What made the event special?
Speed Fest was unlike any other car and bike rally. Rallies are either for cars or bikes. For example, the famous Cholistan Jeep Rally admits only jeeps. The recently concluded Ghaan River Bed Dirt Bike Rally was exclusively for bikes, but Speed Fest 2019 was different – it had both cars and bikes.
Speed Fest 2019 consisted of 3 main categories:
- Jeep Rally
- Bike Rally
- Auto show
About 40 to 50 Jeep rally participants were there to show their skills on a 1.8 km track for scores of jeep race enthusiasts who had gathered there.
Bike race enthusiasts got to see bikes race in the following categories:
- Enduro Bikes
- Motocross Bikes
