27 Hours to La Paz is a documentary about the first Baja 1000 (at the time called the NORRA Mexican 1000 Rally). It’s an event that was challenged by the best drivers in the world, many Europeans flew in for the race and the best off-road drivers in the USA competed with them.
The race length in 1967 was 849 miles (1,366 kms) and the finish line was in La Paz, Baja California Sur. The overall winning time was 27 hours and 38 minutes, it was set by Vic Wilson and Ted Mangels while driving a heavily modified Meyers Manx buggy.
