The Roses des Sables Trophy

"The competitors leave from the Basque Coast and cross Spain to the Strait of Gibraltar then onto the Moroccan coastline and Tangier, to the desert in the south-east of the country.

There are six stages including the famous 48 hours marathon autonomy stage. And of course, there are the dunes, majestic mountains of golden sand at the gates of the Sahara.



Inspired by the spirit of African rally-raids, the Roses des sables Trophy excludes any notion of speed. Equipped with a valuable road book and a simple compass, drivers and co-drivers evolve each day at their own pace, respecting two imperatives: the checkpoint controls along the route and the maximum number of kilometres allowed for each stage. "
