DOHA: Qatar’s former Dakar Rally winner Nasser Saleh Al Attiyah and recent Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge and triple Dakar winner Marc Coma head the car and motorcycle entries for next week’s Sealine Cross-Country Rally, the third round of the 2013 FIA World Cup for Cross-Country Rallies and round two of the FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Championship, which is taking place across the Qatar deserts on April 22-26.

The official entry lists were published on Monday and many of the world’s finest off-road rallying exponents from the world of both car and motorcycle racing will experience the heat and rigours of the southern Qatar deserts.

The Qatar Motor and Motorcycle Federation (QMMF) is delighted to announce that a provisional 35 cars, 14 motorcycles and six quads will compete in the event. Entrants will arrive in Qatar from as far afield as Venezuela, Chile, the USA, Uruguay, Bolivia, New Zealand, Australia, Colombia, Kazakhstan, Brazil and Europe and the Middle East to set the scene for a truly international rally.

“We are delighted to see so many top class names from every corner of the world on the entry list and making their preparations to come to race in Qatar,” enthused QMMF president Nasser Khalifa Al Attiyah.

“Our team has laid on a new, challenging route and fine-tuned the event to make it a unique challenge for our competitors.”
