Last year cars and trucks in "raid" section follow easier tracks or routes.
The same for the bikes just to Agadir. Then they follow us on the race tracks.

Raid section drivers hasn't FIM card-license and aren't classified at all. Non competitive. Just to fun themselves.

No problem getting publicity either.

Colour commentary spot:

"Well folks, it's certainly shaping up to become a tight battle for the leading (and only) three moto competitors in the first ever, penultimate second annual Africa Ride...

Yes viewers, there's no quarter asked and none given between the "thong" of competitors in their bout for supremacy... In fact the field is so tight... you could literally "throw a blanket over them"! Well, that sound's pretty much like they've got the bivouac side of things set up any way... "

The 3rd edition of the Africa Eco Race is on the right track … For this exceptional human and sports adventure, in the heart of Africa, do not miss the occasion…

Scrutineering will begin on December 27th, 2010. Then, competitors will start for 12 days of intense race by crossing Morocco, Mauritania and Senegal.
One more time, and for the biggest pleasure of competitors, René Metge will chose the route.

The finish will take place on January 9th, 2011 in Dakar, in the purest tradition, on the shore of the Lac Rose.

Ready to enter the race ?

Looks as if the low numbers from this year's rally has not put them off from continuing the rally at the same time as Dakar.

The Africa Race is under way, despite the low numbers. Here are a couple of interesting interviews by the "Desert Fox" ( Schlesser ) taking about Dakar and the Africa Race.

With all the talk about safety concerns in N. Africa of late, have you guys taken precautions or do you consider it bunk?

I work all over Africa and take regular biking trips to Morocco, in 5 years of working in some of the world's "most dangerous" countries, I've never had to deal with anything worse than a bit of police corruption [white man tax] and the odd mugging [not of me!]. In all honesty, countries like Nigeria, Equatorial Guinea, Angola and sometimes Ivory Coast are the ones you need to be thinking about..[Basically the Oil rich nations are the ones you are most likely to encounter hostility] North West African nations are generally pretty easy going and accommodating.

Yes, you have the issues of isolation and potential disease / medical care issues, should you get involved in something nasty, but I honestly believe the smaller scale rallies have nothing to fear from the "threat" of instable nations. Please remember that these countries have very well trodden paths for European adventurers and when passing through villages etc you very often receive a warm and excitable welcome.

True, in the bigger cities, you are more likely to encounter a chance of aggro from a minority of locals, but as a rule, I would not hesitate to join any North African rally, or get on my bike and ride to Cape Town from London!
