Of all the epic desert races, the Baja 1000 is one of the most infamous, drawing competitors from across the globe. It’s a spectacular sight to watch their fully-customized race trucks bombing through the course at full speed, but in a way, it’s even more impressive to watch class 11 – the stock Volkswagon Type One Beetles – complete the same racecourse. But why would someone want to drive a Bettle in this race? Perhaps the appeal comes from an enhanced sense of accomplishment that one experiences when crossing the finish line. Whatever the motivation, one team to keep your eye on this season is Fourtillfour Car Club.
