colonias in the district, which left residents without
police service. Municipal police vehicles as well as public service
vehicles were affected by the lack of fuel, which caused a delay in
patrols as well as garbage collection.
Mexico is a failed state. Most of its people live or want to live, elsewhere. They have no money for police car gas.
So, if your'e a racer and get in a tangle in San Quentin, just run. Haul ass. The po-lice have no gas, to catch your, you know what!
And Roger Norman the Billionaire is taking the money? Sure, it's just us...we suppose this will all come to light after the NEXT local race death...
Unofficial sources indicated that the most affected were the municipal
police, as for a part of Sunday and early Monday the few vehicles they
had were parked and unable to provide security.
*Time Change Occurs Over North America (Fall back) in two weeks, on November 6 at 2AM! Some of the best pre-running occurs during these two weeks.
Roger will race this years Baja 1000. Why? Because he has sold the sanction. Rogers own words, "We put together a family race team for this years 'SCORE event'. This will be a huge bucket lister for the whole family. My brother is the Driver of Record and our brother in laws will be driving as well. We are really looking forward to a great family photo at the finish line. I will be co-driving 40 miles of the race with my dad at the wheel."

XBAJA TV ANNOUNCES SPECIAL LIVE! COVERAGE SCHEDULED FOR THIS YEARS KING of BAJA 1000 2016!
UPDATED! October 16, 2016 Live RaceWeek coverage begins Monday, November 14, 4PM WEST.
The KING of BAJA 1000 LIVE! Event has designed and finalized this year’s race
Starting and finishing in the heart of Ensenada in front of the historic
Riviera del Pacifico Cultural Center, the course travels in a
counter-clockwise direction. It includes the approximate 20 mile stretch
to Ojos Negros which is used in both directions. Outgoing, the course
heads south from Ojos Negros through Santo Tomas and then runs along the
picturesque Pacific Ocean for over 100 miles and then back across to
the center of Baja California Norte.
The approximately 830-mile course covers both sides of the peninsula and
includes four checkpoints.
The race will have its normal start from Ensenada to Piedras Gordas,
then out to highway 3 around Rm 20.7 and will go to Km33 and get back on
the dirt. The course will go past Rancho Grijalva to El Mezcal and head
to Uruapan using La Lagrima Rd, a different road than in past years.
From Santo Tomas, the course heads to the coast of the Pacific Ocean and
runs down to San Quintin, Nuevo Odisea and then to El Rosario. The
course will travel up the well known hill La Vivora, el Arenoso, and
will loop around from San Juan de Dios at approximate Rm305 to El Metate
Rm 340, Los Martires Rm 363 and go back to San Quintin on the east side
of the highway and run north to Col. Vicente Guerrero, Jaramillo and
The course will travel a new route from Colonet to Llano Colorado and
across to Valley de Trinidad. The race course goes along the highway
from San Matias to Villa del Sol then crossing the highway at El
Chinero, north to Coabuso Junction and then climb up the summit in the
opposite direction as previous races from the desert to Nuevo Junction
and on to Catarina. From Catarina, it will be back to Ojos Negros and
from Ojos Negros back to the finish line.
The four checkpoints will be located at Santo Tomas (CP 1–race-mile 87),
El Rosario (CP 2–rm249), Vicente Guerrero (CP 3–rm457) and Nuevo
Junction (CP 4–rm730).
Pre-running will 'officially' open on Saturday, October 22, allowing competitors
nearly four weeks of practice time on the official race course.

Most know it as a desert off-road race. The pure racers. They also know about the carnage!
The colossal event mismanagement by SCORE has caused the racing to change. The racers now know to plan for contingencies on their own. That's the greatest threat to Baja racing and the international visitors/racers in the Republic of Mexico.
Last years race concluded with the entire group of Trophy Truck drivers (the country clubbers) talking among themselves, seeking answers, then a boycott. The boycott of the series of races put on by Norman, culminated at the last event, the Rosarito race.
None of the real Trophy Truck owners showed.
The racers are tired of the mismanagement of the sanction, SCORE International.
The KING of BAJA 1000 2016 Pre-Runs! Gary Newsome, Annual Compiler
Notes from the Pre-Running Public! Keep sending to BajaRacingNews@LIVE.com
*The course slows down after RM 300. Lots of silt changes to rocky sections. Many parts haven't been run by SCORE. The rocky sections are similar to the summit.
*The 'course marking guys' must have been following the old track instead of the new road. The 'old' track is full of big holes and the land owning rancher has fenced it off. The south side (NJ side) is the same as always and the NE side is easy now. There is even an either or that avoids a specific steep place. I watched a sand rail drive up that steep place, but most of the guys I was with took the option. I hear two marking rigs (UTV's) had broken parts, a RZR that had a broken tie rod. From the NE, a plain old daily driver Tacoma, with no big tires, drove it easy!
*RM 590 to Ojos Negros Notes. Why plan on running the summit now changing it? We get the feeling that Roger is not in charge and the Ensenada 'new owners' are in charge of setting the course. GPS file at RM 772 shows the course in black, but markings went to the right in red. Many wasted this past weekend figuring out where the course will EVENTUALLY go.
Pre-Running Notes form the Baja 1000 2016 KING of BAJA
*The summit section should be left alone, too bad if the lower classes can't make it. Race Mile 110 to RM 505, there are several sections between RM 270 through 410 that are equally as rough as the summit, in reverse! All these course changes make pre-running twice as diffucult.
*Course slows down quite a bit after RM 300 to lots of silt then onto technical rocky sections. Some new trails that haven't been run before. Around 300 starts some good silt beds and once those are done some gnarly rocky sections that were similar to the summit. Finished at RM 410 today. Getting a late start after some repairs from the backside of summit last night.
Going to be some course changes (no more reverse summit challenges) so that means lots more marking to redo a couple hundred miles. The idiots at Score International are working to fix their problems now!
*Yesterday was the gnarliest hill climb I've ever done and especially at night. Going up the summit backwards at night was a challenge with 2' shear faces. Driving it like a 2wd keeping momentum going 15-20 mph up the summit Backwards!
Silt beds were also pretty intense from previous races with good ravines on both sides. We broke a tie rod in the worst spot possible right at top of the summit. Luckily we got an assist and took our tie rod down the summit and came back with it welded up ready to get down the front side of summit.
A couple other TT racers were unable to make it up the summit backwards in there high-powered 2wd prerunners.
