2014-2015 Emirates Desert Championship

Thought I'd start a thread on this local to me race series. I'm supposed to be using it as part of the preparation for my first Rallye (2015 ADDC) but unfortunately I'm now injured and have had to sit out round 2 giving me time to take some photos. Anyway less of that, the racing.....

Website -

The inaugural 2013-14 series consisted of four Baja-style events that took place in October and November of 2013 and January and February of 2014 with categories for cross-country cars, cross-country buggies, motorcycles and quads.

The same classes will be in place for 2014 2015 events that will be occurring over the dates of 3rd of October, 24th October, 14th November, 16th January, 13th February and 6th of March.

With the terrain we have here on our doorstep there is some great racing to be had.

here are some images from yesterdays race. Not able to hobble about much with a bust ankle but enjoyed the morning.

Entries for round 3 are open

Info from the Facebook page at

Entries are now being accepted for Rd 3 of the Emirates Desert Championship, taking place on Friday 14th November 2014. As always the exact location of the route and service park will be confirmed at a later stage.

As the organizers of the event, we are now faced with the happy problem of having too many competitors wanting to take part in the championship! Therefore, the decision has been made to limit the MOTO entries to a maximum of 120 motorcycles and quads for Rd 3. There will be no limitation to the amount of AUTO entries accepted.

Entries will close at 0900 on Wednesday 12th November. Any Entries submitted after that date WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED! As entries will be limited to 120 MOTOs for this round, entries will be accepted on a first come first serve basis, therefore, the recommendation would be to submit your entry to ASAP.
