Abdullah Al Shatti will be proudly flying the Kuwaiti flag as he embarks on his maiden Dakar in 2019. The 33-year-old has been building up his experience in recent years by taking part in bajas and local races, and is now ready to make the step up to the world's toughest rally. A brand ambassador for Kawasaki in the Middle East, Abdullah recently joined Mohammed Balooshi's team at the MX Academy in Dubai for the 2018/19 season. Not only is he gearing up for the adventure of a lifetime, he is also determined to pass on what he has learned to the next generation.
“I'm so happy to be participating in the Dakar, representing my country. Special thanks to my family, friends and sponsors for their continued support – wish me good luck!"
