Maroc Classic 2024 – Stage 3 : Ifrane – Merzouga

2024 – 29ème Rallye Maroc Classic

ETAPE 3 : IFRANE – MERZOUGA / tuesday 5 mars 2024

The third stage of this 29th Morocco Classic Rally, known to regulars, will allow you to enjoy a visual and thermal shock of which only Morocco has the secret. From the few mounds of snow in Ifrane we headed south and from the gates of the Sahara towards Merzouga.
Although this route is one of the key stages of many editions of the Rally, we were able to discover new asphalt roads allowing us to escape from a rather rolling route and to offer two special regularity tests to spice up the ranking.
With temperatures close to 0°C this morning, but under a blue sky without any clouds, we reached Middelt for lunch at Kasbah Asmaa, another historic stop of the rally before reaching the palm groves of the Ziz gorges leading to Merzouga where temperatures are around 25°C this evening.
For the night, participants enjoy a luxury bivouac specially set up in the desert where a festive aperitif and dinner are on the program for an evening that will recall Cyril’s motorcycle exploits on African tracks!
After this stage with the strong contrast that only Morocco can offer, tomorrow we will have to cover the longest stage of the rally towards the High Atlas, for a decisive day which will offer 4 special stages and certainly some upheavals in the general classification.
