Hummer Driving Academy event to take place in Morocco

Posted in Property News by admin Friday August 29, 2008

Morocco Property Report 29th August 2008 –

HUMMER owners, friends and enthusiasts are being offered a unique opportunity to take vehicles to their limits in some of the most spectacular terrain in the world. The first HUMMER Driving Academy event takes place in Morocco from 7-12 November 2008 and will take a fleet of 14 HUMMER H3s on a 1300km route which includes the Sahara Desert.

Off-Road Adventurers!

The HUMMER H3s will carry necessary survival equipment, desert tyres and GPS satellite navigation systems, but are otherwise standard, 3.7 litre 5-cylinder automatic H3s.

Each of the 14 teams consists of a driver and co-driver. They will be given full instruction on the specialised off-road driving and GPS navigation techniques, as they take in a route from the port of Agadir in southern Morocco, across a range of terrain.

The section between Taroudant and Marrakech takes in spectacular salt flats, before crossing tough mountain trails en-route to Ouarzezate, then hitting the dunes of the Sahara desert for a crossing to Chegaga. An awe-inspiring dry lake bed will hone navigation skills on the way to Taliouine, before the participants return to Agadir. Participants will also spend one unforgettable night in a comfortable nomadic tent in Erg Chegaga.

The HUMMER Driving Academy event in Morocco is the first of a series of events which will be rolled out in 2009. Their aim is to offer HUMMER owners and their friends a series of unique off-road experiences and to demonstrate the off-road capabilities that have made HUMMER a legend around the world. Source:

Moroccan Sands Comment: If all this appears a little too adventurous for your liking, we suggest that you forego the Hummer and instead, jump in a taxi from central Marrakech for the 20 minute journey to the fabulous Al Johara Resort .  Admittedly, the resort is currently under construction, but when complete, this family orientated Marrakech property development will have so many civilised on-site attractions that we guarantee any thoughts of being shaken up in a monster off-roader will quickly evaporate!
