Bumper entry announced for 15th Ha’il Nissan Rally

The Saudi Automobile and Motorcycle Federation (SAMF) has announced a massive entry for this week’s 15th Ha’il Nissan Rally the opening round of the 2020 Saudi Desert Rally Championship and a candidate for possible inclusion in the 2021 FIA World Cup for Cross-Country Rallies. The event takes place on February 4th-8th.

Defending Saudi Desert Rally Champion Yazeed Al-Rajhi tops the entry with Ulster navigator Michael Orr. Fresh from finishing fourth at the Dakar Rally, Al-Rajhi wheels out his Toyota Hilux Overdrive, but faces competition from arch rival Yasir Seaidan, who also steered his MINI to a top 10 finish at the Dakar. Seaidan is partnered by Russia’s Alexey Kuzmich.

While the Saudi duo are the favourites for honours on the four-stage event through the An Nafud desert, they face massive competition from the likes of Mutair Al-Shammeri, Khaled Al-Feraihi and Faris Al-Shammeri, the latter teaming up with Pedro Miguel following the injury sustained by his regular Jordanian co-driver Musa Djiyerian in December.

Czech driver Miroslav Zapletal wheels out his powerful Hummer and there is strength in depth across all the car and SSV categories with 59 crews registered, in addition to Ibrahim Muhanna’s Mercedes T4 truck.
