La Carrera Panamericana Mexican Road Race first began in 1950 and was hailed as one of the most famous events in auto racing history. However, La Carrera only ran for a short time, ending in 1954. Over thirty years passed before the event was brought back as a "stage rally" going from southern Mexico up to the border over a seven day period. In keeping with the historical format, all participants must drive a vehicle from 1965 or older, or compete in the unlimited class. Every year La Carrera Panamericana draws 100 amateur racing teams from around the world to compete in this grueling event where just reaching the finish line is a victory. The race route for 2010 will take the racers through Chiapas, Oaxaca, Puebla, Querétaro, Morelia, Guadalajara, Aguascalientes and will end in Zacatecas.
Here is a short video from the 2006 Carrera Panamericana:

Where do i start..... you dont know you have good insurance until you have to actually use it. I...ave had Baja Bound INS for over 5 years and just recently got into an accident all the way down in Cabo. This was one of the smoothest processes I've ever been through. I would even say smother that having a accident in the states. The adjuster was on site within the hour, delt with the local police for me and made everything go so smooth. I cant say thanks enough to Geoff and his team for helping me out. I'm never leaving you guys!!!!!!!
Wonderful customer service, they made it easy to get my motorcycle insured for a last minute trip...into Mexico. Explained the coverage with full detail and explained the process if any claim needed to be done. Definitely recommend.
