Hundreds of car enthusiasts in Qatar recently experienced the thrill of driving some of the world’s most expensive automobiles – and GAC helped make it happen.
Bugatti, Mercedes, Mclaren, Porsche, Dodge Viper and Ferrari were just some of the famous names to feature in the fleet of performance cars brought from Europe and the USA to Qatar’s Losail Circuit for a 40-day Michelin Tyres promotional event.
Freight, clearance, transport and handling of the prestige autos were taken care of by GAC Qatar’s Events Department, who also handled two trailers of gadgets that were also on show to visitors at the circuit.
Two of the performance cars – Dodge Vipers shipped in from the States – nearly didn’t make it. They had been shipped in a container from the States to Dubai, where they were stuck for two months. As the deadline for their transportation to Qatar loomed, GAC pulled out all the stops to get the container cleared within two days, so the cars could be flown to Qatar.
GAC Qatar is no stranger to prestige motoring events. Every year, the company also takes care of the specialist logistics demands involved of Moto GP and Superbikes races and tests, as well as the F1 and Class 3 boat races, and launches of new Honda models.
