Tuareg Morocco Rally: 2009 Entries closed for Motorbikes Category.

In 2008 the organisation of the "Tuareg Rally" in Morocco saw that their new improvements to handle the larger size of the Tuareg Rally were effective. The response they had to the Rally, the tracks, the atmosphere and the competition have been very good. With this experience, the organisers aim to increase the size of the Tuareg Rally again to include more drivers.

The tracks will be as varied as the years before. Compared to other rallies, the rally will attach again importance to difficult off-road stages. The huge dunes of the Erg Chebi and the beautiful canyons of the High Atlas will be part of the Rally again. For reasons of safety, 5-6 emergency Doctor and paramedic teams will follow the Rally. The concept of reducing the danger by reducing the speed on difficult tracks, and the fast response of the medical teams using mobile phones and fast assistance tracks will not be changed.

Good value for money. The necessary modifications for vehicles will be minimal and the same as last year. In order to spread the costs for the service teams, the organisation will make sure the number of service teams will not increase. As a consequence they have stopped the entry of new motorbike service teams for the Tuareg Rally 2009. New entries in the motorbikes group will only be possible using established service teams.

In October the organisation will start their first preetour. The aim of this preetour will be the discovery of new tracks and documentation of them in a Roadbook. This Roadbook will then be checked in our second preetour in February, a few weeks before the Rally.
