THE RALLY

Categorys in The Real Way to Dakar

There are different options to participate in the Real Way to Dakar by Intercontinental Rally.

Before entering the rally you have to take several things into consideration like vehicle type, budget, support, fitness level etc.

1. THE FULL CATEGORY

This category gives you the full experience of starting in Morocco and racing all the way to the beach in Dakar.

This trip will bring you through 6.000 km of spectacular and varied terrain in Morocco, Mauritania and Senegal.

2. THE LITE CATEGORY

The lite version of the rally is still a race against the clock and other participants, but only half the distance compared to the full category. 

The lite category starts in Morocco and finishes 3.000 km later in Dahkla, just before entering Mauritania. 

This category gives you the experience of the rally but without the full distance. 

3. THE ADVENTURE CATEGORY

The adventure category will give you a choice of routes every day and the full rally experience – but without the pressure of the clock or the competition.

With help from our adventure coordinator you can decide for yourself what route you want to take to test your skills as a rally driver. 

4. THE SERVICE TEAMS

It is possible for participants to bring their own service teams when participating in the rally. As a service team you will take the service route which is (for the most part) normal (african) road.

It is also possible to buy service from the rally organisation for those participants who wants an easy plug-and-play solution.
