Baja 300 Powerdays Germany: Event cancelled for 2010, new start in 2011.





An as yet uncompleted permit procedure forces organisers to postpone the date "We don’t do things by half measures" - Partners Armin Schwarz and SCORE boss Sal Fish from America stick to their style and maintain their course.

"This unique motorsport event will go on." This is the promise from Germany’s rally ace Armin Schwarz as initiator as well as organiser Sal Fish, President of the SCORE International Offroad Racing Series, the world’s largest offroad racing association with its headquarters in Los Angeles, after the resounding success of last year’s inaugural Baja 300 Powerdays Germany with around 20,000 excited fans - despite changeable weather conditions.

Preparations are running at high revs. It’s no wonder then that after the unforgettable show event last year with world and European champions, Indy and Dakar winners, freestylers and motocross aces, a real race is now planned to follow. Confirming their participation again are many top pilots from around the globe and, of course, the crème de la crème of the American Score competitors with their 850+hp Offroad machines.

"Interest is huge, whether in the USA, Europe and in northeast Germany," states initiator Schwarz and explains: "Such a mammoth event needs a huge amount of preparation. Luckily, we work exceedingly well with the residents, associations and authorities. Our ideas have been welcomed with enthusiasm and we have agreed with public and private representatives that the Baja 300 Powerdays Germany is not a one off event but something we want to establish as a long-term motorsport festival. For this it is important to fulfil all requirements even if it means that, due to the extensive permit procedures, time is running out."

Ten weeks before the new edition of the Baja 300 Powerdays Germany was scheduled, the organisers have now made the decision to postpone the event. Sal Fish, who as SCORE President is the mastermind behind the greatest of all offroad races, the BAJA 1000 through Mexico’s Baja California, says: "I’m not the only one that’s feeling sorry about this postponement, so is Armin and everyone else involved. But planning reliability and trust in the organisation is a major factor in the long term success of such an event. This year, the timeframe for the Baja 300 Powerdays Germany is way too tight. Interest from the SCORE teams in the USA and Mexico is enormous, but in order to handle the transport of the vehicles they need a firm commitment which unfortunately we cannot give them just yet."

This, however, adds a top date to the 2011 motorsport calendar. "We don’t do things by half measures," said Schwarz and Fish. "Those who know us, also know that we will use the remaining time well and come up with even more goodies," said the former European Rally Champion from Germany.

One thing is already confirmed: In Spring 2011, there will be one massive summit meeting on German soil with all top offroad categories from the SCORE, cross country and rally factions as well as motocross, enduro, quad and freestylers. The Baja 300 Powerdays Germany is open to all safe race vehicles, from SCORE Trophy Trucks to Buggys, vehicles complying with Dakar regulations to standard SUVs, and motocross, enduro or electric bikes. Whoever wants to drive, can drive.

SCORE supremo Sal Fish concludes: "We all share the same passion. Anyone should be able to experience the same field, the same track and the same adventure as the super stars of our sport and to pit themselves directly against them. Now we go full steam ahead and very much look forward to the 2011 Baja 300 Powerdays Germany."
