Live tracking is one thing but how will we know how each you have done, how can we share in the pain and the glory?

not sure how media will cover it day to day. there is a big lack of info at this stage. Have send various questions to the organisers but with no response...  :bueller:

Jip there will be camera crew that capture each day but obviously not live...(not even on Dakar) heard they will try to show highlights each day in Bivouac :thumleft:, being in its first year there's obviously some room for improvement... but this guys not really active on WD's for instance, I do know they're in Cape Town setting up the parking lot for tomorrow, busy loading stuff on trucks to get there..

It's interesting that despite a bit of a disorganised website and media campaign they have loads of prize money and apparently quite a few sponsors. Obviously doing some things right!

It's a shame they claim to be the first rallye in SA - Alex must be smarting at that! Would hope the two can continue to coexist as a bit of a rallye circuit in the future... and I hope Alex manages to pull some sponsorship for Amageza to keep it flourishing.

I'll also be racing through the desert... on a trusty TW200. She's even got wings:


Hopefully the two dates don't coincide next year! Look forward to popping down to race village on the weekend before we leave.

Would love to pop in at the Waterfront and see you all , I see there is quite a few ex Amageza guys taking part Where in the Waterfront is it ?

Its great that Alex and Amageza could open the way for other rallies to follow suit . This is very exciting . :ricky:

But I thought that Namaqua is the first Dakar-style rally in South Africa?
 :pot:

Enjoy it everybody, ride safe, ride fast!
