The 23rd edition of the Morocco Classic – La Route du Coeur will take place from Saturday 12 to Saturday, March 19, 2016 and will borrow a route combining the stages that have made the success of the rally.
Besides the usual departures and arrivals from Casablanca to Marrakech, we will stay two nights in the beautiful Hotel Michlifen at Ifrane, before taking the direction of southern Morocco.
We will go deep into into the Middle Atlas « Gouraud » cedar’s forests and will most certainly receive visit of very lovable monkeys before competitors will compete on the circuit route around Lake Dayat Aoua, resort of the royal family.
No bivouac this year but we will stay in Erfoud, a real « oasis”, base camp for all shipments to the dunes of Merzouga.
We will then go west through the Todra and we reach the Atlantic ocean in Agadir after a step in Ouarzazate.
Lunch at the Gazelle d’Or in Taroudant, mythical place where celebrities like to visit, followed the very noticeable special stage « Argana”.
This road will be the judge of that 23rd edition and will leave it up to competitors to express their talents while respecting the imposed average speeds and certainly will have an air of revenge for those who had not managed to take its measure during its introduction to the course in 2015.
After a night in Agadir, Marrakech towards our arrival city, we will cross the High Altas by the Tizi-N-Test recently re-surfaced.
This famous route carved on the side of rocks in the 30s and peaking at 2100m altitude will offer spectacular views of the Souss valley and the peaks of the Atlas at the turnings of its many hairpins before the Red City and its wonderful facilities operate for the traditional end of rally festivities.
