November 5, 2015, Felton, Calif. — Desert Dingo Racing announced today that Fibercraft has signed on to sponsor the team’s sixth run at the Baja 1000, which takes place November 19-21 in Baja California, Mexico.
Fibercraft is providing Desert Dingo Racing with VW parts and race equipment.
“Fibercraft has been supporting the air-cooled community since it was founded in 1967,” said Desert Dingo Racing co-founder Jim Graham. “They’re tremendously supportive of our race effort and we’ve learned a lot from their experience off roading.”
The Baja 1000 draws more than 100,000 spectators to Ensenada on the Baja Peninsula for Race Week, which culminates with the estimated 300+ teams pushing their race rigs through downtown streets for a daylong tech and contingency parade. This year’s course is an 840-mile loop starting and finishing in Ensenada.
“We’ve been around since the early days of off roading, building some of the first dune buggies for Reno-area enthusiasts,” said Fibercraft co-owner Collin Wiley. “The Dingos have done great work bringing attention back to old school air-cooled racing and we love supporting their race effort.”
Desert Dingo Racing campaigns a 1969 Volkswagen Beetle in off road races in the U.S. and Mexico. The team is the official World Diabetes Day off road race team and works with the International Diabetes Federation to raise money for diabetes education and awareness programs. The team makes the car available for public events and distributes thousands of hero cards with the warning signs of diabetes printed on the back in English and Spanish.
