Kjøreruta er klar!

Da har arrangørene publisert den offisielle kjøreruta for Budapest-Bamako 2012. Rallyet har fått undertittelen “Destination: Bissau”, for pussig nok skal vi ikke til Bamako neste år, men enda litt videre. Til neste år går rallyet altså til Bissau som er hovedstaden i det lille landet sør for Senegal, Guinea-Bissau.

Hva gjør vi i Team Bamako by Vespa, da? Må vi endre navn? Bissau by Vespa har jo ikke samme schwungen over seg, så intill videre gjør vi som arrangørene i rallyet og beholder Bamako i team-navnet. :)

Fra arrangørenes nettside:

Spectacular mountain roads, rocky paths across the Atlas and the Sarhro will take teams to the Bani mountains and old Dakar pistes. Morocco will be demanding with its long days and complex stages. Day 8 will take us through to the Mauritanian border.

Instead of the usual 5 days, we’ll spend only 2 and half days in Mauritania, but it will be pure Sahara with golden sand dunes, soft desert paths and fast salt flats. We ll pass through the Banc D’Arguin National Park, a Unesco World Heritage Site and party hard at B2 Beach, named after the rally.

More savannah driving and red clay roads will see the teams along to Diema, where a truly authentic African village experience awaits. From Diema a difficult two day super marathon will commence. You’ll have two days to get out of Mali and find a river crossing over the Senegal river. I

After entering the country teams will have to drive to the Niokolo Koba National Park along dusty village roads among mud huts and millet fields. We’ll spend the night by the banks of the Gambia river among monkeys and warthogs. Lucky ones will see hippos and crocodiles.

Wetlands, jungles and authentic African villages and rich wildlife will await in this small former Portuguese colony. The rally will finish in Bissau where the electricity is still turned off after 8PM every day. A fun place to party and celebrate your arrival. (Yes, they do have generators)
