THE FAMOUS ALPINE LEGEND !
With spring well underway, many of you were already thinking about the start of the new school year and obviously the Trophée des Alpes.
As every year for 6 years now, we had planned to go back to the Alps to make you live the most beautiful regularity rally of the season, as some like to nickname it. However, the war in Ukraine, the increase of the fuel prices, the inflation, the new professionnal year or the plethora of classic events, force us, with a very great disappointment, to cancel this edition. We deeply regret this decision, which is not our usual practice, and we are deeply sorry for the enthusiasts who signed up.
Next appointment all together for the 14th edition of the TransMaroc, from 5 to 12 November 2022! Registration until July 1, 2022

Trails zigzag in every direction, as far as the eye can see. Cliffs rise to 2,000 meters above sea level. And the connecting legs take you through the incomparable valleys. A route designed by Albert Rousset between the two world wars, the “Rallye des Alpes” paved the way for what was to become one of the most dif cult in the entire history of motor sports. After its cancellation in 2020 du to the Covid-19, it is improved for 2021 with all the talent and experience of the Zaniroli Classic Events, the Alps Trophy promises to be the highest point on the season’s roster! With nearly 1,300 kilometers to cover in just three legs that include ten mountain passes to cross each and every day, there will certainly be sweat and tears. A tricky, unprecedented regularity challenge that will test the skills of drivers and co-pilots alike all along this route, which will be as amazing to ponder as it will be to navigate. Another unique aspect of this Alps Trophy: unlike most regularity rallies, the timing is very closely clocked. Every stop, even during connecting legs, is penalized and the teams must also grapple with the local speed limits. As you can see, while a friendly, fun-loving ambiance is integral to all Patrick Zaniroli events, in keeping with the Dakar champion’s inherent style, the 2021 Alps Trophy will be extremely demanding, for the crews as well as their cars!
Each day there are 10 passes to go up and down in ZR (Regularity Zone) within a route of 250 to 300 km per stage!
