HEARTS OF MOROCCO
The intention is to link the race to the areas crossed by the rally with local events, to encourage local populations and to develop their arts and crafts, the various associations for the disabled, women and other underprivileged people. There will be a medical centre manned by volunteers for treating and advising individuals and their families.
With regard to the numerous local associations, we have decided in conjunction with the local authorities and the owners of the hotels involved, to organise a contest aiming at promoting the best project presenting all the local associa- tions on this occasion. The winner of this inter-association competition will be awarded the donations collected during the event. The idea is to encourage the candidates to work hard on their respective projects.
This first race will be held around Merzouga over a one-week period with 6 special stages including 5 of 300 km long and a 6th one with +/- 150 km on the last day before the prize-giving. A prologue (+/- 15 km) will be run on the Sunday in order to determine the starting order in each category. One night will be in a bivouac with Me hamid returning to Merzouga the following day.The main investment in this project will be hiring the helicopter and the ambulances for medical assistance. The contract will be annexed to the advertising so as to give competitors the guarantee that SAFETY is our main concern.
Together with the race, there will be a raid, excursions and entertainment every day – that is music, dance, crafts etc. …..
The philosophy of this race is to inform as many people as possible on the local ways and customs but also the problems and difficulties that the inhabitants in these remote and isolated zones encounter.
Rather than importing from Europe or elsewhere what can be found in Moroc- co, we have decided to work alongside the local economic players; we suggest that the competitors of the rally, the raid and/or the spectators of the event, help us to buy locally the supplies of basic necessities needed for the schools, associations, disability centre, for the nomadic villagers etc… This principle of “local contentment” will have a double impact by helping the local economy to the greatest satisfaction of the underprivileged populations of the areas crossed during this event.
The arrival and departure zones will be scrupulously supervised by the organi- zation.
For those competitors in need of repairs or maintenance, there will be a well-de- fined area for this purpose. Moreover, they will be obliged to place a canvas sheet under the vehicle to avoid soiling the ground. Dustbins will be available to recover waste. Each evening, the vehicles will be parked in a well-defined area.
