From Glyndebourne to Glastonbury - A social calendar for the 21st century
Rallye du Maroc Classique
16 March, 2013 - 23 March, 2013
Casablanca (Dar-el-Beida) to Marrakech
Taking place over 2,000 km of blacktop roads through spectacular North African landscapes, this is a rally that combines challenging driving with scenic beauty and fine living.
The drive passes through the imposing High Atlas and Middle Atlas mountain ranges, where precipitous climbs, hairpin bends and dizzying descents are the norm. Drivers are treated to the very best of Moroccon hospitality, as the drive encompasses some legendary hotels, such as La Gazelle d'Or in Taroudannt.
Drivers' luggage is transported each night to the next hotel on the itinerary, and the organisers supply round-the-clock technical support.
The Rally starts in Casablanca, and the route passes through major Moroccan cities - Agadir, Efroud, Ourzazate - finishing up in Marrakech, where the end of the event is celebrated with a gala dinner and prize-giving ceremony.
