Oman Grand Tour Video

Greetings from Rally Royale in London


I hope you had a wonderful festive season and that 2015 is going to be a great motoring year for us all.

I’ve spent the last couple of months in the Arabian Gulf region researching and finalising our rally. Wow, Oman is different! … what spectacular roads, breathtaking scenery, friendly welcoming people, beautiful coastline and majestic mountains. Something for everyone. My enduring memory will always be the moon-lit luxury desert camp in Wahiba Sands. Thank you Hud Hud staff for giving me the opportunity to relax under the stars and enjoy your mouthwatering Omani dishes. After a long drive, the silence was a joy.

Our review of the entire route also gave me the chance to experience the region’s many luxury hotels, research its deep heritage and see the Dolphins from a traditional Dhow. I’m also pleased to announce that we’ve updated the route to include the UAE and Dubai as our final destination. Thanks to Nick Channing, who joined me on the recce, for sharing his expert advice and guidance on roads, logistics etc. This decision gives us a better route overall, and lands us at the heart one of the world’s most famous classic and luxury car loving regions. Additionally, exit freight and flight arrangements are greatly facilitated.


The first ever long-distance classic car rally in Oman and the UAE.
