Bethany Hamilton To Drive In Morocco Rally
According to a report on couriermail.com.au, Bethany Hamilton will be driving in a road rally race next month in Morocco. The race, the Rallye Aicha des Gazelles in Morocco, features the best women drivers in the world and takes on Morocco’s twisting coastline and desert. And despite only having one arm, we have no doubt that Bethany will give the fellow racers a run for their money!
As reported on couriermail.com.au:
SHARK victim Bethany Hamilton will leave the Australian coast behind and head for the desert next month, putting her surfing career on hold to race over sand dunes in a Moroccan rally.
The one-armed surfer, the victim of a shark attack in Hawaii when just 13, cruised through the second round of the Hunter Ports at Newcastle before revealing her plans to join 150 teams of women in the Rallye Aicha des Gazelles in Morocco.
Hamilton, who has travelled from her home in Hawaii to compete in early season surfing events, will next month be one of five US teams competing in the nine-day off-road racing event touted as the toughest all-female sporting event on the planet.
“I can’t wait. It’s going to be really exciting,” Hamilton said from Newcastle. “It’s a new adventure, which is something I really like.”
