Rplate® Survives Endurance Test in 34th SCORE International San Felipe 250 Baja Race
May 18, 2021
GRANITE BAY, Calif., May 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — ReviverMX, Inc., developer of the world’s first digital license plate (DLP), has announced that their popular Rplate® recently survived an endurance off-road test in the 34th Annual SCORE San Felipe 250. The race was held Saturday, April 17th in San Felipe, Baja California, Mexico. The SCORE International race organization is world famous for its granddaddy of all desert races, the Baja 1000, which is the world’s oldest, longest, and most continuously held desert race.
Reviver’s Rplate was mounted to a Class 5/1600 1969 VW Baja Bug racing for The Negrete Boys Racing Team driven by Larry Negrete Jr., Larry Negrete Sr. and Ernie Negrete of San Diego, CA. Jose Garcia, Retail Marketing Manager for Galpin Motors and Navigator who rode shotgun throughout the race said, “The Negrete Boys Racing Team and I were excited to put the Rplate to the ultimate driving test in the most unforgiving desert terrain known anywhere on the planet. We’re impressed that it survived the race and the conditions that Baja brings.” The race is 251 miles of rock washes, fine silt, deep sand, steep climbs and 4-foot whoops that challenged vehicle, crew, and the Rplate’s capabilities under the most extreme conditions.
“Over the course of the race the Rplate survived 6 – 8 direct impacts from other race vehicles and all that Mexico’s beastly Baja desert had to throw at it – mostly sharp rocks and abrasive deep sand. In the end, the plate held its image and its electronics remained fully functional,” Garcia said. As one of the three navigators on the team, Garcia helped keep the vehicle on course to a hard-earned second-place win. “This was a great test for our Rplate under circumstances it was never designed for,” said Neville Boston, Founder & CSO for Reviver TM. “We thoroughly test our plates for extreme heat and cold, jarring and for impact. None of our tests could match this real-world-torture test; it has demonstrated just how rugged Rplates are.” Boston also said, “The credit goes to our product design team for designing the Rplate to endure, and to the Negrete Boys Racing team for winning second place against such rugged competition.” By comparison, the typical highways, roads and parking lots most Rplate’s frequent could never serve up such brutal treatment.
