8 Stages of the TDC

Tunisia Desert Challenge literally is what it promises to be: a real challenge in the Tunisian desert. We have taken the successful concept of the Morocco Desert Challenge to a new level: 8 stages through the most beautiful desert scenery and the highest dunes!

Our team has now finished the recce in the south of Tunisia and is busy finalizing the roadbooks for the 2022 edition. This is what you can expect:

From the touristy beaches of Djerba to the desert areas and infinite dune sections of the mythical El Borma to iconic Star Wars sites in Tunisia's inland: this rally offers 8 beautiful but challenging stages, 5 nights in breath-taking desert bivouacs, nice vibes, cold beer and good food. A rally you don't want to miss!

Almost no liaison

Not only is Tunisia Desert Challenge an adventure full of surprises, with technical parts, fast African plains, many dunes, salt lakes and legendary places and tracks, it also offers something really unique: No liaison from the start of the first big special till the finish of the last one. That’s right: the pure rally experience, right outside the bivouac.
