Another new adventure! Two co-worker of Montpellier BS, Karine and Alexandrine will participate to the Rally des Gazelles.


Karine Marcadet, Apprenticeship Coordinator and Alexandrine Bernad, Development Manager at Montpellier BS, will participate to the Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles in Morocco. The rally which will take place until the 2nd of April, gathered 180 vehicles and 300 participants. Having gathered the 30,000 euros needed to participate and a Volkswagen vehicle, it is with much emotion that they packed up their bags just few days before the beginning!

« We are both very stressed and very happy to go on this adventure », said Karine and Alexandrine before leaving Montpellier. « Our sponsors have played a major role. Without them we would not be here and we thank them all very much from the bottom of our heart! Special thank you to our great partner Volkswagen, which has generously decided to help us by providing us an Amarok pick-up. They also provided us the maintenance support and allowed us to take part of the Volkswagen team! »

In the last few weeks, the two "gazelles" were preparing physically and psychologically ... « We had a driving and an orientation training (map, compass…) because during the rally, we will have no GPS and no phone. We will have to rely only on ourselves! »

Currently in transfer to Morocco after an official start in Nice this Saturday, March the 19th, their "Sports" program will start Thursday, March the 23th. Upon arrival at the first camp they will do a 3 hours training race and the next day, the rally will start and until March the 31st, they will wake up at 4 am for a briefing before departure. Every night, they will have to reach a new camp except if they don’t find it. In that case, they will have to sleep in the desert! « It is a mix of stress and excitement! We imagine that it is psychologically exhausting as it will be 9 intense days, » they said.
