2014 Yolo Race Team2014 Yolo Race Team

   YOLO Racing, is a Canadian off-road racing team, based out of Vancouver, BC. This year we will be competing in the most famous off-road race in the world. The legendary Baja 1000. The team has a few new faces and is ready to go for the first place position. Preparation for the 2017 race is well underway and the team is committed to being the best it can be for the 50th anniversary of BAJA 1000.

 Yolo Racing has been competing in the Baja California,  Mexico since 2008. In our first year of challenging the Baja 1000, we were pleased with a finish and a 6th place result. The following year we bettered our finish, to make it to the podium, in 3rd place. With the gained experience we were able to move up a spot on the podium, and stand proud, with a 2nd place in the 2010. At this point the team decided to sit out a season and prepare to compete in the overall championship. In 2012 we went for it, and competed in the entire Score International Championship Series. Our team finished the 2012 Season 1st in points and were awarded the 2012 SCORE 5/1600 Class Championship. We raced all 5 SCORE races in 2012. Placing 1st in Laughlin, 1st in the San Felipe 250, 3rd in the Baja 500 and 2nd in the Baja 1000. We are the first Canadian team, in the history of the sport, to achieve such an award. 
In recent years, competing in the Baja 1000, Yolo Racing placed 5th in 2013, 4th in 2014, 3rd in 2015, and 3rd in 2016. 


   SCORE International is an off-road sanctioning body in the sport of desert racing. Every year, the best off-road racing teams in the world, meet on the Baja Peninsula of Mexico, to compete in the SCORE INTERNATIONAL desert racing series. The Baja 1000 is the flagship event. The SCORE series attracts teams from around the world, competing in 27 classes with 300-400 entries from thirty States and over a dozen countries. The gruelling courses run through villages along the Baja peninsula, luring thousands of spectators. Less than half of the entries finish these races, where anything can happen. Over its colourful history the SCORE series has drawn competitors from all walks of life. Simple privateer teams to multi-million dollar teams, compete together over the entire course. The popularity of these races have exploded in recent years, attracting World Rally Champions, NASCAR champions, “A-list” movie stars, motorcycle champions, television celebrities and blue-collar adventure seekers.

   Our team is made up of a group of Professional Firefighters and friends. Besides racing we also represent a charity. Firefighters Without Borders Canada. An organization, which provides training and equipment, to fire departments around the world. 


   We have various fundraising events throughout the year, and for every race we attend, we deliver equipment to various communities that are in need, throughout the Baja Peninsula of Mexico. In 2012 we outfitted 75 Firefighters in the communities of Rosarito and Mulege with their very own firefighting gear. Consisting of helmets, jackets, pants, boots and gloves. In 2016, we helped Firefighters Without Borders Canada to donate a fully equipped pumper truck to the town of La Mision, located north of Ensenada. 

   Sponsorship plays an important role in achieving both our racing and charitable goals. We have a number of great promotional ideas and sponsorship opportunities in 2017.
