Rallye Maroc Historique 2014
Well here's a great vintage rally event over in Morocco. Running for a number of years this event draws big numbers of competitors. This year saw some 90 entrants running a cool mix of vehicles from vintage Porsche 911s to Ford Escort RS Mk2s to a Nissan 240.
The event lasted for almost a full week covering 25 special stages and some 450 racing kilometers. In the end it was Jean-Francois Berenguer taking the win in his Escort RS Mk2 and a the aforementioned Nissan 240 RS (the only Nissan/Datsun in the event) taking third and driven by Gregoire de Mevius.
