Souq Waqif saw an atmosphere of celebration on February 27 as the Manateq Qatar Cross Country Rally (MQCCR) came to a close.

Qatar hosted the opening round of one of the world's most prestigious rally racing events, the FIFA World Cup for Cross-Country Rallies 2020, from February 22 to 27.

The fascinating round drew racing teams from more than 22 countries, including the US, Argentina, Brazil, Ecuador, Western and Eastern Europe, Jordan, and the GCC.

 

The teams covered around 1,430 competitive kilometers in a route of 2,200kilometers across the length and breadth of the State of Qatar.

Qatar's legendary racer Nasser Al Attiyah along with French co-driver Matthieu Baumel emerged victors of the MQCCR 2020. 

This marked Al Attiyah's seventh victory in nine seasons of the MQCCR.

With this win, the Qatari racer also began his challenge to win back the FIA World Cup Drivers’ title with the fastest time on the final stage. 

Organized by the Qatar Motor and Motorcycle Federation (QMMF), this was the second year the highly-popular event is being held in Qatar.

Following the first round in Qatar, the rally will continue in a series in countries including UAE, Russia, Kazakhstan, and Morocco.

Vehicles taking part in rounds of the FIA World Cup are split into several categories, most notably T1, T2, T3, T4, and T5.

Qatar Living was proud to be the official social media partner for this stunning event and we look forward to more racing action ahead!
