    I'm with Balkan on this one... :nod

    Okay, so they're not the best of photo's for comparison, and the KTM pictured is the current 2020/21 production version of the 450RR... so it's not an exact science... but ... to my eye "senora Fantic prototype" :lurk is carrying a bit more bulk around her ribs than miss "Katie Em". :icy

    :deal

    The figure of the latest 450 RR is even slimmer... :1drink

    can anyone please explain why no permits were in place for this rally ?

    TEAM KAPRIONY
    How come no press release, no explanation, no mention of refunds, usually within 24 hours they give communication, at least out of respect for pilots and workers.

    Guillaume Mingot
    Following our patience at the Hispania rally do you have any information regarding reimbursement of commitments and expenses that we incurred over 7000 euros for 2 buggy for just a 322 km race day. instead of 5 days running.
    because the rally did not have the authorisations as the police told us in the forest.
    we expect answers and explanations. No communication since Tuesday 12 pm. This organization is not serious and it is a disrespect to all riders.

    Unfortunately for all involved... there is a good chance (gut feeling) that you may well be right.

    Having never been involved in organisation I wouldn't know but my guess would be that a vast majority of the expenses for running the rally have been paid already... obviously apart from any permits.

    From the regulations:




    Approved on what base? What did they check?
    What should they check?

    If they approved, they are responsible, ........................it depends on the offense.................

    No, in the end it probably all makes sense. No entry list available, no routes or schedule available to not inform anybody there is a rally going on. The organisation took a gamble and the competitors where the ones who lost.

    It was / should have been my first rally :(

    I'd entered for the March 2021 dates, other than the cancellation email I got there was no communication about rescheduling. I couldn't make the October dates so asked to transfer to next March, which allegedly was going to be held in Portugal.

    I've written the entry fee off, the complete silence about this cancellation means I've no confidence in any future events run by this organisation and given that the entry fee is only a small portion of the overall costs I'm not planning to throw any more money in the hope it runs. I doubt anyone else with any sense will either.

    Just a sign from God that you were too fast to compete in this one. You need a bigger field and better roads. Ones that are, you know, open.

    They don't want girls riding and possibly dying in the SA deserts ? Sounds like an attorney got in on the entries.
