Short History of the Namibian Enduro Club
The enduro motorcycle sport has been practised in Namibia since the mid 1980’s. In the earlier years the enduro motorsport was managed and organised as a sub division of the Windhoek Motor Cross Club. In January 2010 the Enduro Working Group decided to join the Windhoek Motor Club. In January 2011 the Namibian Enduro Club was founded by Andreas Brendel, Pieter de Haan and Hein Venter in Windhoek Namibia.
The objectives of the Namibian Enduro Club are follows:
- To promote Enduro / Baja / Cross Country and related activities at social and racing level;
- To co-operate with other groups with similar interests so far as to further the sport of Enduro / Baja / Cross Country and related activities;
- To carry out any other duties or activities conducive to the welfare of members and the welfare of the sport in general.
Since its inception in 2011 the Club has grown tremendously and has hosted and participated in a number of regional and international events.
The Namibian Enduro Club is also an affiliated member of the Namibian Motor Sports Federation (NMSF), the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (International Motorcycling Federation) (FIM) and FIM Africa.
