It’s Dubai’s Version of ‘The Amazing Race’… and the Prize is a Mercedes-Benz!

Ponder this for a moment: You have a better chance of winning a Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupé in Dubai’s upcoming Mercedes-Benz Challenge than you do of hitting the lottery… over your entire lifetime. Why, exactly? Because this activity quest is allowing only 100 teams to participate… and only ONE team is driving away as a winner.

The race is being powered by Rush–A–Way, an exciting, nail-biting adventure race around Dubai, where contesting teams challenge their mental abilities, physical fitness and teamwork. It’s basically a smaller version of The Amazing Race… Dubai-style, of course.
