Adventure Raid

Adventure Raid is intended as an introduction to navigation rally without the stresses of racing and most extreme terrain. It is a guided trip, designed for street legal 4 wheel drive vehicles (Raptors, Jeeps and Overlanders). Your guide will be world famous journalist and adventurer Chris Collard. You will be running sections of the Special Stages and Liasons on paved and dirt roads. You will also have a front row seat to sections of the race course in order to provide opportunities to watch the action. You will not be running at race speeds or scored in results.

Navigation is by following the guide and provided GPS tracks, but if you wish to practice your roadbook skills on the Special Stages we will provide a road book on request (must be made in advance). Please have a Ram mount for the Organization Garmin GPS you will be issued for use on the event. We do not provide the tracks to be downloaded in your GPS.

The trip will be at an easy pace to enjoying the scenery and the unique Sonora Rally experience, at points along the course and in the bivouac.
