THE LEGEND AND OFFROAD HALL OF FAMER, WALKER EVANS, has confirmed his presence in Guanajuato, at the annual MXRRA® ROCK RACING RALLY. The LEGEND will be arriving at the international airport of Guanajuato BJX, where he’ll be providing an alternative attraction and mixing with the other drivers and fans. WALKER will be our main guest star and will be driving the zero car at the rally.

The rally will get off to a colorful start in the city of Guanajuato, to the sound of mariachis, and folk music that set many a foot tapping, together with many other expressions of Mexican culture. Guanajuato, a World Heritage town, will once again get ready to throw another bongo bash to welcome about 40-50 teams who will be fighting for first place, when the race is on.

The main ceremonial start for this edition will once again take place in front of both the Jardin De Union and the Alhóndiga de Granaditas, where more than 45,000 people gather to give rally participants a typically warm Mexican welcome, and to wish them good luck in the race.

The icing on the cake will be Walker´s appearance to surprise the crowd, getting the Mexican feeling started.

During the Shakedown in colonial downtown, local kids and fans will have the chance to meet and take pictures with WALKER, also offering the other special guests the experience of riding shotgun with the LEGEND!

After the Shakedown, Walker and the other teams will be presented at the traditional presentation at the historical alhondiga de granaditas. This is the same place where Mexico took its independance from Spain.

We can also confirm that the LEGEND will be present at the Start Ceremony, but this time aboard the “0” car. So, given his charisma and the special empathy he has with the Mexican fans, it’ll be quite a show.

This time the start line for the rally will be at the Presa de la Olla located 10 minutes down from the offroad park PLANET GTOROCKS, where more than a good 20,000 people gather every sunday. Continuing up to the park to run 2 more rally stages. We expect also an increase in fans up in the park to jump to at least 15,000 fans.

With this confirmation, WALKER EVANS joins the contingent of world personalities at the annual MXRRA ROCK RACING RALLY 2009, and, although he won't be competing, he will have praised us all with his presence.

GRACIAS SR. WALKER EVANS for helping us promote this rock motorsport in MEXICO and LATIN AMERICA! :D GTO IS YOUR HOME.

MXRRA® WELCOMES TEAMS FROM MEXICO, USA. COSTA RICA, VENEZUELA, AND ENGLAND! :grinpimp:

See you next summer.

4 KMS THRU HELL AT AN ALTITUDE OF 7500 - 8000 ft :evil:

Stage 1. This stage will not be timed but it is a tough climb up and you must reach the second stage within 20 minutes or receive a penalty. It can be done easily within 10 minutes. We recommend you tune your rigs and double check your cooling to this altitude to avoid problems.

RALLY CAMPUS, RALLY STAGES 1, 2, 3 and FINISH POINT. 4 CHECK POINTS.

WE MANAGED TO PULL OFF THE FIRST 2 DAYS OF THE EVENT AND THEN HAD TO CANCEL THE RACING ON SUNDAY DUE TO SAFETY REASONS.

WE TRIED OUR HARDEST, BUT OUR SPONSOR CORONA FAILED TO COME THRU IN THE END AND WE HAD NO SPONSORSHIP $.

THE PARTY WAS STILL LOTS OF FUN AND WE PUT ON A GREAT SHOW THE FIRST DAY IN THE LITTLE NEIGHBORHOOD TOWN OF SILAO. THIS WAS THE FIRST TIME WE GO THERE AND THE LOCAL OFFICIALS SPONSORED EVERYTHING. THE AFTER PARTY ENDED WITH A LIVE ROCK BAND MINI CONCERT ON SUNDAY. EVERYONE WAS STILL AWARDED TROFIES.

MXRRA HAS SHUT DOWN AND DECIDED THIS WOULD BE THE LAST INTERNATIONAL EVENT. ITS TIME TO MOVE ON...IT WAS FUN. GLAD TO SEE NORWAY GOT TO EXPERIENCE MXRRA BACK IN NOV 2008 :beer:
