|Merzouga Rally: Merzouga Rally Formula Raid - A race idea for everybody|
Who has never dreamt of challenging the desert or race the Dakar rally? The "Rally Raid formula" studied by the Italian organizer Edo Mossi offers the possibility to teams and riders of every level to take part to a true African Rally in security and at an affordable price. Usually there are two obstacles for those who want to race an African rally: the technical and physical preparation, required by this kind of races, and the entry fee.
From a technical point of view, the vehicles don’t need a specific preparation to take part to the "Merzouga Raid" and it’s not required the sports licence for the rider. Moreover it’s possible to arrange the transport of the vehicle through the organization or rent it on spot.
Regarding the entry fee, the Raid offers the possibility to take part to the "Merzouga Rally" at an affordable price and in security thanks to all the logistics and medical services of the race (heliambulance, ambulance, 4x4, doctors riding a bike on the rally route).
The Merzouga Raid is open to motorcycles, quads and SSV, which allows fans to get closer to the discipline in safety, without being involved at a competitive level. As in previous editions, the Raid Tour is limited to 8 riders only, with an expert guide accompanying the group. Due to its success, riders again have the opportunity to experience the magic of an African rally in peace and security.
Ideal to do solo or with friends, the raiders will ride the rally course at their own pace. All vehicles will be equipped with E Track, the satellite tracking system that allows the PC Course to monitor in real time all the participants on track and all raiders will benefit from the logistical support of the Rally organizers.
If you want to experience the thrill of the race, but you don’t have a sports licence, the Ride is your formula. It’s perfect to learn the navigation with road book and GPS, riding on the rally course at your pace.
The Merzouga Ride allows the riders to take part to the race without the chronometer. The riders will have to respect the Technical and Sports Regulations, managing the roadbook as well as a starting time. At the end there will be a special classification based of the regularity, the respect of the imparted times and the regulations.
