17 cars racing three biggest Rally Raids in the world

Red-Lined Motorsport is poised for a mega April with seventeen cars set to compete in three of the biggest and toughest major rally raid events across the globe over the next three weeks. With five cars entered in this week’s third round W2RC World Championship race in Portugal and Spain, another five in the gruelling Morocco Desert Challenge, and then seven more competing in the opening round of the South African championship, the team has its work cut out.

“We have a huge April loading!” team boss Terence Marsh confirmed. “We certainly have our work cut out with three major races in four countries on two different continents in the next three weeks. We start with five crews racing the third round of the World Rally Raid Championship in Portugal and Spain. We had a great start to the FIA W2RC at the Dakar in the beginning of the year which was then followed by the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge, but Rally Raid Portugal’s plains and bush will be a completely different challenge over five days, starting Wednesday 3 April.

“From there it’s back to Africa and the Morocco Desert Challenge. The second biggest cross country racing event after Dakar, this one once again attracts top crews from across the globe to race over eight days on terrain that includes everything from fast open sections, to testing technical work and lots of dunes, salt lakes and dry river beds. We once again have five cars entered for Morocco, starting on the twelfth and ending on 20 April.

“Then, while we stay in Africa, our next challenge actually overlaps with Morocco. The comparatively short and sharp two-day South African Championship Nkomazi 400 goes down no less than eleven thousand kilometres away on 19 and 20 April. This is another big one for us, with seven cars scheduled to race in the opening round of the most competitive Rally Raid championship in the world. Most exciting for us is that Nkomazi will be the National debut of our hugely anticipated factory V6 turbo powered T1+ REVO GT-R.

“So, April is a huge racing month for Red-Lined Motorsport and our partners around the world. Seventeen of our cars are set and ready to tackle thousands of racing kilometres over varied and gruelling terrain over a period of fifteen days” Terence Marsh concludes. “It’s also a huge test for our entire team as well as partners in Portugal, Belgium and Holland but we are all ready for the adventure and the challenges and curve balls that this wonderful sport of ours tends to dish out!”
