The AFRICA ECO RACE, an African Cross Country Rally but not only ... The caravan of the rally consists essentially of competitors with their teams, but also of press vehicles, which are more and more numerous on the AFRICA ECO RACE. This great African rally is also accessible in RAID, a “package” which only requires basic preparation of the vehicle without any notion of timing and thus of performance. There are also all members who compose the organizing team such as : Checkpoints, Timing , Medical Team but also catering, TV production team, “Malle Moto” truck, tire assistance, etc. Finally, the AFRICA ECO RACE also targets the future of the African continent through its actions of solidarity and sustainable development.
