South Africa’s biggest Dirt Bike Festival will be back this year at Legends Adventure Farm between the 1 – 3 September 2023. Supported by Motorsport South Africa and FIM, this is one of the most exciting events on the racing calendar, spanning three days and featuring a multitude of racing categories including motocross, free style, enduro and cross-country events.
Seasoned organiser, Guy Henley of Out of Africa Group, says he believes the Festival, now only in its second year, will be bigger and better than the inaugural event and is looking forward to attracting participants across the various disciplines as well as a much bigger spectator crowd this year. “This is the ideal opportunity for families who are involved in the sport or who have a passion and interest in competing to really experience the thrills and spills of dirt bike racing.
Spectator tickets are now available and can be purchased through TicketPro. “We’ve kept the entry fees affordable for spectators at just R85 for a day pass and R140 for a weekend pass (Friday – Sunday). Children under 10 can enter free of charge.”
The festival is also a great showcase for brand partners and vendors involved in the sport to showcase their wares as well as some of the newest and most exciting racing merchandise on view. “There will be a live band on Saturday afternoon for great family entertainment together with a gin bar and kiddies play area. We have also confirmed some of the sports best brand ambassadors like Jesse Wright, and Cameron Durow for MX and Lourens Mahoney, Kerim Fitzgerald and Charan Moore for Cross Country. “These dirt bike heroes will be participating on the day and available for autographs from the fans. Watch this space to see who else will be available on the weekend,” says Henley.
With just over two months to go until the commencement of the Festival, Adrian Scholtz, Chief Executive Officer of MSA says, “Racing dirt bikes is one of the most challenging, exhilarating and rewarding things you can do on two wheels, but it is easy to get overwhelmed on where to get started. To an untrained eye, dirt bikes all look the same but that couldn’t be further from the truth. If you already have a specific type of dirt bike, that might determine which type of racing you want to try. If you haven’t bought one yet, then the Dirt Bike Festival could be the ideal place to make that choice,” he says.
