Upcoming GS Challenge Announcement
« on: April 11, 2007, 02:53:12 pm »
The 2007 GS Challenge will boast some very interesting changes - and you can hear all about it at the Annual Gathering on 28 April.

"We've worked through the great feedback from attendees to the 2006 Challenge at Moolmanshoek, and have adapted the event for 2007 to ensure that we continue to deliver the experience our clients ask for," says organising team member Deon Meyer.

BMW Motorrad General Manager Lachlan Harris will announce the changes during the big dinner party at the Annual Gathering in Victoria West.

"The modifications will also include a major adjustment to the highly popular Skills Challenge, which will not only make this competition much more fair, but will also enhance spectator value, interest and participation considerably."

According to Deon, die-hard Challenge participants need not worry that the changes will dilute the spirit and tradition of the event. "The basics remain the same, and we're pretty sure the new additions and adjustments will augment the unique character of the Challenge" he says.


Mmmmm.... ja-nee, it's not a race... :twisted:  :twisted:  :twisted:

If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!

Looking forward to hearing about the changes, Would be interesting to know how much they listen to their clients needs.

Anyone going to ABBG this year?

What will be nice, is if the GS Challenge is in the Richtersveld :twisted:
I'm not a complete idiot, some parts are missing!
