  • Description

    The 18th International Moroccan Motor Rally began in Rabat on Wednesday (25 June). Almost half of the 105 entries are French-made cars.

    The competitors, representing 14 manufacturers from 12 countries, have to cover a total distance of 4,083 kms (2,537 miles), the last stage of which is across difficult mountain and desert tracks.

    Finnish driver M. ???Alen driving a Fiat, who took the lead in a pre-rally run from Casablanca to Rabat on Tuesday (24 June), is tipped to win the race. Other favourites include his compatriots -- Timo Makinen and Hannu Mikkola -- both driving Peugeots.

    The only threat to the Finnish trio is expected to come from Swedish driver Bjorn Waldegaard who is driving a Fiat. Waldegaard came in second at the pre-rally run.

    The rally is organised by the Royal Automobile Club of Morocco under the patronage of King Hassan. It was started by Prince Mohamed on Wednesday. The rally is due to end on Saturday.
