GulfRun 7: Load ’em up!

As GulfRun 7 kicks off this weekend in Bahrain (January 26th – 27th), there was only one thing left to do: load up the cars and have them sent to the Bahrain International Circuit!

By no means is it easy to organize such an event. For one thing, there is all the pre-planning, securing of the participants, getting all the paperwork ready for transporting the vehicles to Bahrain via Saudi Arabia, let alone dealing with a lot of ‘antsy’ drivers and a lot of horsepower.

Prior to loading up the cars, the drivers were instructed to meet up at Tilal Complex where they were briefed on the driving route to the Agility headquarters. While waiting for all the drivers to arrive, I decided to walk around the parking lot and snap a few shots of some of the rides.

There’s definitely something exciting about being in the presence of ‘stickered’ sports cars.

Once we made it to Agility, the cars had to wait their turn to be loaded onto the trucks. Each group was split up into a color category, making sure there would be no deviation from the pre-planned allocation.

First one up was the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG. Thankfully, it went smoother than expected.

What could be tastier than an AMG E63 / Cobra sndwich?

Truck # 1 was completely loaded and dusted in no time. 3 more to go!

All 4 carriers were filled and completed in the span of two hours. I was impressed with how quickly the GulfRun boys were able to get all these cars onto the trucks in such a short time frame. Practice makes perfect, right?

My apologies if the images aren’t of the greatest quality. I have just recently started practicing photography, so there is still a lot for me to learn. Add the fact that there was insufficient lighting at the loading area, which made it really difficult for me. Here are a few other snaps from the day.

Hope you liked the pics. Bahrain, here we come!
