Chris Western had a dream – to take the first Australian built class one to the Baja 1000 and in 2014 he will see this dream become reality.

The world renowned event runs from Ensenada to La Paz in Mexico and Chris is facing the event from the seat of his Element Prodigy – with a six Lightforce Venom and four LED180s lighting the way!

As Chris Western explains “The Baja 1000 is a different ball game as far as driving lights go, given that over 50% of the race is at night.”

“We believe that the Venom product will be perfect for what we need in Mexico and beyond. We are very happy we can take an Australian branded product over to the USA and Mexico. It is perfect really, a lot of years of R & D have gone into this light and the fact we can use it in one of the most Extreme situations you can get is pretty cool.”

Racing the National Off Road circuit here in Australia for the last eight years, three time class champion Chris Western will become the first Australian to compete in an Australian built off road buggy and drive solo in this year’s Score International Baja 1000.

The LightForce range of products have been specifically designed to thrive in the harshest of conditions and being able to prove this on the world stage is an opportunity that we certainly couldn’t pass up! We look forward to this new partnership with Chris.
