Extreme Lights is a proud sponsor of Team 525 in this year's grueling Amageza Rally. This gang of mad max endurance racers will make the rest of the field look like kindergarten teachers. This year's Amageza Rally will start on the 29th of August in Kimberley.
Amageza is a FIM sanctioned Multi-day stage rally run through South Africa, Botswana and Namibia. Similar to the Dakar Rally of South America. It is a test of machine and man. Just finishing one of the seven days is an extraordinary accomplishment.
‘Amageza’ is the local Southern African (Xhosa) word for ‘crazy’ – a vital ingredient you’ll need to brave this grueling rally challenge and win through for a coveted Finisher’s Medal.
Facing long marathon stages, competitors traverse ‘liaison’ & ‘special’ race sections, in the rally adventure style similar to the Dakar Rally event.
First run in 2011, the Amageza Rally is Southern Africa’s only multi-day, multi-stage rally, with a daily moving bivouac that crosses a breathtaking, diverse variety of terrain: mountain ranges, dense African bush, giant salt pans, Karoo semi-desert, the world-renown Namib-Kalahari Desert, and the unforgiving Skeleton Coast.
