      BAJA RACING Workshop


      So you're planning to race the Baja 1000 and your family, friends & coworkers think you're insane? Well we don't!


      SCORE Baja and Desert racing is what we do with a 100% finishing rate supporting Ironmen and moto teams spanning over 20 years.


      Staging out of The Horsepower Ranch just outside of Ensenada, spend 4 information packed days and evenings in the cantina learning from 2021 Off Road Motorsports Hall of Fame inductee, Tim Morton, his experienced crew, and hand picked SCORE Pros all with the goal of helping you succeed.


      In addition to leading Baja racers to a 100% finishing rate, Tim earned 4 SCORE International Pro Class points championships, an Overall SCORE motorcycle championship, set the world record for the most miles raced in 24 hours, raced 26 Baja 1000's, competed as a factory Honda, Kawasaki, and BMW racer, won the Nevada Rally, 1st Overall at the NORRA Mexican 1000, Vegas to Reno class wins, Dakar mechanic, and so much more.


      Key members of Tim's chase crew will also be on hand sharing their decades of experience from the chase truck & logistics side of things.


      Also coaching will be SCORE International racing vet, Ron Wilson.

      Ron is one of the highest placing Baja 1000 Ironman in the history of SCORE International, earned several Baja 500 & Baja 1000 class wins, motocross wins, and class championships in multiple SCORE Pro classes.

      Since 1997 Baja Bound has enjoyed sharing the diverse off road terrain and incredible local color Baja California has to offer. We pride ourselves on traveling in small, well matched groups of riders, with a light footprint, and continually giving back to the warm people that welcome us.

      Traveling thru Baja from Ensenada to Cabo with Baja Bound is second to none. This is probably my 10 th trip with them. Tim knows Baja like his own back yard. The terrain was very scenic, riding across miles of pacific ocean beach front was awesome, and just challenging enough and not over anyone’s head. Tim kept the group safe and well informed the entire trip. Accommodations were excellent and the food as always was fantastic. Highly recommend doing this 7 day ride or any ride in Baja with Tim and Jenn from Baja Bound.

      Raddest trip I have ever done! We had a lot of miles that had to be covered in only 7 days and Tim took us on a route that was amazingly diverse in terrain and challenging every single day. As an experienced rider my favorite part of the trip was being able to relax and focus on my riding while being confident Tim was going to handle the routes, gas stops, food stops, and everything else involved in getting us to our destination each evening. Tim’s crew (Ron, Ed, and Jefé) that he selected for this trip made the experience so much more colorful with their Baja knowledge, stories, and willingness to help out in every situation. Each days destination had its own unique experience that really helped highlight the culture and lifestyle that Baja offers. Food was amazing, scenery mind blowing, trails totally epic, and memories I will enjoy forever. My only regret was that I put off doing this trip for so many years. Before I even made it back stateside I was already scheming ways to get on another trip with Tim and his crew! I highly recommend any adventure with Tim and Baja Bound!!!
