INTRO

This year the IMPI Hard Enduro will be held in the Northern Drakensberg, Bergville area. The Start/Finish will be remote, not at a resort. The Time Trail will be at a different starting point to Friday and Saturday start/finish.

Entries open on 15th April, 2024 at 10am. Your MSA one event Leisure license will be included in the entry fee.


ACCOMMODATION

Book anywhere in the Northern Drakensberg. Everything is quite close so you should find a B&B, Guest House or camping ground in the area. There will be a list of suggestions on the website under accommodation. We will have the IMPI tented village set up at ATKV Drakensville, which you can book on the website when entries open. Once tracks have been finalized we will load the locations of the TT, start/finish day 1 and day 2, fuel points and spectator points on telegram

IMPI FORMAT

There are 4 classes to choose from. IRON, BRONZE, SILVER or GOLD. Riders need to choose a class. If a rider chooses to enter Gold, he will start in the Gold class in order of time trial results. If he is unable to complete gold, he will be downgraded to the class he completed for the next day. He will start at the back of that class, with a 1 hour time penalty. The same will apply for a rider that has entered Silver, and has to downgrade during the event. He will start the next day at the back of the class he completed, with a 1 hour time penalty. This applies to all the classes.

A rider can choose to upgrade while riding. eg: if he entered Bronze, he can choose to ride Silver and Gold while on the track. He will start in the class that he completed the previous day. All riders under 16 need a chaperone. The chaperone will have to pay their own entry fee.


FUEL

Fuel at the refuel out on track will be provided for by IMPI. You will need your own fuel to refuel your bike in the Start/Finish area. The IMPI refuel will have unleaded petrol as well as mixed petrol available. Please make sure you chose the correct fuel. The mixed will be mixed 50:1 with Liqui Moly racing 2 stroke oil.

If a rider does not want to use our fuel he may refuel with his crew in the marked area.
