Driven To Extremes

Morocco Challenge 2018

This year, we were proud to be invited to support and guide the Driven To Extremes challenge to Morocco. We’ve spent many years organizing and leading overland tours to Morocco and usually our customers are driving a range of expedition-prepared 4x4s but this trip was rather different.

The aim the organization is to raise awareness of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and this expedition was to provide a challenge for nine military veterans, all sufferers of PTSD. The mission was to drive the old Paris-Dakar rally piste - in Citroen Berlingos…

Most 4x4s will cope well enough in the Sahara but could it be done with a bunch of 2 wheel drive, non-turbo, 1.9 diesel powered, road-tyred, 16 year old cars with more miles on the clock than the Millennium Falcon?

Of course it could! But only with a load of guts and determination from the team of veterans who pushed, pulled, dug, swore and drove like demons on rock strewn tracks, across dry lake beds and through soft, soft sand dunes.

Ably supported by the Driven To Extremes team, all 9 veterans and all 6 cars made it safely back to mainland Europe. The cars - fairly beaten and bent, the veterans - unbroken and on a real high. The plan now is for the veterans to join the Driven To Extremes support crew and help to provide future driving challenges for PTSD sufferers.
