Trackdays in South Africa

Hi, was wondering if anyone had any information about doing track days in South Africa. A friend of mine lives there and I was thinking of doing a track day out there when I went to visit him. I could probably bring my own gear with me but I'd need to rent a bike when I got there. Are there companies that rent bikes out there??

Any info. would be helpful.

Thanks!

Hi!

I stay in Cape Town, and have only done trackdays locally. There used to be a company here that you could rent bikes from, but since they dissolved I don't think that there's anybody here that rents bikes out. I'm not sure as to whether this is the same in Joburg or elsewhere. I suppose that you could email one of the local dealers and perhaps they could point you in the right direction.

Sorry I couldn't help you more! If you want me to let you know when CT trackdays are happening, just let me know. I get notice of them a week or two in advance.

Thanks for the info.! Do you think you can provide me with some web addresses or names for the local dealers? I'm not exactly sure where my friend lives but I think its Pretoria which I believe is near Johannesburg.

Yeah, Joburg and Pretoria are neighbouring cities. That means that you'll be going to Kyalami - NICE! You've probably got the best chance of finding a bike to rent up there.

All the web addresses have the suffix ".co.za", so the meaningful ones are:
www.honda.co.za
www.yamaha.co.za
www.suzuki.co.za

Maybe you'll get lucky and your email will be passed along to someone who can help. Otherwise I suggest getting in contact with one of the other South African's on the site - check out the names in the African meeting point @ 600RR.net > Meeting Point > Africa / South Africa.
