Ab­dul­lah Omar wins Dubai Rally

Gulf News - - The Views -

1983 - Roth­mans Opel driver Saeed Al Ha­jri’s luck fi­nally ran out. But for Dubai’s Ab­dul­lah Omar it came good in the best pos­si­ble way when he tri­umphed in the Dubai In­ter­na­tional Rally. Al Ha­jri had been lead­ing the Dubai event when an oil pipe broke on his Opel Manta in the mid­dle of the Hatta moun­tains. Omar, hold­ing sec­ond place at the time, needed no fur­ther prompt­ing and held off all chal­lengers to se­cure vic­tory.
