Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge

Time to start your engines! The annual Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge kicks off tomorrow and ends next Thursday.  International teams will compete in four categories of motorsport racing through the formidable dunes of the Liwa desert: bikes, quads, cars and trucks. Over 100 competitors will race across 1,570 kilometers of the uninterrupted desert of Rub’-al-Khali, or the ‘Empty Quarter’. The event takes place near the luxurious Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort by Anantara, which itself is plopped right into the sand. If you can’t make it to the action in person, Eurosport TV will be broadcasting all the action globally. We can’t wait to see which team leaves the competition in the dust! Literally.
