​The 8 Stages of the Morocco Desert Challenge


The 8 Stages of the Morocco Desert Challenge

A coast to coast rally with 0 km liaison

The 2018 Morocco Desert Challenge (MDC) promises to be an adventure full of surprises. Since Morocco has so much to offer, the competitors will have the privilege of exploring as much of the Moroccan landscape as possible. In the 2018 route of the MDC, the rally drivers will compete from coast to coast, travelling from the beaches of Plage Blanche, at the Atlantic, to the Mediterranean shores. This route will consist of new bivouacs and 8 new stages.

Apart from being an adventure full of surprises, with fast tracks, technical parts, vast African plains, dunes, salt lakes and legendary Dakar stages, what is unique about the Morocco Desert Challenge is the 0 km liaisons. No other rally has this feature. Also, because it’s the 10th anniversary, there will be an 8th racing day added to the rally: a prologue on the stunning and mythical beach of Plage Blanche.
