Hummer Organizes Driving Academy Event in Morocco


For those of you who are looking to sharpen thei
r off-road driving abilities and to take a break from the daily routine life, GM is launching its first ever Hummer Driving Academy ev
ent that will take place in Morocco from 7-12 November 2008. The academy will take a fleet of 14 Hummer H3s on a 1300km (about 800 miles) route which includes the Sahara Desert. Overall, there will be 14 teams consisting of a driver and co-driver. The participating SUVs will carry necessary survival equipment, desert tires and GPS satellite navigation systems, but other than that, they’re standard H3s with 3.7-liter 5-cylinder engines and automatic transmissions.


The cost of participation in the 2008 HUMMER Driving Academy event has been set at 3.995 or $5,870 per team of two (driver and co-driver), and it includes the use of the H3 vehicles and luxury hotel accommodation but not air fares. According to GM, the Hummer Driving Academy event in Morocco will be followed by a series of events which will be rolled out in 2009.
