2015 Edition Presentation

4x4 Competition - 4L Trophy presentation 2015

A mythical car, a compass and the desert ...


This is the 17th edition of the 4L Trophy. This raid is more than a simple race. It’s not about speed; it’s based on orientation skills. The major challenge is crossing the finishing line, and to achieve this, participants will discover the full meaning of mutual aid.

Over 10 days time stand still and you forget your “other life”. Against a backdrop of fabulous landscapes you progress, help each other out and share the experience, you emerge forcibly different.

Ahead of them the teams have a 10 day rally of almost 6,000 kilometres on the roads and tracks of France, Spain and Morocco towards the final destination of Marrakesh.


The adventure kicks off with 2 days at the Start Village in Biarritz over the18thand19th February.

This is where all the administrative and technical checks are carried out by the organizers. Then, from the19th of February the to the1st of March,it's off toMorocco for the BIG adventure: desert tracks, dunes, breathtaking scenery, compass navigation and inevitable moments stuck in the sand! Not to forget the overnight camps, Moroccan food, campfires and mechanical repairs. True adventure !

The finish and the prize-giving diner will be held in Marrakech on the 28th of February.
