Pure Adrenaline. Rallye-Raid with road-book navigation and GPS navigation. Daily ranking.

> Registration and Entry Fees



GPS Navigation event with no notion of speed. The aim is to reach a number of GPS points given by the organisation every day, by covering the shortest distance. Failure to reach GPS points and check points will result in penalties. Daily ranking.

> Registration and Entry Fees


Discovery Raid. The participants follow the rally by crossing the competitors at certain press points and can live the excitement of the bivouac and the race atmosphere every night. The organisation is very flexible with the participant schedule of this category. Some professionals take advantage of the support of the organisation to make up their own group and manage their own clients.

New for 2017! The Carta SSV Challenge. It will be a GPS Challenge especially for SSV's of all brands. We are planning a course for SSV's which will have been reconned with an SSV to accommodate the higher capacity of these machines in the sand and off-road. The ranking will be done on the same principle as the GPS Challenge for cars, that is to say, you will have a number of GPS points to cover in a given time. The competitor who validates the maximum points by traveling the shortest distance will be the winner of the stage. So no classic roadbook but simple GPS navigation. Each vehicle will be equipped with a GPS tracker to validate their track. Geotraq will be our partner for this service and ranking.


Girls only. More information is coming up soon.

The DAKTEC Service Area

Matthias Krüger ( DE )

Unser Team, DAKTEC-Motorsport, war mit 8 Fahrzeugen zum ersten Mal auf der CARTA-Rallye Marokko dabei. Uns hat vor allen Dingen das internationale Starterfeld gelockt. Auch die Möglichkeit, die Rallye parallel in der Discovery Class zu begleiten, fanden wir toll. Die Strecken waren einzigartig und neu, die Landschaft atemberaubend schön. Schnell fanden sich unsere Teams in den Roadbüchern zurecht. Von Anfang an fuhren wir ganz vorn mit. So konnten wir auch einige Tagessiege für uns verbuchen. Die abwechslungsreichen Etappen hielten Dünen und auch schnelle Pisten bereit. Die Fahrerlager und die Unterkünfte waren gut gewählt. Vor allen Dingen im Süden waren die Lodges sehr schön. Am Ende war Platz vier das beste Ergebnis unseres Teams. Wir kommen wieder. Vielen Dank an Chris, die Orga und die Jungs von der Presse.

Une organisation sans faille, un tracé inédit et mêlant technique et orientation, un roadbook de grande qualité, un plateau de haut niveau, une excellente ambiance font du Carta Rally une référence dans le milieu des rallyes raids. Nous revenons l année prochaine, c’est sur!

Das war definitiv mal wieder die vernünftigste Art und Weise, unseren Jahresurlaub zu verbringen! Viele schnelle Strecken, auf denen wir mit bis zu 175km/h unterwegs waren, wechselten sich immer wieder mit fahrerisch und navigatorisch schwierigen Teilstücken ab, in denen alle Teams ihr Geschick im Gelände beweisen mussten. Wir sind mit unserem 2. Gesamtrang sehr zufrieden. Vielen Dank an die Orga, für eine tolle und spannende Woche in Marokko.

Le carta a encore réussi à régaler tout les concurrents de nombreuses nationalités
en effet. Cette édition ou de petit team ont réussi à rivaliser avec des grands qui n’avaient pas lésiné sur les moyens en assistance voila un espoir d avenir ou tout le monde à ses chances, il est vrai que le tracé et surtout tout les cp ont rendu cette incroyable aventure a un jeu de piste ou les navigateurs se sont arrachés les cheveux, une merveille de paysage de difficultés sur un rythme endiablé pendant les 8 jours de course, c’était long éprouvant ,mais tout le monde en redemander vivement l’année prochaine.

Winner of the Cross country 4x4 Category 2015

A Rally Raid enthusiast, with many races under my belt, including a 13th participation in the Dakar, I wanted for the 2nd consecutive year to get involved in the organisation of the Carta Rallye to accompany competitors on Moroccan tracks to explore breathtaking landscapes. This year the vegetation had covered the usally arid desert. Flowers covered vast plains.

The rally took place in a sporting atmosphere where respect, mutual support and friendship emerged victorious. The very specific course, with tracks where amazing off-road requires careful navigation at every momemt, makes us live intense and magical moments. Carta values are there.
