1000dunas is an endurance and navigation raid that lives up to the values of desert adventure and aims to push your limits. All riders and drivers live together at 1000dunas and share the most important value: a passion for true adventure.
Raiders may choose from 4 different categories with various stages with different distance covered. Each driver sets him or herself a goal. Thus, 1000dunas may be the best school for the initiated, the best training for experts or the hardest raid in the world. Set your own limit!
Navigation is the main pillar of 1000dunas adventure. Our sports director, Miguel Puertas, offers his experience as driver and as team manager of the best raid rally private team, Himoinsa Racing Team. His particular vision designed routes that will make you evolve as navigator and undertake new challenges.
1000dunas tracks are exclusive and different for motorbikes and cars. This enables motorbikes to reach inaccessible sites and makes every special stage more technical, fun and safe. It also allows car drivers to enjoy a high-level experience with a 4×4 production vehicle.
Riders will come up against first class road books. Off-piste navigation, CAP, WPM (Hidden Waypoint), WPC (Control Waypoint), visual references…it will all be the best training. If you are new to navigation, taking part in 1000dunas is not an issue since you’ll be advised and trained by our team led by Miguel Puertas and Romano Caviglia.
OBJECTIVES: An evolution in learning and facing new challenges.
The territory 1000dunas travels through is part of the adventure. The bivouacs in the middle of the desert are the best way to ensure this experience is authentic. The environmental conditions are the same for all participants. You’ll sleep and live together in camps under the stars with the other raiders in this second edition.
OBJECTIVE: test your capability to adapt and work in teams.
