Dacia celebrates a sixth consecutive win for Duster!

Dacia-celebrates-a-sixth-consecutive-win-for-Duster!

Hajar Elbied and Malika Ajaha finished the 31st edition of the Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles victorious, despite hundreds of kilometres of dunes and rocky terrain, punctures and even a sandstorm.

The Dusters of the 301 and 304 teams, also supported by Dacia, completed the podium in their first participation in the rally.  The final return to the bivouac was marked by horns and shouts of joy, with smiles on the tired but happy faces of Hajar, Malika, Juliette, Marie, Sabine and Isabelle. Thanks to this new victory, Dacia Duster remains unbeaten since 2017 in the Crossover category.

The Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles is a motor race like no other, one that focuses on the fundamentals: people, sport, nature. The challenge lies in using age-old navigation techniques, with the help of just a map and a compass. With neither stopwatch nor GPS, speed is not a factor in determining the winner.  All one needs to do is master off-road driving and find the shortest possible route between checkpoints.  Uncompromisingly reliable and robust, Duster shows yet again that it is made to overcome such challenges.

Denis Le Vot, Executive Vice-President, CEO, Dacia and Lada, gave his warm congratulations to the Dacia “gazelles” for their Dacia Duster hat-trick!
