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
Any update?

Hi my apologies - I have put it to MSA and need to discuss further - they waiting on me, I just had too many work & track commitments too.
We (WCOC) host a National (KB400) & two back to races this coming weekend after that our series only has 1 round left (which I will not be arranging)  so  we can really focus on Tankwa 20119. We will put something together to secure your spot as soon as possible. Beserker with some key Tankwa helpers have been burning the wick at KB but fairly certain we can announce more details soon (it is very promising !!!!). One thing for sure is after KB I will change focus 100% to Tankwa onwards !
Thanks for your patience & kind regards.

There are a couple of YouTube vids which explain a lot about roadbook rallying.

Lyndon Poskitt did a great vid with commentary about the Mongolian Rally:

And here's one from a bunch of real amateurs doing an introduction to Roadbook Rallying with proper Pooratech equipment.

Sooo...

Most of the Offroad Racing done, time for us to focus on the Tankwa, and for you to bring your A - Game on.

Exciting news, some more classes for you to compete in:

  • Rally
  • Rally Light
  • Off Road

Rally - full on Rally, road worthy bike, road book, 250km range etc.  The Rally class starts first, on clean tracks for them to test their roadbook skills.
Rally Light - as per above, navigation by GPS.

Rally "Light" class, i.e. an adventure bike class, must be able to do the distance, but navigation is with GPS.
They will start after the Rally class, with a delay - same race, same day, same distance, same-same, but without the commitment to a rally navigation set-up.

It is specifically aimed at the riders that prefer the the type of riding that makes a 500/690 the preferred adventure bike, or those with rally aspirations and starting out on a small budget.
We need to grow the numbers in some way, not breaking at least even is not sustainable for a club - as it is, there is a shortage of opportunity to grow local talent, and our thought was to lower the bar to entry, and entice more riders.


Off Road classes

Gold Class, approx 800km

Open:      Max  300 2T, 450 4T
Big Bore: Min   500 2T,  550 4T
Juniors:   Max  200 2T,  250 4T
Ladies:

Silver Class, approx 550km

Men:      Race what you bring
Ladies:   Race what you bring
VE         Pre 1994


VE (VinDuro for those that does not compete in VMX)  -  lot of guys with old Maico's, Huskies, XR's, XT's, IT's, PE's, the mighty CR/KX/KTM 500 2T's, etc. etc. etc.
The Tankwa will give you the oppertunity to again race them like yester-year, in conditions that spawned the original design.

Personally, I think it is not only a great oppertunity for riders with these bikes, but also for spectators  to witness the power and glory of these monsters.


Finally:  short survey, let us know what you think:  http://tiny.cc/o2h76y

Hi
There is a Tankwa page on our Website www.westerncapeoffroad.co.za
You will need a Motorsport  Club License (Cross Country or Enduro) for which you need a Club membership. Our membership application form is under down loads tab on our site. We will only charge you R100 membership ignore the original fee,  just write in Tankwa purposes and mail back please?

Guys, can you just provide some more information here please ?

I've gone to the website and completed the form. I'll mail that to Jolene.
Which license do I need. MSA or WOW ?
I did have a look at MSA, but the Tankwa is not listed there as an event yet?

Thanks
Mark

If you don't have an MSA license you can take out a One event license just for Tankwa. But I feel your pain, I went to check out MSA's online web site and it's not exactly user friendly. I couldn't find any link under my login profile to add a new license for 2019... go figure.

PLEASE NOTE minimum requirement is a club license or one event club license NO WOW license for Tankwa.

Will put up more info asap.

Cool thanks ... would you be able to have them add the Tankwa event on MSA ? So that I can go ahead and purchase the license.

Thanks

Hi Mark
Just checked with MSA - they will load the event once the event permit has been issued. I'll submit the regs for the permit after this weekend's meetings in Tankwa. It normally take a week to ten days and let you know sorry about the red tape.
