The first round of the Diamonds & Dirt amateur ladies fun race series kicked off on 26 March at the ever popular Dirt Bronco. The series, which is running for the fourth year, is catered to give new ladies on dirt bikes a place to learn and grow but to also offer existing riders a place to come out and have fun with other ladies.

All over SA there are riding groups dedicated to the growth of ladies on dirt bikes and at round 1, the event was well support by the Offroad & Enduro Ladies as well as the SA Dirt Bike Ladies.

Loads of fun was had by all as the ladies were put through their paces in both MX and Off Road with a tricky very rocky enduro section that not only offered a tough challenge but in return gave the ladies a massive sense of accomplishment as they fought hard to get to the other side with massive cheers to go with their achievement.
The new owner of Dirt Bronco, Eddie did a fantastic job in hosting us and we look forward to heading back there for Round 3 later in the year.

We have seen many ladies go through the paces at these events and move on to regional and national racing, a clear sign that the stepping stones we have in place at these events do work.

The series is proudly supported by Motorsport South Africa, Women in Motorsport and partners like Fox and the Sunoco Race Shop are behind the initiative as well.

The next round takes place on 25 June at Nutbush in Hekpoort.
