Published with Permission
The Interprovincial Challenge which will be held in Bloemfontein
at the Shavron motocross circuit on the 9th and 10th August, has
received some 250 entries. This will be the largest gathering of
motocross riders in the last decade and has attracted many South
African champions past and present. The event, which is being
co convened by Bloemfontein and Cape Town, will incorporate
another challenge, the North Vs South Challenge, where
Northern regions (Gauteng) will take on the rest of South Africa.
The following provinces have entered strong teams:
The Free State
The Western Cape
The Eastern Cape
The Northern Regions
The Western Cape is expected to be strong opposition and team Manager
Paul Vlaanderen believes his team has what it takes to beat Gauteng.
The Eastern Cape team will see riders such as Marc the bomber
Baxter up against Richard van Der Westhuizen and Tyson Engelbrecht,
the Free state hopeful. The MX 2 class has attracted 38 riders,
just two short of a full gate of 40. Racing in this class will be
intense. Caleb Tennant (WC) believes he has what it takes to win
this competitive class.
James Coetzer (WC) in the 125cc high school class, is one of the
privateers hoping to upset some of the locals at the WOMZA Interprovincial
challenge on 9 & 10 August
The 65cc class will be the one to watch as Grant Hutton (EC) is
sure to cause problems for Dalton Venter (NR). Thirty plus of these
pocket rockets will be on the line.
In the 85cc class Matthew Kruger is expected to dominate proceedings
but not without a worthy challenge from his team mate Ruben Aucamp.
Young Justin Sangster from Cape Town, who has just returned from
a very successful racing tour in Europe, will be sure to mix it
with the top 5 riders in this class.
Marcus Phelps will be the boy to beat in the Pro Mini class consisting
of 85cc two stroke and 150 four stroke bikes. Marcus, too, has just
returned from riding in the Red Bull cup in the UK as well as in
Spectators will also be treated to a separate ladies race.
