Ladies and gentlemen, greetings from Saudi Arabia, the land of warm hospitality, renowned generosity, and unlimited possibilities.
Together with you, we made history a year ago when we brought Dakar to Saudi Arabia and Asia for the first time, thanks to the unprecedented support from the Custodian of The Two Holy Mosques, King Salman Bin Abdulaziz and His Royal Highness the Crown Prince, Mohammed Bin Salman Bin Abdulaziz.
The nation’s endeavor in achieving its goals continue, with the support of the man behind the vision, HRH Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, who made the dream of Saudi Arabia hosting major international events such as Dakar Rally a reality. This limitless support fills us with hope as we continue to look forward towards a bright future built by the Vision 2030.
Dakar’s debut adventure in the Kingdom’s desert allowed Saudi to shine and offer a journey through unsplit natural scenery, majestic uncharted desert, and historic landmarks in a racing experience like no other. The next edition will be equally challenging, equally unique, equally beautiful and equally as memorable.
Welcome back to Dakar Saudi Arabia.
His Royal Highness Prince Abdulaziz Bin Turki Al Faisal, Minister of sport and President of the Saudi Arabian Olympic Committee
