• Transport of the race bikes from Saint Cyprien to Motril.
• Transport and collection of your bikes from the South of France and back to the UK
• Transport of a rider, due to mechanical or injury problems (in a case of there being no room, DRR will speak to the organisers to secure a place in another vehicle)
• Carriage during the event of the following: 3 x kit boxes, 1 x set of spare wheels, with tyres & mousses fitted, 3 x Rear tyres, 2 x Front tyres, 1 x Pop Up Tent
• 1 x Kit bag
• Mechanic (not exclusive to one rider, but the same mechanic for the duration of the event)
• Access to the DRR support truck and its facilities.
• Access to spares that DRR will carry (please see additional notes)
• Team management
• DRR Team wear of a T-Shirt and a race shirt
• Advice on preparation for rider and bike from the wealth of knowledge that DRR has gained over the last 15 years giving assistance to riders all over the world.
Price : £6,700
For our service package 2, this includes all the points in the full support package, but NOT mechanical assistance. Riders would have the full use of our truck and its facilities including having their own work space by the truck each night to do all their own servicing on the bike, including changing tyres and mousses.
If you wish DRR to change your tyres/mousses, then we can cost this out for you.
If during the event, you would like to then have mechanical assistance; this would be charged per day. Please not that this daily charge would be 40% higher than riders who have pre booked ‘full assistance’ from the start.
Price £4,700

The Raid is there for those who want to live the rally from the inside, benefiting from all the security and logistics of a great African rally and also by using some of the tracks of the race without the timing part.
