In the 2024 edition, the Morocco Desert Challange (MDC) will return to the long-awaited Agadir-Nador stretch, i.e. coast to coast, via the magical dunes in the Merzouga area. In recent years, MDC has established itself as one of the largest rallies outside of FIA/FIM, but which still follows their regulations and standards to 100%. Here, motorcycles will compete side by side with quads, SSV's, cars and trucks in several different categories. The bivouac and the pit area are always the start and finish, every day, which means that the distance of approx. 3000km will only be timed special stages. An incredibly challenging rally putting the highest demands on you as a driver and your equipment. This rally is usually the stepping stone before taking the leap to W2RC - World Rally-Raid Championship. AARD Racing will be on the start grid in April 2024 to meet the challenge head on, we are therefore currently looking for companies that want to join in on the adventure and at the same time get unique exposure! Do not hesitate to contact us so we can look at different proposals!
The Tuareg rally, which in the 2023 edition moved from Algeria to Morocco, starts on the 19th of March 2023 and stretches about 3500km through the dunes and dried out riverbeds around Erg Chebbi in eastern Morocco. 6 special stages over 6 days through unpaved deserts and liaisons, we achieve a distance of approx. 3500km. About 1600km of these are special stages that are timed. During the day different vehicle categories consisting of motocycles, SSV's and cars will compete for space on the winding riverbeds or up the 400m high sand dunes. To help one through, we navigate with the help of a informational paper roll, called a 'roadbook'. They are very similar to the classic 'notes' you see and hear the co-driver in classic rally cars read out loud for the driver. The big difference for the MC category is that you have to do both tasks at the same time yourself. A true challenge for both man and machine when the speeds sometimes reach 180 km/h and above in the sand. The starting field can often have a drop-out of almost 50% of the starting field, making it over the finish line a big achievement in itself! AARD Racing will be on the start grid March 19th and if you want to be part of this adventure, don't hesitate to contact us today! Come, join the team!
