We present this prestigious trophy to the people of Qatar and promise them more international achievements in the future. We again thank our champ Adel for his great effort and dedication in winning such a prestigious title.”

Adel Hussein Abdulla, Manateq Qatar International Rally 2019 Champion stated: “This is a very important title for me, and it adds great value to my existing achievements, as I overcame some of the best drivers in the world. Special thanks and appreciation to my sponsor and supporters, especially Saleh Al Hamad Al Mana Co. and Nissan Qatar who have been supporting me since 2016 to help me accomplish this achievement. Our relationship is built on trust and vision. Following our first place win in 2016 and second-place wins in 2017 and 2018, we are now at the top. Sponsors play a major role in my success, as playing this kind of sport is expensive, and couldn’t have been done without their support”.

I have special admiration and a strong relationship with Nissan, especially the Patrol Safari, which I have been driving since 2016. Nissan is the Hero of All Terrain, and this vehicle has proved that many times. At the World Rally Championship, we cross terrain with sand, mud, rocks, ponds and rivers. We are not allowed to substitute any of the spare parts or modify the vehicle. Despite that, Nissan proved the capabilities of the Patrol and accomplished great trophies both locally and internationally”.
