Supercars… the quest for exotic and classic cars events by Arabia’s supercar enthusiasts has been on the rise for quite some time; supercars fans have been heavily criticised for their reckless driving antics in London in recent years so a better location option as been long overdue. That alternative comes in the form of The Supercars club Arabia, which emerged as a hub for car fanatics who are alternatively looking for adventurous car sporting events, based in Bahrain, the Middle East the club aims to gather all supercar brand clubs in one space.
For the past few years; the SCA have successfully hosted Supercar events within and out of the GCC, in an idyllic environment, providing an exclusive atmosphere for its members and fans. They’ve been able to meet the needs of their guests and members with exquisite and unique car events, from its renowned Desert-run to the outstanding Euroabia.
“You just need to look up at the unbelievable Burj Khalifah Skyscrapers, towering 830 metres above downtown Dubai, to understand that bigger, better and bolder isn’t just a motto in the Middle-east, but rather a way of life”.─ Mclarens
The three days non-competitive regional rally witnessed a trip of 50 supercars from Dubai to Oman then back to Dubai on a circular route.
The owner of Mclarens, Sheikh Salman bin Isa Al-Khalifa led the desert run in his 12c Spyder together with several other Mclarens’ including another stunning Mantis Green Mclaren 650S Spyder. Other luxury brand supercars included Porsche Turbos, Gemballa Avalanche GT650, Ferraris (458s, F12s, 599s, a 350 spyder), Mercedez-Benz SL63 and many others all from the Middle East.
This rally comes together as a result of The Desert Run is the perfect example the club’s ideology and love for organising large Supercars events in a safe environment, ensuring both participants and public enjoyment. “The roads in Oman were amazing and left everyone speechless while driving through the mountains… and even though we were all exhausted by sunset, no one wanted to sleep with so much excitement going on”, said the club.
THE GREAT EUROABIA
Just recently, the club embarked on its very appealing and impressive Euroabia 2015 tour. Rallying the street of Nurburgring, across Europe, which starts and finishes at Brookland in Weybridge, club members were driving supercars worth over or about €5 million which amongst other great wheels includes; Ferrari Special, Lamborghini Aventador, Lamborghini Gallardo.
“Amongst the rarest included a Mclaren 12C, Gemballa Avalanche and the one I’ve been yearning to see…Lamborghini Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale”, said Jamie Mills.
It witnessed over 12 days of rally, covering 400km and seven countries then returning to Brookland, Weybridge to mark the end of the tour.

From the event, Mills added;
” It’s very easy when you spend all of your time surrounded by Supercars to become a little complacent, but when you have a collection like this in Euroabia, all in one place, it certainly raises the pulse…” Having earlier stated that there is not much that warrants a 6 a.m alarm wake up call, all in all, “Euroabia made it a great morning and indeed worthy of the early alarm”.
