"BAJA GREECE" is a compact Offroad event with its main concept "Arrive - Race - Enjoy - Depart" and all this within a weekend of racing program.
BAJA GREECE 2020 revives offroad endurance races that were organized in Greece in decade of the 90s. This kind of race setup combines lots of racing kilometers with low Entry Fee cost without any discount in Organization infrastructure and competitor’s safety precautions.
After a Prologue Stage, competitors are requested to run a series of non-stop laps of cycle-shape Special Stage which is closed to other vehicles traffic.
The total number of rounds that have to be run are considered as one and unique Special Stage with only one timing. Thus, timing counts from the start of the 1st round until the finish of the last round.
Timing continues to count even if the competitor enters in Service Park for repairs. Service Park area is attached to Special Stage and competitors may enter and exit as many times as they wish.
“Neutral Time” is predetermined only for refuel of competition vehicles in specified area called “refuel zone” which is same for all competitors. In refuel zone any kind of repairs is strictly forbidden.
BAJA GREECE offers to competitors a race with a long range Special Stage against the chronometer, to evaluate vehicle’s and competitor’s endurance, to plan a strategy in order to finish race, to demonstrate noble competition and genuine motorsport spirit by overtake other competitors and allow to be overtaken by faster competitors.
Driver’s ability to stay concentrated for many kilometers and the ability of co-driver to point sections of Special Stage that need attention and at the same time to keep his driver in a constant driving rhythm, avoiding fatigue of vehicle and crew, are some of the unique characteristics that this type of event makes it special.
Organizers, in order to assist strategy planning during the race, will provide competitors with provisional classification results by sending to all co-drivers messages to “BAJA GREECE WhatApp Group”. Co-drivers must compulsory be registered to this group. This procedure will facilitate competitors to adjust their driving according to their objectives.
