2015 Amageza Rallye - Buildup Thread
« on: January 05, 2015, 11:37:37 pm »
The 2015 Amageza Rallye is a GO for launch!

If you can't wait and want to enter NOW, please click on this link: http://www.amageza.com/#!enter-menu/c1sl8, then click on the button above the Motorbike.

Whats changed from last year:
  • The entry system is mostly online. Payment schedule is simple.
  • It's 7 race days.
  • It's more expensive. (see above  :deal:)
  • We will be starting in Kimberley and finishing in Kimberley, via Botswana.
  • You will need 2 liters of drinking water mounted securely on your bike.

Off the top of my head, that's it. Full information available on the website.

Thanks, and as normal, if you have a question, drop me a email from the website. If I need to tell you something urgent, I'll do it via the shop, so make sure you are registered there.  :thumleft:

Finally: We don't have the manpower to post on all the forums. So please, if you need a answer, email us via the website. We cannot answer all the posts.  :3some:

Awesome. Not sure I'm liking the idea of cars but I suppose that's inevitable if you want to grow the event

...we are likely to use the ERTF / Sentinal system for timing and tracking this year...

How does this work in Dakar - does the organisation provide the units?

Edit: And doesn't the ERTF and Sentinel combination replace GPS, ODO and CAP repeater?

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.

 :thumleft:  The ERTF will provide you with waypoints (some will only be shown when you are within a specified radius of the waypoint). It will also tell you when you are exceeding a speed limit (high pitched alarm)... and if you don't reduce speed within a few seconds, the system will log the relevant penalties.
It will record your track realtime and provide the organisation with your total stage time & penalties (if any) as you stop at the stage check point.

The Sentinel provides an alarm when another competitor comes close to you, and also allows for satellite communication from the bike/vehicle to the organisation (If you run out of biltong during a special stage, & need to order a delivery  :eek7: ). There's some super high-tech functions like g-force meters... so Amageza HQ will know if you come to a sudden stop... (T9ER, you must fit a cow proximity alarm  >:D )

IDR, we're negotiating a deal to rent these units... so that we cam provide to each competitor.
You will need to purchase a mounting bracket (which is not super expensive - we'll point you in the right direction) and provide a power point at the bracket.   ...But lets get to this when the ERTF & Sentinel negotiation has been done  ;D

You'll still need your ICO and CAP device (as far as I know) for rally navigation.   :deal:

Any idea of cost? Don't want to get my early entry in for discount just to find out that renting the sentinal will cost as much as the race entry itself

I was reading the Dakar cost somewhere and it was horrific with only a fraction of the deposit refundable.  ::)

That route looks like it has a lot of potential! 3 border crossings not ideal, but luckily those countries are easy to get in and out of (and not too expensive).

Also, 7 days! That is awesome.

Wont make it this year though, but will follow closely!

 . . .and road tax for Bot and Nam, TIPs (Temporary Import Permit), registered road legal vehicle, proof of ownership/letter of usage by bank, etc, all to be paid in cash. Rider/driver license, visas for whom it applies.
Take a writing pen with to complete the paper work.
This above is required for normal border crossings.( as per 2014 crossings)
It will be a good idea if Amageza organizers does all this through a "border agent" for everybody involved.
It could be that in some cases, visas should be applied for, before the event.
I trust all these issues will be addressed by the Amageza organizers at a later stage.
Yippy! here we go !
