Rally: First Ever Chopard Classic Rally in the Middle East hailed a success with 30 competitors

Chopard hosted the first-its-kind event over the weekend, a classic car rally across the Emirates under the motorsport supervision of ATCAUE. The event was an overwhelming success with competitors making a rally tour across the country in their classic cars, a real treat for FIVA (International Classic Car Association) members and fans.

The event ran on Friday and Saturday, 10-11 November beginning at Dubai’s Armani Hotel at the Burj Khalifa. Motorists drove to Hatta Fort Hotel and back on Day 1 of the event. On Day 2, they went to Jebal Jais and Ras Al Khaimah’s Waldorf Astoria.

30 competitors with their cars ranging from the DeLorean to Ferrari 308 to the Rols Royce Silver Spur to the Lamborghini Jarama completed the event in their own ideal times (based on speed limits on roads) in order to win. Ideal times were determined by ATCUAE, National Motorsport Authority.

Competitors came from all over the world to attend the event, and none were disappointed. ATCUAE supported the Chopard event as the motorsport partner, bringing experts in rally events to create the route and manage all motorsport elements.

Both competitors and organizers are already looking forward to next year’s event to add a new, fun and unique element to the motorsport portfolio in the UAE.

Fastest times set below – 

1-      Competitor 12, Driver: Hannes Waimer, Co-Driver: Hans Hotfiel, Porsche 911E 1969

2-      Competitor 3, Driver: Ismail Tamraz, Co-Driver: Fred Faidhi, (gap 1m30s), Lamborghini Jarama 1972

We stand with all those fighting against racism in any form

Comment on Facebook

We stand with #F1 do you always have to reminded of true responsibility by the Champ #LewisHamilton Proudly black/colored❤️👌🙏👀

Really F1? And yet they held a Bahrain Grand Prix literally while the locals were protesting and being oppressed. One post created by your PR team while you’ve done nothing for real change seems quite meaningless. Do better.

Hamilton was on the receiving end of racism during the pre season tests at Catalunya in 2008, so he knows what it’s like firsthand. Good job he spoke out, especially with what happened in Minneapolis last week

Took a bit of criticism from your best driver for you to say something about it as a whole. We do this together.

Will F1 really take a stand and not hold events in countries with systemic human rights violations? I doubt it.

So much racism in F1. I can’t wait for the day a person of color drives the best car on the grid, makes the most money, and becomes a multiple world champion... oh wait... never mind 🙄

Whatever..day late..dollar short..only speaking up after prodding from Lewis...PR lip service...

Humans are imperfect and forever will be. I doubt you can oppose and eradicate it. Each and every individual need to decide to not let these evil things from inside to take control of him. Once all the protests are over it will silence down only for it to come back again. How soon another protest will happen doesn't matter. How capable EACH and EVERY human is from getting controlled from the evil within is the real challenge. The lack of self control is the greatest human imperfection.

Let's be real, had Lewis Hamilton not called them out. They wouldn't have said anything.

Nice to finally hear from the American owners of F1. Been left to Lewis to lead the charge again.

You missed the caveat... *yet we’ll still continue to do business & hold races in Russia, China, Bahrain, Vietnam & Abu Dhabi as well as for pushing for a deal with Saudi Arabia. Because human rights & oppression doesn’t bother us when there’s $ to be made.

Let's fight against police brutality also! Why none entity can write it explicitly?

What about all of the roits, and looting. Nothing will be said about it? People’s businesses ruined by this. But nothing will be said about it?

We have to fight against this racism together. And also against the police brutality.

Should have done this before Lewis accused the whole paddock of racism

Lewis Hamilton is the voice of F1

they're not gonna buy tickets or subscriptions, bro.

I hope this isn't supporting the beating of innocent people and the burning/looting of innocent peoples businesses!

What is this about?

This is better I can support this message forever !!! Every other company charity and celebrity that are jumping on the band wagon can just do one ! Well done F1

This is the first time F1 has a “political” view on things. Next: terminate the contracts with China?

Well done Lewis for forcing this reaction and well done to F1 for putting it out!

Looks as though LH got his way...whining works

Hypocrisy by F1. Took Lewis Hamilton to highlight the fact. Maybe F1 will boycott countries with human rights issues or will you continue pleasing the money men?

"We stand with all those fighting against racism in any form" ❤🧡💛💚💙💜🤎🖤🤍
