OMAN, NOVEMBER 18 2014. Recce for the Oman Grand Tour. Ruba Jurdi, CEO and founder of Rally Royale, together with veteran rally driver Nick Channing, start on the rehearsal tour of the route we planned. The photos below cover the first three days. Nick, who’s seen most roads, in most parts of the world, was suitably taken aback by the sheer drama of the landscape and hospitality of the Omani hosts. We are particularly grateful to the generous support and encouragement from all the people we have met. What a fantastic rally this is going to be!
We thank the ministry of tourism for their big support in making our recce happen, also these stunning hotels we have stayed at so far: Barr Al Jissah, Atana Khasab Hotel, Crowne Plaza Sohar Accommodation, Sahab Oman Resort. We love the Omani coffee and dates you serve. Thank you for your hospitality and support.
