Watch the most amazing Baja 1000 video ever captured
GoPro has put together a feature length, 15-minute video shot entirely with the company’s new Hero3 video camera. It covers the recent Baja 1000 race, last November, “through the eyes” of racer Bryce Menzies and the Menzies Motorsports team.
You can check out what the video covers below and watch it above. We’ll warn you though, this video is intense and you’ll lose 15-minutes of your time rather quickly.
Bryce Menzies and the Menzies Motorsports team are fresh off a second-place-overall finish at the San Felipe 250, and are gearing up for the first round of the TORC Off-Road Championship at Primm, so it is only fitting that GoPro launches its first full-length story video of the dominant racer.
This past November, GoPro athlete Bryce Menzies embarked on the grueling 1000-mile quest for glory that is the SCORE Baja 1000. With a small GoPro production crew at his side and HERO3 cameras capturing every possible angle, Menzies took the Mexican peninsula by storm.
From start to checkered flag, get the most comprehensive, up-close experience at one of the most intense, dangerous races in the world. In the cockpit, at the checkpoints…see Baja through the eyes of Menzies, his co-pilot, his mechanics, and even the GoPro staff.
As GoPro’s longest edit to date, Menzies’ Baja 1000 race video tells the entire story of the trophy truck racer’s battle through the desert. From his chase for the lead, to the truck’s mechanical issues, to his support staff as they track him throughout the course, you watch it all unfold with unprecedented viewpoints.
Whether you are a die-hard race fan or a casual observer, you will not want to miss this.
