WHAT IS BAJA RACING?

Baja Racing is an off-road motor sport with drivers often operating buggies.

Duff Klaber has been part of the sport through Cornell University’s Baja Racing Team since he was a freshman.

“It’s one person in an off-road buggy. We can race in some pretty rough terrain. The competitions consist of a couple shorter events that are timed and then a four-hour endurance race where we race wheel to wheel against a hundred other schools at once,” Duff said.

Cornell’s team is building its 17th car. Members of the team consist of students, including many studying engineering.

USING RADIOS IN BAJA RACING

The team ordered Midland’s AVPH2 Closed Face Helmet Headset Kit. Duff said this piece of equipment is imperative to the team’s success during a race.

“We use the radios during endurance races. That is four hours with the driver out on the track. We need to make fuel stops, tell them what position they are in so we’re in radio contact with the drivers. This way they can hear and talk to us while driving."

Like many things, Duff said two-way communication has drastically evolved over the years. He said this has made a difference in the way they race.

“In the past we’ve only communicated with drivers using signs in the pit lane and signals, or something else. It’s crucial to be in constant communication with them.”
