I got my MSA license and Race number today.
Just thinking about about the 1st race gives me the jitters! I cant wait :ricky:


Which MSA license did you get by the way? I was shopping around on their website and there's all these categories... Not too sure which license is sufficient.
Minxy, if you plan to do the Amageza 2015 , things could be complicated as it could involve a (international)/national/club licence, the regs will state what the requirements will be. Check the Amageza 2015 regs , is it available yet ? Alex should be contacted for that info.
For GOC races , I think a club licence is a minimum requirement. Check out their regs.

I spoke to Alexander on Facebook and he said a MSA club license is fine for Amageza, I'll be getting it soon.

I see that the entries for the 1st race have opened at last but I am still waiting for my username and password before I can enter. ???

Phone GOC on 012 333 1852 and ask for help. I had to jump through a few hoops to get it sorted and their telephonic advice didn't work ................

Try this : - Username = first initial plus surname, all small letters eg> Peter Oes would be ...............  >:D >:D

Password: - 12345a for all

If they ever ask for fav colour, answer = blue

maybe  ::)

Oh, and enjoy filling in the documentation - you gonna love it   :lamer: ::) :deal: :'(

OK so I have entered and paid for the 1st race.
Who else is doing the 1st race?
I have read somewhere that the bikes will have to be pushed  while in the pit area but the regs for Saturday don't say anything about this. Does anyone here know anything about it?

That is way to fast for me. If I can do 50% of his pace I will be happy.

How did you guys make your medical boards? Could it be on a white paper that is laminated or should it be something stiffer? How or where do you carry it? Can it be folded up?

I bought one from WOA in Randburg - was cheap and as far as I remember Wayne also has MSA medical kits for sale.

Enjoy the first race, Gee S, you'll have a head start on the rest of us, come the 2nd round  :thumleft: :thumleft:

Print a big red + on an A4 and a big green OK on another piece, put them back to back and laminate them, works 100% and can be folded  :thumleft:

Use a permanent marker on a white cloth 300 x 300mm fold it up into your medical aid kit, works better to use two pieces (one for each side) and sew them together afterwards.

I spray painted a red cross and green "ok" on a old white pillow cover which is stashed in a plastic bag so deep in my bumbag that it will most properly take me a day to find. It is 1 of those requirements for racing which I don't think anybody ever used. Don't invest bucks in getting it. I am yet to find 2 okes going to each other saying "check my mediese sign".

Are 2Ts really that bad on fuel?

My 450 is good for about 140kms on a tank - about 8 or 9 litres - 2 laps easy

Saying that, my KDX chomps fuel - I dunno how much but I'm always surprised when I look into an empty tank  ::)
What 450 are you on a DR?  my son gets just under 70 on his WR
Sl

close - a KLX

Kepp your eyes open for a young gun, bare-chested, surrounded by pit girls ................................. that won't be me  :biggrin:
Kobus Jonk used to race a KLX,, ran top 5 at GOC's with it
Slow down there old man. Was Kobus not running a KXF?

Thanks guys, I laminated my board, but I am sure it won't look good for long after being folded. I like the idea of making one on cloth that can fold up nice and small. SWAMBO will make me one for the next race

I suppose they won't let you race if they check and you don't have it.
What would be a good tyre pressure to run front and rear. Is it very rocky at Bronkhorstspruit?

This is a new place abt bronkies, we aint raced here before,, to be safe run 1 bar, even better coat your tube in grease,, that stops impact punctures
