Prologue – Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles 2016
Wednesday, March 23, 2016 14:00
Today, the teams embark on the first challenge of their official journey – the Prologue. This is a large-scale practice exercise with no major difficulties: flat easy terrain, not much sand. For most of the Gazelles, the prologue does not count toward the rankings and is only used to determine tomorrow’s starting grid. But for the EXPERT class competitors, this will begin the competition – any penalty kilometres earned during this short leg could make all the difference in 8 days.
