From Willem Avenant-After the recent rains the Great Karoo is looking amazing. I am adding some really special sections to the route with some tricky navigation and some interesting hill climbs 😉 Had a great scouting mission today.

The longest stage will be around 450km with fast flowing liaison style Karoo roads, covering 3 provinces in 1 day(Eastern, Western and Northen Cape), passing through the legendary Karoo town of Nieu-Bethesda and then circumnavigating the highest point in South Africa outside the Drakensberg massif, Kompasberg.

From there the route will go through several private game reserves and then pass through private farms with lots of tricky navigation that will require your full attention.

Update from Willem galivanting in the vlaktes
One of the things I love about roadbook riding is that it takes us to truly unique, wonderfull and inaccessible places.  It truly encompasses everything about adventure for me.  Working on a very special river bed section.

Ryan Hawker from Durban does a u tube  rally build on his ktm450 with ultimate goal of doing the Kalahari 1000 but will be joining Willem as well. Ryan coolcat laid back durban man of note- quite interesting

Update

Its been a super busy week, I finally scouted  all the specials!!!  We have some monster routes planned, and with some bakkies joining, I made a special stage to include some HP (now OP), for both bakkies and bikes.

It is turning more into a rally emulation than a roadbook camp, as we will have live tracking, allotted start times, Control and De-Control Zones, Speed Zones, etc... Only difference between this and a real rally will be the speed.

We will have quite a few Dakar 2022 hopefulls joining us, as well as trying out/using some electronic roadbook setups, that we are still putting together.

If you are planning to join us, please make sure you get your entry in ASAP, as we have limited space.
