Title: Botswana Offroad Races 2017
Post by: Ace Venture on February 05, 2017, 04:47:40 pm
We had a fantastic year of offroad racing last year, it's looking even better this year.

Usually 4 x 50km loops in the Botswana bush, hosted in:
Gaborone
Francistown
Jwaneng
Orapa
Serowe
Maun

The routes are typically on 2 spoor sand roads, with dry riverbeds.

Our 1st race is to be held in Gaborone on the 10th March.

If anyone is interested in coming up for any of the races please let me know.

Us lot from Upington normally go to Jwaneng for the Toy 1000.  Do you have dates for the events?  Would like to do more than 1.  And, other than the 1000, what club and or license requirements will there be?

Toyota 1000 Desert Race is
23-25 June
Jwaneng,Botswana

It is round 3 of the SA Cross Country Championship, so nomal MSA license.

Dates for the other events are being finalized by Botswana Motor Sports, will publish as soon as I get them.
The first  race in Gabs has been confirmed for 10 March.
For theses you will need a letter from MSA, if not MSA then you can get 1 day BMS licenses.
