new Rally of Arabia in 2011

see here

Feb.17 (Riyadh) HRH Prince Saud Bin Abdul Mohsen Bin Abdul Aziz, Governor of Ha’il, President of the Supreme Commission for Ha’il Development and the Head of the Supreme Commission of the Ha’il Rally, announced at the start of the 2010 Saudi Arabian Ha’il Baja that the Saudi Arabian Motor Federation (SAMF) would organise a brand new cross-country rally in spring 2011.

"we will run an event with around 1,500km of selective sections in 2011,” enthused Mishaal Al-Sudairy, President of the Saudi Arabian Motor Federation."

"We hope to run the event in the spring, February or early March time, and it will be registered as a stand-alone event in the FIA calendar, but we will also permit motorcycles in co-ordination with the FIM and trucks to take part for the first time. The Rally of Arabia will use as much of the beautiful uncharted desert in the Ha’il area as possible and is sure to be probably the most demanding rally in the world outside the Dakar.”
