This years International Six Day Enduro is happening in two weeks an no other at my home town in Greece
Greece is a true paradise for Enduro enthusiasts. The variety of the ground morphology which includes rocky mountains, forests, hills, rivers and lakes, in combination with the free land accessibility, offers unlimited choice of terrain and varying difficulty.
People involved in Enduro, truly respect the environment, having an excellent collaboration with the Ecologists of our country. Greece has extremely reach fauna and flora, and their protection is always a priority when we map out a race route (track).
Serres is one of the most important commercial centers of North Greece. It has easy and fast access from Macedonia Airport (Salonica) and Igoumentisa Port, through the new Egnatia Highway. The rich natural beauty of the Prefecture of Serres, like Lailias mountain and Kerkini Lake (protected by Natura 2000) in combination with the intense night life of the city, have made Serres a popular tourist destination.
On Lailias Mountain we can combine technical and fast tracks within one race. Mud, dust, rocks, streams, downhill and uphill trail through the forest… it is all there to compose unique scenery and an ideal terrain for Enduro.
The proportion of the motorcycle riders in comparison with the population of Greece, is one of the biggest of the world. People of Serres have proven their love for the mechanized sports and especially for Enduro. The local authorities support the Auto Moto Club of Serres in all their actions, in order to minimize ecology worries and maximize road and public safety during every race.
The ISDE 2008 headquarters, with paddocks, parc-ferme and Organizational Offices will be hosted in the Racetrack of Serres. The Track covers 600.000m2 and offers all the necessary amenities for such a great event. Moreover, the Cart Track nearby, which belongs to the Auto Moto Club of Serres, will accommodate the auxiliary services.
Our love for the Enduro, our experience in organising important events, our strong will in combination with the beautiful environment, ensure a most efficient and enthusiastic organization. The organisers of ISDE, the Auto Moto Club of Serres, have organised so far many great events (European Supermotard Championship Final 2003, WEC 2004&2005, local championships), all with extremely positive feedback.
