4x4 Competition - Desert Raid 2015

Sand, sand and more sand!

 

The Desert Raid is an orienteering and navigation event that up until now has been held in the Tunisian Grand Erg Oriental.

 

From the 11th to the 17th of October 

In 2015 for safety reasons, the race will take place in Morocco, through the three southern ergs: Chebbi, Chegaga and Ouzina. The course will follow the tracks that the Dakar couldn’t use. The characteristics and spirit of the Desert Raid are 100% present. 

How does it work?

This competition is designed so that 4x4 fans can enjoy their passion to the fullest, whatever their level.

The participant chooses their own level of difficulty, which makes the Desert Raid a made to measure competition. It begins with the most basic technical level, thanks to the numerous waypoints.

5-stage course.

Participants set their own challenge by covering as fewer kilometres as possible. Driving skills and strategy are essential here; major preparations, speed and improvisation are of secondary importance.
