Transafricaine: New category for more recently vehicles 4x4.

In addition, at the request of many potential competitors, the head of the Transafricaine Classic Rally, Patrick Zaniroli, comes to decide to add a new category - Group 6 - opened to the more recent traditional vehicles 4x4. Thus, the owners of 4x4 of the years 1997 to 2004 will not remain on the quay and will see an occasion there to enlarge the rows of the amateurs impassioned by this new African challenge. They will be able to discover in their turn, the secrecies, the beauty and the pleasure of control on tracks to rejoin Paris to Dakar.

You are numerous to want to register you with a great rally raid who posts already complete. It is the ransom of success, I imagine the disappointment of "left for account", those which will see leaving the train without them, but there are other ways of rejoining Paris in Dakar thanks to the TransAfricaine Classic.

In Raid category and Assistance

The competitors must have the same equipment as the other categories, with exception of arch and helmet, which are only recommended and left with the choice of each one since these vehicles are not in race.

Possibility of change team-member with semi-course

Still a new facility for those which would wish to take part in Transafricaine Classic, but whose profession does not enable them to have time necessary to leave: It is now possible to change team-member with semi-course. At the request of certain between them, the FFSA (French Federation of the Automobile Sport) authorized us to create an additive in this direction. If you miss time to go to Dakar, it is henceforth possible to leave and/or rejoin the race to change team-member at the time of the day of rest in Chinguetti on November 12,2006.
