The Pathfinder Edition AWARDS

In order to further celebrate our brave Pathfinders who will be forging the initial routes in July 2023, we have created The Pathfinder Awards for those who go above and beyond while on the road.

The Victorious Team

There has to be a winning team… that will almost certainly not be the first team to cross the finish line, but instead will be the team to embody the all round sense of adventure and positivity which we are looking to bring back to the world. Maybe you raised money for charity while taking part? Maybe you got involved in local projects along the way? Maybe you did something incredible on route which we can’t even think of in advance!? This team will be immortalised in Africa Rally history as there can only ever be one first winning team!

Best Dressed Team

This award will be honourably bestowed on the team crossing the finish line in the best dressed manner, it is important to note that judgement will be made based on how the vehicle is also dressed, not just the team members!

Wildest Story

This award will be for the team who have the single wildest experience while on the rally. Did you come face to face with an elephant while taking a wild shower? Did you end up nominated for a government position during an election? Did you enter a drinking contest and wake up in a tree? To be considered for this award you will need to post your experience to social media before reaching the finish line and remember to tag us to be entered!

Photo of the Rally

A classic category but what can we say, we are jealous of the experiences you’ll be having and we want to see your photos! Any photo posted to social media where The Africa Rally is tagged can be considered for this award!

The Scavenger Hunt Trophy

Full details of what is required to win this award will only be provided at the start line, however teams should expect an eclectic mix of items and images in order to qualify.

The Toto Award

This Award requires video evidence. It shall be awarded to the team able to record the best rendition of Toto – Africa while taking part in the rally. Points will be given for enthusiasm, location, number of people involved, and any musical skill which might be thrown into the mix!

The Golden Pineapple Award

Is your vehicle sitting in a ditch somewhere 1,000 miles away in a different country? Did you hitch-hike to the finish line in the back of a lorry? Wearing your last pair of semi-clean pants? Then this might qualify you for our Golden Pineapple Award. Congratulations, you had a hell of an adventure and that’s what it’s all about!

Everyone upon reaching the finish line will receive their very own Africa Rally Finishers Medal so you can look back in years to come on a truly amazing trip. There will probably be additional awards we’ll have thought up by the time The Pathfinder Edition goes live, so check back and submit your suggestions!
