Competitors will also be encouraged to make a practice run on Thursday in preparation for the scored runs beginning on Friday.

A cap of 144 entries is expected at the start line for the first event of it’s kind in Baja Mexico with racers coming from all over the United States and Mexico to participate.

Online registration, by class, for Pro and Sportsman cars, trucks, UTVs, motorcycles and quads, is ongoing through the official Mike’s Peak Hill Climb Challenge website. Drivers and co-drivers are also able to download the registration form and email or mail your entry form in if you prefer that method of entering.

Entries will be accepted until 3 p.m. on Saturday, October 1. Late entries after that date and all on-site late entries will be accessed a $200.00 USD late fee added to the original cost.

In addition to drivers and co-drivers filling out the Mike’s Peak Hill Climb Challenge registration and submitting payment, all competitors must apply for a United States Auto Club (USAC) SST Mike’s Peak Hill Climb Challenge single event license and provide proof of receipt.

The deadline to enter the race in order to be included in the drawing for starting positions is Saturday, October 1. The drawing, to determine the start order within each class, will be held on Monday, October 3.

When finished, the 31 km race course will be another memorable example of all that Mexico’s Baja California has to offer, including natural rollers, water crossings, high-speed dirt trails, sandy, rocky and silty natural terrain, and cattle guards, all while climbing to the top of Mike’s Sky Rancho at over 4,000 feet. The course will be another jewel reflecting the natural beauty Baja California represents.

Race week festivities will start Monday October 10, ONLINE on OFF-ROAD LIVE! from San Diego, The Gateway To Baja Mexico! 4PM West, 7 East.

In Ensenada, at the Riviera del Pacifico Cultural Center, in the heart of Ensenada, will be the site of many of the activities surrounding the Mike’s Peak Hill Climb Challenge. Racer registration, Media registration and mandatory pre-race meeting will all be held at the Riviera on Wednesday, October 12.
On Wednesday October 12, the daylong, pre-race Manufacturer’s Midway and contingency/tech festival will run in front of the Riviera del Pacifico Center in Ensenada. 

Wednesday night, ONLINE on  
MONSTER Mike's GARAGE runs from 5PM to 11PM.

Racers will move out 52 miles east of Ensenada on Hwy 3 in close proximity towards San Felipe Valley and Trinidad where numerous 30’ x 70’ camp spots will await competitors arrival for set up.

Shortly after sunrise Thursday morning October 13, competitors will all have their first opportunity to tackle the course up the challenging hill to Mike’s Sky Rancho. Competitors will have one opportunity to make a practice run.

Friday, Saturday, and Sunday based on class size competitors will be scheduled to make timed race passes up the hill to be scored towards whom is the fastest to Mike’s Peak.

On-site camping, close proximity to Ensenada (52 miles East on Hwy 3), San Felipe Valley, and Trinidad, and multiple road access to viewing points, mean the race to Mike’s Peak will instantly become a fan and driver favorite. Add to that a Mexican Fiesta under the stars of Baja California each night for all drivers and guests. Rooms and camping at the Ranch will be open to all competitors on a first come, first served basis, and will be part of the entry fee.

Mike Leon, an American citizen whose family came from Jalisco, Mexico, had owned a couple of bars in Tijuana, but by the mid-1960s he’d had enough of the demanding grind and began looking for a more pastoral setting. In 1967, he bought several thousand acres under the dark skies and twinkling stars of Baja California’s highest mountains and opened Mike’s Sky Rancho, a guest resort in the high foothills of the San Pedro Mártir. Sitting on a knoll above the San Rafael creek in a picturesque and wooded valley, it’s a steep, brush-covered mountains rise in the background to the pine-covered 7,100-foot summit of Cerro San Matìas, visible off to the east. The crystal-clear San Rafael stream winds through the valley floor and must be forded to reach the ranch.
