Amaury and co. strike again!

These are by Asphalt Heritage club member Matthieu Brotel and they are from the 2011 Maroc Classic Rallye in yup, you guessed it, le Maroc.

As we’ve come to expect, the photographs are terrific.

A little bit about the rally, as told by Amaury and Matthieu:

This is an historical rally going through Morocco that has taken place each year since 1993. The layout is wonderful and different every year, a bit like the Tour Auto. The cars go from Rabat to Marrakech, passing through beautiful cities like Erfoud, Tangier, and Ouarzazate. The 2011 route traveled 2,147 km through the High Atlas and along the Strait of Gibraltar, with 70 cars participating in the rally.

Morocco is “the country of paradoxes,” in that in a very short period of time, the weather can completely change. The cars drove through a snowstorm in very cold winds followed by a sunny road in the middle of a dry and warm desert just minutes later. These old cars need to run strong! But that’s also one of the great charms of the country, as you can swim in the sea and then go on the Oukaïmeden Ski Resort in the same day without having to travel very far.

As always, view the full set over at the Asphalt Heritage website. Thanks to Amaury for sharing the story and the shots!
