The UAE Desert Challenge rally kicks off with a prologue for spectators at the Jebel Ali Racecourse before its official launch in Abu Dhabi the following morning. The show serves as a qualifying stage, establishing the running order for the main event in the desert.
The event was conceived by Mohammed Ben Sulayem, whose motorsport career goes back to the early 1980s and who has 14 FIA titles to his name. The event begins with a ceremonial start in Abu Dhabi and heads south into the desert for five hard days of driving.
