There is no selection process for the Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles.
The Rallye is for novices but it does also attract some professional drivers.
Every year, 75% of teams are taking on the adventure for the very first time.
SO WHY NOT YOU ?
In addition to being in good physical and mental health, you will need the following preparation
Our organization provides mandatory navigation training in order to ensure that all new Gazelles receive the same high-quality preparation. Over the course of a weekend, you will cover the theory and practice of land navigation. “Old-school” navigation will hold no more secrets for you !
Off-road driving training (theory and practice) is strongly recommended. The organization can help you find a reliable driving school or instructor.
The Rallye requires a basic knowledge of mechanics. You will need to know your vehicle and be able to change a tire, control tire pressure, check fluid levels. The rest is provided by our mechanics and included with the registration fee.
CHOOSING YOUR VEHICULE
Like 40% of teams, you can compete with your personal vehicle. The necessary modifications are simple. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with your Team Contact for more information.
You can rent a vehicle
Renting a prepped vehicle is the easiest option, as it provides a “turnkey” solution. It will cost around 7,000 Euros to rent a fully equipped 4X4 vehicle with insurance. The addresses of some good rental companies can be found in the Participation Guide.
You can borrow a vehicle
The most common scenario is a loan from a garage, car dealer or manufacturer in exchange for advertising space on the vehicle.
