Today our dear ArabGT followers we are happy to announce the return of Exploration Journey program in a new second season filmed with the beast Ford F-150 Raptor 2019 and our colleagues Mousub Shashaa and Karim Deeb.
The start of this season will take place in the Red Sea city of Jeddah in the west coast, our team chose to begin the adventure from Jeddah because it’s the same place that will witness the launch of the Dakar Rally 2020, which will be held for the first time in Saudi Arabia.
After it was held for 30 years in Africa and 11 years in South America, The Arab world is proudly hosting this global motorsport event at the beginning of next year.
Jeddah city is considered the gateway to the Holy Mosque in Mecca, it is only 79 km away, and it is also 420 km away from Medina, and 950 km away from Riyadh the Saudi capital approximately. It is an ancient historical city in the Arabian Peninsula and the second-largest city in Saudi Arabia.
Watch the first episode of Exploration Journey:
Raptor pickup can be described in a simple sentence, “A four-wheel-drive Rally car, specially designed to be driven on paved roads.” As the Ford F-150 Raptor monsters have different suspension systems, compared to the regular F-150 pickups, and the height of the American-made vehicle has also been increased.
It is also wider, to give a brutal external identity that reveals its high capabilities, and it is equipped with parts that make you think it is a rally car and got plates that protect its structure from the bottom when breaking into the toughest types of rocky road
The tour included a visit to the 1,200 years old Imam Shafi’i Mosque, considered to be the oldest mosque in the city of Jeddah, where our team prayed Asr prayer, before we continued our journey and went to the province of Bahra to test the capabilities of the monstrous 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor, and we met Captain Faisal Sharif in this area to end the day
More episodes are to come in the next weeks! Stay tuned for more of “Exploration Journey” with 2019 Raptor, in order to discover some of the most amazing places in Saudi Arabia.
