First women rally in Lebanon and first car driving day in Saudi Arabia!


For the first time in Lebanon and under the supervision of ATCL and the auspices of Tech Group, the Rallye des Graces will take place on Saturday and Sunday May 19-20, with the participation of women drivers and sailors on classic cars from the UK, US, Switzerland, China, Azerbaijan, Algeria, Italy and Lebanon. On the event, the head of the organizing party, Shahrazad Rizk, who took part in the Switzerland rally three times, said Arab and foreign women participants are business women who are well-known around the world, calling on Lebanese women to join the race. Rizk explained that the rally has three objectives, first of which is economic, especially that partakers come from the world of business and economy and seek to promote their products in the country. The second and third objectives are sportive and touristic where the rally will pass through scenic Lebanese countryside and towns. Meanwhile, the director of the Saudi General Department of Traffic, General Mohamad Bin Abdallah Bassami announced in a statement yesterday that women in the Kingdom will be allowed to start driving as of June 24th. He said all requirements and conditions to this effect have been met. To recall, that on last September 26, King Salman Abdel Aziz issued a royal decree sanctioning women to get driving licenses for the first time in the history of the Kingdom.
