GAZELLES PROGRAM

14:00 – Verifications

24 teams, most of them from Canada or Morocco, gather today for a final set of technical and administrative verifications at Hotel Xaluca, Erfoud.
The idyllic grounds of the Xaluca are dotted with workshops where the Gazelles will complete the various procedures and formalities that will allow them to take part in the Rallye.

The program is exactly the same as at the Allianz Riviera in Nice, and includes stickers, mechanical compliance, distribution and explanation of safety equipment (Iritrack, Sarsat), medical interview, verification of compulsory items & equipment.

17:30 – Competition briefing

LIVE NEWS

The last three teams to reach the bivouac are on the finish line: 144 (Laurene VOILLEQUIN / Laure AVELINE - Adhome Services), 143 (Leila MASSON / Monica OBERLE - Programme Alimentaire Mondial) and 166 (Stephanie PIERI-CHESNAIS / Isabelle AVIS - TRANSAVIA). They still need to hand in their road sheet and tracking devices... But a glass of Tsarine champagne is waiting for them!

The stretch from the dunes to the bivouac offers easy navigation and driving. There are even several trails leading to the bivouac.

That’s how Team 178 (Marie GUARINO / Giliane STORRER - MERSE-TRANSAC) described their feelings at the finish line, in front of the Ranking office. "We’re happy it’s over but it’s really strange to say that this is the last time we’ll be handing in our road sheet. We’re proud to have found every checkpoint of the Rallye. At first we didn’t think we could do it, but we got into it because we’re pretty competitive."

We're starting to have a good idea of who will be on the podium but aren't saying anything... we'll let you make your own predictions!

...and honking horns: it feels like the end of the Rallye! Many teams have crossed the  finish line before a crowd of photographers and cameramen. Tears, laughter, emotions, arms waving triumphantly... they are all proud of what they have accomplished. Just making it to the finish line is a exploit in itself.
