THE RAID BY AFRICA ECO RACE
An excellent alternative to competition for lovers of cross country motorbike, quad, car or truck (stock or prepared). The “raiders" will learn or hone their skills in navigation, crossing and reading the road books. They will also be watching the competitors while racing at specifically selected locations, while enjoying the beautiful scenery that only Africa can offer. Friendliness, authenticity, human and sporting values will be widely highlighted on a course where sensations and discoveries are a priority.
Driving at their own pace, without a chronometer, the purpose of RAID is to allow everyone to go after their own adventure, discovering other countries in a unique atmosphere.
