For those still needing to get your syncro’s serviceable for the event please start to do it now, you have 10 months to do it in, we don’t care what your Syncro looks like, dented, bashed, rusted, well used, pristine, normal microbus, caravelle, camper, doka, just get it there, ask your friends with other syncro’s to join as well. The more the merrier.

We have not had a National Syncro Saamtrek since 2008, all syncro’s welcome, T 3, T 4, and T 5 4motions. Forum members with 2wd buses also welcome, as are Amaroks, Touaregs etc, any VW 4x4.

We will invite a national outdoor/4x4 Magazine to cover the event and will see if we can get some TV coverage as well. We will also make an event DVD as per other years, with video and pictures. We will offer the magazine and TV programme a sponsored campsite for the duration of the event.

We are also looking for prize sponsors and prizes etc, please forward any leads to me on email below
Any queries please contact me on either sds@mweb.co.za or call 083 629 9951
Please do bookings on http://www.syncrosa.co.za or private mails to me @syncromad on the forum

Thanks Stuart

Just one question....it states in the rules...
• Only suitable, recognised tents, caravans and motor homes are allowed to camp in the caravan park.
• Sleeping in cars and bakkies will not be allowed.
Are our syncros classed as campers or cars?
Many of us have converted our syncros into campers but it has not been done by a recognised camper conversion center.
The reason I ask is that I have had problems at a few resorts/camps in the past regarding this whole issue and at one place was forced to book a chalet because of it

RE: 2016 national syncro saamtrek- Pricing and Booking info
WOW!!!
If there are 1400 registered members on the forum 100 syncros for a saamtrek is a breeze......or am I mistaken guys??
We have a unique opportunity to get ourselves in the media and news!!
It would really be a shame that we cant even muster 100 syncros (10% of our members) for an awesome event!!
Come on guys!!! lets show the other clubs out their that a vehicle that is 25 years old can still run with and surpass the so called "big dogs" and the we have the passion to do this

Life's a journey, enjoy the ride.......in comfort in a syncro!!!
