The 'Adventure Raid': a worthy category on its own

Are you in the mood for adventure and want a taste of rally driving but would prefer to experience it without the stress of the chronometer? Are you curious about the atmosphere in the bivouac in the evening when the racers arrive and the mechanics get to work? Would you like to learn how to drive and navigate in the desert without immediately investing in expensive racing equipment? Well, the Adventure Raid might be your cup of tea!

No time pressure, no stress, flexible daily distances, being able to enjoy the unique beauty of Morocco and, since driving is often done in small groups, a lot of fun.

New: As of 2024, you no longer start after the last race participant as was the case in the past, but you leave shortly after breakfast via parallel tracks. At your own pace, you cover about 70% of the race kilometres and arrive in the bivouac via a shortcut or a small stretch of tarmac.  

No less than 4 crew members are fully at your disposal for help, extra explanations or, for example, a course in dune driving. Of course, you can also count on the assistance of sweeper trucks and/or helicopters if needed.

The Adventure Raid category 2024 is open to all types of vehicles: cars, trucks, SSVs and motorbikes. For the latter (motorbikes), some off-road experience is a must. Also next year, the MDC will be part of the Yamaha Ténéré Spirit programme. Those who register for this will also get a full day of off-road training for free, under the guidance of Loïc Minaudier, winner of the past Morocco Desert Challenge together with his pilot Serrradori.
