Guys,

Its very difficult for me to keep track on all the forums on posts regarding the 2013 Amageza. The best will be to make sure you read the rules carefully. Not all the rules were applied from the MSA and FIM. Only read those I have indicated as important.

Some of the questions are being addressed on the Amageza forum. The Amageza forum is for entrants only. As you pay, you are registered and have access to this information.

Best bet to me is sharing a service crew - 1 crew to 4 bikes should keep the costs down

Just check the rules carefully, I am sure I read somewhere that there is a max munber of bikes that a service crew can attend to, it was 1 or 2 bikes IMO.. dunno, I must find where i got that from. so many rules.

Another question might be the size allowances for the "trommel" that will be transported for you..

7.   Transport for one trunk.This trunk may not exceed L:800mm x H:340mm x W:340mm

All I could find on the matter.

Assistance Crew:
1.   Each competitor is allowed two assistance crew members.
2.   Costs per assistance crew team is R 9 000. This includes 2 crew members, and one four wheeled vehicle.
3.   A team is allowed a maximum of 3 crew teams if more than 3 riders are being serviced.


So you have to basically use the right terminology, and it depends on how you read this as it is confusing. What does it mean when he says " a team is allowed a max of 3 crew teams'.. the way i read it is you can have 2 people servicing a bike, if you are a team you can have more than 3 riders but max 3 crew teams, so 6 crew.?????  a crew is 2 service per 1 rider, so is a team max 3 crew if more than 3 riders are being serviced. - dunno.

So if you team up with someone as 2 riders or 3 riders you can share a crew, as I see it, if you are more than 3 people you can add an extra service member and have a team.

OR

every rider has 2 crew, max 3 crews per 'team'

The Supplied GPS:

Does it need a power supply?  If so: hella, JIS, DIN or just a connector block? How far from the unit must the supply be?
Will it have a cradle that required fitment before the time?
How much space is required for the unit? The bikes using handle bar mounted roudbooks will already be struggling for space.

Apparently the requirements for the GPS are on the Amageza forum which you can access once you have made the 1st payment...

Anybody knows what an environmental mat is and where you get it? I thought it might be an environmentally sustainable grass mat...

It is a mat normally with some sort of rubber backing that you use to refill/ do oil changes etc on, thereby avoiding spillages onto the ground/ environment.

EDIT: Can get from most bike shops but the good ones are expensive, you can probably make something for way less money.

an envoronmental mat is as complicated as you want to make it.. I went to a hardware store and bought builders plastic.. done.

I use that at my boys MAS events and it works well.. gooi a half brick on each corner or if there are no halfbricks lying around i just use tent pegs.

If you really want to get fancy you can buy those 'dirttrapper' mats, as they have a rubber bottom.

OK, so more or less like using the rubber mats from the bakkie to put the Axo's on in the old days.  But that was to avoid standing in the thorns.  Now its to avoid killing the thorns.

A team is only allowed a max of 3 support crew teams. So you can have three riders in a team, with each his own support crew.

But there is no max number of riders per crew. One crew can service the bikes of 10 riders if they can. As long as there is only two members per crew.

Just btw:
If the minimum amount of registration fee's are not received by cut-off next Monday, 3 December 2012, the event will be cancelled and all monies refunded.  :'(

Yebo, that's precisely why I haven't entered yet, I thought I'd wait till the new year after approaching sponsors.

Btw, what's the min amount of entries?
Present bikes: BETA 300RR, KTM 690, Yamaha WR250F
