Dear Baja teams,


The only winter Baja competition in Canada is back at Université Laval for its 10th edition! Join us for the Épreuve du Nord on February 6th and 7th 2015! Last year, more than 28 Bajas from Québec, Ontario and the United States took part in the competition! Come to demonstrate you team’s skills by confronting the snowy and icy course!


Here is what to expect for the 10th edition of the Épreuve du Nord :



Teams are asked to arrive on Friday morning for inspection. Make sure the vehicle has:

- Passed Tech 2010 or sooner
- SFI rated 2010 or sooner seat belts
- Snell approved helmet
- Working brakes (static check)
- Working brake light
- Two working kill switches
- Proper powertrain guards
- Governor set at 3800 rpm


The official 2015 rules will be available soon!



Two qualifying events will be held simultaneously on Friday 6th for maximum action. These qualification events will allow each team to demonstrate its potential and its driver’s skills. Once again this year, the best performances will be rewarded as the griding for the final event is based on the results of the qualifications.


Soirée du Nord

This year, be prepared for a more interesting evening that will allow teams to interact and relax before the endurance race. We will also be announcing the results of the qualifications!


The race

A two hours endurance race where all Baja cars will battle in the snow and ice to bring home trophy and glory will conclude the event. The track will still be hosted on Université Laval’s Grand Axe, with more features and challenges to test the limits of your Baja. This is a unique opportunity to prepare your team for the upcoming competitions and to live a memorable racing weekend!


To register, please send an e-mail to" rel="nofollow - . We will send you all the information and documentation that you need. In order to make it possible for as many teams as possible to compete, the registration is totally free. Every team can register as many cars as they want as long as they meet the safety rules. Teams are encouraged to compete with more than one Baja!
