I'm also new to it but look up GXCC on Facebook, used to be GOC. If you only end up doing one race (in the WOW class), it will cost as little as 600 rand for annual club fee, entry and license

Really affordable and hassle free for people wanting to try it out

I'm gonna do them but will miss the first race - gonna be doing a Mountain Madalas ride that weekend.

Which, incidentally, is something you should try, if the Amageza and Baja is out of reach.  There's 2 more Madalas rides this year, so no excuse  >:D

I'm expecting the GXCC to be very good this year  :thumleft:

Thanks Cracker. I need to do a lot of training before attempting anything with the word "mountain" in it. I've done a grand total of one proper off-road ride in the last 14 months so I am going to kak off big time

I have my club membership and paid for my licence. Just waiting my number now

Your license is done online, you should get a printed copy immediately - no cards anymore. Just an A4 sheet that should last about 5 minutes in your wallet.

After getting your license number, you'll need to phone Carmen at MSA directly, she'll give you an actual race number.

Race entries - used to be 2 weeks before an event.

BTW, I joined GXCC as my club for the year - should hopefully be sent all the important info.

Sounds like fun guys. Will these still be flat taps or a bit slower than the old GOC's?

I had a training session with Louwrens Mahoney (who's taken over the GOC's) this past December. He told me he wants to hopefully make the track more twisty to keep the speeds down a bit, but also not too technically challenging. I guess we'll just have to see for ourselves...
