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.

Just highlights how gash that new final complex is at Barcelona They should go back to the original last 2 corners for better opportunities to overtake after the final turn

Been thinking about why not f1 and others have integrated this yet? Helicopter shots are great but this is another necessary dimension.

Really amazing footage, specially at low speed corners at the chicane.. wow !!

A Drone faster than a MCL 🤔 2020 won't be a good year for McLaren..

SUCH a cool shot! I want more of this!!! That poor McLaren was really waiting on the drone though! 😂

I would love to build a copter that can easily keep up with F1 and shoot proper vid. If someone covers the costs that is 😉

Drone shots would be good, but what happens when the signal fails and the drone drops on the track. Or theres a mechanical fault and the drone drops on track. Or the battery runs out and the drone drops on track.

That should be a sport! Drones racing around an F1 circuit. Did you see that cornering?

We need this type of footages live on race days. "Wheel to wheel" battles might look cool from this angles...

How can a drone keep up with an F1 engine? It's the most advanced technology in the history of the planet...comon...

Fantastic, it would be nice if it were broadcast like that. how exciting that sound. Beautiful MacLaren, and that sound, it's really good to hear

More impressed at the skills of the drone pilot 😂

That needs to be how they cover the races on television. That is spectacular and definitely entertaining.

Carlos driving the McLaren...maybe Lando is driving the drone🤔. McLaren's children are still playing, for sure😃

I vote for drone cameras for the starting grid for lights out!

Think the drone was beyond track limits there...

Ive been flying drones over Open Wheelers for 3 years now. Just finished TRS 2020. We've done both live stream and record for post shows.

Is this a preview of "Formula Drone"

This make it looks slow... keep copter view when skyview is needed

Be great if they added this as a live camera on race weekends

Wow! Would be great if they add this view while broadcasting.

How is this drone keeping up with the speed of a F1 car?! 😮🧐

Paint that Halo BLUE!

Is it just me or is does the power unit sound different to last year?

quickest through those corners equals success at Monaco according to the Sky pundits
