Programme, costs etc?

HI
Program and costs will only be finalised sometime around beginning July. Just want to get some more of the important things sorted at Tankwa as not all routes are not yet final. For now we have two BC (Quaggas Kloof) back to back races to sort 16/17 June before heading back to Tankwa before we can finalise Regulations.

Intended program (Provisional)
22 Sept Race section 1 includes Time Trail & for overall score.
23 Sept Race section 2 Marathon day
24 Sept Race section 3

Bike classes will be kept simple however we are in consultation with others first.
I can mention there will be no social class & minimum age is 16  Also Competitors would have had to completed at least one race beforehand.

regards

Offroad2, what type of race would that 'beforehand' have to be?

Post by: Offroad2 on May 18, 2017, 11:17:26 am
Hi Cracker,
Having participated in MSA Off-Road, Enduro or Rally races or otherwise convince the committee that one is capable. We respect all however this is race where some experience & common sense is required.

Tx Offroad2.

This type of racing appeals to me lots - There's an outside chance I might get to this one - just gotta rope in some willing pit-crew.

I can hear them running as I type ..................  ::)

PhotoPhuket insists on something like a $400 subscription for third party display.

People that are pro bloggers are stuffed, all the old RR's on he site is stuffed - as a matter of fact, you can't even download your own pics from them without said subscription.

People are up in arms at being held ransom, but that is it - apparently it is somewhere in there 20 000 word T&C's that you accepted.  :o

Ok lekke Clive, you guys were @ KoŽs? Seems like there were less off-roads than previously. Will the navigation for Tankwa be with GPS or Roadbook? Thinking of doing it with the 300..

Post by: Offroad2 on July 10, 2017, 04:41:49 pm
Hi Dewald,

Went to Koes to join our friends that support racing down south - was great fun!

WCOC still does series of six Off-Roads, two of which are back to back races to reduce away dates ie four dates but six races. Next and last two races (9/10 Sept) are Ceres Koue Bokkeveld back to back.

Tankwa is cross country, in short (provisional)
Classes bikes 200 2T / 250 4T,  Open bikes, Big bore, Rally & quads unlimited cc
Plastic bikes / quads will be GPS - severe dangers will be marked.
Rally will be road book
Day 1  - Time Trial + short sprint.
Day 2 - Main Race section
Day 3 - Race Section 3 (should finish around lunch.

We are almost done with routes and soon hope to submit regulations to MSA for approval.

You can try http://imgur.com/ (blegh) ,  and www.flickr.com has a 1 TB limit, but more than sufficient for you.

http://cloudinary.com/ is limited to 75,000  images, and you can transfer your blocked images with  https://fixphotobucket.com/  (one at a time)
