Beaufort (Raglan) Vinduro - Sunday 7 May 2017
« on: April 10, 2017, 10:20:50 PM »
The VERi committee is hard at work getting this year's edition of the Beaufort Vinduro organised. We can tell you that the 4th edition will consist of three separate sections of 20 - 25 kms. There'll most likely be a supplementary fuel dump, so it might pay to bring an additional fuel container if you have concerns about fuel range.

We will be riding on some tracks that we have not used previously, taking in some new and picturesque areas.

Camping will be available at the Raglan Reserve, and there are plenty of other local accommodation options. No catering has been organised by VERi, so BYO food and drink and please take advantage of local businesses wherever possible.

Please note that there will not be any organised riding on the Saturday before the event (i.e. the 'special test' track in the paddock).

Stay tuned for more details.

That's right, time to get the spanners out, fix that flat tyre, change the oil, dust off your gear, etc, etc...

Yes, rec rego bikes are fine, and of course classic/full rego bikes are as well. VERi is not organising UVPs.

More info as it becomes available.

Doesn't your mate have an XT250 you can borrow? The perfect vinduro machine!

A few pre-entries are rolling in, including several from interstate which is great to see.

You can enter at the event and there's no late fee. If you're arriving on Sunday please try and get there early as riders' briefing will be at 8.30am, with riders away at 9am.

We're planning to have at least one fuel dump along the course, so bring a couple of approved petrol containers if you're concerned about range. The course will be between 60-70 kms in total, comprising 3 separate sections.

The Raglan Recreation Reserve is located on Raglan-Elmhurst Road. From Beaufort follow King Street over the railway tracks and out of town. King St becomes Main Lead Road, and then becomes Raglan-Reserve Road.
