2013 Class 7 Baja 1000 WinnerGuillermo and Igor Galvan ran the 45th SCORE-International Baja 1000 event in November. With only 58% of starting teams coming across the finish line, completing the 1,121.55 mile race is impressive enough…but Guillermo and Igor did not just finish, they came across the line as the top finishers in the Open, Production Mini-trucks class.

Hyperco is proud to make a product that can stand up to the kind of workout provided by long desert racing events like the Baja 1000, so hearing from the Galvans was a great experience. However, Guillermo and Igor also let us know that the Hypercoils they were using had already seen a few racing seasons. Every time we hear stories of our products being able to stand up year after year and still provide race-winning results, it gives us a warm, fuzzy feeling, but a race like the Baja 1000 is a story that deserves to be shared.

Congratulations to Guillermo and Igor for their awesome finish! For the full list of Baja 1000 winners, you can visit the SCORE web site. We’re pretty sure we have more friends on that list, and would love to hear from more of them.
