|Africa Race: The "Real Dakar" will be first round of 2011 Wildcat Trophy.|
By finishing on the second place of the "Africa Eco Race" 2010, Jérôme Pelichet and Eugénie Decré proved that a Bowler/QT Wildcat can be honoured in major African races. A fantastic car, motivated drivers and a spirit well anchored in the values of the rally raid. Success is there for the Wildcat Trophy - a race within the race. Initiator of this trophy, born four years ago, Eugénie Decré comments the common values of Africa Eco Race and Wildcat Trophy.
Just like this year, the Africa Eco Race will kick off to the 2011 Wildcat Trophy season. "Wildcats" felt particularly comfortable on the 2010 edition and we really enjoyed. The route was magic from the first to the last kilometres. Magnificent landscapes, sand, driving, and real navigation (unfortunately less privileged nowadays on most of rallies).
"We shall remember for a long time the quality of the stages, the flavour of the African bivouacs and the warm welcome of the crossed countries. For 2011 edition, participants of the Trophy have already widely answered favourably and this first round of the future season will be a hard contest" Pelichet said.
As "Africa Eco Race", Wildcat Trophy revives with the original spirit of the rally-raids where mutual help, on track or at the bivouac, are real. On the technical side, Wildcats evolves in the same philosophy as this race by proposing to beginners or to confirmed drivers the possibility to live their passion at very reasonable costs.
Two diesel and two gasoline motorisations are now available. Moreover, spare parts are easily interchangeable. This point plays a key role on the operating costs, adaptable to each budget. The Wildcat is the ideal vehicle to begin and then to progress in the discipline. Future is always very promising.
