As wilderness go, the Sahara is a big one. The largest hot desert in the world, stretching the width of Africa, some 9 million square kilometres of rolling dunes and rock plateaus. The environment is stunning in every respect, to be able drive a rally car there is not just a challenge, but a privilege.
To witness this huge area is a once in lifetime experience, to rally out here on the other hand, that is a joy that is only really known by those that have done it.
The Sahara Challenge will select the very best bits that the desert has to offer and condense it all into a 13-day adventure, that will test the soul and leave an unrivalled feeling of triumph after one has conquered the ever-encroaching sands of the desert.
From Spain, around Morocco and back again, this is one of those trips that offers up life-affirming experience after life-affirming experience and by the time it is finished, it threatens to become an addiction.
From the dunes of Erg-Chebbi to the mighty Atlas Mountains, this is the event to leave you feeling like a Dakar Superstar. The roads are incendiary, the scenery incredible and the cities and towns that we will visit along the way are magical.
The opportunity to rally a classic car in this astounding country is one not to be missed.
We hope to see you on the start line in Spain in September 2024...
