KALAHARI RALLY 2019 WELCOMES THE ONLY LADY ENTRY FOR IRON MAN CATEGORY!
“KR19 IRON WOMEN, CHRISTINE STEINKRAUSS”
Christine will be mixing it up with the men in the “Iron Man” Category where they are not allowed any assistance from crews or mechanics through the entire rally! Christine started racing enduro since 1999, competing in the German Enduro Ladies Cup Nationals, Enduro Rally Cup and the IGE 3 Hour Enduro Championship.
In 2011, she competed in her first rally, Dalmatia Rally, with a Podium finish of 2nd in the ladies category. The combination of difficult off-road racing and off-road navigation is what attracted Christine to rally raid. Since then, Christine has competed in 14 more other rallies, and will be competing in her 15th rally at KR19 on a GasGas EC 450 F Raid.
Christine’s biggest rally raid achievement would be finishing the Africa Eco Race (The old Dakar) 3rd in the Ladies Category! Christine’s rally raid results boasts:
5 x 1st Places, 4 x 2nd and 3 x 3rd places in 14 rallies, and finishing strong in the top 10 in the other rallies!
We are excited to have CHRISTINE STEINKRAUSS from Germany competing in KR19!!!
