Desert Dingo Racing, a Class 11 VW team that races the Baja 1000 and off road desert races in California and Nevada, is looking for a couple of new team members.

We campaign a Class 11 Stock Bug in the Valley Off Road Racing Association (http://www.vorra.net) and the Baja 1000. We finished third in class in SNORE in 2009 and second in class in VORRA in 2010. We've done the Baja 1000 three times (yet to finish).

Class 11s are the slowest of the slow, and yet we're a fan favorite. If you're unfamiliar with Stock Bug racing, check out this clip from "Dust to Glory" - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2CcJOzuEmDU . Now check out our media coverage - http://www.desertdingo.com/news.html . We also raise money for diabetes awareness and education programs in partnership with the International Diabetes Federation (http://www.idf.org).

Reasons for joining the team:
- You get to say "Baja 1000? Yeah, I race that."
- You have more money than sense.
- You like signing autographs and look good in a race suit.
- You want to justify that lifted Tacoma as your daily driver.

Reasons for clicking on the next ad:
- You have an aversion to grease, bitter cold, sleeping in the dirt, using a catheter or suffer from avian bone syndrome.
- The idea of spending weeks prepping a 40 year old Volkswagen for a few hours of awesomeness doesn't sound like a lot of fun.
- You have difficulty hedging about "where all that money went."

Check us out online at http://www.desertdingo.com

Interested? Email me at [email protected]

P.S. Honor and recognition in case of success.

Most of our racing is in NorCal - Sacramento for short course racing, Reno, Yerington, Fallon for the desert races. We've had a couple of people move on to other projects and figured this was a good time to find out if there was anyone out there interested in being part of the team.

We're wrapping up a ground-up rebuild of the car (incorporating everything we've learned from three years of desert racing). We're looking for folks in particular who know VWs or general fabrication, as well as folks with pickups (4WD a bonus) for the occasional towing and chase truck duty.

We all chip in cash when we have it. Anyone who works on the car or contributes cash gets seat time, starting as a co-driver and progressing to driver.

We've done the Baja 1000 three times - never finished - but based on what we've learned, I'm pretty confident we're going to finish it this year.

What else would you like to know?

Jim

P.S. I've been contacted by some folks in Southern California. I've told them that if they're interested in racing, there are a number of 11 teams down there. We're always open for help at the 1000, where we run three chase trucks.

Pretty much everyone on Class 11 Coalition is SoCal. Check out http://www.class11coalition.com . Most of them run SNORE or MORE.
