About the race
The wonderfully exotic Moroccan city of Marrakesh offers so much, from reliable year-round temperatures and mouth-watering local cuisine to fascinating historic sites; and even golf courses! If you look carefully, you’ll also spot a number of creative new boutiques and galleries where western influencers begin to creep in. They signify the evolving face of the medina (market) as a new generation of craftsmen and artists try to connect the city’s hankering for modernity with its traditional craft heritage. For Envision Virgin Racing, last year’s event proved to be one of its most successful where the team picked up it’s first ever double podium and an impressive points haul. It’s a track the team favour so expectations will be high heading into the race.
