World E.T and Top Speed records in the world 1/8th and 1/4 mile records have been set and reset in this championship since its inception. But that's a story for another day.

The ADRL story goes back to the beginning of 2008, when Qatar Racing Club founder and president, Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad Al-Thani, decided to invite the world's best racers to compete in a tournament that was the first of its kind in the Gulf region. The event that formed the first brick of the Arabian Drag Racing League Championship today.

ADRL is now in its 11th edition and remains one of the strongest tournaments in the field of motorsports sports in the region.

Every year, the best racer in the Arab region, as well as the champions of the sport from the United States, Europe, Canada, Australia, and South America, participate in it. Thus contributing to Qatar's global sporting standards!
