Mazzoli played five races in the season, winning in the first three and then failing in the last two. The prize pool is 2,000,000 dollars of which 360,000 dollars will go to the winner. Morocco, officially the Kingdom of Morocco, is a state in the Maghreb bordered by the Mediterranean Sea and the Strait of Gibraltar in the northern part and by the Atlantic Ocean to the west and bordering Algeria to the east, with various Spanish exclaves to the north and the claimed territories of Western Sahara to the south.

The capital is Rabat. Inhabited since prehistoric times by Berber populations, the country experienced various civilizations, including the Phoenicians, the Carthaginians, the Romans, the Vandals and the Byzantines, but the strongest imprint was left by the Arabs, who arrived in the Middle Ages and who spread the Islam.

Various Islamic dynasties, including the Idrisids, the Almoravids, the Almohads, the Merinids, the Wattasids, the Sa'dians and the Alawis, followed one another over the centuries. Morocco then experienced the interference of Western powers, in particular the Portuguese, until it was made a protectorate of the French and Spanish.

The country regained independence in 1956. Crossed by the Atlas and Rif mountain ranges, the country's territory is made up of temperate zones with a Mediterranean climate and desert areas. Culturally the country is made up of two main souls: the Arab one, the majority in the flat regions, and the Berber one, the majority in the mountainous areas.

The most widespread religion is Islam and there is an important Jewish community. Morocco is a constitutional monarchy. The economy is dominated by agriculture, phosphate mining and tourism.
