45TH TOUR DE CORSE 2001 Jesus and Citroen Win -Finally! By Martin Holmes Photos: Maurice Selden Jesus Puras and Marc Marti comer hard on their way to the overall win in their neat looking Citroen Xsara WRC. Finally, after five heart-break rallies, which he had led, only to fall back or re-ti re, Spanish driver Jesus Puras won his first WRC event, the 2001 Tour de Corse. "I have been fighting hard for this moment for years, I hope this victory starts a 'new stage' in my life." He led the rally from the sec-ond stage to the finish, bring-ing Citroen to their first win with the World Rally Car. Michelin scored a grand slam of asphalt rally wins this year, · and Citroen headed their stablemates, Peugeot; who scored their third maximum ch::impionship pain.l's. score of the season. . The 12th round out of 14 counted not only for the overall and Group N cham-pionships, but was also _the penultimate round of the Super 1600. series. For the final time this year all seven registered manufacturers were present. Entries were limited to 90 cars, of which 52, an unusually· high proportion were two wheel drive. This was the final rally of the sea-son run on all asphalt roads, the two following events would be on gravel. In terms of overall distance this was the shortest rally in the his-tory of the world champion-. ship. All the servicing was at the same locat(on, Ajaccio airport. The rally was held later in the year than in re-cent years and that meant the weather would be more un-stable. Experiences in Sanremo showed Pirelli tire users should well pray for rainy conditions. Mitsubishi ad-mitted that their problems at Sanremo were from electrical component failures which were undetected before the event. Peugeot felt confident, Gilles Panizzi won both San-remo and Corsica last year and Peugeot's cars last year were both first and second on both events! Would wet con-ditions in Corsica hamper the Peugeots with their Mich-elin tires? Panizzi said, "We found in Sanremo the car was just as competitive on slip-pery, ·greasy surfa-ces as on clear asphalt. It's a superbly balanced car." Both Peug~ot and Subaru announced new driver signings in the week before the event. Subaru entered four· cars as in Sanremo, but had no explanation as to why• Richard Burns left the road on the first stage of that event. Schwarz's short rally in Sanremo frustrated useful analysis of Skoda's new dif-ferential system, but Thiry was delighted at the car's per-formance in fast-changing weather conditions towards the end. Hyundai ran the same two cars as in Sanremo, although Liatti's had been re-turned to Britain for crash re-pairs. The main concern was overcoming brake problems which afflicted the cars in Finland and Italy. Citroen (not eligible for poirits this year), made their final planned appearance for the World Rally Cars this season, but this time only with two cars as both Loeb returned to driving Super 1600 cars for the remaining two events of the year, where he was only six points ahead of Dallavilla. The other main attraction was the Super 1600 cars. The various Ford Puma teams hoped the island's traditional demands would not preju-dice their chances, even if all seven Pumas reached the end of Sanremo. In Group N, the. Cordoba Rally Team had can-celed the en tries for both Pozzo and his t~ammate, Ligato. Gustavo Trelles be-came the 11th driver to en-ter his 100th World Cham-pionship Rally, and the first such driver never to have driven for an official works team!

38TH ANNUAL TECATE SCORE BAJA 1000 Campbell/Staab Take The overall Photos: Trackside Photo . Johnny Campbell and Tim Staab really poured it on, taking the overall win by almost an hour, capping a not too great season in SCORE. The year 2001 had not been The Great New Millen-nium that Johnny Campbell and Tim Staab would have wished for, being the holders of the 200 "lX" champion-ship plate and all. After be-ing beaten at San Felioe and, again, in the :Baja 500" the word around the pits was "Wot dah ????!" But this year's B 1 K saw the desired reversal of fortune as the two South-ern California racers took their Honda XR650R to a resounding overall victory in the Big One. Their sub-14 hour "sprint" was good for a one hour margin over their Honda teammates and arch-rivals, Steve Hengeveld and Jonah Street (who hoped to pass the Valley T Sta-tion while it was still light). Campbell and Staab also beat the first car of Doug Fortin by 45 minutes. It was quite a display: the "lX" bik had a 31 minute lead by Borrego's race mile 220. Demonstrat-ing that pre-running is· like dinero en el banque; the wise racers sliced off the hypot-enuse of a course triangle, scattering surprised Checkers like quail. Campbell is the first off road rider to win five con-secutive Baja 1000 titles -like, uh, in a row, too. -Honda is the first manufacturer to win 12 Baja 1000s. Be advised that Street and Hengeveld captured the Class 22 cham-pionship. The third finisher was the Honda 650 of Baja tour guide Chris Haines who brought in ·the famous-but-seldom-seen Jack Johnson to parfner with ex-D37 desert ace Craig Adams and Bob Johnson. Haines now has eight class wins and Johnson seven. Note: That pesky Jack Johnson also rode to the "1000" win in 1982 with the revered Al "XRs Only" Daker. Ricardo Malo did not do bad, either, winning Class 30 while perennial strongman Richard Jackson won Class 50. The Quads were headed by the as-usual strong team of Carmen Cafro, Earl Thigpen, Scott Callen and Allen Fox. There were a total of 58 starters (33 Pros and 25 Sportsmen) with 29 finishers for an even fifty percent fin-ishing ratio. Campbell and Staab over-came two racing accidents, covering the 667 miles over. the rocky, rugged, silty, tight, twisty and technically-chal-le ngi ng Baja California course on their Honda XR650R in a time of 13 hours, 51 minutes and 40 seconds. Averaging 48.84 miles per hour to win the Class 22 title was remarkable considering the two accidents Campbell had within the first 150 miles. Their dominating performance resulted in a vic-tory margin of over 54 min-utes. The Ensenada Hermanos Ruvalcaba took on Steve Cruz for a cruise to the fifth motorcycle position and the mid-sized bike win. Not bad. Honda team manager Bruce Ogilvie allowed his rid-ens to select their sections based on ability and desire, but retained an "oversight" position. "Tim Staab felt that he was in great shape -he hits the gym three times a week (and you forget that he's only 23) -so he hit the big bullet, wanting to do the San Felipe stuff back to back through the Mike's loop. I agreed." Tim and Johnny's bike was using a set of "works" Kayaba forks that had originally been introduced in '99 but were then shelved in favor of stock legs that had been Bob Bell-ed at Precision Concepts. "But this summer Tim, Johnny and Bob worked on the "works" forks and made them a little better than the ones we have been using. Bruce said." The engine is the standard displacement HRC kit - a different cam and higher CR -that we've been using since six months after the bike was released." At the highway before Mike's they put on new wheels on both ends and front brake pads. The team stuck with the 7 39AT Dunlops even though "per-haps an MX tire might have been better in the new bladed section" but the team cer-tainly did not. want to take any chances of flats so they stuck with what works. "Tim and I felt that we had the upper hand since I knew that Jonah had not been feel-ing well and Steve was think-ing of preserving that '# 1' plate. And I had four '1000s' . " 1n a row, too. "Nobody builds tougher bikes than Honda, and I'm living proof of that," said Campbell,.who hit a quad ridden by a spectator who blundered onto the course at RM 100 out of the Km 77 crossing and then 50 miles later smashed the front wheel on his Honda when he hit a cow that strayed onto the race course to see what the racket was all about. "I.was going about 45 miles an hour in the wash (after the Summit) when all of a sudden I see this cow's head come ut fr<;>m be-hind a bush,and there was no time to react. The impact. flipped me off the back and fortunately I landed on soft silt or I would have been hurt really bad." Johnny was set-ting up for a turn through a fence so, luckily, happily, was not at full cable-stretching speed. "It happened so quick that I had no time to be scared. The ATV, now that made me mad. It ·was un-called for. It sent me flying. l hit the fork leg on the right tire, so I had to straighten the leg in the clamps." Somewhat shaken he m; it to Honda 4 -where they figured that he had a 3:30 lead over 5X -Jonah and Steve -including the two minute start delta: It was go-ing to be close. The cow deal bent the front brake rotor so the right lever was problem-atical, at best. "At least it wasn't an area where you need a lot of front brake," Bruce noted. Things then went away. "I was in the chopper following both bikes when Jonah's dust just disappeared. I thought at first, that he had taken some new line that he had found pre-running b'ut then ... nothing." It took Street almost a half an hour to get the bike running again. "I heard that Jonah Street was sick most of the week and that affected him during the race. After he crashed (in the same area where JC hit the cow), he kicked and kicked and kicked and wore himself out trying to start the bike so he had to sit down and. rest a while!" -Mike i<.ariya. (Subsequent investigations of the bike resulted in no findings, nothing that would make a restart so tedious.) "I was happy to turn over the bike to Tim and get some rest before getting back on at Valle de Trinidad," Campbell· admitted. Now blessed with a 30 minute cushion, Tim and JC could "relax" -if you could ever "relax" with Hengeveld behind you. Steve did nibble away at the lead but hoping to. cut off five minutes in ev-ery section was unrealistic, since,the bikes were virtually the same and the riders equally fast. Hengeveld kept the pace but settled for sec-ond -and the SCORE Class 22 championship. As Bruce noted, the Honda team that gets the breaks gets the win. Campbell said that being first on the road could be tough duty. Sure, there is no dust but you catch the spec-tators -and the cows -un-awares. "I was lucky. There was only one pocket of fog on the pavement to the Wash so I slowed only for a mile. Up from Uruapan to Ojos you usually have to stop and open gates. Not this time. It was easy, no ground fog, in fact, it only got dark when· I reached Erindera." Knowing. that 5X had fallen way back Johnny clicked back the pace a bit. Ricardo Malo (304X) com-bined forces with Fred Willert (then who withdrew his 303X entry) and they were quite successful with an 11th overall and the class win. Ed-die Zeller's 302X was down at RM 120 for quite some time with a broken side case, however was able to get go-ing, stopping at the "Oasis" Mag 7 pit at 1603. Zeller did get a finish, a late finish. Rodolfo Iribe -"The Mexi-can 'want-to-be' Ironman" -had a busy day. (And, yes, one of THOSE "Famous lribes", however half-removed!) "Have you ever had a bad nightmare? You know, the one you wake up sweating, your heart is hammering? The Steve Henge!1eld and Jonah Street finished second but they won the Ricardo Malo teamed with Fred Willert, took the class 30 win and The Class 21 win went to David Ruvalcaba and Steve Cruz, fifth Class 22 SCORE championship. finished a nice /Ith overall as well. overall, a really great finish for the guys.

The runaway Formula 2 winner annihi-lated his classmates, and then some. Errea proved second best in Formula 2, although his being lapped equated to a DNF. Likewise for Shaw and Lee, who turned in that division's third and fourth best performances. Williams was the only one spared the DNF indignity, _since he toped Lyon for the Baja 1 win.

The one time quartet was reduced to a pair by the time_ the checkered flag flew. That fact didn't bother Dennis Mc-Kenzie, ·who raced to his sec-ond victory of the day. Peter Claas claimed Safari class run-ner-up honors, while the re-mainder of the field was bit-ten by the dreaded DNF bug. Race 5 featured nine start-ers from two mini-truck divi-sions. Two thirds of that group hailed from the Champ Truck class and the remaining trio from the Desert Trucks class. What little suspense the contest held quickly-disappeared when Rick Huseman rocketed into the early lead. While the "scary-fast" front-runner was polishing off his flag-to-flag Champ Trucks class victory, the balance of the field was left to race for (second) place. Paul Morris repelled stiff challenges by Brian Cavitt and Spencer Low Jr., before pulling clear to claim Champ Trucks runner-up honors. The aforementioned duo landed their division's respec-tive third and fourth spots. Matt Carter emerged victori-ous in the Desert Trucks class. Carter's win came at the direct expense of team-mate Jack Mitman, who took second, and third place fin-isher Steve Davis. Saturday's finale was for the full size trucks. An abbreviated cast of four faced the starter. That quartet was comprised of r>e-rennial class champions Curt LeDuc and Totnmy Bradley, and a pair of real up-and-com-ers, Jimmy O'Neal and Lance Rhinehart. After the way Bra-dley had dominated action one month earlier at Estero Beach, LeDuc seemed deter-mined .to kick his gass ... pedal. The two were at each other's throats right from the outset.

LeDuc, who raced solo in Super Trucks 4, gradu-ally drew away to prove a most convincing winner. Bra-dley had to settle for second best this time around, but only in overall scoring. That's because Bradley's strong performance still car-ried him to a first place fin-ish in the Super Trucks 2 di-vision. Rhinehart, who placed second in Super Trucks 2, completed the or-der of Race 6 finishers. The Saturday entertain-ment was far from over, as the L Sara Park cro~d was also treated to a Monster Truck and Tuff Truck show. It was a great exhibition, which fea-tured a half dozen Monster Trucks and a dozen or so area Tuff Trucks. Among those performers strutting their stuff for the appreciative fans was Tommy Bradley, who par-. ticipated in the "air show" in his high-flying Pro 2 truck. The spectacle of watching Monster Trucks soar over a line-up of large General Mo-tors vehicles really to bring the crowd alive. The most rousing ovation how-ever, was bestowed upon the evening's final participa'nt. Damon Block, of Lake For-est, CA leapt onto the Tuff Truck course in a custom built pre-runner out of Sean McKenzie's Ontrack Perfor-mance. Block was a picture of style and a grace as he deftly negotiated the entire Tuff Truck course. The crowd, sensing the show was over, began to disperse, wh~n sud-denly Block dedded to jump the "GM's". Block flew straight and strong, and even though he came up a bit short of clearing them all, the fans went absolutely ber-serk. It was an amazing sight that turned Block into an in-stant celebrity. All Saturday night, and again on Sunday, fans were clamoring for his autograph. And speaking of Sunday, there were another half dozen, 15-minute races on tap. The final event for Formula 2 and Baja 1 competitors was the first order of business. Steve Errea, twice, proved quickest off the line. Errea grabbed one holeshot and was look-ing strong, but the race wound up being red-flagged before completion of Lap 1. Undaunted, Errea provided more of the same on the re-start, this time showing the way through the first five laps. Larry Foddrill, who had been Dusty Times picking off a racer per lap, en-pass and set sail for the check-gaged Errea at the race's half-ered flag. Unfortunately, he way point. The two leaders never quite got there.

Over 40 tons was collected Some of the crew makes ready to unload another truck full of of volunteers and a long day's work. · by the CORDR volunteers, a most worthy calling. _ap~p~l_ia_n_c_e_s_. _______ _ ___________ _ Operation Clean Desert 11 Photos: Trackside Photo The sign-up table was busy as more than 150 volunteers assembled to help clean up some of the desert in the Barstow area. Late last year, some dedicated members of the off road racing community decided it was time to do something about the ever-in- , creasing amount of refuse accumu-lating in and around the Barstow area. Well over 100 people showed up that day, all of them bound by one single characteristic. They cared. The spirit of that group led to a second clean-up earlier this year, and ultimately to the forma-tion of CORDR, the Coalition of Off Road Desert Racers. CORDR members are a rare breed in this day and age. They are not individu-als who want help, they are indi-viduals who want to help. They are pure of heart, void of agendas and totally empowered by their shared desire to make a difference. And they are making a difference, a big difference. On October 20, mem-bers of CORDR' s Operation Clean Desert II brigade set out to round up and dispose of as much litter as humanly possible. Like a well trained army on a search and res-cue mission, the group spent hours collecting, removing and ridding the desert of debris. Could such a rela-t'ively small army have any real im-pact on an area as vast and expan-sive as the Mojave Desert? YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT! From dia-pers to dressers, to mattresses, re-frigerators and cars. The 169 desert-lovers, whose actions spoke louder than words, rid the desert of a staggering 41.5 tons of-trash. And every bit as impressive was the fact that they had a wonderful time doing it. CORDR's innovative of-ficers awarded prizes for the most unique item retrieved, and for the biggest load. They also raffled off several prizes, and picked up the tab for everyone's me·als at the Slash X 1---. ------: FREE!

His 5: 12:07 gave him a commendable eighth overall on his XR.650R the Purvines[russing/Pankas trio were first across the line in the Over 35 Expert division, 13" overall on their KTM. The Kawasaki of Gremel, Connelly and Thiel took the Open Expert division by the narrow margin of 35 seconds. "I knew I could do a top 10 so I went out there and did what I wanted to do," he said. "I think I passed pretty much most of the Expert teams -at least half of them -by the end of the first lap. The cold weather took its toll on the first lap. After that I felt pretty good and just kept my pace."

KARTEK's new Design teams a large durable high polymer boot with a chro-moly flange to provide maximum perfor-mance with minimum weight and size.

ATTENTION SCORE LITES Have you noticed how the costs of Class 12 cars have been ap-proaching Class 10 lately? If this class were less expensive, more rac-ers could enjoy Class 12, and a lot of cars out there would qualify. It would use the same 1776 and 1835 engine size, but with a 34 pict 3 carb, pump gas and bus box. At about 80+ H.P. this motor combi-nation would be compatible with the bus transmission and consider-ably lower in initial cost and up-keep/reolacement costs than what the rules allow for now. On gas alone you would save about $200. In a 500 mile race. This would po-~ition Class 12 more precisely be-tween Class 1/2-1600 and Class 10, and may likely be less costly to race for a season than a 1/2-1600. If you want to see this change made for 2002, call (949) 497-5561 or Leave your name and phone nurri.ber or e-mail address. Let me know if you have a car you intend to race of not and I will pass this survey on to Score Tech. We need your input before the first of the New Year. Forest Creasy lands hard on his way to the Class 9 win, a good finish for years end. While SCORE, BITD, Whip-lash, SNORE, and etc., all need rele-vision to grow, none has written a TV-package into a sponsorship. Don Shoemaker Productions is an independent film producer that buys TV rights from SCORE and Best In The Desert. With no name-in-title sponsor underwriting, the burden of producing the program-ming has fallen on the backs of the racers themselves. Your suggestion that the TV costs could be as much as $250,000 is not quite accurate -see the latest television coverage, update handed out at the SCORE Awards Banquet in early Decem-ber, which details the costs. Still, these costs are considerable with-out promoter and 1ndustry sup-port. HANNEMANN FIBERGLASS, INC. Pony Express ... January 2, 2002 Letter to the Editor Dear Editor, This letter is in response to a "Trail Notes" inclusion in Volume 19, Number 1-January 2002 issue -titled "Off-Road Racing and Tele-vision." The Shoemaker handout at the Baja 1000 was relative to "desert racing" only. Marty Reid of CO RR, who once covered desert racing for ESPN, offers a much dif-ferent product. Unlike desert rac-ing promoting groups, CORR has I the huge advantage of a paying on-site audience. Their lucrative Exxon sponsorship then allows for the purchase of television air-time and program production costs. And they have a further advantage in that short-course event coverage production costs are considerably lower than that of producing a desert race film. The costs of racing short-course are also considerably lower. Desert racing television, on the other hand, has been financed almost completely by the racers themselves -no money from the likes In closing, thank you for ad-dressing this television issue. Sponsors, promoters, contin-gency donors, fans, aftermarket manufacturers, racers and the press all have a vested interest in desert racing and its future. And television exposure is a must for any hope of contin-ued growth.

-' TREELINE RALLY REPORT Widget Rally Team Take First overall By John P.M. Dillon Photos: Motorsports Memories Laughlin O'Sullivan and John Dillon speed towards the finish in their Mitsubishi Eclipse GTX, 1st overall, 1" GT and 1st CRS Open Class. Seamus Burke, fresh from his attack for the SCCA Na-tional championship, flew out from Georgia to compete in the November 17th Treeline Rally headquartered at the Holiday Inn in West Page 42 Covina, California. His· mis-sion was to test drive a new Subaru prepared by Arizona's AV Sport for U.K. rally star David Higgins.

The narrowness of the roads, the rqughness of the surface, and the incredible number of switchbacks insured that driver and co-driver both re-ceived serious workouts. The first stage, the Round Table Express, warmed com-petitors to the rhythm of the roads. Named for the pizza sponsor of the after-rally party, the 4.3 mile long Round Table Express lim-bered up the arms of the driv-ers, the stomachs of the co-drivers, and the suspensions of the cars for Stage 2, a chal-lenging 17 mile knotted string of roads. The second stage, called the Subway Special and pre-sented by the famous sand-wich chain that fed all the volunteer marshals, proved grueling to man and machine.

The fact. that they owned the fastest cars at the race sure didn't hurt, either. They earned a win in a race that saw most, if not all of the entries have mechanical woes. Kevin McMullen (Mc-Mullen Off Road Trans, Fod Fab) piloted the "off road Suburban" to vic-tory over the ailing Eric · Pavolka and Rex Whit-moyer teams winning Class 1. This four seat unlimited car has lots of wheelbase, and healthy V8 power. It was _speedy in the straights, and was consistently the fastest car through the whooped out center section that is brutal on the car and driver alike. Kevin fin-ished second on Satur-day behind a zippy Eric Pavelka in the ADS Ma-chine Scat powered Chenowth, but was out of the gate first on Sun-day, and never looked back. Rex Whitmoyer and team brought the screaming Mazda beam car out for the race, but had some sort of prob-lem late in the Sunday's race, and earned the sec-ond place finish. The second McMullen four seater piloted by brother Jim, finished third for the weekend in its maiden voyage. After a heat race win on Satur-day, the Pavelka entry didn't finish on Sunday with unknown problems. The Al.bert McMullen entry made only one lap on Saturday after clearly winning the hole shot at the start. The revamped two seat rocket ship could not continue due to shifting problems with a Fields automatic trans-mission_. The Class 8 trucks put on a great show while it lasted. In another race of attrition, the Thunder truck of Don Kolt earned a victory by com-pleting the most laps on Sunday. The best racing action of the weekend was between Kolt and Bucky Strunk in the Predator truck on Satur-day. Kolt and Strunk ran-door handle to door handle for several laps, with both drivers on the ragged edge of disaster running down through the rough whoops sec-tion. The Predator truck was clearly working very well, but it cost both drivers dearly on Satur-day, as both trucks had rear end problems side-lining them for much of the race. This opened the door for Dave Raimonde who earned a second place finish and a heat win on Saturq.ay in the CWl Chevrolet by running an even pace. "Jammin" Jeff Geiser took the helm of the Raimonde 8 truck on Sunday, and was putting a whoopin' on the field Continued on page 43 Page 45

NewsPro,n The Directtlr · The Ramada Express Inter-national Rally once again proved to be the "adventure" its organizers always promise us. This year the weather and road conditions were the big factors for the rally teams competing on the weekend of December 13-15 in Laughlin, NV. Any-one who hasn't figured out that this rally requires snow tires was in sorry shape this year. The first two days were run on snow covered roads on the Havapal Indian' reservation outside of Peach Springs, AZ. The four wheel drive cars were at a definite advantage on Day 1 with the first two wheel team, Tony Chavez and Doug Robinson in a Stock class VW Golf, finishing 12th on Friday. Dennis Chizma and P~ul Timmerman were right behind them in their Group 2/5 Toyota Celica. The organizers had to shorten the rally when it became clear the two wheel drive cars were really struggling to get around the stages. Rather than let the rally get strung out into the night they dropped the last two stages. A . wise decision because the control workers would have been out way into the night manning stages in sub-zero temperatures. Good call. Ole Holter got the best ride of the day with David Higgins in the Subaru WRX took first place. Paula Gibeault navigated for Mike Whitman and guided him to second on the first day. Roger Hull was ·right behind them in his Eagle Talon. Josh Jacquot wasn't as lucky as Rhys Millen drove his Mitsubishi off the course and took out the right front of his vehicle. That ended their rally. Keith Roper and Chrissy Beavis took fourth on Day 1 in the GalantVR4. This team isn't flashy but they just keep coming, which is what gets you to the end of a three day rally. Alex Gelsomino was also lucky to pick up a ride with an FIA driver, Alfredo DeDominicis, in an Evo VI. Lauchlin O'Sullivan, and John Dillon managed to keep it on the road and finished sixth on Friday. Leon Styles and Larry Scott, who have been having new car woes all season fi.nally had a clean run and finished seventh~ It was a pleasure to see them at the finish line. Dave Turner and Mike McComas guided the big red Jeep to a top ten finish. Last year Dave found a tree with his name on it and then the engine let go. He was a much happier guy this year. Lon Peterson got hi,s Knight Su bani to the finish without a hitch as did Tom Ryther with Bill Gutzman in the right seat. Tom, Jonathan's father, is now a rally junkie like the rest of us. He had a big grin on his face all day. George Plsek kept his Audi on the wheels this year and finished in 10th place. You will recall George rolled his car last year right in front of the camera crew so we all got to enjoy his mishap over and over again! Bruce Brown and Pat Brown had a great run in their Subaru lmpreza in the GT class. This is the first rally Pat has navigated in for a lorig time and it was great to see her back in the co-drivei:'s seat. Chris Hamilton and Alex Vendler w<!re next in the class in 26th place. Scott and Tamara Clark were behind them in the Subaru RX. The Clark's adventure didn't finish there. Apparently, their service truck would not lock in four wheel drive so just getting their rig back to the hotel was an ordeal. They finally hooked their trailer to a ham radio operator's truck, drove their rally car back in and drove their truck out as well. Luckily control crews were there to help them most of the way. . Jim Gillaspy had fan woes on his RX7 when the blades self destructed and the car began to overheat. He was able to locate a new fan and continue on Saturday. _ Richard Byford and Fran Olson in the familiar yellow BMW finished second in the Gtoup 2/5 class on Friday and behind them was Dave Coleman in his Datsun 510. Ray Johansen and Brian Johnson hauled their VW Golf all the way from Connecticut to run with us and finished fourth in Group 2/5 just ahead of Flynn Baglin in his Datsun510.John Westpicked up a new navie, Paul Nelson, for Laughlin and finished sixth in class. Patrick Rodi and Jonathan Schiller took second in the Stock class in the RX7. This car was giving him big trouble just before the rally. It decided it didn't want to run and a lot of frantic e-mails were exchanged before it finally fired and ran the weekend before. Whew! The husband and wife team of Mike and Linda M.asano took on the snow challenge and finished third in the Stock class in their FX16. Nick Taylor and Pete Morris were having new engine problems, in the Toyota. Other non-finishers on Friday were Bob Wager in his VW bug (with a new body added this year), Nick Korpal, Matt Monaco and Jim Pierce. Qay 2 was equally tough. The stages going into the airport service were snow packed and icy and the infamous "hill" once again stopped a lot of the two wheel drive teams. Once again the Chavez/Robinson VWled the two wheel drives in eighth place. Alex Gelsomino and Alfredo DeDominicis were frrst finishers on Saturday. However, David Higgins and Ole Holter were 16 seconds behind them and had a two minute cushion on them for the two day overall score. Lauchlin O'Sullivan hit his stride and moved up to third place with Roger Hull and Sean Gallagher four minutes back. Ricardo Porta and his crazy RX7 AWD moved up in the pack with his new co-driver Mario Azemitzky, Everybody commented on the "madman" in the four ~heel drive Mazda passing cars in the ditch. Ricardo knows no fear, I hope Mario feels the same way. He must as he got back i~ the car after service for the wild ride back. Jim Gillaspy and Don Shreyer finished Day 2. in first place in Group 2/5. Richari,. Byford and Fran Olson toolc second and Flynn Baglin was third. These three teams ran right together all day. Dennis Chizma and Paul Timmerman brought up the rear of the class. The Brown Subaru was first again in the G/T class. This is twice in a row. Bruce, has Pat got a cattle prod in there giving you a poke once in a while so you don't doze off? Chris Hamilton was second again and the Clarks finished third plus their service vehicle made it no pi;oblem in and out of the service area.

second in Stock class after their snow driving lesson on Day l. Patrick Rodi took third. Bob Wager got his VW running and finished fourth in the class on Saturday. Lon Peterson, George Plsek, Dave Turner and Keith Roper all complete d D a y 2 in the Open class keeping George and Dave's 2001 championship hopes alive. Julius Vasari and Stuart Oater were still running in their Eclipse. Dave Coleman, John West, Leon Styles and Mike Whitman were not so lucky. The final day at Laughlin is always welcome as it is the Special Stage short course in Laughlin behind the casino. Jay Deacon did a great job creating the side by side slalom courses for the rally teams to run. You are the man! The CRS Open class championship was once again on the line on the final day. George Plsek and Lauchlin O'Sullivan gave a great show and in the end Lauchlin and John Dillon were Open class champs. Dave Turner and Mike McComas earned enough points to come in third in the 2001 season. The Group 2/5 race on Sunday was really for the co-driver championship between Fran Olson and Paul Timmerman. Fran's driver Richard Byford put on a great show until he had a momentary lapse and got the car stuck on a berm. Previous to that he had looked untouchable on the short course. Dennis Chizma took Paul to fourth in Group 2/5 which was enough to win the championship for Paul. Next year is yours, Fran! No more Viagra for Richard before his run! Tail end award for the rally goes to Scott and Tamara Clark in their Subaru RX. They just kept going despite crew truck problems on Day l. They always have a smile and you gotta love their "Big Dog'! crew who rides around in the Suburban. Speci'al mention is required for a couple of great guys from Colorado. On Saturday night Mark Cox and Jim Gill went back out on course and retrieved EMT, Scott Clukey's truck after he · had a run in with an Austrian tourist in a rental car. Once . again the Ramada Express International Rally was an adventure for everyone. Thanks Ray, Donna , Roger and Lynette for all of your time and effort. See you next year. Our first rally school is scheduled for February 23rd in Ridgecrest. For Dusty Times more information contact Ray Hocker at or call (760) 37 5-3289. A rally cross will be held on the following day out at the Fairgrounds. Plan on making it a full weekend of learning and driving. See you at the start line. ff Magnificent Race Team By Stephen Stenberg, President Welcome everyone. It is time to talk about the 2001, Baja 1000 stories. Ah, the stories and lore of Baja races. With enough to drink and plenty of wood to last the night, we might get to all of them within a few days. Everyone that has ever raced or pitted at a Baja race has at least one story to tell. I remember an old one, dating back tu 1974. I was working on a rescue team and we were stationed at the grand town of El Arco. Late at night, a small, stock headlight made its way into the pit. It was a rider on a Honda XL 70 with the biggest gas tank I've ever seen. You could poke your finger into this tank and it would reform itself when you pulled it out. The other thing was coming across a Model T between Bahia de Los Angeles and El Arco with two guys in fur coats and caps, heading to La Paz. You never know what you will see in Baja. Both of these teams finished the 1000. Before I begin with the stories, I want to take a moment to thank one of our guys, Eric Williams. He owns WRE Race Team here in La Mesa and competes in Class 1/ 2-1600, in both Score, BITD and FUD. He is the class leader in BITD for 2001. This year, he was featured on the one hour Speedvision show of the Vegas to Reno race. He gave Mag 7 a l o t of coverage with our stickers adorned all over his veh:icJe. I just wanted to say thank you Eric for all the publicity. Eric also acts as a pit captain when he isn't racing his own races. And he is looking for a cash sponsor if any of you are reading this right now. This year Baja 1000 was an interesting race. Sal used the Summit this year, something that I hadn't seen in over a decade. Something a lot of racers had never seen (makes you feel old, I know). I always remember racing in the early 80's and hating two parts of the Baj a. The Three Sisters and the summit were rotten places to ride or to break down. This race, Mag 7 had 24 racers entered on our team. Here are bits and pieces of their stories: Steve Bourgeois' team has been racing a Yamaha 250WR four stroke all season. Working the bugs out of it. They had early engine problems and then later in the evening their HID lights gave them fits and they blew the stator. So they stopped at the turn· off for Mike's and called it a night. Eddie Zeller's team, #302X was running fifth at the summit when they hit a rqck (do they have rocks on the summit?), shearing off the side case where the stator is. It took them nine hours to get the bike running again. They had to get help from multiple pits and redie and tap new bolts in the side case. They used the backup stock lighting coil and the stock light for the entire night and finished the race around nine the next rnurning. auJ. team won Class 30 Pro for2001.For2002,Edd~ is changing classes and entering Class 21 with a YZ250. Good luck guys! Next there was #202X. This was an all female team from Japan racing their first Baja race. They flew over two, XR250 Baja's with electric starters (domestic models). They called themselves the "Saboten Sisters" which means Cactus sisters. They live on Kyushu Island, which is in the southern part of Japan. The first rider was Mutsumi Yamashita who is 33 and works for a motorcycle shop. She pulled into our Mag 7 Pit 3 at Saldana. The Capt. there (Kirk Kontilis) said she was a very pleasant lady. The next rider to ride was Yuki Murai. She is 3 2 and a computer programmer. She probably had the wildest time of all three. The third rider was Mayumi Harada who is 30 years old and an ICU nurse. She came by my pit in the morning on Saturday and was very nice and polite. However, it was . Yuki February 2002 that was in for the experience of her life. Her bike broke down just past the Simpson stream crossing at night. She left it by the side of the course and started walking down the course. She knew there was a Mag 7 pit somewhere (26 miles further) and w as going to walk there. Remember now, this is her first time in Baja and first race as well. A Pro Truck from Colorado comes along and s ees a bike by the course. Hmmm, bikes usually are lying on their sides when broken down. About a quarter mile further uphill, they come across a rider waving at them. They stop and ask if he needs help? It is only when she replies, still wearing her helmet, that they realize this is a woman racer. She points down course and says Mag 7. They tell her to climb on board and sit on their spare tire, holding on to the light bar. Her legs are dangling between their two seats. The truck takes off and doesn't hold back for anything, and Yuki holds on like a trooper thru 26 miles of hills, gullies, rocks and dust. Now this will make a great Baja story in Japan I'm sure! Finally they arrive at the Mag 7 pit of Bill Kruckmeyer (Pit #7). Yuki jumps off, thanks the truck guys and is shivering like crazy in the 40* weather. She has ridden the entire Mike's Loop, Melling Ranch and then ridden on the back of a Pro Truck for 26 miles late at night. The truck moves off and Bill and crew wrap her in blankets, sit her by the fire and feed her food and coffee. After a while, her chase crew comes up in a van. Out jumps a cameraman, boom guy and a guy with a microphone. They are filming a documentary of the girl's race for Japanese TV. They get the bike, put Mayumi on it and off she rides as they load up and leave. Yuki sent a Christmas card to thank the truck guys and an e-mail thank you through her sponsor (Ishii Susumu of Riverside) for Mag 7 a~d Bill's crew. Just when you think you have heard everything up o this point in life? We noticed a load of Locos Mocos stickers on vehicles and bikes which told us they had stopped up there just past the silt hills. We stickered all non-Mag 7 vehicles. Two last things to mention here. One is to thank the Pro Truck crew that picked up our Japanese ride r and gave her a iife in the cold, Friday night. I can't say I have ever heard of that before. Especially since they got rid of Stuck Stubs. You guys are great in my book! The second is #801, Jesse Jones, Kirk Kontilis relayed a story about Jesse from his pit (Mag 7 #3). It seems that Pro Truck # 244 h a d stoppe d to help an injured quad racer (another first for me to see) who was hurt b adly. No one was stopping to help this guy after he said he was run over (like looking up at the skid plate run over) by a big truck that kept going. The co-driver of #244 stayed with the injured racer until he was safely air evaced out. Vehicle #244 continued racing. The co-driver then started walking the course headed toward Saldana. Then, along comes Jesse in #80la'nd picks up this co-driver, dropping him at our Mag 7 pit. We, in turn, found him a ride to the highway to meet up with his chase crew. So my hat is off to Mr. Jesse Jones. A first class guy in our eyes. He is known for giving assistance on the race course. So those are my stories. Mag 7 will be running a pit at Midway for the Whiplash Parker 400, if enough racers need our services. You can sign up for pits with Whiplash. You don't need to join Mag 7 for this race, since it is outside our normal race circuit. Currently we have 24 guys at this pit. The Mag 7 pit is made up of Mike Shannon's guys from Twentynine Palms and part of the Locos Mocos crew under Stuart Klien from Lakeside. This will be a Mag 7 pit only. So that should tell you the level of service you can expect there. Fueling anJ. welding/fixing will be the order of the day and night. We are also negotiating with J eepspeed, Clive Skilton on pitting the Jeepspeed series at MDR and the Baja 500. We will know more after January 20th.
