1. Can competitors get through Red Bull Romaniacs without a service car and crew?
Yes, assuming that competitors can provide service for their own motorcycle in the evening.
Additionally, competitors will be provided with fuel at all stops along the course (Fuel for 4 strokes & Fuel with 2 stroke oil for the 2 strokes that need oil) Includes drinking water at all fuel points on the track.
There is also the option to purchase ''race service packages and rental motorcycles'' to save competitors working after exhausting long days in the saddle. Believe us: Competitors need all the minutes of sleep they can get.
2. How well-trained must competitors be in order to finish the competition?
Competitors should feel comfortable on the single trails and train their bodies to endure five tough days of competition. On the other hand they don’t have to be a world champions, because the competition’s length needs endurance, safe driving and technique, rather than speed.
3. Is a Roadbook or a trip master necessary?
A Roadbook is not mandatory. A trip master can provide an advantage because it helps determine competitors geographical placement and their mileage, so computing competitor speed and establishing a daily strategy will become easier.
Considering that parts of the track can take place where, in unfavourable conditions, visibility is extremely reduced, having a GPS device fitted is mandatory. The organisers will ensure the uploading of the competition tracks onto competitors GPS device(s).
Read the Special Regulations (5.6 and 5.7) for more information regarding GPS navigation.
