This is indeed true.

Honda Tygerberg have entered a team of 3 riders on 450 Lís

I want to start a thread on this - question is where? General, Ride reports, racing section or R&P?

hmm.. you can do it one of 2 ways.. start a dedicated thread in the racing section which will cover everything from your prep work and cover the event

If you wanted you could follow up with a condensed version as a ride report in that section as it gets more traffic.

You should know me better than that. I am at too lazy to do it twice.

If allowed I would prefer to do it in General. As it will be bike, ride, race, preparation and all other things bike related. It is also where most of the 450 critics hang out  :)

Until which point will you still accept entries for the GPS class?  I'm assuming that entries for the rally class will close shortly due to the requirement to print the RBs.

Official shut off is the 15th Sept for GPS classes but we would like to know for logistic purposes

Got an e-mail with some additional requirements. Confirm please that the rally class does not need to take the 6 fuel cans along???

Also, will there be fuel at Rooiputs? Just need to know whether to trailer the bike there with a full tank or not.

Thanks

I received an SMS last night stating that there's 65 entries so far and still a few days to go. Looking good for a proper dust-up in the Tankwa  :thumleft:

The rally class needs to have a fuel range of 250km where the silver class is 70km.

Take all the fuel you will need , I doubt there will be enough fuel at rooiputs for the organisers, marshals and all the competitors but you can confirm with Clive..

Rally class will need a range -+ 150km due to change of new land acquired joining HQ farms which reduces liaisons a tittle but adds to Special Stages
At most for Rally 2 cans but one should do for outside refuels (can are returned in evenings).
