On 18th March, BMS Trustee Benedicte Clarkson and her long time friend Jamila Ait Akka will compete in the Rallye Aicha des Gazelles du Maroc in support of the BMS.

Created in 1990, the Rallye Aicha des Gazelles is the biggest women-only off-road car rally in the world taking place in Morocco in March 2022. The unique event brings women aged 18 to 71 from around the world together in the Moroccan desert. Since its creation, the RAG has been developing a new vision for motorsport: no speed, no GPS just old-school navigation, entirely off-road.

Jamila and Benedicte have been friends for over 15 years. They met in London whilst volunteering for The British Moroccan Society, which is still their charity of choice for the rally. The duo have participated 3 times in the RAG in the past and their best result was 23rd in 2015.

This time, they are aiming to win! You can support Jamila and Benedicte by donating to the BMS.
