Motul presents Stofskop “run what you brung” event this weekend – 15 Sept, Walkerville oval
Motul is partnering with the organisers of the third annual Stofskop Dash in the Dust taking place on Saturday 15th September at the historic Walkerville speedway track for an extraordinary motorcycle event where anything goes.
The track is oval, flat and dirt. Dust and noise hang thick in the air as the riders hook first gear, keep left, go fast and let fly. It’s the most fun you can have on two wheels – or watching from around the track. Stofskop is all about adrenaline and taking part, with a funky, super-relaxed vibe thanks to slightly crazy competitors and their wacky riding gear. No wonder people who attend Stofskop love it, and come back year after year.
Stofskop will appeal to motorcycle enthusiasts and families looking for something a little different to do. With spectators’ tickets just R20 at the gate and children under 12 getting in for free, it’s an affordable day out, too.
“Motul believes in making motorcycling more accessible, and Stofskop is exactly the sort of event that creates interest in the motorsports that everyone at Motul is so committed to,” stated Mercia Jansen, Motul Area Manager for Southern and Eastern Africa.
“The first rule of Stofskop is that there are no rules,” explains Stofskop’s chief organiser, Chris Shelvey. “However, in the interests of safety, riders can find the guidelines and category classifications on our website at www.stofskop.co.za”
Intrepid riders are invited to “run what you brung” so Stofskop visitors can expect to see a wide variety of motorcycles on display and in action, from scooters to custom builds. In fact, anything goes, as long as it (more or less) fits into one of the following categories:
- Inappropriate Road Bike
- Moped Mash
- Chops & Bobbers
- Scrambler and Tracker
- Plastic Pigs
Riders wanting to pit their wits – and their machines – against each other and against the legendary dirt track at the home of the Walkerville Speedway Riders Club, can firstname.lastname@example.org September 7th, 2018. Race entry is just R330 per motorcycle.
With the unofficial motto of the 2018 Stofskop event being “In Dust We Trust”, both riders and spectators are promised a full day of entertainment and fast-paced action, with professional flat track and speedway rider demonstrations of how to master the dirt and a series of surprisingly unconventional races. Food, drink and other vendors will be contributing to the festival atmosphere, and each rider or spectator entry includes a ticket for the Walkerville Stofskop Grand Prize Draw.
