Sunday: departure from Marrakech and drive across the Atlas Mountains to Ouarzazate for lunch and on to Boumalne Dades for the night, through the Valley of the Pinks/Roses.
Sunday afternoon: Vallée des Roses, we're off road and following a beautiful track
Monday : drive to Erfoud, lunch, afternoon prologue (how to read a road book, drive in sand and a 3 hours rally using your navigational skills)
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday: Follow the roadbook to checkpoints: this requires a bit of concentration both to navigate and drive across varied terrains. Also plenty of time to admire the sceneris and take photos.
A moment of relaxation for lunch
Lovely clean hotels in the desert by the dunes of Merzouga
Finding all the checkpoints doing the least amount of kms will lead you to victory
