Competition 4x4 - Go for Africa

Adventure and youth - a great mix!

Jan Huizinga set up Go for Africa in 2006, in order to combine adventure and learning. 

This teacher in mechanics has demonstrated that when you want to do something, you can! He organizes adventure courses in West Africa, and the Go for Africa Rally.

Future Dutch mechanics go to Africa, to live a great rally adventure. They give a month of their time to share with future African mechanics some of the mechanical secrets that they have learnt. This is what is called combining practice with pleasure!
