Open to Motorcycles, UTV’s, cars and a non-racing Adventure Raid Class, the Sonora Rally is a true Dakar style adventure and a five day navigation race that provides to competitors a big cross-country challenge based on navigation skills and off-road racing experience. For this particular year, stakes are even higher, with some of the best racers in the world being part of the the event, a whole new set of stages that went from San Luis Río Colorado to Rocky Point and back and demanding terrain and weather conditions. And this is only the beginning.  ​

Planning Ahead

During the whole week we planned ahead every single day in order to beat the time the racers would be in the right spots to be filmed. It totally was a rally for the film crew as well, and in order to be at the right place, days began pretty early in the morning, crew units already knew where they had to be and cinematographer Jesus Meneses was on the helicopter filming from up there during the entire week.

A Journey Through
the Sonoran Desert

Each day, by the time the stage was over, the film crew returned to the meeting point at the bivouac. The crew had its own shiftpod where footage was backed up and the editor started working on that day’s footage, putting together the daily video for that particular stage.

You really must experience this rally in order to fully understand the challenge and the enriching exchange with a team of talented people that strive for putting together such an adventure.

 

3 different crew units

 We split to cover more terrain and different sceneries, planning ahead through each day to be on the right place and the right time, waiting on the racers to come at full speed in order to be captured by the lens.
