"We have been working for six months on this event, the riders are going to be very happy. It will be the safest edition, we will know where all the participants are, to locate if they have a medical or mechanical emergency, we will have two intensive care ambulances," explained Reyes Morrison. "In addition, each competitor will carry a thermal sheet, which is the size of a napkin, a lighter and three liters of water," commented Patrick, who announced that the time trial will be held for the first time in the surroundings of San Jose del Pacifico, Oaxaca, in a diameter of about 50 kilometers and not on the beach as it was done before.

The organizer of the Rally highlighted that also as a novelty for this edition there will be a prologue in Boca del Rio, Veracruz, before the first stage, which will serve to remove the nervousness of the pilots, as well as to define the starting order and will grant time bonuses to the winners.

  • GPS: New category perfect for beginners who can enjoy the same competition route, but more relaxed by navigating with the Global Positioning System.

He mentioned that the Rally has five stages distributed throughout the three states with different mileage each one, besides they are new stages that no one has ever been through and each driver faces something unknown every day.
