“We are thrilled with this win. We knew that we were strong but never focused on winning the event. We wanted to reach the final and then fight for the first places. The competition was tough throughout the preliminary races and the final.” Said the duo of Mohamed Al Khalji and Mohamed Burbaya.

The event started early in the morning with scrutineering, where the ATVs and the Jetskis had to pass safety and technical checks. This was followed by drivers briefing where all the drivers received a full safety briefing and instructions on how to operate on the tracks. Drivers also displayed their safety equipment which was approved by the Race Director.

The teams were divided into three groups and the first race took place at 2:00pm. Only the first three teams were qualified from each group. The contestants had to negotiate a challenging track of man-made obstacles such as ramps, bumps and curves. The first quad racer who crossed the finish line ran towards his jetski teammate and tapped his hand in order to start racing on water.
