A great opportunity to test your offroad-truck in the Desert.

You want to learn how to drive in the desert with your own off-road truck? You want to take part in a desert-rally? You want to test your race-truck under rally-conditions, with professional service, mechanicals, medical-services, a dvd-movie about your participation and many more?

From October 7th-21st 2006 the UK- and German-based rally-truck-specialist "marathonlogistic" is offering an exclusive "Truck Challenge" for rally novices and professionals in the course of the "Erg Oriental Sahara Rally 2006" in Tunisia.

The "Truck Challenge" want to give truck rallying novices and professionals the opportunity to experience a "real" desert rally under less strenuous conditions - without the must of a FIA-License.

Under the supervision of expert truck-rallydrivers, participants will learn the technique of driving in the desert sands, GPS and roadbook navigation and lots of rally-tricks - and will take part every second day in a special challenge trial on sections of the original rally route.

Competitors will not be left to their own resources. The participants in the "Truck Challenge" will be looked after during the whole of the rally and will receive a "All-round Carefree Package".

In case of a breakdown this includes a recovery service not just to the camp, but all the way to the port of Genova (Italy), and on request "marathonlogistic" will even return trucks to the home-country of the participants.

Depending on the selected package, participants will - in addition - receive mechanic-hours, a secure supply of fuel, medical-service, temporary use of a satellite telephone and even a 15-minute, professionally personalized produced film about the participation in the event.

For the professionals among the participants in the rally, "marathonlogistic" provides an additional recovery service, which guarantees recovery and return transport as far as the port of Genova. As a bonus the recovery service also includes 5 mechanic-hours.

And anyone who would like to experience the rally from a privileged position - but without driving personally - can reserve one of the exclusive passenger places in an original rally recovery truck. You will accompany the recovery truck in its exciting operations and will be right there at the heart of all the rally happenings.

The Dates:

Start in Genova/Italy: October 7th, 2006
Rally in Tunisia: October 9th-19th
Back in Genova/Italy: October 21st, 2006
