Overview:  

Enduro's are longer distance off road racing events that are probably best described as competitive trail riding.  There are various layouts and formats available where entrants can race Ironman classes for a full 3 or 4 hours, or team up with a partner to race alternative laps of a 5 to 35km course.

What you need in order to ride:  

  • Your Own ATV / Quad.
  • Helmet, eye protection, gloves, long sleeves and pants, boots and body armour as per Motorcycling Australias General Competition Rules are the minimum essential riding requirements.

Most experienced club members exceed minimum clothing requirements with some wearing full body armour and protective gear. Exceeding the minimum requirement is encouraged. More is always better.

Licences:

Mandatory Motorcycling South Australia One Event Competition licences are available for these events at a cost of $65.00 per person.

MSA Rider Levies apply at $16.00 per person per event.

Plus QuadridersSA club event charge vary from event to event depending on venue hire and other factors. Day riding typically costs $20.00 to $50.00.

Please contact the event Co-ordinator for further details.
