Last Great Road Trip receives support from Baja Designs. The folks at Baja Designs assist with the team’s need for off-road lights that will illuminate Last Great Road Trip’s drive down the Baja 1000 course trail.
Off-road adventures require a significant amount of support and planning, along with a little luck to be successful. A big part of planning goes into selecting the right equipment. The demands of driving off-road requires a clear view of the trail ahead regardless of the conditions. To achieve that clear view, means investing in a lighting system that can handle what ever mother nature throws your way including moonless nights, foul weather, pea soup fog and dust storms. In other words a lighting system capable of turning night into day. Last Great Road Trip is please to announce it has selected Baja Designs’ LaPaz and Fuego lighting components to illuminate their way as they explore the Baja Peninsula.
According to Paul Thompson, the teams project manager and driver, Last Great Road Trip wanted to select a lighting system that could be counted on, no matter what. Paul said, “We looked for a lighting system with high quality electronics, crystal clear optics and a reputation for dependability. We found Baja Designs’ components met all our requirements, and their team has a real love for what they do and what we are attempting.”
At Baja Designs, Chris Chapman said, “When Paul contacted me and explained that his team planned to explore Baja following the 2007 SCORE Baja 1000 course coordinates I knew that we had just what they needed. Covering the 1300 miles of treacherous terrain would require driving deep into the night. Baja Designs Inc. president/owner Alan Roach and Baja Designs engineer Tex Mitchell have competed in the prestigious Baja 1000 over 20 times between the two of them. They are meticulous in their work and spend countless hours testing all of our products at night to get the optimal pattern and output. Being located in San Marcos, CA we are also able to test with some of the biggest names in off-road racing. After discussing the vehicle and the team’s needs with Paul we suggested a combination of our Soltek Lighting Systems Fuego 4” HID and LaPaz 8” HID products which would easily perform just as Paul needed.
Here at Baja Designs we love the people in Baja and their passion for off-road racing that is obvious even in the most remote corners where stickers, posters and photos cover walls in place of wallpaper. There is nothing more rewarding than swapping stories with the locals over a hot meal after a long day on the trail. We wish Paul a most enjoyable off-road adventure and are glad that he chose Baja Designs to light the way!”
Last Great Road Trip continues to shine a light on the need to dismantle bigotry and replace it with a celebration of our diversity. Thanks to the support of Baja Designs we will all see the way a little more clearly.
