Programme, costs etc?

HI
Program and costs will only be finalised sometime around beginning July. Just want to get some more of the important things sorted at Tankwa as not all routes are not yet final. For now we have two BC (Quaggas Kloof) back to back races to sort 16/17 June before heading back to Tankwa before we can finalise Regulations.

Intended program (Provisional)
22 Sept Race section 1 includes Time Trail & for overall score.
23 Sept Race section 2 Marathon day
24 Sept Race section 3

Bike classes will be kept simple however we are in consultation with others first.
I can mention there will be no social class & minimum age is 16  Also Competitors would have had to completed at least one race beforehand.

regards

Hi Cracker,
Having participated in MSA Off-Road, Enduro or Rally races or otherwise convince the committee that one is capable. We respect all however this is race where some experience & common sense is required.

Tx Offroad2.

This type of racing appeals to me lots - There's an outside chance I might get to this one - just gotta rope in some willing pit-crew.

I can hear them running as I type ..................  ::)
