LEVELS OF PARTICIPATION

To facilitate the choice of your level of participation from two defined difficulty levels, we have established a set of parameters that seek to facilitate the choice.

- Both levels of participation start and end at the same geo point

- All participants will have access before the start of the trip to the tracks of both levels, which allows the participants in the morning briefing to inform the organization of the level they intend to perform at this stage.

Level 2 - Intermidiate

Intermediate level of medium difficulty. All those who already have some off-road driving experience and who want to improve their off-road driving skills through challenging mountain and desert trails of varied levels should be enrolled at this level:

Asphalt: The percentage of asphalt will be obtained after track recognition *
Basic off-road - 50% of track layout
Intermediate off-road - 50% of track layout
Total kilometers: 3,345 km, to be confirmed after track recognition *
Driving hours per day 6-8

* Track recognition is performed approximately one month prior to the event to minimize errors related to terrain changes.

Level 1 - Base

'Basic' level of reduced difficulty. All those wishing to initiate on African crossings should be enrolled at this level so that they can simultaneously improve their basic off-road driving skills on mountain and desert tracks with very varied levels:

Asphalt: the percentage of asphalt will be obtained after track recognition *
Basic off-road - 80% of track layout
Intermediate off-road - 20% of track layout
Total kilometers: 3,400 km, to be confirmed after track recognition *
Driving hours per day 6-8

* Track recognition is performed approximately one month prior to the event to minimize errors related to terrain changes.
