2021 Roads Calendar Taking Shape

Yes the TT Races may absent again for 2021 but there’s still lots of great events for racers, teams, fans to look forward to next year including the inaugural Baja International Tourist Cup.

Located close to the USA/Mexico border, the event which is the brainchild of respected race events organiser Pedro A.Vargas Valdez is hoped to open the 2021 real roads season on the 13th February.

Racers to date to express an interest in sampling the prospective Baja International Tourist Cup include reigning San Pedro Martir Hill Climb winner Eric Foutch, Brazil’s Rafael Paschoalin, former TT competitors Wade Boyd and Alex Torres Mori.
