Having competed 3 times in the biggest women only off road rally in the world, Rallye Aicha des Gazelles, taking place in the Moroccan desert every year for the last 26 years, I have come to love and admire the magnificent sceneries of South East Morocco and the hospitality of its people. I also enjoy driving difficult terrain, crevasses and dunes, while trying to find the shortest way possible between checkpoints. I love the camaraderie, all the more necessary when finding yourself in some difficult situations. I admire the vast sky at night full of stars you don’t see when living in town.
I have been a trustee of the British Moroccan Society for the last 7 years and have worked for them on a voluntary basis, enjoying creating events for members and their friends, fundraising and visiting the schools/centres we help in Morocco.
So it was logical that at some point I’d want to unite those 2 activities of rallying and fundraising and create the Rally Marrakech Sahara.
