In a statement to KUNA on Wednesday, the Head of the club’s Rally Committee Sheikh Athbi Naif Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah affirmed his confidence in the Kuwaiti racers participating in this rally.
He urged them to put their habitual and regular performances in the competition so that their victory can achieve a reputation befitting the rally sport in Kuwait.
