I have booked leave for this year's event.  My wife is also keen that I actually do a rallye again.

Yes the poster is a bit misleading - sorry
The plan is for all categories to finish racing on Monday 23rd Sept, the 24th a public holiday gives competitors time to travel home.
We are working on an extra day for Rally class bikes which would be the Friday 20th ie: the Rally class race for four days and Off-road classes three days. These dates have been reserved with Motorsport.
We are just busy with an event this coming weekend then will turn some focus towards Tankwa again and update asap.

From Upington, so far:
Myself
Chris Opperman
Mark Kapnoudis
Willem du Toit is a maybe, but he has a rubber arm
Rudi Tour Neetlingh is also in, but he is only an honourable Upingtonner🤣

CdP13 will report from the Kakamas area. Looks like 3 or 4, but only 2 in the RB class.

I am definetiy in for 1, maybe 2 Rally Class entries. As well as 1/2 mates that would do Offroad class.

Was great event last year. Really hope you get the 20 Roadbook entries.

Cheers

Thanks Charl, Bill & Co   we really managed to turn Tankwa into a great event (even if I say it myself) this happened with passion & hard work.
Dave (Beserker) and I are wanting to add an extra marathon day for the road book class (+-800km), we are serious and committed,  but that comes with extra costs such as medics (3 x teams), timing, officials & of course track setting/routes time (big cost), therefore lets gather riders and promote.

Personally myself and fellow dedicated helpers are passionate to both Rally and Off-road, there is place for both and it brings Off-road closer to Rally and that is where Tankwa is unique. Spectators and families have the privilege of route hopping on the Off-Road class sections, chilling at Race control, making a fantastic environment..... that is Tankwa. Our commitment to local communities has been huge and long term, our club has just raised and sent 60K worth drought relief animal feed to the Tankwa farmers, we also did so in 2018 (200k in value of feed and water supply) - I will open & post a Thank You thread soon).

We have reached an agreement with  Sarel at African Stuff for satellite tracking, so that will happen.

For what competitors get,  our entry fees will be far more reasonable than most Rallys.

@ Cracker sorry to read, hope you heal soon.

We will report back soon - Cheers

Watching with interest.

I hope to join this year.

Every time I see this thread I feel compelled to sing the praises of this event!!

I had a 2 day glimpse into the route testing and organising that goes into this. It is INCREDIBLE! Clive is a legend, his wife even more so.

PLEASE support this event. For your own good. You don't know what you're missing.

Entries  will open  in a month or so this can only be done once final decisions on the routes and possible extra rally class day have been completed. However we will set up an an "Expression of interest" Tab so people can book their spot so long.

Kind regards
