FOR AN EXCEPTIONAL SITUATION, EXCEPTIONAL MEASURES
One of the strengths of the AFRICA ECO RACE is its team made up of enthusiasts, professionals and former pilots allowing great responsiveness whilst adapting to different situations and challenges.
SENEGAL AS AN EXAMPLE
Senegal has set up an effective response to Covid 19. According to a study carried out in September and based on various criteria, the American magazine “Foreign Policy” mentions Senegal as being an example, highlighting its experience in the fight against epidemics. Currently, the AFRICA ECO RACE is working in close collaboration with the various local authorities to facilitate the arrival of participants in Dakar, upon invitation. As for the return of participants from Dakar at the end of the Rally, Senegal currently has no ongoing restriction.
The departure of all the vehicles of the caravan will be in the south of France. The vehicles will embark on a cargo ship, direction Dakar. The checks will be lightened and will therefore be considered pre-checks. Competitors in the race, once registered, must complete a "technical pre-checks" file and return it to the organization. For everyone's comfort, the entire teams will therefore not have to travel to the port of embarkation. Only drivers can come and drop off the vehicles at the port.
CHECKS IN DAKAR
Full crew and vehicle checks will take place in Dakar on January 2nd and 3rd, 2021. On January 4th, 2021, all vehicles will reach the 1st bivouac in Saint Louis, before starting the race, on the morning of January 5.
