The Essaouira finish was a real party in the desert, with a parade and a closing ceremony on the beach. On March 31, 2012, 8 Dacia Duster's, driven by Women@Renault and La Poste teams, were among the first 10 to cross the finish line. Among these 8 teams, 3 stepped on the podium (including 1 Women@Renault team). In the SUV category, our gazelles made the top 10.
We cannot congratulate them enough for these great results and admire their strength and courage. Bravo gazelles !
