The story so far

Sheikh Khalid bin Faisal bin Sultan Al Qassimi’s is one of the biggest stars in Middle East rallying.

He burst onto the scene in 2002, winning both the FIA Middle East Rally Championship (MERC) Gp N and United Arab Emirates Championship titles in his debut season. He then went on to win the Middle East title outright in 2005.

The draw of World Rally Championship competition proved too much to resist in 2005 and 2006, as Sheikh Khalid offset his MERC commitments with a programme of events in the FIA Production Car World Rally Championship.

A string of consistent results in the PWRC helped the UAE driver to step up into the Ford Abu Dhabi World Rally Team in 2007 and he went on to tackle nearly 40 WRC rounds during the next five years with the squad.

After a year out in 2012, Sheikh Khalid completed a seven-round programme with Citroën in 2013 and will continue behind the wheel of one of the French squad’s DS3 WRCs in Sweden, Portugal, Italy and Spain this season. He will also drive a Citroën in the Middle East Rally Championship.
