Ford introduced the Bronco R race prototype to the Baja 1000 for the second year in a row, this time with the Blue Oval off-road machine finishing the race. Last year, the performance of the Bronco R and its team was impaired by a number of issues that prevented them from completing the course. This year, they crossed the finish line in just over 32 and a half hours.
Ford’s stated Baja 1000 goals are to validate and test production Bronco components, including a 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine with bone stock to power the racing prototype and a 10-speed automatic transmission, and to calibrate the SUV’s Baja GOAT mode. Was to improve. Not surprisingly, the finish of the race was also included in the team’s list of priorities, ranking second in the class and 70th overall among the 99 finishers.
The Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus was the only other team competing in the same Class 2 as the Bronco R race prototype. SCG Boot won the class at 27:15:46. Its strong finish was enough for SCG to take 42nd place overall.
Congratulations to both teams for finishing the tough off-road race.
