Baja 1000 suspended and Score International fined US$27,000

Translated by Fulano from an article in El Vigia.

Score International was fined more than 500,000 pesos and as a precautionary measure, to guarantee payment, there is a temporary suspension of the Score Baja 1000 race.

The Federal Environmental Protection Agency levied the sanction because in the last offroad race the course went through protected areas of the Valle de los Cirios.

Among the damages caused was the destruction of lophocereus schottii cacti, which are a protected species.
