GIBRALTAR RAID in a nutshell: you can live the amazing experience of seeing Europe on often unknown on and off road routes by following a gpx track with your navigation device. All this by sharing the atmosphere and the bivouacs with the pilots involved in the Adventure Challenge number 1 in Europe.

Each participant must be equipped with the USB connection cable of his GPS device.

The organization will not be responsible if it is not possible to load or display correctly all the information contained in the .GPX file for each stage.

The file of each stage (day) will be splitted into two or more parts. Each part must be completed within a time limit beyond which the assistance of the ambulance and the rescue vehicle will no longer be guaranteed.

MEDICAL ASSISTANCE

The service is carried out with ambulances 4×4 with paramedics and doctors and with the mobile medical unit at the bivouacs. The rescue of the pilot and his transport to the nearest suitable E.R., diagnostics and emergency interventions and, if necessary, repatriation (through an agreed insurance) are provided. However it is advisable to have a personal accident insurance policy valid for abroad.

PLANNED ROUTES

All the route for participants and for people involved in the Gibraltar Raid will be open to traffic. For this reason is mandatory to comply with the rules to travel on them. There will be the following two types of routes:

  1. The Raid Route: normally for participants of Gibraltar Raid, for some of vehicles of Organization, for registered assistance vehicles (as specified in the General Regulation), for medical aid.
  2. Shortest paved road from bivouac to bivouac: for Organization, logistic and some assistance vehicles, in order to travel from a camp to the next one.

REFUELING

Despite Gibraltar Raid takes place in Europe it is advisable that motorbikes have a minimum autonomy of 150 kilometers. There are many gas stations, we suggest you to refuel whenever is possible.

WARNINGS

Motorsports are dangerous.

The Organization does its best to prevent accidents or to mitigate their severity by following warnings:

  • always keep in mind that the whole route is on public road open to traffic
  • Reduce speed along difficult paths
  • Possible known pitfalls are reported along with waypoints

For a successful event the cooperation of pilots is required. They have to remember to:

  • Do not exceed their limits for a safe ride
  • Both where the path is natural and where it is paved it can have pitfalls normally not present in your country of origin
  • Not follow other competitors and leave your navigation or you will risk of getting lost

In case of accident, prompt intervention depends mainly on pilots:

  • First of all you have to use, where possible, the health emergency button on your GPS tracker (balise) and your mobile phone to call the Organization to the number “SOS GIB RACE”.
  • The emergency number is delivered on the first day with the ID bracelet.
  • Describe the kind and severity of the accident and report the number of the nearest waypoint and the possible distance to it according to GPS information
  • In case of lack of cellular coverage, if possible, you have to move towards the next waypoint or reach it.

For these reasons it is mandatory to have with you during Gibraltar Race the minimum safety equipment indicated in the General Regulation and a charged mobile phone and turned on.
