The yearly Rallye Des Gazelles pits women from across the globe against one another in their most off-road ready vehicles to drive from checkpoint to checkpoint through the grueling, unforgiving Moroccan desert in the shortest distance, and not the fastest time. The terrain can wreak utter havoc on all components of the car, from the tires, to the engine, to the suspension, and if the utmost care is not taken, it can spell a quick end to competitors’ race hopes.
