Sharqiyah Baja 2021

The Saudi Automobile and Motorcycle Federation (SAMF) will host the Sharqiyah International Baja Toyota, round three of the FIA World Cup for Cross-Country Bajas, on March 3rd-6th.

Following hot on the heels of the opening round held through the frozen Russian wastelands in early February and this week’s second round in the UAE’s Al-Qudra desert, Saudi Arabia’s round of the series will take place in the Eastern Province.

It will be organised by a team working under H.R.H. Prince Khalid bin Sultan Al-Abdullah Al-Faisal, SAMF President and Chairman of the Organising Committee and is also the opening round of the 2021 Saudi Toyota Desert Rally Championship.

Based at the Holiday Inn Resort on Half Moon Bay, Sharqiyah International Baja Toyota will be held over three days of off-road competition. Following administration and scrutineering checks on Wednesday, March 3rd, the timed action gets underway with a qualifying stage of approximately 11km on Thursday, March 4th.

The first selective section of around 220km enters the spotlight on Friday, March 5th in the sandy deserts to the west of the commercial centre of Khobar and a second competitive leg of approximately 210km rounds off the action on Saturday, March 6th.
