Baja Bangkok Motor Show: SE-Asia FIA-Baja Candidate postponed.

The organizers of the Bangkok Motor Show Challenge regret to announce the postponement of the Baja rally from its scheduled date in March 2008. In the current uncertain climate in the cross-country world caused by the unprincipled tactics of A.S.O in introducing the new "Dakar Series" event in April, there has been little or no response to BMSC from potential European competitors.

Response from potential overseas competitors in SE Asia has also been limited due to the nature of a Baja having only 2 competitive days. The organizers of Bangkok Motor Show Challenge have advised FIA, they now longer wish the rally to be a candidate event for International Cup for Bajas.

The Bangkok Motor Show Challenge will now be run in August in tandem with the annual Asia Cross-Country rally with Asia-Zone status. This rally will be held from August 9th - 16th and will start in Bangkok and finish at the Petronus Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The route will include overnight halts at Cha'am, Chumphon, Surat Thani, Hat Yai, Alor Setar and Penang. The final Special Stage of the rally will be 2 laps of the Grand Prix Formula 1 circuit at Sepang. Competitors from Japan, Korea, Taiwan and Malaysia will compete against a strong line-up of local Thai rally drivers.
