What's the deal with the Namibia invitational in Oct?  Where does it take place, format, etc.  I love to do the WCOC events (after suffering through Redelinhuys once) and will do the Tankwa rally.  The races are just a fair distance from Upington, so if the Namibia one is within reach, I would like to do it.

HI Bill,

Namibia is Oranjemund Desert 300 - done the last two years and can say there were excellent races, TT day one & race day two, hard pack, whoops, pans and best of all great dunes. Good races, testing & good value for money  - 1st weekend OCT

So any other dogs entered for the season opener at Heuningneskloof on Sat? Anyone maybe doing it on Ralle bikes as prep for Baja?

With my Baja plans having gone up in flames, I decided to console myself with an entry to this ride instead.
Going to be piloting the new WR250F so that'll be something new as I've never raced a 4T before. Looking forward to it  :thumleft:

PRG se 150 jaar viering het 'n solid stok voor my planne gesteek.
Wou dit saam met my seun doen.

You oaks will see me in the starting line up.  First race of he season ...yay!  Forecasted 27 degrees C which is peachy weather. 
Laps are about 50 kays, so winners standard is 4 laps in 3 hours to make up the 200 kays. 
Race setters are saying bit of riverbed, bit of technical, bit of fast - sounds great! 
Also apparently Hamburger Hill in reverse?  This is the hill that featured in the Caledon National, and also some regionals.  Should be easier downhill, except for that last zig zag right at the bottom.  This would be the wrong place to snatch the front brake ...! 
if you are riding past, then why not pop in for a look?  the turnoff to the farm is 10kays after Caledon, on the N2.  ie go past Caledon due east on the N2;  look for turn off to the right (south).  It should be marked with with day glo orange 150 x 100mm stickers.
Technically minded people can get the GPS co-ordinates off the poster at the beginning of this thread. 
Last minute dot com riders can buy a one-day licence for this race - think you might have to attend to admin today, rather than 10 min before the start tomorrow.

Stay with the front runners - less dust  :deal:
All your chinas (GJ, Kobie etc.) don't ride there 'cos they are fast, they ride there 'cos they want to avoid the dust.  :imaposer:

At least the quad racing will, literally, be done and dusted by the time the bikes start; ha ha ha ...

For those who have not raced or held a Motorsport License there is the option of a WOW license
Cost R350 includes license & entry fee - that's a bargain !
You need proof of your own medical cover for extreme sport or you can buy 50K cover @ R200 for the whole year - another bargain!
You can enter 2 or 3 hr classes.

This is aimed at introducing people to the sport.

Event details at www.westerncapeoffroad.co.za or FB


Would love to give something like this a try! Maybe the next one!

Just one question, can you still ride it on a WOW license with your own medical insurance (non extreme sport) or will you not be allowed to ride?

Also, what are the requirements with regards of bikes? Safety gear? Pit areas?

You are most welcome.
If you have proof from medical they cover you for extreme sport then you don't need to purchase msa cover @R200 for the year
Normal safety gear is important although neck brace is not compulsory.
For pit area you need a ground sheet & 2.5kg fire extinguisher - welcome to join our crowd in pits normally next to Helderberg Yamaha or any of the other dealers always help out (Droomers Yamaha & Eddie 2 Race etc...) - send me a mail  info@westerncapeoffroad.co.za will help you get sorted
only thing to beware of is that you are likely to get hooked on it - enjoy.

Thanks for the info.

With regards to the medical insurance, does your insurance have to cover you for extreme sports? I am with Discovery and as far as I know they do not have such an option.  They cover you for everything.

Sorry for all the questions, just wanna get everything sorted before I try it.
