The Objectif Dunes team was created in 1987. Entirely composed of people working in Airbus, this team of pilots, both amateurs and professionals but all passionate about racing, has being running for rallye-raids each year for over 25 years. Their main characteristic: trying to apply in the automobile sector the technologies developed for aircraft.
The least we can say so far this year is that the participants have really benefitted of the preferential rates which were only till June 30th. As a result, at the AFRICA ECO RACE® office, registrations rife in and it is now obvious that the 2015 edition will be a grand cru with a lot of newcomers. Indeed, since Jean Louis SCHLESSER announced his retirement at the end of the 2014 edition of AFRICA ECO RACE®, after winning six editions, a lot of contenders want to take the place of the «Boss», therefore we should have a high-standard pack fighting for victory. In parallel, press conferences in Europe are nearly over. It is always a very privileged moment for the organizers to get to know, meet up and share with new participants.
The count-down has started to benefit of the 1st preferential rates and will end on June 30th 2014. Registrations are already arriving and we can point out an international growth of AFRICA ECO RACE® as a car team from United Arab Emirates and a biker from England will be part of the adventure for the next edition. In order to continue in that way, René METGE which just got back from his first recos in Morocco, will continue his campaign in Europe to present the Rallye and meet potential participants.
