Thanks everyone! :thumleft:

Eish that Springbokkie. I'm keen to but I don't know if it still has any fight left after years of being left all alone. Will have to give it a test run and see how she goes. Or maybe I should just ask someone nicely if they have a spare 450RR lying around somewhere.... :deal: ;D

One thing for sure: This time the plan is to actually do some preparation and a spot of training.  :P

Although the guidelines are rather strict, Alexander has always been accommodating to riders who have the skill and experience to enter.

They want to discourage the weekend warrior thinking this might just be a tough outride.

At the end of the day its up to the individual to convince Alexander of his ability to finish / not become a major liability to the rally. I for one will be taking training very seriously this year because I think this next Amageza is going to be tougher than last year, and last year by all accounts was brutal.

Amageza 2016 will be a serious one , BB.
One thing that is going to important to all , all vehicles partaking  will have to road legal for ZA , Nam , etc. ? (SADEC countries legal ?)
It will have to be totally road legal eg. working hooters ( not excuses for hooters), indicators, legal number plates will again be an issue for it could happen that non-legal plates could be an issue with the eg. road cops in eg. Nam, etc. We will see what the regs will require.
Lets hope it will be addressed with no misunderstanding to all.

Does anyone know how many entries we have so far? :)


Check this out from www.dakar.com

2016-03-16


DAKAR CHALLENGE: YOUTH TO TAKE CENTER STAGE


Before knowing what the route of the 2017 Dakar will be, two dates are already confirmed on the Dakar Challenge calendar. On the Sonora Rally in Mexico, then on the Merzouga Rally in Morocco, the most promising riders in rally-raid will compete to win their entry for next year's edition of the Dakar. In South Africa, the victor of the Dakar Challenge in the Amageza Rally will win entry for the 2018 Dakar.

Sonora Rally: 3-7 April 2016

The venue demands respect. Simply said, at 320,000km², Sonora is the largest expanse of desert in North America, slightly more than the surface area of Italy! The first edition of the rally, from 3-7 April, 2016, will see the riders and teams take on an array of different terrains over four stages with priority given to off-track sectors. Buoyed by rally-raid regulars like Darren Skilton and Scott Whitney, the Sonora Rally takes and even extends the principles of the Cortez Rally, won in 2015 by Quinn Cody (9th on the 2011 Dakar). Most importantly, it emphasizes discovery and perfecting navigation: only a road-book and the most basic GPS will be permitted for the riders to find their way. And a “Malles Moto” (“bike trunk”) system will be implemented for those who want to ride without assistance. Under these conditions, the selection for the Dakar Challenge will without a doubt reveal which riders are capable to take on the ultimate test.
Information and registration: www.sonorarally.com

Merzouga Rally: 21-27 May 2016
For a long time the name has rung like the call to an adventure, and the event is already a reference in the rally-raid world. The list of past winners of the Merzouga Rally includes Helder Rodrigues, Sam Sunderland and Alessandro Botturi. And for edition 7, Marc Coma will be the Sporting Director of the Moroccan round of the Dakar Series. The Spaniard actually wants to create a learning lab with the Merzouga. Over six days of competition, the riders, most of whom come from enduro or motocross will face the difficulties and charms of the discipline: scaling dunes, the reading and interpretation of a road-book, managing the length of the stages, etc… With a field including Dakar veterans and up and coming riders attracted by new terrains, the formula will allow for converting the young talents.
Information and registration: www.merzougarally.com

Amageza Rally: November 5 - 12 2016

South Africa is one of the nations with a strong link to the Dakar… and not just since the victory of Giniel De Villiers in 2009. Alfie Cox, for example, had already been among the front-runners in the motorcycle category in the years after the millennium, while veteran observers will remember the voyage that took the rally all the way to Cape Town in 1992. It is perhaps in this memory that the South African rally-raid community draws on in its intense activity and interest for the Dakar. A generation is already beginning to settle in the car category, with Leeroy Poulter (5th on the Dakar in 2016) and Mark Corbett (18th), and in the quad category, Brian Baragwanath (3rd). And the Amageza Rally sets up as the ideal terrain for South African, Namibian and Angolan riders and drivers, who are adding to the ranks of the representatives of the region in the future, to show their stuff. The seven days of scheduled competition offers a range of terrains similar to those found on the Dakar in South America: dunes, rocky tracks, river crossings, etc. As for navigation, their abilities will be particularly tested in the bush. Given the positioning of the Amageza on the calendar, the winner of the Dakar Challenge will win his entry for the 2018 edition of the Dakar.

Congratulations everyone. The Amageza is now officially on the international rally map! :hello2: :hello2: :hello2: :hello2:

Best you check with him - I've already been informed that I can't enter  :(
Don't let fear hold you back ..... take it with you!
