Tribute to René Metge

The AFRICA ECO RACE is orphaned as our very own René METGE passed away on Wednesday January 3, 2024. A key figure in Cross-Country Rallies since the discipline's inception, he was one of the founding pillars of this great African Rally.

But beyond that, he was the patriarch of our great AFRICA ECO RACE family. René was 82 years old. This exceptional driver and immense organizer has given his last timing card. He will leave a great void in the world of motor sports and in our hearts.

The final gesture of this big-hearted man, for whom friendship was stronger than anything, was to ask to be buried after the finish of the Rally. He can count on us to be at his side one last time.
