THE RACE

Nicolas:”This journey is difficult. It’s not a good day for me. Tomorrow is another day.”

 

Playing the outposts, 10th place, during the first day thanks to a perfect navigation and risk taking on the 25 km of beach, the second day was quite different. 30th according to the latest information.

The tracks of the day were very rolling. After two scary moments, Nicolas decided not to take all the risks. The stages with long mileage and high speeds are not what he prefers. The more technical stage of tomorrow will be more in its strings.

As for the other participants in the rally, we note the great performance of trucks that outclass almost all cars. However, many of them have experienced mishaps with tire bursts. The high speeds, the hot weather and some rocks placed well have created a very unpleasant mix for these monsters of 1000 horses. The different categories of this race also had for their expenses.

RallyGuide2019 - MOROCCO DESERT CHALLENGE

Definitely a stage where all the power of your vehicle can be used. The entire terrain is dominated by emptiness but so much fun to drive. You’ll find yourself in an out-of-this-world landscape with large flat plains and great valleys with only little vegetation. Mainly sandy tracks and gravel paths with a bit of fesh-fesh. Overtaking will be easy today as there is plenty of space. Also navigation will not be so hard but you have to be very alert on the mentioned dangers in the road book because you’ll be approaching them at high speed.
