Adrenaline ticker series this weekend

High flying risk takers: The Bank Windhoek Namibia National Enduro Series is set to start at farm Omakwara in the Witvlei district this Saturday

The long anticipated wait is almost over as this weekend marks the first race of the Bank Windhoek Namibia National Enduro Series, which will be held on the farm, Omakwara in the Witvlei area, 170 km east of Windhoek on Saturday.

Günter Brettschneider, Chairman of the Namibia Enduro Club, said, “the track is known by many riders as the valley of a thousand turns. Smooth, red sanded farm roads are the staple of the race and with the little rain that we have received so far this season, the track will most likely be very dry, dusty and the grip on the track will be redefined after this event.”
“Almost all riders love this track as it is physically less demanding on the body and is therefore the perfect race to kick off the 2015 season. That being said, it is also the venue for our fun event and we encourage everyone big, small, old and young to join the riders in the first event of the year. If you have a motorbike or quad bike, a helmet and some old clothes and a pair of tight shoes, the Namibian Enduro Club invites you to come out and have some fun,” he said
“There will be a separate class for the fun riders to enter in and they will only be riding 19km of the 54 km route.  The entry fee will be N$200 for the day,” Günter explained.
There will also be a fenced-off kiddies track which is approximately 500m in length and is free of charge for any of the little ones who want to ride.
For the national bikes and quads, there will be a slight change this year with the addition of a new technical section which will make the course a bit more challenging for the seasoned racers.
Both quads and bikes do well here but the fast and bendy route is more suited to quad bikes. With the interesting track and new additions, the Namibia Enduro Club plans to beat the 2013 record number of entries at Omakwara of 105.
