In light of the Tragic Events of the 2007 Gumball 3000, I am reporting this story late. Sorry 😛 but there is only so much a young entrepreneur has time for in a 24 hour day.
Founder: Qiass Issa
Cost: 10,000 Dirhams ($2,700 USD)
The event will kick off in downtown Dubai City and will attract car enthusiast and fanatics from around the world.
Start Point: BAB AL SHAMS
The event kicks off at this famous location. All events participants and guests were served refreshments including a full gourmet lunch with a world class service. All the participating cars for the event were then branded with sponsor logos and numbered. The location and surroundings at Bab Al Shams offered a fantastic opportunity to meet and chat with fellow participants.
1st Check Point: DUBAI AUTODROME
One of the highlights of the day was the Arab Run visit to the Dubai Autodrome – 5.39km motor racing track with state of the art facilities to match. The cars all arrived in style with the media and Arab Run models waiting in attendance to welcome the 100 super cars. The Arab Run participants were then given the opportunity to drive the International Circuit at the Dubai Autodrome paced by a professional driver.
