The Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge is currently underway, and the racing looks intense.
Over the course of five days, competitors will charge across the uncharted desert looking for victory. Can-Am has two factory-backed racers at the event, last year’s Dakar winning team of South Racing’s Reinaldo Varela and Gustavo Gugelmin along with American Casey Currie who is driving with Laurent Lichtleuchter.
Casey Currie took the win on Stage two, followed closely by Verala, making the top cars of the day a Can-Am race.
“It was another awesome day full of action and amazing battles!” commented a member from the South Racing. “Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge has really been incredible so far – can’t wait what tomorrow brings!”
Currie commented on each of the three stages so far. “Day one of Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge is finished. We won the stage and had no issues with our Can-Am Off-Road. It was 104 today and the sand radiates the heat,” said Currie.
“Second place on stage 2, still leading the overall in SXS category. Great day in the @canam. We lead physically all day with my teammate following us.”
Currie continued on his victory march on day three. “Stage win in stage 3! My @canam worked perfectly today and today was the longest day of the rally. Tomorrow will be another hot day in the dunes. 2 more full days of racing to go.”
