PHOTOS: Drivers push their limits at the Qatar Mile


Dozens of tuned-up cars turned out today to compete in the “Qatar Mile” speed race at the Al Khor Air Strip, with drivers aiming to push their vehicles to the limit.

Organized by the Qatar Racing Club, competitors are meant to try to reach 300 km/h in a full-on sprint down the 800 meter air strip. Prizes for the winners go up to QR15,000.

The event is part of a broader drive to “keep racing off the streets” by giving racers a safer alternative, QRC’s head of marketing Khalid Arif told Doha News.

“Qatar Mile” continues tomorrow from 9am-5pm, and includes food stands and numerous activities for kids.
