Team C3 Motorcross Development Social Responsibility
C3 Shared Services sponsors local motor cross endurance development team. "Team C3 KTM" consists of brothers Darren and Nicholas Pienaar and development rider, Maxwell Hadebe.
Darren and Nicholas are well known in the Off-road and Enduro motorbike racing circle with Nicholas recently placing 3rd overall at the Bronkhorstspruit GOC Seeding Event and Darren placing 21st overall. Nicholas also recently competed in the first National Enduro for 2013 and placed 2nd overall and 1st in class.
The aim of the sponsorship is for the up-liftment of team rider of Maxwell Hadebe and to enable Maxwell to get to a competitive level with endurance riding. Max is 32 years old and became involved in the motorbike scene whilst training to become a bike mechanic with Ralph Pritchord. Max then worked as Clayton Enslin's mechanic for many years though he always wanted to get involved in racing but never had any financial backing. C3 has now made that possible. In order for Max to be able to complete on the competitive circuit he will need professional training and of course, equipment. Darren and Nicholas will be responsible for the training whilst C3 will be providing the Motorbike and the rest of the equipment. "It is our hope that Maxwell can achieve his dream of becoming a competitive motorbike endurance rider and even learn some valuable life and business skills along the way. If C3 can facilitate this dream we would be very happy as we are also avid bike riders and understand the love for the sport" said Nick Grange, technical director for C3.
