Cracker, we have attended every GOC since the begining of time except for 2014

Congratulations. Now can we get back to the original question?  :pot:

I also don't have an issue with the licenses, I just want clarity. What will you be riding on?
I am looking for a WR450 but I might have to do the first few on a KTM 300 EXC.

Wats fout met 'n 300?? Soos dinge nou loop gaan ek dit op 'n 230 doen

Niks fout met die 300 nie behalwe dat dit nie meer myne is nie. My skoonseun het my mal gemaak met sy aanhoudende gekerm dat ek die 300 aan hom moet verkoop want ek het hom amper nooit meer gery nie. Ek het toe die bike aan hom verkoop en nou sit ek met my vinger in my agterent. >:(

Ek soek n WR 450 vir Amageza en sal dan maar die GOC ook met hom doen.

And what was the question?  how to go about it and who's riding them?  that was answered in the second post.

I was hoping to get an idea of who'd be doing GOC and have a thread where people can get advice and support, not to start a debate about the impact of licenses

Ahh ok,, fair enough, what exactly would you like to know?  as to the initial question, join the GOC club, you get a discount on the entry fee and a 15% discount at EMD Racing, the format will be changing this year(so they say) to be slightly more tech than previous years but wit the races being more or less in the same places I rate they will be the same as the old GOC's, starting orders this year will possibly be based on championship finishes from last year as I aint seen anything about a seeding event, 3 laps of 60k's or less and if the loop drops below 50 normally 4 laps,, expect to be tired after the events and make sure you have a decent pit crew!

I joined GOC today. I emailed the application form and proof of payment early this morning and received the approval email with my membership number by 10:00. Quick and painless. :thumleft:

Have any of you applied for the MSA license yet and category did you get? I registered for their online licensing this morning. The online application process is straight forward and quick. I went through the whole process but did not buy the license as I am not sure whether a club license will be good enough for the border crossings during the Amageza.
Any suggestions from the boffins?

A Club licence is all you require unless you want to compete in the Regional championship  :thumleft:
You can still race all regionals under a club licence in the Silver class, you just won't qualify for regional points. Club is fine for Amageza as well.
Present bikes: BETA 300RR, KTM 690, Yamaha WR250F

I doubt I'll have a bike by then.  Will happily pit for you.
The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.

Sub.. Sounds like a good idea to do some of these again.
If in doubt, flat out.

Pull in! I've just done my budget and I might not make the first race. The december holiday hangover is strong this year  :lol8:

I've also stuffed my kit on Amageza. Need new riding pants and boots so there is a lot of money to be spent before I can go racing

Ek kan ook hier en daar help met pit, het al n klompie agter die rug... in terme van pit crew, nie ry nie.

Keep in mind:

Gazebo
Enviro mat
Fire extinguisher
Toolbox

Cool drinks - plenty of them!!!!

You'll be extrememly dehydrated when you finish, drink lots of coolies before your first beer. Otherwise you'll finish a 6-pack in 10 minutes, it'll go to your head and you'll drive home like a knob.

If you're a weekend warrior like me, don't be disappointed with a DNF or 2 when you start racing, it took me a couple of races to do all 3 laps and the first time I did it I was nearly dead from exhaustion.

I'll be missing the first race coz of doctor's orders but hopefully will be there for the second and subsequent races - can't wait really, I enjoyed them far more than the Amageza but maybe that's because I was on a proper bike.

Howsit Guys,

I quite keen to do an event (or 2) this year, you think it is doable on an X-Challenge?

I'm quite keen to pitch at the 1st event and see how things play out.

Regards.
