The Libya Rally is, since its creation in 2008, one of the fastest growing rallies/raids in the Sahara. As the name reveals, theorigins of this rally are in Libya, the country with the highest and most beautiful dunes of Northern Africa. As a result of the war in 2011 the Khadafi regime came to an end. Although the war is over now, it is still impossible to host a large international sports event in Libya, mainly due to the negative travel advise of many European Ministries of Foreign Affairs.
Because the Libya Rally had become so much more than racing between impressive sand seas and canyons, the organisation decided to hold the event elsewhere … in excile. First came two editions in Tunisia and since 2013 the rally takes place in beautiful Morocco.
