Middle East Rally Championship

Abu Dhabi rally racer, Sheik Khalid Al Qassimi is very please with the modifications made to his Citroen car. He will be pushing the car to its limits in Kuwait next month and hopes that the vehicle will be able to give an optimal performance.

Sheikh Khalid Al Qassimi is confident that further developments to his Abu Dhabi Citroen Total Team DS3 car will allow him to challenge for victory at the second round of the Middle East Rally Championship (Merc) in Kuwait next month.

The Emirati driver put in an impressive display in the opening round of the championship in Qatar, finishing second behind Nasser Al Attiyah after running his rival close, with his hopes being curtailed by a puncture after he had led during the first leg.

He and Citroen studied his car's performance as he competed in Rally Sweden in the World Rally Championship this month, and he is encouraged with the findings as he spearheads Abu Dhabi Racing's (ADR) involvement in the event in Kuwait, with five cars taking part in the various categories.
