Here are some statements made by attendees from previous years:

-“I just spent the last 2 days sleeping and recovering from Bajafest. Wow, was its amazing. It was so much fun meeting everyone from the forum and racing together. Big thanks to Rob for putting together a great event, a wonderful Baja friendly facility and the warm hospitality that he extends to all.”

-“the event at hostile race park in New York was a great weekend. I have not raced in a while but that weekend brought the spirit back. Look forward to next year will make the trip from va. again loved it thanks rob to you and your staff and family. A++++++ also to everyone i met. ”

-Re: Oval racing. “IMO, it was the Cats Meow of the event as far as racing goes. I think one of the reasons I liked it so much was that its a racing event that is accessible to everyone of all skills. Its as simple or as complex as the driver wants it to be. No special upgrades needed to go out on the track and have fun. The oval track at Hostile Race Park is something that I hope takes off for him as a National event. I’m also hoping that other tracks follow his lead and incorporate an oval into their curriculum. Great forward thinking on your track design Rob! ”

-“Thanx to Rob from Hostile for doing such an awesome job. He never stopped the whole weekend and is in desperate need of sleep! lol

Also thanx to all the sponsors! HPI, Turtle racing, Phatdad and Fast Eddy to name a few. I’ve been to tons of races and I’ve never seen so much merchandise given away. everyone left with hands full of parts!!! ”

-“This weekend felt like a week long vacation! I haven’t felt this relaxed in a LOOOOONG TIME! Thanks to all for the awesome welcome and amazing support! It was a true honor to be in such good company. So many interesting people with so much to learn too…. Everybody was so nice! The stories were freakin’ hilarious! One BIG Happy BAJA Family! ”

-“Bajafest was simply awesome. Great job Rob. I wish we could do it again next weekend. What a great bunch of guys, everyone was helpful and willing to give any information. I have been in the hobby for many years, including racing nitro and bajafest was the best because of the relaxed atmosphere. Thanks to everyone that contributed to the fest and I would like to personally thank Turtle, PB, JR for the awesome parts and info they provided and of course Rob.”
