2015 Amageza Rally - Official WD Thread
« on: August 29, 2015, 01:08:06 am »
WELCOME to the AMAGEZA 2015 - Official Wild Dog Thread.

Amageza 2015 Official Sponsors are


This is where you will get a lot of the up-to-the-second information on the race and the competitors as it become available from the many other internet sources and members on this forum.

This is a continuation of the Amageza 2015 Buildup Thread (click here), which has been locked at 01h00 on the morning of scrutineering.

Please feel free to post any information, links, questions, comments about the Amageza Rally right here. Don't be shy to contribute - there are NO STUPID QUESTIONS, and we would love to hear from friends and family following the competitors.  :deal:  :thumleft:

Help us to make this thread the Amageza Bush Telegraph with your contributions - I know it will be followed by many of the riders themselves when they can.

A few useful links

- Official Amageza site www.amageza.com
- Live Tracking https://data.africanstuff.co.za/raceview/race/racemap/amageza-2015/
- Amageza on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/amageza.rallye?fref=ts

Please add you links to this thread so we can follow all the stories as they develop.

As far as I am currently aware, scrutineering begins in a few hours, and the 1st stage commences tomorrow, the 30th August.
Here is the broad itinerary:


To the riders from all of us: Congratulations! You made it to the start! :thumleft:
Ride safely, look out for one another, and have a blast!  :ricky:  :ricky:  :ricky:

You have to be absolutely smashed to have the guts to attempt it,
But perfectly sober to achieve any success!

Courtesy from Grizz: In this day and age religion is often frowned upon, but I have met some of the most amazing people from various religions over time.
From Buddhists to Sikhs, through Muslims and Christians and everything in between, there are many good people out there and if you do not allow yourself to be swayed by petulant religious opinion, the world is an awesome place with the odd idiot in between trying to make it rubbish for others.
