The Most Horrifying Auto Racetracks In The World

9. Baja 1000


Race cars are not the only vehicles to take on this track. There are races for bikes, trucks, and buggies on this course in Mexico’s Baja Peninsula. The Baja 1000 is a rally race ranging from 600 to 900 miles, consisting of obstacles that add challenge and danger. Spectators are known to surprise drivers by setting up hidden traps and jumps, and they are forced to maneuver around barriers. There was even a nine-day kidnapping of a driver by ex-police in 2008. Not only that, societal threats like gang raids exist and have been the cause of deaths. This popular event has been attracting competitors and spectators since 1967.
