A ROUTE DESIGNED FOR RIDING / DRIVING ENJOYMENT
 

 

 

David Castera :

“The notion of enjoyment has too often disappeared from the list of priorities of contemporary organisers. That won’t be the case in the Rallye du Maroc, rather it will be our obsession! Forget the images of stony, bumpy tracks, we will work hard to offer a balanced and enjoyable route.”

The route has been designed for your enjoyment and each day we will offer a wide range of terrain, a mix of technical, fast and sandy tracks, dunes and navigation.

A special emphasis will be put on the quality of the tracks and we will avoid, as much as possible, rocky sections that damage vehicles or that cause injuries.

SSV : THE PLEASURE OF RACING A CAR AT AN AFFORDABLE PRICE…

 

David Castera :

“I have done quite a lot of driving behind the wheel of an SSV. You get in and straight away you’re a world champion! An amateur can enter the Rallye du Maroc, it is incredibly accessible and the sensation of freedom is not unlike that of a bike. It is the best of both worlds. Up until now there’s been twenty-three on the start line. In the short term there will be 50 or so, because the notion of enjoyment I talked about earlier is completely in phase with SSVs.”

SSV, the car category accessible to all, continues to evolve. In addition to racing alongside the bikes and quads and away from the cars and trucks, SSVs will also have refuelling every 100 kilometres and an assistance point per special, allowing you to embark on this adventure in total serenity and with reduced preparation costs.

 

THE ENDURO CUP: THE BIKE CATEGORY TO DISCOVER RALLY RAID…

 

David Castera :

“The Rallye du Maroc is the shortest, the most economical, the closest to Europe, the one where the distances aren’t excessive. In a word, the most accessible rally!

I know the world of enduro well and the things that stop them trying their hand at rally raid. It is why on Enduro Cup we must simplify the preparation.
Turn up with two tyres, two mousses and the right gearing and a device for reading the road book. It’s all you need.”

The Rallye du Maroc in the ENDURO CUP class is the perfect way of taking your first steps in rally raid. A short format, reasonable daily distances, no riding at night, a different route than for the cars and trucks, refuelling every 100 kilometres, a light bike with few modifications, all the ingredients for a successful first experience in security!

The Enduro Cup will once again navigate with the Color Paper Road Book this year. The idea is to allow the riders to better understand the use of and navigation with the Road Book.

 

A ROUTE INCORPORATING LOOPS FOR IMPROVED SAFETY…

 

David Castera :
“On most rallies the assistance crews cover 500 to 600 kilometres per day and the competitors long liaisons. Both are a source of risk and fatigue.
In the continuity of the concept born in Morocco we will continue run loops, for increased enjoyment and safety.”

– 5 stages in loops at the heart of the event, so that assistance crews can relax and take advantage of the bivouac.
– 0 km maximum for the assistance crews to drive over the entire Rally du Maroc.
– 300 km of liaison stages for the competitors over the whole rally.

A CONVIVIAL ATMOSPHERE AT THE HEART OF THE BIVOUAC…

David Castera :
“The conviviality of the discipline on the bivouacs is an important point. We are going to create a competition area in the heart of the assistance park with mats, chairs, bar, so that all the participants can meet up once they return from the track so that they can exchange, continue or repeat the race and all this in a convivial atmosphere.”

If all the categories don’t cross each other on the track, the bivouac, thanks to a dedicated area, allows the whole caravan to get together and share the day’s adventures. This year again, no hotels are available but a bivouac for all in tents for 7 to 8 consecutive nights. The “night” space with the tents will be far away from the space dedicated to the participants for more tranquillity.

This dedicated area called “the oasis” will have a very special place this year as it will be located in the heart of the assistance park for better accessibility. The briefings will take place there and a large screen will be installed where the images of the rally will be shown.

NAVIGATION AT THE HEART OF THE RALLYE DU MAROC…
 

 

David Castera :

“After the colour road-book, the road-book distributed in the morning, it is now time to test the electronic road-book. The Rallye du Maroc will allow us to do a dress rehearsal before the Dakar!”

Navigation is the keystone of the rally-raid, a feature that sets it apart from traditional rallies. The electronic road-book will allow us to stop distributing paper and to give this famous road book in the morning before each start for a better confidentiality.

On the other hand, the Rallye du Maroc, run shortly before the Dakar, allows you to test all the new features that will be in force and therefore to familiarise yourself with them.
