MAN Team wins with TGE 4x4 a spot on the podium for the 29th Aïcha des Gazelles Rally

On its very first attempt at the Rally Aicha des Gazelles du Maroc 2019, MAN Truck & Bus France qualifies in second place in the Crossover / SUV category.

  • The team of MAN Truck & Bus France was built by the company’s two colleagues Marina and Stephanie
  • The successful car was a MAN TGE with all-wheel-drive

The duo of Stephanie, the pilot, and Marina, the co-pilot, defied the very particular terrain of the Moroccan desert in a remarkable way. This performance of the team WO-MAN could not have been achieved without their MAN TGE 4x4, specially modified for the occasion, by the MAN Centre for Technical Conversions in Bourg en Bresse.

As the only utility vehicle in this competition, the MAN TGE 4x4 proved its perfect mastery of all terrains. Despite having quite a low chassis, although the vehicle was raised during preparatory work, and its length, the power (177 HP) and the agility of its engine allowed it to easily drive out of the many sand drifts which faced the 311 crew. The vital components of the vehicle having been well protected upstream, the vehicle suffered very little damage, and the WO-MAN team managed to minimize their penalty points by limiting their calls for assistance.
