Over at the Toronto Star’s Wheels section, Nika Rolczewski has a great story about 2 single moms from Ontario who have taken on the challenge of desert racing. But this isn’t just any desert race, the Rallye Aicha des Gazelles is a womens only event. The 1,200 km route took them through dry lake beds, ever moving sand dunes and rock strewn quarries.
These brave women made it through successfully and even managed to impress organizers with some agressive driving along the way. For the full story visit Wheels
