Challenge' from Germany to the Gambia in order to distribute

of the race but about assisting the people of this small

and 4WD vehicles over a 7,000 km route from Germany
through France, Spain then through the Sahara Desert
countries of Morocco, Mauritania and onto Dakar in Senegal
and terminating in The Gambia. Drivers are expected
to manage an average for stages of 800km per day excluding
border crossings, rests and waiting times.
the lorries and other vehicles are filled with products
that are urgently required with a particular emphasis
on teaching books, desks, chairs, medical monitoring
& diagnostic equipment and ambulances.
Money is raised by the DBO is from the eventual auction
of vehicles that have taken part in the rally as well
as private individual donations such as from the Association
for Kehlitz Steffen.
