"We are delighted to present the "Rally Lite Desert Series 2012", a championship on 3 rounds that has met riders’ and teams’ approval" reported Mossi. "The rally series has been studied to allow amateur and professional riders to be the protagonists of this unique and fascinating sport."
"After the success of the first two editions of the Merzouga Rally; given the number of enrolled riders and nations represented, we have decided to take up a new challenge making the 3rd edition even bigger in terms of participants and vehicles. The new project aims to make the African desert closer to the off road riders" Mossi said.
"To meet their needs, this year we have created also the Rally Lite Desert Series, a championship of 3 rounds, which links the splendid green hills of Tuscany, Italy to the big dunes of the Erg Chebbi desert in Morocco via fascinating Marrakech. For next year we are aiming to organize around 4-5 races of 3-4 days each every 2 months to guarantee a continuity of t_his unique sport and visibility to the sponsor throughout the season" reported Edo Mossi
