THE LOOP IS NOW COMPLETED
Here we are, the last road book page of the 9th edition of the AFRICA ECO RACE® closes itself.
But just before that, and before starting to prepare the upcoming 10th anniversary, an enjoyable nice little flashback with shots of nice moments and values of the 2017 AFRICA ECO RACE® which took place between December 29th 2016 and January 14th 2017.
Jean Louis SCHLESSER and René METGE are currently in Africa for the traditional pre-race work meetings with the various local administrations. The rest of the AFRICA ECO RACE® crew is busy at the headquarters doing the finals touches. Everything is on track to make this 9th edition the most spectacular one yet, with an impressive lineup, a beautiful course, a crew eager than ever to assist all the teams and a media team that is getting stronger as the start approaches.
Two months before the big start from Monaco to Dakar, the team of the AFRICA ECO RACE® is more than ever at their best to prepare for this 9th edition. Especially with a number of competitors which is growing, we have to find some solutions to ensure that the event remains perfectly organized with almost the same family spirit that animates it since its creation back in 2009.
That's it, the summer is over so back to business. September marks the countdown to the start of the 9th edition of AFRICA ECO RACE®, from the Principality of Monaco. Small reminder on what should expect the participants.
While in August, some are on holiday, others are at work. Within the AFRICA ECO RACE® team, the atmosphere is always at work in order to make this 9th edition, an adventure which will once again be memorable. Some prepare their bags, computers, cards, paper, pencils and vehicles before leaving in a few days for last recos in Africa in order to complete the course and finalize the road books. Others work hard to organize the start from the Principality of Monaco. Finally, the privileged ones, meet with beautiful persons, rather a beautiful one !
