    Kuwait International Rally gets underway on Friday

    "Stages offer technical and difficult challenge," says Al-Attiy
    Seven timed gravel stages scheduled for Friday's opening leg
    Four former Kuwait Rally winners set for desert showdown

    The event is being organised by the Basil Salem Al-Sabah Motor Racing Club (BMRC) in conjunction with the Kuwait International Automobile Club (KIAC) and day one action revolves around two loops of three desert special stages and a late afternoon sting in the tail.

    Competitors have now completed their reconnaissance of the route and the deserts tracks have thrown up several hidden challenges, even for the most experienced of the drivers. This year's event will be staged under the patronage of Sheikh Athbi Nayef Jaber Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah.

    "I'm very happy to be back in Kuwait," said Qatar's Al-Attiyah, who won the Kuwait Rally with former co-driver Giovanni Bernacchini in 2009, 2011 and 2013. "Some stages, particularly seven, eight and 10, are very technical. We can make a difference because there's a lot of corners and twisty sections. It is not an easy landscape and not easy to see the defined track. After Mexico, the team is ready for the challenge and to achieve the best result possible."

    Meshari Al-Sabti is one of the chief organisers and has worked tirelessly to finalise a challenging route and slick timetable. "The Kuwait International Rally is very close to my heart and a bit like a fifth son," said Al-Sabti.

    "We are working flat out to ensure the best for the rally and today we are going to harvest all our hard work. I have been very pleased about the positive comments from the drivers and good feedback about the route and the stages. We want to write our names in gold within the history books of the Kuwait International Rally."

    The entry list features four recent former winners of the event. Al-Attiyah has his three wins, Yazeed Al-Rajhi claimed victory in the FIA candidate rally in 2008, Khalid Al-Qassimi came out on top in 2010 and Qatar's Khalid Al-Suwaidi earned his only ever MERC triumph in 2012.

    Tomorrow (Friday), teams will tackle the first of the seven special stages at Nuwaisaab (13.82km) from 10.08hrs. Runs through Kheiran and Al-Zour follow at 10.46hrs and 11.24hrs and the three specials are repeated at 13.27hrs, 14.05hrs and 14.43hrs after a regroup and midday service. A run through the Al-Basil stage of 23.64km at 16.31hrs brings first day proceedings to a close.

    2015 QMMF - Qatar International Rally

    QMMF announces challenging route for merc opener in Qatar

    DOHA (Qatar): Event officials at the Qatar Motor and Motorcycle Federation have finalised the route for the 2015 QMMF Qatar International Rally, round one of the FIA Middle East Rally Championship, that gets the international rallying season off to a flying start in the Gulf region on February 5-7.

    Held under the presidency of Nasser Khalifa Al-Attiyah, FIA Vice-President for Sport MENA, the three day event features a 2.27km super special stage on Thursday, February 5th and a further 12 gravel stages in the Qatar desert on February 6 and 7.

    After scrutineering and documentation at QMMF headquarters on Salwa Road in Doha, the rally itself gets underway with a ceremonial start on Doha Corniche from 7pm on Thursday evening. Teams will then immediately tackle the super special stage before heading off to the Qatar Aqua Park where the cars will be kept overnight.

    The meat of the competitive action starts the following morning. Teams will tackle special stages at Umm Wishah, Al-Shabana and Al-Kharsaah before returning to the Qatar Aqua Park for a midday regroup and service. The three demanding gravel stages will be repeated in the afternoon.

    Six further special stages are planned for Saturday, February 7th. The popular Mekanes special precedes a stage at Salwa and a third timed test of 27.56km (the longest of the rally) supported by the QMMF. Another late morning regroup and service precedes a repeat of the three specials on Saturday afternoon, before teams return to the headquarters of the QMMF for the ceremonial finish podium and post-event press conference. In a total proposed route of 539.84km, rally organisers have planned 263.27 competitive kilometres.

    "We have been running the event as the traditional opening round of the FIA Middle East Rally Championship for many years and are continuously evolving and making small improvements to the rally itself and the special stages," said Nasser Khalifa Al-Attiyah. "This year we have extended the championship from six to eight rallies and are looking forward to getting the season off to a safe and successful start in Qatar."

    Entries officially close on Thursday, January 22nd. The QMMF is offering a generous assistance package to international entrants. Teams will be offered five nights' free accommodation for driver and co-driver (room and breakfast only) at the Century Hotel in Doha.
