Very keen on taking the XR in the Vinduro class.

Just a few questions, sorry haven't done something like this before.

1. Do you need your own GPS or is there an option of renting one?
2. If it's only me and my wife, will that be good enough or do you actually need a team?

Regards

Hi
Yes you need a GPS something  like Garmin Etrax 10 or 20 upwards
You don't need a service team we have a fuel truck that takes the fuel cans out early mornings.

Hi Guys,

Maybe I'm missing something but on the MSA website where I have to choose my club in the dropdown menu I don't see anything about a one event license?

Help....

So if I was to enter with the 1190 and a GPS, it would be silver class big bore?

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.

Hi Guys on the WCOC web site under downloads there is a Step by Step link on how to purchase a MSA license online
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
Mark
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.
Hi Guys
Tankwa event is loaded at MSA Online (loaded in date order) and you can purchase your MSA ONE EVENT LICENSE for Tankwa XCR. This way you don't require a club Membership. Entries should open in about a week.

Hi If you choose a one event License you don't need to be a member of a club - the event was loaded this morning under the one event license options - just scroll down due the date order

Hi Clive,

Just checked now. When I log in on my profile I don't see any link or option about a one event licence. It only gives me an option of choosing a club...

Finally got this sorted, thanks.

Another question (apologies):

If I select the license type: One Event Motorcycle (club) and proceed to the next page of insurance, It looks like it's compulsory to take insurance (R285) as it is the only option. Does this mean I have to take it?

A quick answer is yes .................. all MSA sanctioned events require you to have a license AND use their insurance. T

Useful info on GPS mounts.
From personal experience I have found those aluminium billet mounts don't work for my garmin etrax 10 & 20, due to vibration (especially on a Raptor 700) they switch off and have seen this on many bikes too. Tried packing the batteries with press stick, paper and wiring straight to bike battery but they still switch off, however not when in your pocket or hydration pack. It is simply vibration between the battery holder and brain.
Last years event and with scouting we tested there  silicone J mounts with no problem at all, they are definitely worth it. Available for Etrax double or single holder & Oregan models
You can purchase from Lizelle    debtors@curtismobile.co.za

Ek is redelik ernstig......as ek dit nie die jaar maak nie, sal ek beslis daar wees volgende jaar. Ek peins al vir baie lank wat om te maak met die Vespa sonder papiere.......
