The Baja 1000 is a monster cross-dessert road race that spans the entire length of Baja California. 1000 grueling miles - taken at top speed. Now introducing a new class of entry: the "One Tank Unlimited Solo." That's right: one driver, one tank of gas to run the 1000 miles. Designed for this class is the Bio Runner, courtesy of Volkswagen/Audi.

To make this even cooler, the Support Team Chopper follows along and in the event of a crash, swoops down to perform repairs. It also contains telemetry analysis software, which in the case of emergency, takes over piloting to avoid danger unseen by the driver. Stats for Extreme Off-Road Trending: Older & Mild
