The time has come: the SAHARA-RALLYE GRAND ERG is having it´s 10TH ANNIVERSARY!!!

And this is really asking for the special thing ! After intensive studies about the last 9 rallyes, as well as the feedback to our GE-2014 survey, we are planning
the big thing:

is gonna be the motto of the GE-2015:

  • We´ll take on the big dunes of the southern military sector and are going to visit El Borma
  • According to our survey´s output, there will be TWO 2-day-marathon-stages,
      this time even with scheduled refule-stops
  • We´ll try and out-run the 2000-km-special-stage-mark
  • In addition to the "traditional" tourist-trip, we´ll offer a motorbike-challenge
  • The Challenge-Class will be off the leash: up to 100% race-tracks (as you choose)

To cut a long story short: as MUST for every desert-driver!!!

Once more, we´ll offer a customized event for everybody´s demands, from "just want to scent the desert spirit" up to "the hardest thing, i´ve ever seen".

Finally, we´re back!!!

Since yesterday (sunday) all participants and organization-members are home safely according the latest update. ALL - sounds good, as this was the top target !!!

What is lying behind us is 2 weeks of rally, 4 days of sand-storm, many kilometres of desert, one stitched head-cut ...

... a more than fair race (really an extraordinary culture of giving each other a hand - otherwise i wouldn´t mention it) ...

... probably the most repair-manhours and spareparts-flight-miles in the history of the GE ...

... a Tunisian country, which was peaceful and friendly as ever, full of laughing, welcoming faces ...

... and lots of impressions, photos, videos and voices. From "could have been a bit longer" (the overall winner with the least driving hours) up to "this was the most sandy GE ever" (an every-year-repeater, who has got to know).

Of course, the post-processing is running at full throttle right now:

  • photos are being checked
  • videos are being cut
  • reports are being typed
  • wishes and suggestions are being collected
  • dates are being negotiated
  • and-and-and-and ...

Both film-teams are running hot and some output can already be enjoyed:

As soon as there is more, we will keep you updated.

Additionally there is the daily reporting including a first set of photos on RALLY 2014 and our "infocenter" with all stage- and overall-classements as well as introduction of the participating teams on: INFOCENTER.
