Namibia: Enduro Sponsorship Renewed

THE Namibian National Enduro Series yesterday received an N$80 000 endorsement from Bank Windhoek for the 2013 season, taking their agreement to a fourth consecutive year.

The 2013 calendar of the Bank Windhoek Namibia Motor Sport Federation (NMSF) Namibia National Enduro Series Championship will see eight events taking place in various parts of the country.

The first race will be held on February 16 at the Tony Rust race track, followed by an outing at Lichtenstein on March 9 before Omakwara hosts the April 13 competition. On June 8, the series moves to Uis /SORC, then Aranos on July 13 and Albrechtshöhe on August 10. Galina will host the second-last race on September 21, with the final race set for Okahandja October 19.

"It is with partners like Bank Windhoek that Enduro in Namibia continues to grow and achieve positive results. We are looking forward to another rewarding season with Bank Windhoek and our other partners," said Andreas Brendel, chairman of the Namibian Enduro Club. The club plans to hold its annual general meeting on January 31 at the Nampower Convention Centre.

"Motor sport has witnessed a positive growth over the years and it is because of the hard work and dedication of the management of the Namibian Enduro Club.

It is for this reason that Bank Windhoek has decided to sponsor the Enduro Series for the fourth consecutive year under the auspices of the Namibian Enduro Club. With the programme lined up during 2013, the races should serve as excellent preparation for the riders, should any of them decide to move to a bigger stage like the Dakar," said Bank Windhoek's Riaan van Rooyen,
