Mark Powell of Saluki Motorsport and Annie Seel teamed up again for the Emirates Desert Championship.
A foggy morning delayed the start of the race but as the sun climbed the visibility cleared. The first lap had to be driven carefully. The course was very technical in small sharp dunes with drops and steps, and suited the smaller buggies perfectly. The big green beast of Saluki Motorsport had a new gearbox put in since last race in October where it ceased just before the finish line, and was only out for shake down.
Overall winner was Khalid Al Jafla in a Can-Am turbo buggy.
Mark and Annie took a first in class and sixth overall.
The entry list for the round 2 of EDC starting on Friday the 11 Nov.
14 buggies on the starting line, 4 in auto class, and 85 moto/quad.

302. Mark Powell (GBR)
