Etihad brings FIA World Rallycross to Abu Dhabi

Etihad Cargo has delivered all 17 rally cars, along with 200 cubic meters of spare parts, for the Middle East’s first ever ‘festival of racing’, the FIA World Rallycross of Abu Dhabi.

Etihad Airways is the official airline partner of the event.

Harnessing years of experience and expertise gained shipping beloved cars and high-performance vehicles across the world, Etihad Cargo’s special charter Boeing 777F flew the WRX rally cars from Liege (where the cars had travelled to from all over Europe), to Abu Dhabi.

Bader Al Ali, Etihad cargo business development manager, said: “We are immensely proud to be part of this event, which is coming to Abu Dhabi for the first time ever thanks to our partners at Abu Dhabi Motorsports Management and Yas Marina Circuit.

“This is the perfect way to celebrate FlightValet, which we launched last year in response to growing demand as our experience and reputation for care, professionalism and ease of use has become more widely known.”

Etihad Cargo transports hundreds of vehicles around the world every year, with customers ranging from individuals who want to take their sportscar on holiday, to major global racing events such as today’s shipment to Yas Marina Circuit on Abu Dhabi’s Yas Island.
