Al-Futtaim Automotive companies join UAE off-roaders as sponsors of 36th Annual Gulf News Fun Drive

Al-Futtaim Motors has sponsored the Gulf News Fun Drive in the UAE for 29th year running, at the annual event which took place on 13th January, welcoming more than 2,500 off road enthusiasts on a 240 km drive through the UAE's magnificent Liwa desert.

As sole automotive sponsor for the annual two day event for the past two decades, Al-Futtaim Motors went 'Xtreme' this year, taking the opportunity to display the FJ Cruiser Xtreme, and invited five members of the media to test drive the Land Cruiser Xtreme, as a preview to its launch in the UAE.

Al-Futtaim Auto Centers, in conjunction with BF Goodrich tyres, sponsored checkpoint 6 at the event, a key landmark on the drive, as well as featuring a showcase display at the camp. In addition, Al-Futtaim Auto Centers provided tyre re-inflation services for the participants' 4X4 vehicles from its FastFit mobile tyre van, and conducted a prize draw competition during the evening's activities.
