Understanding the rankings

Around the rally

As a reminder, the Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles du Maroc is based on navigation, not on speed. The winning team is the one that reaches the most checkpoints while driving the shortest distance.

Each leg has an ideal distance. Any extra kilometres driven are converted into penalty points. For example, on a leg with an ideal distance of 215 kilometres, a team that drives 230 kilometres will gain 15 points, or 15 kilometres.

Other fixed penalties, converted into kilometres, may be added to these “distance” penalties:

  • Failure to reach a CP earns the team a fixed penalty as listed in the road book of the leg.
  • Losing the road sheet means a 40-kilometre penalty.
  • Not wearing a helmet and/or seat belt is worth 10 kilometres for the first offense.
  • Mechanical assistance out on the terrain costs the team 200 penalty points.

After registering the day’s results, each team has one hour to bring their vehicle to the mechanics area or closed vehicle park. After that time, a penalty of one kilometre per minute is applicable.

The penalty system is the same for E-Gazelles VINCI Immobilier Class. However, given the high possibility of power failure, an electric vehicle can be brought back to the bivouac without being Unranked, unlike other vehicle classes…

#FreeNasrin

Dominique Serra has dedicated this 29th edition to Nasrin Sotoudeh – prominent Iranian lawyer and human rights advocate – who has been sentenced to 38 years in prison and 148 lashes for “inciting corruption and prostitution” by defending women who took off their headscarves in public.

I encourage everyone to sign the petition for her release.
