...especially this man and his team,Bob Land of Bob Land Racing.
Bob was campaigning a '89 Jeep Cherokee in Category 5.I got to the Hotel Colonial in Mexicali(NORRA HQ) a few days early and Bob and I were the only ones there,he was waiting for the guys to come down with the #38 Jeep.....
The view the next morning.As Bob said of Casa Diaz,a million dollar view..........with no windows.
Day 2,the chase truck with Peter and his son Eric,who is also a co-driver,waiting at a Pemex gas station for the 38 Jeep.
Fuel for the car,fuel for the driver.Bob Land takes a much needed and a very quick pit stop.
Day 2 proved to be a difficult stage for the 38 Jeep,they broke a suspension strut in the interior cage and had no brakes for most of the day.So when the end of Day 2 rolled around it was all work for the guys.
So Bob Land Racing ended up finishing in La Paz and coming in 1st in Class.Congratulations to the whole team.
And to all the guys,Enrique,Bob,Ramon,Robert,Eric,Peter and Ruben,thank you for all your help,friendship and generosity.It really made my first Mexican 1000 rally a memorable one.
The finish line in La Paz,Baja California,1000 miles of pretty brutal on/off road later.
