Making its Middle East debut for the motor rally’s 23rd edition, a line-up of celebrity drivers and more than 100 elite high-performance cars – which included Lamborghinis, Ferraris and a Bugatti Divo – set off from Burj Park on 13th November, traversing dramatic sea and desertscapes across the UAE and Oman, before purring through Al Wasl Avenue and arriving at the magnificent Al Wasl Plaza, for an electrifying projection show that mesmerised drivers and spectators alike.
The evening’s highlights included a ‘meet and greet’ with drivers including British YouTuber Yung Filly, Moroccan-American rapper French Montana, and Hanan Mazouzi Sobati, founder of the Arabian Gazelles, the first all-women supercar owner’s club in Dubai. Sobati piloted an Alfa Romeo Stelvio for The Purple Team, which included nine drivers from across the UAE and Oman. The epic and eclectic adventure will conclude at Yas Marina Circuit where they will join in the celebrations for the finale of the Formula 1 season.
Formula 1® racing began in 1950 and is the world’s most prestigious motor racing competition, as well as the world’s most popular annual sporting series: Formula One (also known as Formula 1 or F1) is the highest class of international racing for open-wheel single-seater formula racing cars sanctioned by the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA). The World Drivers’ Championship, which became the FIA Formula One World Championship in 1981, has been one of the premier forms of racing around the world since its inaugural season in 1950. The word formula in the name refers to the set of rules to which all participants’ cars must conform. A Formula One season consists of a series of races, known as Grands Prix, which take place worldwide on both purpose-built circuits and closed public roads.
