Women leading the way
Rallye Aicha des Gazelles du Maroc 2017
A unique event: The Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles du Maroc
The Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles du Maroc is the only "women-only" off-road rally in the world.
Created in 1990, this unique event brings women between the ages of 18 and 65 from more than 30 different countries together in the Moroccan desert.
This Rally has been creating a new vision of automobile competition: no speed and no GPS, just old fashioned navigation, completely off-road: a return to the roots of Adventure.
The only requirement is determination. The women who take part in this rally—known as Gazelles—are of all ages, social backgrounds, nationalities and levels of off-road experience. Whether in a 4x4, Crossover, Quad, truck or motorbike, they all come to take part in a unique competition:
- whose competitors share the values of tolerance, solidarity and determination,
- that respects the host country and its people through the actions of the Rallye’s non-profit, Cœur de Gazelles.
- that cares about the environment: the Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles is the only motor rally in the world with ISO 14001 certification
While the Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles marks a return to the roots of adventure, it is also on the cutting edge of technology, with a satellite tracking system for optimal safety.
