Byrne is Support Sponsor of Fun Drive for 15th Year

Gulf News Fun Drive

38th Gulf News Fun Drive takes place in the Liwa Desert, UAE on 11-12 January 2019

Seven day drives, 26 overnighters, one Abu Dhabi day drive and three Friday fun drives have been held so far. 

Byrne have been providing rental equipment to the Gulf News Fun Drive since its inception, and have been a Support Sponsor of the event for the last 15 years.

The fun drive will start at Al Fathiya on the Hameem Road and participants will depart after breakfast on the drive through thrilling and challenging desert sections. The drive will end at the camp at the foot of the spectacular Moreeb Dune, where they will stay overnight.

The original idea behind the fun drive was to give people the chance to experience the desert. Unlike today, there were more unknowns off-road in the UAE, where very few people dared to venture.

As a fun event for the whole family, Byrne is delighted to be involved and to showcase our wide range of event equipment which includes power generation, lighting, food and beverage counters, and portaloos and showers.

Byrne has been involved with a huge variety of sporting events in the Middle East. As well as amateur events such as fun runs and drives, we’ve supported professional tournaments such as the Dubai Desert Classic, FIFA Club World Cup and F1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
