July 31, 2018: Emirates SkyCargo has transported two Alfa Romeos from Dubai to London for the prestigious Gumball 3000 motor rally, onboard its Boeing 777 freighter.
The freight division of Emirates transported this automotive shipment, an Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio and an Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, in partnership with Gargash, one of the largest distributors of premium and luxury cars in the UAE.
Both cars will compete as ‘Team Alfa’ in Gumball 3000, an annual celebrity motor rally established in 1999, which takes place on public roads at different locations around the world. During the first leg of the rally in the first week of August 2018, Team Alfa will travel from London to Bologna.
The second leg of the rally will see the cars driving around iconic sites in Japan including the historic cities of Osaka, Kyoto and Mt Fuji.
The rally will end in Tokyo on August 12 and Emirates SkyCargo will fly both cars back home to Dubai from Japan.
“The Alfa Romeos, which will be sporting the Emirates logo throughout the rally, are getting first class treatment under Emirates Wheels and will be handled by our trained and experienced staff at Dubai, London and Tokyo,” said Moaza Al Falahi, Emirates vice president, Cargo Product Development and UAE National Affairs.
