A test for all!
Allowing the best to express themselves, the Open and Enduro Cup categories to discover, and the regulars to return for the fun.
The principle of separate courses is maintained, for security, and to adapt to each race category.
A variety of terrains, importance is given to navigation.
A Marathon stage for the bikes.
An innovative course on 60% of the route.
The road books will be color-coded and on two stages will be distributed at the start.
Allowing all involved, pilots, assistance, organization, media and the local population, to rub shoulders in an authentic and comfortable Bivouac located in a unique place by the dunes.
On 70,000 square meters: assistance park, PCO, medical center, press center, competitor service, relaxation area, catering, massage, showers, toilets…. even some foosball!
Morocco, the most beautiful scenery…
From Fes to the dunes of Merzouga, through Er Rachidia and Erfoud… Participants will marvel at the beauty, richness and variety of landscapes, towns and villages, and the welcome and kindness of the Moroccans.
And the best partner!
A close collaboration, sports, logistics and economic, between the Rallye du Maroc teams and the Moroccan administrations and companies.
And also a human collaboration, with the support of the Rallye du Maroc Organization for local projects: routing of material, help with construction, formation, donations…
As proof of this strong link, the Rallye du Maroc will take place Under the High Patronage of the King of Morocco, His Highness Mohamed VI. It is an honor.
On October 3rd, we meet in Fes for the technical and administrative checks!
On October 9th… as first or last, to compete for the podium or to just finish, to have fun or prepare for Dakar.
All are winners of an important and demanding test… of a legendary edition…the 20th Rallye du Maroc!
