Fans of motor racing will be interested to learn that a major event will be taking place in Marrakech in March to mark the opening of the FIA 2012 season.
Initially planned for Monza, the event will now be held in Morocco’s ‘pink city’, Marrakech, between 9th and 11th March 2012.
Motor sport enthusiasts will be aware that the Marrakech Grand Prix circuit is the only FIA World Championship track in Africa.
Its location, a short distance from the red city’s legendary rampart walls and with the snow-capped Atlas Mountains as a backdrop, promises to make this into one of the most attractive circuits (taking in the Mohammed VI and Ourika avenues) in the world.
The Formula 3000 race will be making its first appearance on the continent of Africa while the World Touring Car Championship will be taking place for the third time on the Marrakech circuit.
Those staying at our boutique hotel, Les Borjs de la Kasbah, for the duration of the Marrakech Grand Prix will be offered complimentary transfers to and from the course each day.
