A first competition briefing

NEJJACK - NEJJACK
Summary

Time to get down to business! 45 minutes before the start of the Prologue, the 312 Gazelles gather in the dining tent for a first competition briefing with Ludovic Taché, Sport Director of the Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles du Maroc. Only Team 164 (Nathalie COURREGES / Roxane LOYOLA - LE VILLAGE DES BROCANTEURS 38) has not made it for the Prologue, but is expected to reach the bivouac this evening.

They have been dreaming about it, they have been waiting for it, now here they are! Excited and stressed, the teams will start this 29th edition with a Prologue, an introduction to the rally with no major difficulties.

In the meantime, they are getting ready for the Prologue! Tools out, maps spread out on the tables, they are busy plotting the geographic coordinates provided in their road book with the help of their “magic” ruler.

This prologue does not count for the general ranking. It is used to set tomorrow’s start order. it’s short, just 50 kilometres with 3 checkpoints. You will all be in a small area today, so be careful: you could encounter other teams coming from all directions.

Today’s checkpoints close at 8 p.m. Before heading for the start line, the teams pick up a Bosch Car Service keychain with their team number for their vehicle keys, so they can be easily identified if lost or found! “I wish you all a good afternoon, and enjoy yourselves out there!

#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.
