Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge 2015

Just 1 week after the finish of Dakar 2015 we are looking forward to the first round of the World Championship Rally in Abu Dhabi. Again Abu Dhabi opens the World Cup cross country rally season in 2015 which starts on the 27th (scrutineering) of March this year, 1 week earlier as usual.


This year HT Rally Raid / Henk Hellegers, is appointed by the ADDC organization as international agent for the Netherlands and Belgium. We can inform you out of first hand about the most important details and aspects of the ADDC. We belong to the most experienced teams in cross country rallying and are already over two decades a loyal partner of this wonderful event.

For the riders who do not know the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge, it’s a real desert rally. The rally is characterized by short road sections, huge sand dunes, a relaxed atmosphere, beautiful accommodations and a rally with the best safety features for the competitors. Of course, the great ambiance of Dubai and Abu Dhabi should not be forgotten.

Next to that, because this rally uses the Dakar navigation equipment and it’s a FIM world championship rally. The ASO, the Dakar organiser, takes this rally very serious for your personal CV if you’re interested in racing Dakar in the future. The selection is getting more and more strict. Abu Dhabi and Sardegna are 2 FIM world championship rallies before the entries for Dakar 2016 open.

For this rally we use our full Dakar spec Honda CRF450X (incl. all necessary navigation equipment off course).

If you’re interested in this rally, please contact us for an offer asap, a reply this weekend would be appreciated. Transport takes about 5 weeks, which means the container will leave here in +/- 3 weeks.

Note: If you own a rally bike yourself and you only want to use our transport or service, please contact us for a personal offer.
