Interested in becoming a Gazelle and entering the legend of the Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles? 

The only criterion is your own determination!

The Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles is open to all women over 18 who hold a valid driver’s license for the vehicle they wish to drive in the event. The competition is open to 4x4 vehicles, quad bikes (ATVs), motorbikes, Crossovers, trucks...

Each team is made up of two teammates. There is no "selection process" for participation. Find a teammate with whom you have an affinity: a family member, co-worker, friend... The most important thing is to find someone who is motivated and with whom you are compatible.

The Rallye is for novices but it does also attract some professional drivers. Every year, 70% of the Gazelles are experiencing the adventure for the very first time...
