Terrain Reconnaissance 2014
"...It sounds simple but this is the desert; there’s no bakery just down the street. There’s nothing: nothing but millions and millions of stars in the inky desert sky. There are so many stars that we end up spending an hour gazing at them before realizing that the Southern Cross is over Australia right now... Nothing but the profound silence ruffled by an occasional breeze..."
No it's not an easy life...

In spite of grey weather, the threat of rain and an autumnal chill in the air, past and future Gazelles were given a warm welcome by Dominique Serra and the Quebec organizers in St-Eustache, at a charming "sugar shack" typical of "la belle province".
For future Gazelles, busy planning and preparing for the 2014 edition, this was a golden opportunity to meet some of the event organizers as well as many Gazelles from past editions...

decided to take responsible action with a commitment to quality in creating the Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles du Maroc
With its unique concept involving eco-driving
without excess speed, based on traditional navigation without GPS and for women only, the Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles du Maroc was the precursor to a new vision for auto rallies
In our constant quest for quality, the environment has always been one of our main areas of focus. In 2010, the Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles du Maroc became the first auto rally in the world to obtain international environmental certification (ISO 14001:2004).
The same approach has led us to apply our expertise and professionalism to two other unique events: the Students Challenge
(currently in its 6th year) and the Cap Femina Aventure
(3d edition in 2013).
Our priorities have always been safety
(for both participants and organizers alike) and respect for the local populations. For us, quality is more important than quantity
. Therefore, we do not want to risk our events becoming mass-produced rally-raids – we prefer them to remain the best.
For this new 2013-2014 season
, Maïenga would like to affirm the values it has always upheld - quality, respect for Morocco and its people, safety, the human conscience, environmental and social responsibility - by announcing a limit of 150 team vehicles per event
