Sea Line Desert, Qatar. 3rd March 2017 – Against very strong competition from heavily modified competitive machines a factory standard Polaris RZR XP turbo secured a very impressive second place across all classes in the first Red Bull Qaher El T3ous.

The Red Bull Qaher El T3ous – which means the conqueror of the dunes, offered an adrenalin rushing, yet safe platform to the participants. The event, which was planned on a customized, unique track with a dimension of 200m x 200m, witnessed the participation of 16 Qatari contenders. The challenge between the drivers was off the beaten track as contestants had to cross various, competitive obstacles including jumps, water dig, rocks, sharp turns and dunes.

The unprecedented, desert-racing event drew a 3,000 strong crowd. It was also graced by the presence of several dignitaries including the President of the Qatar Motor and Motorcycle Federation, Abdul Rahman Al Mannia. The evening was a testimony to Qatar’s raging interest in buggies and dune bashing.

The standard Polaris RZR XP Turbo piloted by Mubarak El Khulaifi from Qatar and supported by the Protect Powered Sports team won every race during the days events only to lose out in the final due to a puncture on the front right wheel.
