Irvine, Calif (March 8, 2011)—Wide Open Excursions, the adrenaline-filled off-road driving adventure provider, is pleased to announce that it has expanded its operations in Cabo San Lucas Mexico and has opened a new facility there.

Partners R. Brent Fenimore, Robert J. Smith, and Fred M. Blum, who recently acquired the company, have expanded southern operations into two additional buildings totaling 506 square meters (5546 square feet). The first contains offices, a conference area, retail apparel sales area, client reception area with video presentation, and a full service bar for refreshments.

Behind the offices is a courtyard with a ‘palapa’ (shade covering with natural bamboo roof) and built-in seating, video presentation area, outdoor kitchen with barbeque and fireplace, a client locker room with showers, and restrooms.

The attached new building contains the mechanical shop to maintain the Baja Challenge tour cars and contains a vehicle showroom for orientation, a locker room with showers, MIG and heli-arc welding stations, mechanical repair stations, and a wash bay for final preparation of the cars prior to departing on the off-road excursions.

Both buildings have been totally remodeled. The office building was a mere shell in December 2009 and has been completely rebuilt and refurbished. The courtyard, bar, kitchen, and appointments were completed in time for the grand opening, which occurred last week. The mechanical shop was developed from the ground up beginning in August 2010 and will be completed by March 15.

“We are excited about our new Wide Open offerings and expansion in the Cabo San Lucas market. It has been refreshing to work with the local business owners and resort hotels to incorporate their products and services into our expanded offerings” said Brent Fenimore, Partner and Managing Director for Wide Open Excursions. “This is an exciting time for the business community in Cabo San Lucas as the tourist industry shows strong signs of recovery and growth for Cabo San Lucas as a vacation destination.”

Wide Open Excursions also maintains its operations in Ensenada, Mexico and is expanding its operations in the U.S. to include cooperative agreements with independent off-road adventure companies in several states.

About Wide Open Excursions
Since 1997, WIDE OPEN Excursions has provided more than 16,000 guests and corporate clients with the world’s most unique and adrenaline-filled adventure opportunity. Their vision: To share the joy of high-performance off-road driving and the unspoiled beauty of the Baja peninsula and Nevada’s Great Basin, which were previously accessible only for the adventurous lucky few.  In 2011, Wide Open Excursions will expand into three new territories throughout the United States.

Much more than a driving school or follow the leader tour, the WIDE OPEN experience pushes the envelope of an adventure-based vacation. Their Baja Challenge (BC) cars are specifically designed to provide guests with the safety and performance of a desert racer, yet are easy enough for anyone to drive.

Wide Open Racing, the competition division of Wide Open Excursions, provides “arrive and drive” race seats in the same off-road race cars for amateurs and professionals looking to compete in off-road races. The Team Wide Open corporate car finished third in the Class 1 category at the Score Tecate Baja 1000 last month—a remarkable feat considering it was the only four-cylinder powered car in the class. They also finished fourth in Class 1 last June in the famous Baja 500.

About Casa Hogar
On February 6, 2008 the first boy was received at Casa Hogar, Joaquin was just 6 years. In less than 3 months we had 16 boys. Joaquin was placed back into his family after living with us for about a year. He now is living with his grand parents, we consider that a success.

We have been in operation for a 3 years and currently have 28 boys living with us.  Those boys are from 7 to 15 years old.  Our maximum capacity is 60.  Unfortunately our community will always have children that need our help.  Our ability to fill the house is limited only by funding. They are typical growing boys, going to school, playing sports, learning about life and ultimately becoming young men ready to enter a society and become productive citizens.

Please feel free to contact us if you would like to help make our mission a success.President, Casa Hogar de Cabo San Lucas, BCS Mexico
