Thirteen years ago the concept of this event was created by Bernd Kroemer, received with enthusiasm by the Windhuk Moto Cross Club, in this case one must mention Eckhard Waldschmidt, the President of the WMCC in those days, who strongly supported this endeavour and ever since the "Inter-Series" has grown by leaps and bounds.
The titel "Namibia International Champion" has got a very good reputation in mx-circles all over the world and lots of riders that came to fame, had their first international success in Namibia. The latest one, the reigning “Namibia International Champion” Pela Renet from France won the 2009 MX3 Worldchampionship title. That speaks for itself, right?
