Yon González loves extreme sports! The faster and more exhilarating the better. Car racing, kitesurfing, and now a cross country Marathon by car. The Marathon Challenge 2016 from April 30-May 7 to be exact. A 3000 Km car race against the clock in Morocco! The rugged terrain includes rocky slopes of 2000 meters and snowcapped peaks, sandy slopes at sea level, and the the vast desert. The drivers drive for 12 hours and then rest for 12 hours under the stars in exotic, mysterious Morocco. In most races the winner would be the first through the finish line… but not in this case. The winner is the team that finishes the route with the least points and least accumulated time.
A true test of ingenuity and stamina! Yon's car is #33- The Opportunity Team. You can track his progress here. Check out some pictures from the Marathon below.
