Vehicles

What vehicle to choose for you journey is totally your choice dependant upon where you are going and what you want to use it for.  Whether it be for Mongolian Rally, Motorscape Challenge, a number of other banger type rallies or maybe even an amateur race of sorts in Morocco, known as the Maroc Challenge.

 

This deveiates from those professional pursuits of the likes of the desert races like the Dakar Rally, Silk Way RallyRally Morocco & The Baja 1000 and the World Rally Championships (WRC), let alone any types of Ice Racing, Supercross or World Touring Cars.
