Mark Handley / Solar Racing look forward to San Felipe

Mark Handley / Solar Racing prepare to head south across the Mexican border to San Felipe in just a couple of weeks. The second race of the SCORE International Off-Road Series takes place near the seaside town of San Felipe, Baja California, Mexico. This is a favorite for many of the race teams and fans. Last count was close to 300 teams participating from around the world.

This will be Solar Racing's 4th attempt at this challenging desert paradise. Although the course is just under 250 miles, the team has yet to finish any of its attempts. Year 1 was literally two days after acquiring the race truck. Alternator problems led to a DNF (did not finish) due to not meeting checkpoint times, timed out approximately race mile 130. Year 2 was a DNF due to catastrophic motor issues. Out at race mile 50. Year 3 was competitive race until the distributor gear on new motor shredded. Although the part was replaced, still timed out approximately race mile 130. Another DNF.

This year however holds high expectations for the Solar Racing Team. With continued chase and pit support from ACE Motorsports and the long time sponsors such as Goodyear, Bilstein, National Springs, and Strider Knives, as well as other sponsors like Insurance4Mexico.com, the Bay Club Hotel, Spectrum Assembly and Help-U-Sell, the Solar Racing Team plans on a very competitive season.
