OSM transportation service: Fly and ride …

… the organizer’s transport service especially for enduro, quad and ATV drivers who want to take part in the rally without a service team has been reorganized for 2022.

 

With the OSM-Grafing team around Karlheinz Müller and his MAN specially prepared for the rally service, we can significantly expand our offer: 4 people, a larger number of C80 boxes and up to 10 motorcycles can be accommodated in the truck.

 

  • transport of vehicles as well as luggage, tools and spare parts from Europe to Tunisia and back
  • transporting luggage, tools and spare parts from one paddock to the next
  • vehicle presentation for the technical inspection in Tortona
  • the driver can fly individually to Tunisia* and pick up his vehicle at the hotel on the evening before the rally begins
  • after the end of the rally, we will load the vehicle and transport it back to Europe
  • the participant can fly homewards** individual

* For arrival we recommend the airport Monastir, closest to the hotel in Mahdia

** Departure after the rally from Tunis

Of course, we also organize baggage, tools and spare part transport for participants of all other classes.

If possible, luggage, tools and spare parts should be stowed in the C80-tin-boxes (LxWxH = 80x45x37cm) prescribed for FIA events, as the storage and lashing system of the MAN is based on these dimensions. Please inquire beforehand for other dimensions or goods to be transported.

Booking and payment of transport capacity takes place directly with the organizer. Please register your need early / all prices can be found here: -> form

Delivery before and collection after the rally can take place in Grafing near Munich or at the hotel in Tortona (place of the technical inspection) after prior appointment. For all related organizational questions, the OSM-Grafing team can be reached here: www.osm-grafing.de   /   info@osm-grafing.de

Attention: The OSM team only offers transport, can provide electricity, light and compressed air on the truck, but does not carry out any service activities.

After a successful pre-tour …

… we present the final routes of the El Chott 2022.

After evaluating of our pre-tour recordings, we will publish the daily stages with transfers and special stages in detail.

Unfortunately we were not able to get a comprehensive permission for routes in the southern restricted area for our event in autumn. As a requirement for a special stage south of El Borma, a distance of 30 kilometers from the external borders of Tunisia was specified for all activities (see marking on the map). With that we would not have been able to use either the existing pistes near the border to Algeria or the OASIS camp near El Borma. On this basis, unfortunately, there can be no dune stage in the restricted area. But in order to use other, new pistes once again, the longest special stage at 400 km will partly lead through the restricted area.

Another highlight of the rally will be in 2022 again the marathon stage with a bivouac at the “lost lake”.
