Désertours has been the leading French provider of rally adventures for 30 years, and specialises in organising adventure trips and events of this kind. It is based in Ciboure, in the south-west of the country, and since its establishment in 1985, it has been led by the racing driver and motorbike racer, Jean-Jacques Rey. “The 22th 4L Trophy™ Rally will take place against the magnificent backdrop of Morocco’s Deep South. The rally is organised in the purest tradition of African endurance rallies such as Paris-Dakar. The goal is to cover each day’s rally stage using a road book, a map and a compass, while achieving each checkpoint along the way. Speed is simply not a consideration. The ranking is based on the number of kilometres travelled (so that the fewest kilometres means the best navigation), and a number of different tests such as the ability to cross sandy terrain.”
Jean-Jacques Rey, Chief executive of Désertours.
