JOHANNESBURG, Gauteng - Many types of off-road racing have come and gone over the years but there's something new - in a confined area where riders are running a loop and don’t disappear.
Enthusiasts want something that's easy to view, exciting, technical, competitive and all happening right in front of their eyes, say organisers. So if you're into offroading, enduro racing or any other bike riding sport... this is a must for all fans.
The popular Nite X series, staged at Puzey's Biker Warehouse backyard in Randburg under floodlights; is now taking over as the event to enter and great for the spectators and race fans. Organisers claims the event is cleverly staged on a Friday night not to clash with any weekend sport or events, this type of concept racing has become popular with all Offroad type riders.
LOADS OF ACTION
Liqui Moly SA director Melicia Labuschagne said: “We saw this as an ideal event to sponsor as its fresh, certainly spectacular and a great test for our brand. The confined space makes for great racing and lots of action and is perfect for our action brand; we look forward to it going far as a new event.”
The event draws all types of riders and on the night it’s a who’s who in Enduro, Enduro cross, MX and Offroad all having a go at this new concept racing, says the oil company.
Mike Puzey said: “The plan is to make it bigger and better going forward. We will see how it goes this year and if well accepted we will grow the series.
“Entrants total 100 for each event and we have five different classes on the night, we are also trying to cater for all the competitors, let’s see what pans out going forward, but right now all seem to be happy with the concept.”
