4L Trophy 2012 – a student rally with a clear social purpose, the 4L Trophy is a fun challenge that raises money for
educational projects in Morocco. The event takes place in a different European country every year and crosses to Morocco for the final stage and closing ceremony in Marrakech.
Accompanied by a team of professionals (engineers, doctors, journalists and TV crews), a thousand pairs of students drive through Europe and parts of the Moroccan desert with tons of schooling equipment, covering a distance of roughly 6000km in the process over 11 days.
The challenge for the participating students is to win a stage, or the overall event, using a road atlas, a map of Morocco and a compass but the bigger aim is to bring as large a quantity of educational supplies and materials as
possible into the country for the benefit of its schoolchildren.
