Zamora participated in the Raid Desert Trophy as a training to prepare the Vespa Raid Maroc.
Sara García took part in the raid in preparation for the Vespa Raid Morocco, which takes place from 25 October to 1 November. Sara tells it step by step as it was passing through the rally.
1ª Stage: Ifrane – Ifrane (190 km)
We could say that, Too stone + enough gas = wheel KO.
It was a short little stage to warm. At first with a difficult navigation and tons stone. The beautiful cedar forests and lake amid high mountain posts, with heights around 2000 m., hacían el paisaje especial.
2ª Stage: Ifrane – Midelt (240 km)
Played and we hasten tire was cut short step. A fairly sharp drop around km 140, hizo que tuvieramos que hacer el resto de la etapa por asfalto. Luckily there was almost no consequences, nor for the machine or me. Until then, precious clues among cedar forests, drastic changes in terrain and very entertaining navigation. Al día siguiente nos esperaba la etapa más dura, around 400 km para llegar a pleno Erg.
Stage rough! We started the morning with a mountain track with stones crashes due to rains a couple of weeks. Then track pretty quick and river, many stone with almost 200 km to the back. Lunch stop and visit the doctor. From there, fast track with many traps, as we were going by where they train all of Dakar. Por fin, after 11 stage hours, arrived at Erfoud and how long we do this stage, It was night.
He touched skirt the Erg Chebbi in the south, to the military frontier of Algeria. Very fast tracks with easy navigation. First contact with the dunes this year and Tamarist arrival at Oasis of river sand. We passed the Rally of Roses de Sable. Return to Erfoud was for asphalt, due to a sandstorm, hasta coger de nuevo la pista pasado Merzouga hasta Erfoud.
In this estapa I relived one of the best feelings in the world, Erg Chebbi view from the top of the great duna.Gran stage beginning with new tracks for me, very fast along the Erg. Pasos preciosos con algo de piedras mezcladas con arena y muy buen ritmo. Cuando la tormenta de arena nos dio tregua, we enter the Erg Chebbi and, after nearly two hours of dunes, nos dirigimos al hotel ya de noche. Just good…
Last stage, at last. The body is already feeling the effort of the week. We had to rain and fast tracks. We started in the Citroen track to follow the river sand, I was fatal to give gas. Then we waited a tennis stones which did not look nearly anything because of the rain. After eating, fast tracks except a gorge of a river, due to rains in previous weeks, I was pretty broken, but muand fun.Close the raid with the feeling of having had a good pace, with a couple of scares in the body without any serious collateral damage. Próximo challenge…Vespa Raid Morocco.
