College kid wants to race rallies
I'm frustrated!!! I want to race an international (hopefully South America) rally this year and I have gotten no where with anyone that could offer any insight into fixed costs, regulations, bike requirements, equipment requirements, can I run malle-moto... can I not? etc, etc, etc... the list goes on and on!
I'm very interested in the Rally Dos Sertoes or the Ruta 40 race.... can anyone point me in the right direction?
my ideal scenario:
1 - race without an assistance team - I'll take one friend along to help work on the bike in the evenings (can he get a ride every day to the next stage end?)
2 - I want to have someone else transport my spares/tools/camp gear much like the Dakar Malle Moto (would I be able to do this with a team member or strictly alone?
3 - REASONABLE shipping costs to and from the USA
4 - what bike gear is necessary? ERTF... Unik1 or 2? Sentinal? Rastro? Baliese?
5 - do everything on a VERY tight budget...
Any help would be greatly appreciated... so far everyone I've talked to seems to be either busy with other things or have deep pockets...
