Dacia backs veterans in Morocco rally bid

Recommended Posts

Dacia x Future Terrain - meet the team 1430-mile Carta rally will see four race-prepped Duster SUVs piloted by ex-military personnel

Dacia will support a fleet of veterans and ex-military service personnel to contest a series of cross-country rallies in Morocco and the UK as part of a partnership with the Future Terrain charity.

Future Terrain was established to help military veterans, particularly those with physical and mental injuries, to earn qualifications that will help them gain civilian employment.

Through the programme a Future Terrain team will compete in four Dacia Dusters in the 1430-mile Carta Rallye off-road event that starts in Morocco on 31 March, and the British National Cross-Country Championship.

The Dusters are competing in the GPS Cup section of the Carta Rally, which runs for largely standard-spec machine and mixes elements of a timed event with a navigation rally.

A number of veterans have been undergoing training in the Dusters on tank proving grounds at MOD Bovington in Dorset. Grant White, Future Terrain’s operations chief and a former Royal Marine who lost his leg in a motorcycle accident, said: “Even in standard form on road tyres the Dusters have been really capable.”

The Future Terrain charity has its roots in a previous initiative called Race2Recovery, which led to a team of service personnel competing in the Dakar Rally.
