This will be the second loop stage of the 2017 AFRICA ECO RACE®. The start will be 23 kilometers from Akjoujt. The really fast track of the start will lead the competitors to the White Valley until the famous pass of Amodjar which is still as magnificent. Besides that, we will place a camera there. A quite rocky part of the cliff will be a little delicate before reaching the village of Maden after which will be placed refueling. Then, in the descent of the cliff, the panorama that will be offered to the participants is one of the most beautiful of Mauritania with dunes down as far as the eye can see. Depending on the weather conditions in the previous months or weeks, the dunes will be easy or not. The advantage is that the rally will go through this part relatively early in the morning so it should be fine, especially in this direction and on this very sandy section. The track will go to the sublime pass of Hnouk which will be slaloming between the cliffs. Again, a feast for the eyes but a quite difficult portion between the rocks. Then the track winds between the dunes before arriving on a crossing once again, just before the "Percé Rock" which will be a mark of passage easily recognizable. After two more dunes cords, the pass of Izigui will be the last small difficulty of the day before passing CP3 and to quickly go towards the finish. Undoubtedly the most spectacular stage of the rally when it comes to landscapes.
