In view of the global health crisis and the restrictions imposed recently in the Kingdom of Morocco it is impossible to maintain the recces planned for September, it is with a heavy heart that the AFRICA ECO RACE has decided not pass through the Kingdom of Morocco in 2021 and to establish a new format: SENEGAL - MAURITANIA - SENEGAL - DAKAR.
After the administrative and technical checks in a French port in December 2020, all the vehicles of the caravan will embark on a cargo ship, direction Dakar. Participants will reach the capital of Senegal in early January 2021 to collect their vehicles before setting off for this new African adventure.
From January 5 to 17, 2021, participants will take new tracks across Senegal and Mauritania for a grand finish at the Lac Rose podium on January 17.
As for the race, it will be an opportunity to discover a parts of Senegal few have had the chance to do before, and race on the unique laterite tracks lined with baobabs.
In Mauritania, the competitors and participants of the AFRICA ECO RACE will discover new majestic landscapes that only Africa can offer with rolling tracks and more sandy portions. They will evolve in the heart of the Saharan desert and its pink, yellow or white dunes, its sinuous canyons between tabular plateau, its oases of greenery nestled between black sandstone cliffs. One of the few countries where one can still taste the infinite spaces and the illusion of unconditional and limitless freedom.
As for registration fees, despite the logistical challenge and the additional costs that this represents for the AFRICA ECO RACE, the organization has decided to maintain them: the prices therefore remain unchanged.
The architecture of this new route will allow cost control and flexible logistics since the mileage of the assistance route will be halved.
Everything will therefore be done to experience and share an unforgettable and exceptional 2021 edition - more specific information and all the logistical details available shortly
