SA’s biggest social race  returns to its home at Red Star for 2015, and is again social and fun with groupings, half hour stops and a Relay Race. Read on…

Relay Race: more than one bike per team…

In the Endurance Race, each team completes the race with one motorcycle, but in the Relay Race class a team can use more than one bike. For example, 4 riders in a team can use 4 different bikes, 5 riders 5 bikes and 6 riders 6 bikes. Both classes start and finish together and follow the same pit stop and ABCD group rules.

As with previous 24 Hours, riders in each team will be split into 1/2 hour groups with laps time limits in each group meaning that everyone, whether a pro racer or a track school rider, can take part and share the track with riders of a similar pace.

For more information and to download the full rules and entry forms, see the 24 Hour page in the Rallies & Events menu at the top of this page.
