The Latest From NORRA
The Fab School Repair Team Is Back At The 2022 Yokohama NORRA Mexican 1000 Presented By Method Race Wheels!
Daily On-site Fabrication Repairs For All Competitors At Each Finish Line
AGUA DULCE, CALIF. Yokohama NORRA Mexican 1000 participants will have fabrication support along the entire way provided by The Fab School. The Fab School will have a team of 3 or 4 fabricators who will head out each morning and be set up to do repairs if needed as the drivers arrive at the finish each day. With help from Miller, and The Fab School, everyone will have expert fabricators standing by to repair anything needing welding or fabrication. They don’t do mechanical or electrical work, but they can get your vehicle back in one piece if needed. These dedicated fabricators will work late into the night when called upon. Competitors will have fabrication resources at their disposal, and the fabricating team will put their technical training in problem solving to use in competition conditions. It’s a win for everyone.
The Fab School was established by fabricator Troy Johnson in 2005 to pass down the skills he honed working for top offroad race teams to the next generation. Like NORRA, they celebrate the past while forging the future. Their graduates have gone on to be crucial members of professional teams in many types of racing. Some have established their own companies to produce complete cars and/or specialty parts. The Fab School is an accredited vocational training facility that supports the military through the GI Bill®, and its students are eligible for federal financial aid. The school has grown to offer a diverse curriculum that includes welding, metal fabrication, 3D Printing, CAD/CAM design, CNC machinery, and carbon fiber construction methods.

We happily welcome Miller, and The Fab School to the NORRA family. NORRA competitors run the gamut from offroad racing icons and current stars, to adventure seeking average Joes and well-travelled lovers of Baja. NORRA has classes for bikes, quads, UTV’s, and 4 wheel classes for everything from vintage vehicles to state of the art race cars. After each day of racing, you will have enough free time to make repairs, and prepare for the following day while experiencing a different location in Baja. Each overnight stop has its own unique charm and character. Every team stays in the same towns and attends the same events every night. The very first adventurers who set off to run the Baja peninsula would throw a huge celebration afterwards to mark their accomplishment. That tradition continues to this day at the Mexican 1000. If you love to race, love to have fun, and love the food, drink and music of Baja, you must come down and experience “The Happiest Race On Earth!”, the NORRA Mexican 1000.

### Good Vibes. Good Times! ###
Beginning in 2010, the National Off Road Racing Association (NORRA) began promoting a rebirth of the NORRA Mexican 1000 rally. The unique off-road rally was co-created by promoter Mike Pearlman to consist of special stages (unlimited speed timed stages in the dirt) linked together by controlled speed liaison / transit sections (highway). The one-of-a-kind, once-a-year, five-day rally includes vintage off-road vehicles and motorcycles, as well as modern pre-runners, trucks, buggies, UTVs, bikes and desert Rally Raid cars.
Pearlman’s late father Ed and others established the first running of the NORRA Mexican 1000 off-road rally in November of 1967, which eventually became internationally recognized and evolved into the Baja 1000 in the mid-1970's.
NORRA enjoys corporate partnerships with Yokohama Tire, Method Race Wheels, South Point Hotel & Casino, Bilstein Shock Absorbers, STEEL-IT, Multitool USA, Satélite del Norte, Biltwell, Cervecería Transpeninsular, PCI Race Radios, Schampa, Optima Batteries, K&N, Horsepower Ranch, Jimmy Lewis, RMS, Baja Bush Pilots, The Fab School, Mag7 Pits, the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame (ORMHOF), B3KREATIV, and many more.
