Video highlights from the 12th and final stage of the 2019 Africa Eco Race – veteran Italian Rally racer, Alessandro Botturi wins.

 

Running parallel with a certain rally event currently taking place in South America, the Africa Eco Race takes on some of the original and best rally routes in Africa through Morocco, Mauritania and Senegal to Dakar.

Former Yamaha Racing rider and highly experienced rally veteran, Alessandro Botturi has taken the win in the 2019 event across North Africa.

Pal Anders Ullevalseter finished a close second to Botturi – the pair were only separated by seven minutes through the entire rally. Both left the final stage start line determined, with Ullevalseter "pulling out the big guns" and forcing Botturi to fight to the flag for his victory.
