Cross Country Rally is probably the most accessible car racing category. No tricky cold tires & brakes to warm up, no door-to-door fighting, no trees around you just open space, reasonable top speed, just the pleasure of gliding at your own rhythm in a wonderful countryside with the added value of a 3rd dimension thanks to the jumps. Cross County Rally is a mix between karting and a secure motocross, well … with Dunbee at least.
[ 2 days ] A Baja is a Cross Country Rally which lasts no more than 2 days. Most of the time they are composed of loops around an assistance point which gives everyone the opportunity to improve their performance and car handling. The format of a Baja is ideal for a gentleman driver working all week who wants to have maximum driving time (up to 600 km per day!). Every year there are more Bajas organized in Europe, Middle-East, and Eastern Countries, mainly near large cities with all the facilities required (airport, hotel).
