This morning (local time), Africa Race competitors arrived by ferry to Morocco (Nador city). Unfortunately, the process of border crossing was drawn out to a great length. In 2.5 hours, the team received only one passport. Everybody was in this situation. At 10.42 local time (14.42 MSK) sports truck pilots received their passports, and left to the start of the first special stage. Vasiliy Kvachev shared the thought that probably the SS would be reduced, because the riders have 200 km of liaison before the start, and, as it was announced at the morning briefing, the second part of SS will be high-speed and with difficult navigation. In the incoming twilight, it will be impossible to drive in those places.
