Supported by Amazon Filters, their Middle Eastern Partner EPC Solutions and Monobuoy an SPM Company, Dave Mabbs has embarked on the 11th Africa Eco Race. This desert race is a first class exhilarating rally for the riders whilst focusing on sustainable development with an emphasis on individual awareness about eco-responsibility. It spans more than 6,500km and is spread over 11 stages.
Astride his KTM450 Rally, Dave Mabbs headed south setting off from Monaco on 30th December 2018, bound for Nador in Northern Morocco. The race is due to conclude on the 13th January when he will arrive in Dakar.
Dave will be undertaking roughly 500km of off-road racing every day. With roughly 12 hours of daylight, that equates to racers having to sustain a minimum of 50kph of moving average through all of the 11 stages. Many challenges and perils await Dave and his fellow racers, as is the excitement and nervousness of riding over uncharted terrains where anything can happen.
All in all, the Africa Eco Race is as tough as rallies can get.
Here’s wishing Dave “The Best of British” as he navigates his way through the 11 stages of his African adventure and hoping he has safe winds ahead.
