Rallye du Maroc
The Rallye du Maroc (Morocco Rally) is a marathon rally that has been brought back to life in 2013 after numerous years of inactivity as the OiLibya Rally of Morocco 2013. It was first run in 1934, and held intermittently until 1988 in a fashion similar to the Safari Rally, and again in 2013. Originally established by the Royal Automobile Club of Morocco, it is one of the more difficult automotive rallies. The 2013 race is presented by His Majesty King Mohammed VI of Morocco. In 1969 for example, 7 cars completed the course, out of a starting field of 68 vehicles.
The event was a World Rally Championship round in 1973, 1975 and 1976. The stages were varied – from shorter, but rough and challenging more typical ones to desert crossings (like in Dakar rally), which were very long, reaching even few hundred kilometers, making refueling during the stage mandatory.
