Roger Norman Violates Mexican Federal Law, fined in recent 50th Baja 1000


By: Gary Newsome, Ensenada, B.C., Mexico

Roger Norman, the responsible butthead of the last edition of the Baja 1000, the 50th version, has been fined by the Federal Environmental Protection Agency of the Republic of Mexico, for crossing a Nature Protection Area without authorization, reported Alfonso Blancafort Camarena, representative of the Environmental Protection Agency.

Blancafort Camarena said he was not aware of the amount of the fine as it is still in process at PROFEPA, but due to the fact this is a reincidence by Score International, the criteria for a fine will be the most severe under the law. The company Roger Norman is responsible for, 'SCORE-International' is seeking an injunction against the fine and this is under legal review, said the representative. 

He stressed that Roger Norman and SCORE International, has constantly violated the environmental regulations and in none of its races where it was required to have federal authorization has it complied with the requirements for an environmental impact report and the permits to cross the protected areas. 

In the 50 years in which these races have been held, SCORE has never had federal authorization, said Blancafort Camarena.

The reason for that is very simple. Permission has not been granted, because it has never been requested or filed for on behalf of the racing organization. Such permission is required by law, said the Semarnat official.

Stay Tuned, Roger will be paying this fine out his stupid nose>>>
