BMW Motorrad International GS Trophy 2016 Southeast Asia ///
The BMW Motorrad International GS Trophy is an enduro challenge that is second to none.
This year, 57 happy finalists in a total of 19 international teams will cross northern Thailand and compete against each other in intensive daily stages and numerous special stages.
The seven daily stages lead around Chiang Mai, along the border to Myanmar, through remote areas and demand everything from man and machine. After a monsoon-like rain at the beginning of the week, the temperatures are glowing hot. The winner of the International GS Trophy is South Africa, closely followed by Germany and Great Britain, who share second place. The special highlight in the starting field is the first international women’s team in the history of the International GS Trophy.
The daily experiences at the limit “in the middle of nowhere” touch very deeply, very genuinely and authentically, show breathtaking insights into Thai culture and let international friendships develop. The International GS Trophy is accompanied online by a worldwide and euphoric community, which is excited about every stage.
REALIZE is part of the team that is dismantling a complete set-up consisting of tents, workshop, catering and everything that goes with it in order to get it out of the ground again at the end of each day’s stage. REALIZE also supports the logistics, the procurement of material and driver equipment in advance and the support of the participants and the entire team on site.
Our involvement will also make it possible for 114 brand new BMW R 1200 GS cars, which have been individualised for the drivers, to drive through the Thai jungle for seven days.
