BFGoodrich: ‘Baja Master’!
Friday, 24 February 2012
BFGoodrich's debut in off-road motorsport dates back to
the USA's 'baja' scene of the 1970s. Last November, the brand
celebrated its 25th win on the famous Baja 1000.
BFGoodrich's first wins on the Baja 500 and Baja 1000 - the
American continent's two most famous off-road competitions - came
in 1977 when Franck Vessels steered a BFGoodrich Radial All-Terrain
T/A-equipped pick-up to a Baja 500/Baja 1000 double whammy.
Last November, BFGoodrich notched up its 25th Baja 1000 triumph,
making it the legendary event's most successful tyre brand. That
win went to Andy and Scott McMillin in an 850hp Ford F-150 running
on BFGoodrich Baja T/A KR tyres after a 700-mile thrash over the
track trails of the Mexican peninsula. Eight BFGoodrich runners
finished inside the top 10, while BFGoodrich took 14 class wins in
Since the 1970s, BFGoodrich tyres have secured more than 70
outright wins in the SCORE Off-Road championship.
