It’s African racing time once more in Namibia. Because Namibia, represented by the Windhoek Motocross Club (WMCC), left an excellent impression within the AMU (African Motorcycle Union) organisation, by staging the 12th annual Motocross Inter-Series, Namibia was awarded to hold the 2009 AMU Motocross Championship of African Nations on 27th and 28th of June at Gallina Motocross Park.
