Event Description

Enduro World Magazine has been running a succesfull series of Extreme Cross- Country Off road Motorcycle events in Gauteng and and Cape Town. The upcoming event is the final championship round for 2010

The series of EWXC (Enduro World X Country) events in the Western Cape has been identified as specific to our region. One of the first and probably the most important factors is the need for spectator growth in the sport. We have achieved this by bringing the event loacation closer to the crowds. We have chosen the Zone 7 Offroad track as our venue. This is only a few km from Milnerton on the N7,on van Schoorsdrift road, the same road as the ostrich farm and it is easily accesible from all areas.

Offroad Motorcycles have changed over the years and many different disciplines have emerged, two of these are Moto-X,

which is based on a short circuit consiting of jumps and tight corners and Enduros which are held on virgin land and entail riding over exrtreme mountaous and forest obstacles and other technical type terrains for long distances. In the recent years a new discipline has developed called Enduro X .This has taken the extreme side of the Enduro events and combined it with the intense speed and tight circuits of the Moto X track and these have mailnly been held in in stadiums.

The EWXC in Cape Town combines all of the above disicplines, MotoX Enduro and Enduro X and adds some more extreme highlights to event.

We achieve this buy holding the event on the Zone 7 Enduro loop (track) and incorporating parts of the Moto-X track into it. This has been done in the past and has been a succesfull match. To set the EWXC aside from the norm we incorporate 16 man–made obstacles where the spectators will have wild entertainment .Seeing the riders succesfully handle each obstacle with skill and grace or seeing some spectacular sights as the riders get it wrong and battle to find a tracktable route through the obstacle.

The need for more and more extreme sports is not something new its just a fact of life. People have always been attracted to Thrills andf Spills and while they love to see some one winning they also identify with the guys who are struggling.

To Enable us to bring the this event to the public we sponsorship of each obstacle helps fund the event.

The day consist of 5 different 45min heats (Races) and each of these heats are brokern up in to the relevant classes. The will be a kiddies corner for the younger ones, plus wine stating and lives bands throught the day. Food and bevages are availble at the club and stalls and also halfway down the track at the waterholes.

Easy access spectator points at each obstacle and a tractor will ferry the spectators up and down the obstacle route.

If you havnt seen these event before you just dont know what you are missing.

"The upcoming event is the final championship round for 2010" Not actually a championship, its just a couple of random races at the moment still. Hoping for a championship next year

Howzit I was at the race (watching) on Saturday. Flipping awesome track, but now I hear that the EWXC Calendar is being discontinued due to not enough support :-( Not cool! I was looking forward to joining next year.
