Karoo Roadbook Practise Camp 2021

Apr 24, 2021 (12:00 AM) - Apr 26, 2021 (11:59 PM)

Welcome to

Karoo Roadbook Camp Practise 2021

Hey everyone,

We have created the perfect opportunity for you to come and train/practice roadbook riding, or if you are new to the sport, to come and learn how to ride a roadbook. This is not a race, it is a chance for you to experience what a real rally is like, without the stress of a high paced event.

Is this for you?

If you are new to rally or want to try it out it’s an easy way to enter the world of rally.  A chance to try out a navigational style event without breaking the bank.

If you own a rally bike, and have rally experience and want to get to use your bike (or share your skills and advice), this event is for you, as it will give you a chance to ride roadbooks.

If you want a taste of rally but don’t have a rally bike or nav equipment, you can join us using a GPS.

The idea is to have a roadbook riding/practice weekend where we can get to use our rally bikes, learn from each other, enjoy nature and just have a lekker time at as low as possible of a cost. 

 

What is included?

Roadbooks:

– Saturday – 200km technical tracks, riverbeds, mountain tracks, 4×4 routes, rocks, tricky navigation

– Sunday – 430km fast wide open farm roads, liaison style roads and technical mountain tracks

– Monday – 200km fast and flowing section, with some river beds and one very technical mountain/4×4 section, tricky navigation

Roadbook for 50km loop around the campsite for practice at own pace

Please don’t be fooled by these distances. The routes are designed to be tricky, difficult and tough so that you can get real roadbook experience.
