Few questions to the organization :
Will there be a 2012 Heroes Legend rally ?
With great pride and excitement we can say YES, we are already in full preparation for the 2012 event. Thanks to our sponsors, participants and finalizing entry's, we have all the confidence we need to make this 6th edition a great success.
Is there any news ?
Yes there is ! If a A 2 weeks rally is too long to combine with running your business or because there just isn't enough spare time, we have the solution for you !
We have this year work a shorter version concentrated on 8 days. (October 7-14, 2012).
Off course the normal Event will be the usual 15 days, but parallel to the 15 days rally we will have an 8 days event through Mauritania and Senegal.
"8 days", 100% desert !
Vehicles will be shipped and the participants will start with the rest of the caravan fin the 1st stage in Mauritania.
Why did you choose Mauritania as the starting point for the "8 days" event ?
Because Morocco is nowadays easily accessible alone and a lot of raids and rallies of all kinds take place there all year. We want to do something different and give people a better challenge. This way you will be able to feel the magic of the sahara Desert first hand, in an area which still presents you with untouched Dunes and an environment which is not disturbed by tourists.
What about safety in Africa ?
Some countries are very affected by the disinformation on the real situation in their country. Mauritania for example welcome us with open arms and will supervise us all along the route. We elaborated the route with the local authorities to avoid the zones which could be risky as for example, the east part along the border with Mali. We"ve been there already several times and everything went very well. There is no reason not to enjoy this magnificent country and its 'magic' desert.
