Man this rally looks rad. I really really hope they keep getting enough entries to keep going. At the moment I just cannot afford it, but give me a year or two and I'm there  :ricky:

Tankwa is rather inexpensive compared to the Kalahari rally and what Amageza used to cost.

Sure yes it is well priced and I badly want to have a go at it. Just can't drop 10k on it now unfortunately. Soon though  :thumleft:

See what you mean. My guess is probably cause Sunday is the last full day of riding with 2 special stages. Might end late and most wil sleep over, only leaving the Monday morning. Coming from Pretoria I'm going that route.

You're going to have to strengthen that bridge if me and the Honda need to cross at the same time...

The Tankwa is looking amazing as usual  :thumleft: Desperately trying to get the big green 450 sorted and myself fit in as short a time frame as possible  ::) Sorting out my MSA details today and can hopefully get that entry in soon  :thumleft:

This is a "not to be missed event" guys, find way to be there, even if it's just to spectate, the area is simply breathtaking  :thumleft:
