1000 Miglia experience UAE Jubilee Edition: Event rescheduling to Q4 2022
- 1000 Miglia Experience UAE rescheduled to Q4 2022
- Decision taken to protect participants from rising global risk of Omicron and COVID-19
- Special event planned for February
20 Dec 2021, Dubai, United Arab Emirates: Octanium Experiences LLC is announcing the rescheduling of the 1000 Miglia Experience UAE Jubilee Edition to Q4 2022, as a mark of its commitment to ensuring beyond all the health and safety of all participants in the race.
This decision was taken in response to the rapidly rising number of cases of the latest OMICRON variant of COVID-19 around the globe, leading to a severe risk that travel restrictions could come into effect in the home nations of our participants at any moment. The health and safety of all participants is of the highest importance to us and strictly beyond compromise.
With preparations for the 1000 Miglia Experience UAE completed and vehicles ready to ship, we wish to avoid a situation in which rescheduling may be required short-term while cars are in transit – or alternatively, after the arrival of the vehicle, new travel restrictions making it difficult for participants to travel to and from the UAE.
All existing 100 teams in the 1000 Miglia Experience UAE Jubilee Edition maintain their entries for Q4 2022, with all privileges of five-star hospitality and personal-concierge levels of service for the visiting VIP guests, royalty, celebrities and attending media.
In February 2022, a Prologue event will be held to provide a taste of the high-octane racing thrills of the historical Italian original and let participants and public alike know what to expect from the full upcoming 1000 Miglia Experience UAE – stay tuned for more information.
With the announcement of the rescheduling of the 1000 Miglia Experience UAE Jubilee Edition to Q4 2022, we stand by our word to deliver an uncompromising top tier event for its international participants that will set the mark for a classic car race in the region while paying homage to the values of tolerance, inclusivity and excellence on which the United Arab Emirates was founded.
For Middle Eastern fans of the Italian original, the upcoming event will be a chance to experience the joys and thrills of the most famous race in the world in the United Arab Emirates with the same rules, vehicles and top-tier level of collectors and enthusiasts from around the globe.
We thank participants, partners and media and all enthusiasts for all their support and understanding in these times of uncertainty.
Octanium CEO Martin Halder said: “This decision is the outcome of considerable thought, with preparations being complete for February 2022. We cannot help but acknowledge the spread of the OMICRON variant and must place above all else the safety and wellbeing of our participants from around the world. We appreciate and cherish the enthusiasm our participants have shown so far and we thank them for all their support and encouragement. We shall keep our promise to deliver an international top-tier event with participants from across the globe. We invite you to join us for the 1000 Miglia Experience UAE, the new gold standard for classic car events in the GCC, at Q4 2022.”
“Our Prologue event in February will provide a taste of what to expect from the full event in the last quarter, unlike anything the region has ever seen before. In a world where the future is gravitating towards homogeneous electric vehicles, the 1000 Miglia Experience UAE Jubilee Edition is perfectly placed to showcase the iconic appeal and incomparable experience of stunning vintage automobiles, in a way in which collectors and the public alike can enjoy them in motion for many years to come.”
