!Hola! In less than a week, my dad, my brother, my dad's friend, Rene and I are racing a 1952 Ford Victoria across Mexico from south to north in a vintage car race called La Carrera Panamericana. We will race for 7 straight days and cover almost 2,000 miles of Mexican desert, tropics, mountains, coastline, and jungle.
The legendary La Carrera was originally run in Mexico from 1950 to 1954 to promote tourism and advertise the opening of the Panamerican Highway. The race did its advertising duty and was eventually shut down due to the number of fatalities, but was reincarnated in the late 80s.
Veracruz to Monterrey.....November 10-16th, 2006.....join us here for the adventure....it is sure to be a trip.
