The Middle East route…

The race will start in Dubai, kicking-off celebrations from Burj Park, and will then head to Jebel Akhdar where participants will drive up mountains to stay at a luxurious 5 star resort with some of the most breathtaking views Oman has to offer. The road to the resort is usually restricted to 4x4s only, but for this event, supercars will be given exclusive access to the mountain pass.

Over the next two days, the rally will drive from Jebel Akhdar to Salalah, and along the coast from Salalah to Muscat, before arriving back in the UAE for the penultimate stop, Ras al Khaimah. Home stretch…the eight day event will end in Abu Dhabi where spectators will be able to watch the supercars cross the finish line at the W Abu Dhabi, Yas Island.
