Rabat- Over 160 teams from 33 countries will participate in the 24th “Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles”, which will be held from March 15th to 29th in Morocco.
Organized by the international event agency Maïnga, the “Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles” is the only one of its kind exclusively for women. The motorsport event will be held in the Moroccan desert.
This women-only off-road race will feature the participation of 320 women in 160 teams from 33 countries. The racers will be making their way along 2,500 kilometers of desert terrain.
Participants will drive 4X4 cars, trucks, quads and motorcycles across the Saharan desert using traditional navigation methods. The test is not against time, but against the cunning of fellow competitors trying to drive the shortest distance between two points using only a compass and map to find their way.
The winner of the rallye will earn €15,000 to be donated to the charity of their choice.
The Gazelles Rallye, which has been granted the environmental label ‘Iso 14001’, also supports the Moroccan humanitarian organization, Coeur des Gazelles. This annual event offers desert village residents medical caravan treatment, supported by Total. They receive dental care, funded by Volkswagen, and cataract operations, supervised by the Atoll teams.
