CARTA RALLYE 2020

One rally - two races

CROSS COUNTRY & GPS CUP

CROSS COUNTRY

A typical Rally Raid in North Africa! A difficult race with a classic road book covering 2,300 kilometers of special stages. Many different terrains, difficulties but an atmosphere of international camaraderie unique to the Carta Rally.

    The Carta GPS CUPs


    A race of about 1000 kms, this is neither an old-fashioned navigation event (map and compass) nor a speed event. The objective is to reach all the GPS points given per day in a limited time (8 to 10 hours per day) with as few km as possible. The navigation is done with a GPS of your choice: for example GPS Globe 4x4. No classic roadbook navigation.

    At the Carta Rallye, your phone remains in your possession. Your families can reach you at any time and in the evening, you will have the pleasure of telling them about your day (WiFi is often available on our friendly places).

    You don't need to be an expert in rallies to participate in the GPS CUP event. This category is open to all.



    GPS CUP Expert


    The most difficult category - you will have fewer GPS points per day and the terrain will be more difficult. A good knowledge of topographic map reading will be essential as well as an advanced offroad experience. That's why the requirements on your vehicle are higher.


    Here are the main features of this category:

    • Ranking: yes
    • Distance: 120 - 150 km per day (excluding liaisons)
    • Number of GPS points to validate per day: 15 to 20
    • Night stage: yes
    • Terrain: Especially off-piste, dunes
    • Roll cage: recommended
    • Harness: recommended
    • Helmets: yes

    GPS CUP Adventure

    The ideal category for an introduction to navigation using GPS, tracks, sand and small dunes. The course is better adapted to vehicles with an overlanding/expedition preparation. As well as pickups equipped with cells.

    Here are the main features of this category:

    • Ranking: yes
    • Distance: +/- 100 km per day (excluding liaisons)
    • Number of GPS points to validate per day: 20 to 30
    • Night stage: yes
    • Terrain: mainly tracks
    • Roll cage: recommended
    • Harness: recommended
    • Helmets: no

    CARTA HISTORIC CHALLENGE

    In 2018 we introduced this new Challenge. It was a great success! We had an interesting variety of cars and buggys, some with a unique pedigree. So we will again have a Carta Historic Challenge in 2020 but their course will have less dunes than the standard Cross Country category. 


    There are two different categories in this class:

    • CARTA HISTORIC CHALLENGE (CROSS COUNTRY) PRE 1990
    • CARTA HISTORIC CHALLENGE (CROSS COUNTRY) 1990 to 2001



    The three best teams in historic vehicles will be honoured with their own trophy.

    To join the Carta Historic Challenge you have to be registered in the Cross Country Category.

    CARTA GIRLS CHALLENGE

    As in previous years we are again happy to welcome a large number of ladies at the Carta Rallye. Very fast ladies!


    The Carta Girls Challenge is open to all teams with at least one girl driver or co-driver.


    To join the Carta Girls Challenge you have to be registered in one of the following categories:

    • CROSS COUNTRY
    • GPS CUP EXPERT
    • GPS CUP ADVENTURE


    THE CARTA GIRL'S CHALLENGE SUPPORTS:

    For the third year the girls at the Carta Rallye showed their support in the fight against breast cancer.

    SECURITY CONCEPT

    Real-time monitoring

    The Carta Rallye uses a Spot-Me security and tracking system. This allows the organization to follow each vehicle in competition but also allows Internet users to follow your progress directly on a map background.

    A medical team on all fronts

    A medical fleet composed of 3 4x4 ambulances and 1 "sprinter" ambulance as well as a medical staff composed of 7 doctors and 3 paramedics are always ready to intervene in an emergency. During the race, they are strategically positioned so that doctors arrive on site within a very short time. After the race, you can easily find them at the competitors' gathering places (bivouac, hotel,...).

    Recovery

    A breakdown service rarely present and offered on other rallies with two 4x4 trucks. We do not leave anyone out in the field.

    Briefings

    Another important element of our safety concept, the daily crew briefings are conducted in English, French and German and provide information on all safety details for the next step.



    My first rally ever, but certainly not the last. It was a lot of fun. The Carta is pure adventure. Hard but hearty.
