|Libya Rally: Amateur Desert Rally will move to Morocco - start in April 2013.|
After the cancellation in 2012, there will be a new [ LIBYA RALLY ]. "Since the disarming of the rebels hasn’t been completed yet and since the elections will take place soon, it’s maybe a little too early to return to its "homeland" Libya" said organizer Gert Duson. "But since waiting and doing nothing isn’t our style either, we’ve decided to let our "rally in excile" take place in another guestland Morocco."
"And this time we’re preparing something unique: With 200 participants (race/ raid/ discovery/ assistance) we’ll be travelling to the far south of Morocco. The battle zone of LR2013 will be largely situated in the triangle Zagora-Merzouga-Mhamid, one of the most beautiful and most divers landscapes of Northern Africa.
Typical for the 2013 edition of the rally will be the enormous diversity when it comes to race tracks. Meandering dirt roads, fast tracks, big and high dunes (Erg Chebbi & Erg Chigaga), salt plains and gravel. "This country just has it all, even WRC-style mountain roads on gravel in the High Atlas Mountains. The rally will finish in style in Morocco’s most legendary Royal City Marrakech" said Gert Duson.
To get the exact planning and a detailed description of the stages you’ll have to wait a little bit longer until the first reconnaissance tour, which will take place this summer, is completed. "What we can tell you already is the timeframe of the rally: Scuteneering in Ouarzazate on Thursday 18th April 2013, followed by a 7 days race from Friday 19th till Thursday 25th April 2013."
