Women’s rally in Beirut on April 13 and 14

9-4-2019

For the second consecutive year, Beirut will host on April 13 and 14, the 2nd edition of the Rallye des Graces of classic cars with the participation of 45 women from 19 Arab and European countries. The event will be held under the patronage of prime minister Saad Hariri, in collaboration with ATCL. An Nahar spoke to the head of the organizing party, Shahrazad Rizk, who said she was gratified that Arab women are the first to launch the idea in the Middle East shared by prominent peers in business and activists. Rizk maintained that the activity has a touristic side to it namely promoting the image of Lebanon and its vision, and contemplating its scenic nature. Participants, she boasted, will become ambassadors after they return to their countries recounting what they saw and experienced. Rizk also pointed out that the number of participants in last year’s edition (25 women) increased this year to 45. She pledged to continue to promote the race in order to include it in the annual calendar of sports events with the aim to expand cooperation and communication among women contestants from Lebanon and outside at all levels and fields.
