1st place in maneuverability in MBM 2006 and other results

It is about time that I inform you of our results of Mini Baja Mexico 2006.

As you can see from the title we are very happy for achieving our first ever podium in any test. It is a very nice podium, first place of maneuverability, because we have always had problems with this test. And let me congratulate the team on this achievement and also congratulate the driver that did this feat, Primo (a.k.a. Juan Carlos, Nauj).

Now the next part of the results. We did "relatively well" on the first day of dynamic tests. We got 7th place on the hill climb and pull tests, we got 8th place on acceleration (determines the endurance starting grid). On the Endurance test we finished 10th.

Overall we managed to get ourselves on the top 10 teams, getting to the 9th place. This place is "good", but not near what we were expecting. Got to work harder for the next Baja SAE event.

09 days for MBM 2006

It is just 9 days for Mini Baja Mexico 2006. Like I promised a couple of weeks ago I post here some more  information on the event.

MBM 2006 will take place from Friday November 17 to Sunday November 19. There are two venues for the event, Friday events (static events) will be held on the ITESM Campus Toluca. Saturday and Sunday events (dynamic events) will take place on the skirts of the Nevado de Toluca, specifically on the 18th km of the Toluca-Valle de Bravo Highway. You can find the map to the Saturday and Sunday venue @

 The best day for enjoying a Mini Baja event is on the day of the endurance test (Sunday November 18, 2006). Commonly referred to as "the race" it is a gruesome four hour ride along an off-road track. This event is the one that award the most points on the event. The day begins at 9.30 hrs with the formation of the starting grid, the endurance test begins at 10.30 hrs and finishes at 14.30 hrs, the end of the day is marked by the awards ceremony held at 15.15 hrs.

You can also enjoy the events on the Saturday, this events include the acceleration, hill climb, pull, and maneuverability events. They are good events, but as the cars have two opportunities to each event it can be a long day and a little tiring for the spectators. These events are held throughout the day from 8.30 to 17.00 hrs.

You can find the whole program and more information on the event website @ Mini Baja Mexico 2006.

Well that's all for this post, hope to see you around MBM 2006 rooting for car No. 100, the Coyote from the Universidad Anahuac (tip, it is a red car).

Bound for Rochester...

This past weekend the Baja SAE Anahuac Team officially became the car number 135 for Baja SAE RIT 2007. RIT stands for Rochester Institute of Technology and it is located @ Rochester, New York.

This could be the 13th or 14th competition of the Baja SAE Anahuac Team. I could also become the 3rd international competition we participate in. We are currently working very hard on the design of the new vehicle and hope to start the manufacture on January 2007.

We are very excited for this, although we know it will mean an awful amount of work to do, we know that this events are a great experience!

New visual design

Hey, I've just upgraded my blogger account to blogger beta, and I am trying a new template, hope that you like it! (comments appreciated).

Under a Cardinal-Red sky...

After a 24 years the Saint Louis Cardinals are the 2006 World Champions. Never favorites in the post-season they battled against the tide to play a great World Series. The so called atomic ant, x-factor or the squirrel, David Eckstein is the MVP of the series, who always plays at 110%.

I specially loved game 4 full of emotion.

I loved a sign on the stadium that said:

Hey "Experts", Tigers in how many?

As a New York Yankees fan I am very pleased with the result, let's just say that is the price of eliminating the Yankees.
