|Italian Baja TICKER: The "Africa Eco Race" meets Schlesser in Pordenone.|
The "Italian Baja" is not only interesting for the participants, even more the rally is also a big event for spectators and rallyfans. Inside the bivouak the organizers installed some entertainment for children, some companies presented their products like on a small fair.
Also the "Africa Eco Race" was "active" in Pordenone on Saturday: The Italian representant Matteo Castelli informed about the "Dakar"-alternative. A big surprise for Castelli: Today the AER-winner Jean-Louis Schlesser visited the tent and gave Castelli a hello.
Since 2009 the "Africa Eco Race" is the "official" alternative for whose, who want to drive a marathonrally, but in Africa instead of South America - and with less regulations like at the Dakar Rally.
Since the first AER-rally Jean-Louis Schlesser not only won the rally, he also helped the young event (organized by Dakar-legend René Metge) with his knowledge and promotion. To learn more about the rally please visit the official website at [ www.africarace.com ].
