ZE COMANDO was born on 19th August 1966 in Benguela. After his parents moved to Potugal, ZE COMANDO was introduced to mx-racing aboard a Casal-Boss 50ccm. Returned to Angola he tried his luck in a few RAIDS (Offroad-Racing) earning him some fine results.
Afterwards ZE decided to race mx and he won the Benguela MX-Championship four times in a row. Even in far away Angola people were talking about the Namibian Inter-Series and in the year 2000 ZE took part for the first time in this prestigious event…and he got hooked. Year after year he travelled to Namibia and his best achievement came in 2003 when he finished the Clubmen’s Class as runner-up. After this excellent feat ZE was invited to race the 2004 National-Championship in Namibia. ZE accepted this invitation and with the help of Messrs Porto do Lobito ZE flew to each and every race in Namibia and won the Masters-Class on maximum points. The year after he repeated this feat, now the regulations forced him to move up in 2006 to the protagonists of the sport, to the Open-Class category. Despite mixed results he still managed to jump the rostrum in 3rd overall. That was absolutely a major achievement at his age of 40 years.

This year ZE is geared to show a good result again aboard his Honda CRF 450R. He is also the captain of Rent-A-Drum Team Angola. ZE gets sponsored by Muxima Bed & Breakfast
For the first time in the 11 year old history of the Namibian Inter-Series there comes a participant in the Quad-Class from Angola, his name is Fabio Ferreira. Fabio was born on 3rd October 1988 in Luanda. After some fine results achieved during the year 2006 he became the Number One rider in the Team Maianga, sponsored by Fazenda Perola Do Kikuxi (Helder Santos). In the 2007 Championship Fabio is leading in the moment with four 1st Places and one 2nd place which is an excellent perspective to win the 2007 Quad Championship in Angola. At the Inter-Series Fabio gets sponsored by Muxima bed & Breakfast and he is geared to show his potential to the Namibian mx-fraternity. Together with some of the best Quad-riders from Botswana, South Africa and of course Namibia this category is also a true international Class!
