About

Off the line at the 2008 Baja 1000The Team: Desert Dingo Racing is a team of high tech professionals based in Santa Cruz and Silicon Valley, California (and one Canadian) campaigning a ’69 VW Beetle in off road desert racing as part of the Valley Off Road Racing Association and the Baja 1000.

The Car: Class 11 is reserved for near-stock old-generation VW Beetles. The only major modification is a roll cage and average speed on the desert course is 25-35 mph.

The Racing: The Baja 1000 is an off-road desert race that takes place on Mexico’s Baja Peninsula each November. The race attracts upward of 300,000 spectators and brings in teams from all over the world. Desert Dingo Racing also competes in the Valley Off Road Racing Association desert and short course race series.

The Goal: Desert Dingo Racing is as committed to community service as it is to winning races. We’ve teamed with the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) in support of its campaign to raise awareness of diabetes issues worldwide. Each year we host a drive-a-thon to raise money for the World Diabetes Day campaign. 100% of the money raised goes to the IDF. We hope you’ll join us in the effort.

We also make the car and drivers available for public appearances. For more information, contact Jim Graham at jim@desertdingo.com .
